A theatrical pop song cycle that shifts expectations of theater and live music, Ghost Rings burrows and soars through the layers of love among best friends and a family band of yesteryear to create a feminist reclamation of what makes a rock star. With text and lyrics by Tina Satter and music by Chris Giarmo and Erin Markey, the narrative contrasts romantic memories of two friends with Satter’s real-life relationship to her estranged sister. She plays in an invented band with her Half Straddle collaborators in this vulnerable and harrowingly funny melodic reckoning.

When I saw this wildly original theatrical concert, infused with a pop power-ballad sensibility, I was struck by its poignant story about two young women in an imaginary band. Their singing taps into the surging feelings of adolescence, of self-doubt and self-discovery, and of the growing pains of friendship.
