Tender, funny, and incredibly moving, this contemporary love story will grab you from the inside out. Klook and Vinette are two lost souls trying to find themselves in one another. Against all odds and with the past at their heels, together they take a tentative stab at happiness. Watch as the story unfolds before your eyes at The Ballad of Klook and Vinette on Friday, May 17th.
Staged in the intimate Kleberg Stage at ZACH Theatre, this is a seductive premiere musical about inevitability and the thrill of falling in love. Infused with lyrical prose, jazz, blues, and soul, The Ballad of Klook and Vinette is a mesmerizing theatrical experience you won't want to miss.
ZACH's Producing Artistic Director Dave Steakley explains why bringing The Ballad of Klook and Vinette to Austin is special to him: "The form of this musical is as revolutionary as Hamilton and I'm interested in work that moves the art form forward to respond to a contemporary audience. The work is exciting and innovative, and it is a perfect vehicle for ZACH stars CHANEL (Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill) and Roderick Sanford (A Christmas Carol), two of the greatest singers in Austin, who have a long history of thrilling audiences on our stages."
Founded in 1932 as Austin Civic Theatre, ZACH Theatre is the longest continuously running theatre company in the state of Texas, and one of the ten oldest in the country. The company was renamed Zachary Scott Theatre Center in 1968 in honor of Austin-raised, Academy Award-nominated film star, Zachary Scott. The mission of ZACH is to create intimate theatre experiences that ignite the imagination, inspire the spirit, and engage the community.
