Adrift in Macao

Book and lyrics by Christopher Durang

Music by Peter Melnick

Nominee! Drama Desk Award for Best Music

Set in 1952 in Macao, China, Adrift in Macao is a loving parody of film noir movies. Everyone that comes to Macao is waiting for something, and though none of them know exactly what that is, they hang around to find out.

The characters include your film noir standards, like Laureena, the curvaceous blonde, who luckily bumps into Rick Shaw, the cynical surf and turf casino owner her first night in town. She ends up getting a job singing in his night club – perhaps for no reason other than the fact that she looks great in a slinky dress. And don't forget about Mitch, the American who has just been framed for murder by the mysterious villain McGuffin.

With songs and quips, puns and farcical shenanigans, this musical parody is bound to please audiences of all ages.
