SALT LAKE CITY, UT — 10/1/2019 Deep Love: A Ghostly Rock Opera returns to the stage in Salt Lake City this October for its 6th annual Halloween tradition. The production will play October 17-19 at Rose Wagner Theater 138 Broadway, Salt Lake City, UT 84101. Show starts at 7pm.
Deep Love: A Ghostly Rock Opera is a story of love and loss where sweethearts become adversaries in pursuit of what they cannot live without. Told entirely through haunting rock and roll, Deep Love features Jon Peter Lewis (American Idol, Midas Whale on The Voice), Amy Whitcomb (The Voice, The Sing Off), Melanie Stone, and Garrett Sherwood. Heartwarming and heartbreaking, it promises to delight all ages. Audience members are encouraged to arrive dressed in their best funeral attire.
Deep Love: A Ghostly Rock Opera is the brainchild of songwriters Ryan Hayes and Garrett Sherwood. Jon Peter Lewis, who was an American Idol finalist before he competed on The Voice with Hayes as the folk duo Midas Whale, began collaboration on the project just after its creation in 2010 while they lived in Rexburg, Idaho. Over the last nine years, the audience for Deep Love has grown from the two-dozen attendees at a reading in Lewis’ living room, to thousands of devoted fans across the mountain west. In 2015 Deep Love: A Ghostly Rock Opera was selected as a featured production in the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF)”, following which was invited to be workshopped by the Johnny Mercer Writer’s Colony at the Goodspeed Theatre. “Deep Love has been a labor of love from the beginning and with nine years of lessons learned, this season’s production promises to be the best yet.” says Garrett Sherwood. Deep Love: A Ghostly Rock Opera has been called “A Polished Show” by The New York Times; “A credible sounding rock amalgam of the likes of Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Aerosmith…The lyrics are skillfully contemporary” by Theater Scene; and “Fabulously ghoulish!” by Backstage.com.
