The Highly Acclaimed -The Ape Woman-, A Rock Opera by May V. Oskan returns to the Pit Stop. The opera is built around the story of a 19th-century Mexican woman who spent most of her adult life being gawked at in freak shows because of a rare condition that gave her the appearance of an ape woman. The featured musicians are Ms. Oskan's two sisters, Nina Violet and Marciana Jones, who sang and played viola and autoharp, respectively; her mother, Michele Jones, on guitar; Adam Lipsky playing piano and organ; Rob Myers on drums; and Jerome Badot, playing bass. The speaking roles were exuberantly barked and spoken by actors Christopher Kann, Christopher Roberts, Justin Taylor, Adam Petkus, and Paul Padua.

The Pit Stop
The impact of the music and the performances reduced what could have been a garish story to a through-line of narration on which Ms. Oskan hung her superb collection of songs. She exercised her considerable skills as a songwriter, a performer, and arranger directing the skilled band and performers she had behind her. There were extended standing ovations each night. -MV Times
