Back when the Gnap! team was writing 69 Love Scenes, our very loose adaptation of the Magnetic Fields' album, we discovered that we playwrights all had huge musical crushes on Fleetwood Mac. We joked that our next play should be a very loose adaptation of Rumours. Well, 69 LS writer Monique Daviau went off to grad school and went and wrote that very play. Gold Dust is an extremely fictionalized view of the making of Rumours, an album unparalleled in rock history for the number of songs on it written about or for or sharply aimed at the very bandmates playing the tunes.
Gold Dust is an ambitious play about love, infidelity, competition, success and failure, the power of being in a band, and the ravages of time. Oh, and in its final form will feature a Chorus of Stevies and a full band playing original, Fleetwoodesqe music.
We want to make this play as good as we can before we mount a full production. So, we're asking you, our friends and fans and audience, to come be a part of our process. On March 29 and 30 at 8 pm at Salvage Vanguard Theater, we'll be presenting a work-in-progress staged reading of the script. Playwright Mo Daviau will be there, and after the readings we'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback as we eye revisions for a true debut sometime in 2014. We'd love it if you could attend.
