DREAMING OF THUNDER ROAD

August 3 & 4th @ Clear Space Theatre Company, Rehoboth, DE

The screen door slams, Mary's dress sways, Like a vision, she dances across the porch as the radio plays Roy Orbison singing for the lonely” 

-Thunder Road Bruce Springsteen (1974) 

30 years later Bruce Springsteen’s rock n’ roll anthem “Thunder Road”  awakens the dream of taking the road to places unknown. Does Mary accept the invitation to ride in the passenger seat out on Thunder Road or does she stay on the porch listening to the ecstatic heartbreak of Roy Orbison’s music? Vocalist, actress, MC Rachel Murdy, her musical partners Matthew Milligan on guitar, Peter Szep on piano, Joey Slater on percussion, and fellow supporting female vocalists set the stage for Mary. 

 

Dreaming of Thunder Road: songs of Bruce Springsteen and Roy Orbison” features both platinum popular and quiet deep cuts from Springsteen and Oribison’s work. It presents the songs as you’ve never seen or heard them before. Come for an expressionistic cabaret of playful radio dreams inspired by Bruce Springsteen’s Mary from “Thunder Road”.
