Theater of the New Ear

Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, Charlie Kaufman | Music: Carter Burwell

Celebrated filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen, along with Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; Being John Malkovich), bring the quirky drama and savage wit of their award-winning movies to the stage in a live reading of two original sound plays set to music by their long time collaborator, composer Carter Burwell. The Coens' Sawbones and Kaufman's Hope Leaves the Theater come to life with eight extraordinary actors, scripts in hand, joined on stage by a sound-effects artist and a live band to create multiple characters and parallel realities, located somewhere between melodrama and comedy.
