Bartleby, the Scrivener is one of several explorations we have made into musical theatre short forms, and in particular the connection to the short story form. In Herman Melville’s tale we found an intriguing ambiguity and a surprising amount of humor, and have been please as our audiences respond to those same qualities. Those who haven’t thought of Bartleby since their school days may be surprised at how lively the story is and how modern it remains
