ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Based on the premise that everyone deserves one song, Angelmakers explores the motives and moments of nine real-life serial killers in a manner audiences and critics have called “brutal,” “thoughtful,” and “surprisingly beautiful.” Experience this stirring new collection of songs in a variety of styles artfully befitting their subjects, including “Teeth” (a song for ten-year-old Mary Bell), “How the Devil Sings” (dedicated to Pentecostal Velma Barfield), “Michigan” (a ballad for Aileen Wuornos), and “I’m Sorry, Everybody” (for the 19th-century nurse Jane Toppan). Not gory, lurid or sensationalistic, the concert-play instead serves as a simultaneous study of feminine rage and radical empathy.

Featuring Lebanese vocalist/ guitarist Milia Ayache, this recording is produced by Real/Time Interventions, with performances by Zorahna (bass, keyboard, guitar, background vocals), Michele Dunlap (drums) and lyrics and music by playwright and songwriter Molly Rice (Futurity: A Musical By the Lisps, Canary, The Saints Tour).

Here's what people had to say about our electrifying Pittsburgh premiere of the live show:

"'Angelmakers: Songs for Female Serial Killers' is no dinner-theater hokum, nor is it a theater-of-cruelty thriller. It’s thoughtful, careful, restrained and — surprisingly — beautiful. Rice’s music does cartwheels to accommodate both the depicted killer and the angle of the lyrics." --Sean Collier, Pittsburgh Magazine

"An engrossing new stage work...If it’s provocative to have empathy for killers, the troupe pulls it off, thanks largely to Rice’s lyrical gifts." -- Bill O'Driscoll, City Paper

"Holy sh*t. This amazing piece...is one of the best things I have seen in Pittsburgh. This exploration of female rage and violence is at the same time brutal and subtle. Missing it would be a huge mistake. I wish I could string together all the magic words to convince you to see this, but I am actually too rocked from the experience to be very good with words. So just trust me. Go see it." --Molly McCarter, professor at CMU

"See this show. See it for the way it embraces complex and troubled human beings with compassion, see it for a meditation on the myriad ways women have been displaced, maligned, silenced and stifled, see it for Molly Rice's brilliant songwriting, for Rusty Thelin's sensitive staging, see it to be in the room with gifted musicians...Just go!" -- Cynthia Croot, theater artist and director

"It's fabulous-- writing, singing concept, fabulous-- don't miss it." -- James Simon, audience member
