In an opium den at the turn of the 20th century, Willow sacrifices her life to pay off her father's debt by working in an occult underground society. In this musical exploration of fairy tales, myths, and spiritualism, Williow fights to find light not only in the grim shadow-world around her, but also within herself. This production focused on telling the story through space and color. The production design led the audience from the safe, sterile world on Earth, into the lacivious, tempestuous depths of The Cave.
