Bound and blindfolded in a war-torn country, two hostages take refuge in music, memory and each other in the Chicago premiere of this provocative indie-rock musical.
"A haunting presence...quite moving performances from both Roos and O'Connell" (3 out of 4 stars)
Chicago Tribune -- Chris Jones
"Undeniably moving to its breathtaking end"
"With a ripped-from-the-headlines plot and compelling performances, the show brings a glimmer of hope to a horrific nightmare."
"HOSTAGE SONG is an eye-opening, stomach-churning, soul-stirring, rock and roll fantasy"
"It's refreshing to see efforts as brazen and unconventional as Hostage Song"
