Directed by Julliard graduate and playwright Or Matias (Musical Director of Broadway's "The Great Comet") and Choreographed by Chloe Treat, The Wave is an original musical about the dangers of fascism. Based on the 1970's experiments conducted by Ron Jones in a high school in Palo Alto CA, the musical is mature and dark in its portrayal of mob culture, collectivism, and the power of loyalty.
This was a fantastic project to debut with Or. The pit orchestra consists of: Mark Dover- clarinet, bass clarinet, percussion; Or Matias- piano, Musical Director; Rocky Martin- drums, cymbals, aux. perc, copyist and performer of drum parts for workshops of The Wave at Indiana University and for the New York screenings of the show.
