The concert will feature hit songs form the award-winning NYMF production of Dust Can’t Kill Me, a bold new folk musical about five wayward souls cast into a dust storm with the promise of paradise. Additionally, the concert will premiere songs from two new collaborations: We Are Pilgrims, a millennial reimagining of The Canterbury Tales as a road trip to a modern Woodstock developed with Jennifer Jancuska and The BringAbout, and Louis Sachar’s Holes, a new high-spirited adaptation of the beloved children’s novel. Heifetz and Vasiljevic reunite after their award winning work on Dust Can’t Kill Me at NYMF and (Le) Poission Rouge.
