  Nero/Pseudo at Fort Fringe


Fort Fringe
607 New York Avenue, NW Washington

Rome has burned down and Nero is toast. Then this stranger shows up. Looks like Nero, sounds like Nero-and when he rocks out, the emperor's fans go berserk. A WSC Avant Bard world premiere, Nero/Pseudo is a hot mash-up of ancient history, glam rock, and the politics of celebrity. Book and lyrics by Richard Byrne, original music by Jim Elkington (Zincs, Horse's Ha) and Jon Langford (Mekons, Waco Brothers).

"...Celebrities are the new royalty; rock stars are the new idols. With bacchanalian excesses on both sides of the equation, is it any wonder that someone decided to make the comparison literal? In the new musical Nero/Pseudo, WSC Avant Bard make a daring, punk rock attempt at setting the question to music. And like the best punk, Nero/Pseudo is a lot of fun, more than a little bit trashy, and - to be honest - messy."

Nero/Pseudo interrogates the view of Nero’s artistic forays as symptoms of his egotism and madness, instead proposing that Nero may have been an artist first and tyrant second.
