HERE BE DRAGONS is a brand-new musical from the Brooklyn-based band Apollo Run. At its core, the show is fundamentally about change: what does it take to change a society? A government? A relationship? A person? The world? Yale is full of people ready to take on the world with the revolutionary fervor of the resistance in the show, but riddled by the same doubts as the show’s protagonists. We want change; what’s the best way to achieve it? What does a victory look like? We’re exploring new work, new music, new theater, and everyone is invited. HERE BE DRAGONS is a revolution wrapped in a rock concert, and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen.
