Ghost Town: The Musical – A Concept Album
September 9-September 23
Olive lives in Mars, Nebraska, mourning the death of her mother. She and her girlfriend plan to move halfway across the country – until Olive encounters her town’s ghosts, preserved only by the slivers of memory others possess of them. Olive finds herself stuck between uncovering the past and moving forward in life, wondering – Is honoring the memory truly enough if you’re not still there to relive it?
This concept album presents the music of Ghost Town, performed by milkmouth and an incredible team of vocalists and musicians.
