La Casa Azul, The Musical

This new, immersive and intimate production of LA CASA AZUL, The Musical will debut at The Phoenix Theatre Cultural Centre, Indianapolis.

LA CASA AZUL, an award winning musical, is inspired by the intense and turbulent life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. With original music, lyrics and choreography by Gregory Glade and lyrics by Kate Ayers, LA CASA AZUL is directed by Lance Gray and is performed by a talented cast from national and local platforms. 

New theatre, new actors, new artistry . . . a vibrant story of a famous female icon. A relatable musical, LA CASA AZUL is bold and beautiful, yet intimate and personal just like the layered life of Frida Kahlo. “It is a universal story of the human spirit and how we are able to take misfortune and tragedy and turn them into immense truth and beauty,” says creator Gregory Glade. “At the core, there is a simple love story surrounded by complex challenges. Struggle is within us all, yet we are capable of transforming pain and strife into raw, creative beauty as Frida Kahlo did,” he adds. 

LA CASA AZUL is a completely sung-through musical and is presented with a unique fusion of musical theatre, opera, and dance. These diverse artistic components help bring drama and intensity to the story. 

“Everything is important to this production and they all have to work together – the story, the music, the characters, the costumes, the sets, the lighting,” says Gregory Glade. “So many elements have the potential to inspire the audience members,” he adds.
