|a highly unusual seating chart|
Dave Malloy, the composer, lyricist, book writer and orchestrator of the piece and originator of the role Pierre Off Broadway, has a gruff, bearlike demeanor and voice, and his Pierre was a grounding force in that extraordinary cast. They are an athletic bunch, from leads to chorus and ensemble, moving among and around the audience at all levels. This production has no second or third wall let alone a fourth.
