The Father of Songs is a new rock musical by Tom Slot produced by Original Binding Productions. Loosely based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, it follows the troubled love story of Blaine, a rock guitarist who longs for a different life, and Elysia, a young ingenue of the stage. Set in a gritty underworld overshadowed with abuse, addiction, and seduction, the couple literally prepares to walk through hell to break free of their past. Set to a raucous Rock 'N Roll score that makes the pit band sound like a punk version of The E Street Band, The Father of Songs continues in the musical vein of shows like Rent, American Idiot, and Spring Awakening, while examining the role of love, faith, and belief in the modern age.
