“And Then There Were None” – Spring Awakening

Music: Duncan Sheik   Lyrics: Steven Sater

Agatha Christie’s famous mystery And Then There Were None was serialized in a U.S. newspaper beginning on this day until July 1, 1939 before being published as a novel in 1940.  This musical is set in the late 1800s but uses alternative rock music to tell the story of teenagers coming of age in a sexually oppressed society.  During this number, a desperate young man loses hope as he receives a written reply from an adult friend denying his request to aid him in fleeing the country.
