Tennessee Williams meets Anne Rice in a subversive, Southern gothic romance. A parasitologist at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum, Trent Varro brings his new lover home to meet the family in New Orleans. Populated with ghosts and parasites, Jacobson’s play mixes the supernatural with science to illuminate hot button issues of gay marriage and equality in a whole new way. It’s at once a ghost story, a love story, and a family story.

 
“Sound designer Bruno Louchouarn floats in chords and brief anthems to accentuate moments of Gothic melodrama.” 
Steven Leigh Morris -LA WEEKLY
“Supported by Bruno Louchouarn’s moody sound design”
Variety
“Richard Hoover's evocatively decaying set, Jeremy Pivnick's spooky lighting, and Bruno Louchouarn's original music and 
sound give this New Orleans mansion the feel of a haunted 
house, which in a very real sense it is.” 
Los Angeles Times
“...helped immensely by Jeremy Pivnick’s stunning lighting design and by the  sounds of Bruno Louchouarn’s musical interludes and by the way his tonal emphasis can actually help the transitions the play makes, often without warning.”
stageandcinema.com
“Richard Hoover's wonderfully quaint and dilapidated set design, Jeremy Pivnick's subdued lighting and Bruno Louchouarn's eerie music and sound design are all first-rate.”

Director Michael Michetti and I wanted to create a music and sound world that would enable fast switches between various places and support the conceptual architecture of the play:  a new generation with new ideals and an academic background, coming into a rather gothic New Orleans family, sinking with patina and complexities--at times supernatural. Sounds of insect, and electronica vie and merge with Jazz trumpet distant licks and smeared viola swamp blues melodies. The supernatural is embodied in bells, from the very  large to the etherial and subliminal.
