Pacific Power presents “Deep Love” on Friday, October 23 at the Gesa Power House Theatre at 7:30 p.m.
“Deep Love” is a glimpse at life through the eyes of a young widow struggling to meet the demands of her deceased husband’s undying love. Sweethearts turn into adversaries in pursuit of what they cannot live without.
“Deep Love” is a rock opera – a theatrical story told entirely through music. Intense orchestral sounds are combined with the fun of a rock band to create a unique soundscape for each scenario and character.
This rock opera features the vocals of Jon Peter Lewis from American Idol and The Voice, and Amy Whitcomb from The Voice and The Sing-Off. The musical was co-written by Ryan Hayes, who appeared with Lewis on The Voice as the duo Midas Whale.
In July, “Deep Love” was selected by a jury of Tony Award-winning directors and producers to be one of only ten featured shows of the New York Musical Theatre Festival.
“We are pleased to see Deep Love reaching more and more people every year,” says writer Ryan Hayes. “This will be our biggest season yet.”
“The creative team of Deep Love is exceptionally talented,” adds Jon Peter Lewis. “Performing the show in New York City was an incredible experience for everyone who has worked so hard on this project and connecting with people in the city’s theater world has been an invaluable experience.”
Reserved Seating tickets ($32-$28) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
Doomed by her namesake, Constance is trapped in a world where she is not permitted to change. And so she suffers as she gives up that which would make her happy all for the sake of love.
Old Bones is the ghost of Constance’s first love. Although she cannot see him, we are assured that his love for her is strong enough to keep him by her side. He is tender, yet strong as he offers protection to Constance in exchange for her faithfulness to their earthly vows.
In the eternal struggle for peace, Friedrich determines that it is constancy that his life lacks and seeks it fully in Constance. When the jealously of Old Bones drives Constance away from Friedrich, he abandons the notion of earthly peace for the more sure and lasting peace of death.
Unsatisfied by how things ended between herself and Friedrich, Florence obsessively watches the ongoings of Friedrich and Constance while scoffing at Friedrich’s desire to change. At the death of Friedrich she identifies Constance as the culprit and takes it upon herself to execute justice.
