Blood & Fire

a multi-award winning musical

A fast paced Victorian saga,
where Reformers and Thugs collide and Love battles Violence and Greed.

If you like Downton Abbey, you’ll love this take on London’s early 1900’s. Amidst the backdrop of the Salvation Army’s mission to clean up and civilize the gritty London streets, a wealthy irreligious doctor and devout salvation army lass try not to fall in love with each other.

  1. “It’s a Good Time to Be Alive in London!”
At dinner of the wealthy Dr. Remsen’s West End London home, the family and guests exchange light conversation.

2. “The Word is Love”

Michael, a new -practicing doctor, has found purpose helping the Christian based Salvation Army, despite his own irreligious beliefs. After a particularly long day treating impoverished patients, he steps out onto a rooftop for a breath of fresh winter air. Amelia, devoted to God, has been working as his assistant, and joins him under the cold clear night sky. The two try to find common ground.

3. Who Is Booth?!

Amidst the crowded streets of London, many are preparing for the arrival of General William Booth, leader of the Salvation Army. Booth’s mission to clean up the streets and bring respect to the poor is both lauded by some and dreaded by others, (bar keeps, madams, police, and thugs.) When the Salvation Army band marches through the streets to announce Booth’s arrival, their religious hymns are taunted as the ne’er-do-wells sing along, changing the religious words to crude lyrics.

4. “Follow Your Heart”

Amelia gives warmhearted guidance to Clara, a troubled teenager whose horrible father tried to sell her into prostitution.

Originally staged at the York Theater;
directed by Damien Gray
music director: Loren Van Brenk
