The Kitchen presents the world premiere of Electric Lucifer, an electronic rock opera about suffering and redemption based on the 1970s concept albums of the late Canadian electronic music pioneer Bruce Haack. Having dreamed of creating a live show based on Haack’s work since he first encountered the recordings in the 1990s, Findlay brings together a stellar team of performers and designers to bring you a dizzying, outlandish, and satisfying wild religious fantasia.

Electric Lucifer is created and directed by Jim Findlay, with music and lyrics by Bruce Haack, musical adaptation and additional original music by Philip White, choreography by Raja Feather Kelly, set and video design by Jeff Sugg and Findlay, lighting design by Masha Tsimring, costume design by Enver Chakartash and Carter Kidd, sound design by Philip White, and dramaturgy by Ian Belton.

The cast features Okwui Okpokwasili as The Electric Lucifer, Robert M. Johanson as Jesus, Brendan Connelly as the Archangel Gabriel, and Seth BraleyNikki CalongeJake DenneyAmy Gernux, and Cyrus Moshrefi as Lucifer’s “Silverheads.” The band includes Connolly, Shayna DunkelmanNathan Koci, and Lester St. Louis.
