'Come Away' at the Producers Club
CubeCity Entertainment, Inc. presents Come Away, by the Moon brothers, in a workshop production, at the Producers Club from the 6 - 8 May 2005.
This new musical sees The Beatles - the British Fab Four - narrate the classic Jewish romance about Ruth and Boaz.
The young widow Ruth (a modern-day Palestinian) leaves her native land of Moab to pledge loyalty to her aging Jewish mother-in-law. In turn, Naomi becomes a matchmaker for Ruth and the kind, handsome landowner, Boaz...proving that if such a pair could get along then, maybe thereÃ¯Â¿Â½s hope today for peace, not only in the Middle East, but in the world beyond.
The Beatles feature in Come Away as 'The Minstrels', who find themselves in the employment of the storyÃ¯Â¿Â½s hero, Boaz. The Beatles act as narratives to move the story along, while also playing into the storyÃ¯Â¿Â½s final resolution.
