Town Hall is proud to partner with The Bushwick Book Club Seattle for its twelfth mainstage season presenting concerts of original music inspired by literature. Each event showcases a lineup of local, professional musicians and artists each offering a fresh response to that evening’s source text, plus extras like an audience quiz, short film, or scholarly introduction. Book choices range from whimsical to solemn, classic to contemporary, and most every place in between.
This event will feature original music and art inspired by Alexandre Dumas’ The Count of Monte Cristo.
Imprisoned on false charges on the eve of his wedding, Edmond Dantès is left with no choice but to escape at all costs, claim a hidden treasure that may or may not be real, and stage one of the most famous revenge stories in literary history.
“A fixture of Western civilization’s literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood.” -Luc Sante
