Franz Kafka/Gregor Samsa is the titular character of our show. He acts as a sort of guide as the audience navigates his past, present, and the impact of his stories. Heart wrenching and hilarious, we’re pleased to announce that Franz/Gregor will be played by Will Connolly! Connolly’s history on stage is an exciting one, from making his broadway debut in the Tony-award-winning musical “Once,” playing the original Jeremy in “Be More Chill,” to co-writing/composing the musical “Fly By Night” for which he received a Drama Desk nomination. Welcome to the Kafka family!

Review: With ‘Jagged Little Pill,’ They Finally Fixed the Jukebox

Congrats to Van Dean, president of Broadway Records and co-producer of Jagged Little Pill, on a rave review and fantastic opening night!

Alanis Morissette’s “ironic” fury finds a perfect Broadway musical setting in Diablo Cody’s fiery indictment of, well, everything.

Feel like something off-beat? ‘Kafka’s Metamorphosis: The Musical!’ is for you (Review)

"What would you do if you woke up one morning and discovered that during the night you had turned into a large, ugly insect, replete with a hard shell and creepy multiple legs? Would you immediately launch into a series of challenging calisthenics, or how about singing a medley of Broadway tunes?"

A syracuse.com review from our Auburn show last weekend! Be sure to come check out the last leg of our tour Thursday and Friday at Auburn Public Theater!

Metamorphosis

Gregor Samsa awoke one morning to find that he'd caught the musical theatre bug! Kafka's mystifying and mesmerizing novella comes to hilarious and haunting musical live onstage at this year's fringe from the company behind last year's award-nominated "Orson Welles/Shylock." Tap your toes and sing along with the retelling that Kafka never knew he always wanted."

What a great review out of New York Musical Festival for Kafkamusical Kafka's Metamorphosis: The Musical, running at APT July 26 - August 2. "The treatment of the absurdist source material and this musical's riff on that tone is impressive. Audience members were noticeably smiling throughout." This reviewer went on to say that Kafka's Metamorphosis is certainly ready for prime time, & we couldn't agree more. In New York Musical Festival's history, 49 shows have gone on to mount off-Broadway productions. That's a pretty great track record, so come see this great local show here in Central NY next week so you can say "you saw them back when." Shows July 26,27 & August 1,2 tickets 🎫 to all shows at auburnpublictheater.org or by calling the box office 315-253-6669 Friday’s & Monday’s 10am-2pm
