Mr. Burns, a post-electric play

By Anne Washburn

Directed by Jonathan Michaelsen

Musical Staging and Choreography by Liza Gennaro

Musical Direction by Ray Fellman

Associate Producers: Jocelyn Bowie and David Semmel

When Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns, a post-electric play opened in New York in 2013, the New York Times raved, “… downright brilliant… [this play] has arrived to leave you dizzy with the scope and dazzle of its ideas.”

Now Indiana University will bring Washburn’s startling dystopian landscape to life, directed by department chair, Jonathan R. Michaelson. In a fallen American future, a band of survivors retell Simpson’s episodes in an attempt to conjure a shared, comforting past. But as the years pass, these tales take on the symbolic power of religion.
