2.4 Degrees! The Musical

  • Jordana Belaiche

Following on from the stonking success that was 'Apocalypse Boyfriend', this project aimed to expand on themes of climate crisis and musical theatre explored in that work. '2.4 Degrees! The Musical' was an absurdist musical comedy set at the end of this century in a fictional theatre. I wrote the book and lyrics, Danny Lev composed music for this project, Ro Gearty, Fai West and Mallika Joy created costumes, puppetry and set pieces and Jack Hoban was our sound designer. During a residency with Impossible Producing x The Young Vic at the Poly, Falmouth in March 2022, we debuted a scratch version of the show, images can be found below and our songs also were received at MMD's Lionel Bart Memorial Masterclass in March 2023. This project continues to undergo development with a new working title 'The Apollonian', book and lyrics by myself and music by Kat Pegler.
