The Great Heathersby Heist, a new musical written and directed by BPT alum Brian Tuttle, opens in its world premiere at 11:11 Theatre Company (where Tuttle is also Artistic Director) this week.
The Heathersby House is a beautiful museum in the heart of Boston that features a priceless heirloom art collection. Unfortunately the museum is only famous for one thing: theft. Twelve years ago thieves made off with $20 million in paintings. Now three down-on-their-luck friends see opportunity where others see only empty frames. If someone else could steal paintings, why couldn’t a trio of bumbling idiots make off with some artistic loot too? In this world premiering comedy, everyone comes for the art, but they stay for the heist.
Check out 11:11’s blog for behind-the-scenes goodies including a musical preview and interview with the show’s composer/lyricist (and production musical director) Erin Murray.
