Pirate Lives! The Musical!

Book by David Marino
Music by Stephen Gilbane
Lyrics by David Marino (additional lyrics by Stephen Gilbane, Deana Tolliver, and Sasha Goldberg)

Directed by David Marino


Cultures clash when Captain Jonathan Emerald Sherry dubiously enlists Britain's bourgeois as crewmen aboard his once-feared—though unfortunately-named—pirate ship, The Coward. While the captain fights tooth and nail to recapture his ship’s notoriety, havoc rages on deck as the novice cutthroats navigate otherworldly encounters, romantic entanglements, and secret identities as they adapt to life on the high seas. With a pursuing foe drawing nearer, do the misfit buccaneers have what it takes to make The Coward brave again?

Pirate Lives! The Musical! is supported in part by a grant from the Watertown Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
