"A louche, lewd and assertively weird fantasia on the life of Rasputin...The musical’s director, Ellie Heyman, approaches the material with gusto, conjuring visual and sonic surprises." - Alexis Soloski, New York Times

Beardo is a Russian indie rock musical. This New York premiere exploded the mad inner workings of Rasputin, the infamous mystic who sexed his way to the fall of the Russian monarchy.
