Outlandish conspiracy theories; misinformation spreading like wildfire; and an infamously controversial trial in the early 90’s.


Yep, this is 17th century New England. 

SALEM is a dark musical comedy that follows two Puritan teenagers, Abby and Betty, as they plant accusations of witchcraft in an attempt to con their way out of the oppressive theocratic swamp town of Salem, Massachusetts. After pushing the limits of townie gossip, they find themselves centered in a web of witchy conspiracies more intricate than they ever could’ve imagined.

With pamphleteers presented as 1690’s cable news anchors, an apparition of the Devil forged from the imagination of a teenaged girl, and deliciously danceable pop musical numbers, this is not your high school English teacher’s take on "The Crucible.”

SALEM was selected for the 2023 Johnny Mercer Foundation’s Writer’s Grove at Goodspeed Musicals. It received a 29 hour industry reading in January 2024 starring Tony nominee John-Andrew Morrison (A Strange Loop), Angie Schworer (Some Like It Hot, The Prom,) Gizel Jiménez (Wicked, Miss You Like Hell), Elizabeth Teeter (Beetlejuice, The Crucible), PJ Adzima (The Book of Mormon), Harrison Bryan, Natalie Charle Ellis (Beetlejuice), Callum Francis (Kinky Boots), J’Quay Gibbs, Lizzy Murray, Tally Sessions (Company, Falsettos), Kathleen Stuart (Hawaii: Five-O), Bronwyn Tarboton (Harmony, Frozen), and Danielle Wade (Mean Girls). The reading was produced by Blair Russell, Ido Gal, and Isaid Corona of Blair Russell Productions (Lizard Boy, Slave Play).
