My friends Harry Einhorn and Lia Tamborra with orchestrations by Bálint Varga wrote an excellent musical about Hypatia, the last librarian of the Library of Alexandria

Last night I got to host them and 20 of my friends for a reading at my apartment in NYC.

Lia Tamborra, center, plays Hypatia. She also co-wrote the music, lyrics, and book with Harry Einhorn.

Set during the apocalyptic end times of the Roman Empire, this immersive, multi-sensory theatrical experience is based on the raucous festivals of ancient Rome and Egypt. One thing is for certain: it’s like no toga party you’ve attended before.

Hear The Songs

As tracks become ready, they’ll be put up on www.SoundCloud.com/hypatiamusical

Party Notes

  • I emailed about about 40 friends last week to see if their schedule was open on April 30th, 2019. 20 people replied in the affirmative.
  • I made this page on Splash for my friends to RSVP on.
  • Mike Smith again helped set up and run the bar and manage a bunch of logistics, thank you Mike! He helps me with a bunch of my events and I couldn’t host nearly as frequently as I do without his help.
  • It was AWESOME!! SO MUCH FUN to host this incredible play in a workshop / reading format in the intimate environment of my apartment.
  • I first saw Hypatia staged at Caveat, a great event space in NYC.
