A Day at the Museum
Music by Brian Wilbur Grundstrom
Nudity, comedy, and art...set to music.
A wordless comedy set to an original orchestral score by Brian Wilbur Grundstrom. A nude woman in a painting looks out at people whose lives intersect while visiting an art museum. A playfully sexy look at love and art.
"Much of the credit for A Day at the Museum’s success, however, has to go to Brian Wilbur Grundstrom’s striking score. It’s a curious, often intoxicating mix of chamber ensemble and electronic timbres. No mere incidental music, Grundstrom’s score works very much like a modern Wagner opera in miniature — leitmotifs letting you know not just who’s on stage, but also if they’re good or bad, happy or sad. Syncing live motion to canned music is a notoriously difficult enterprise. If I had just one wish, it would be that one day, this specific Day will get the real accompaniment it rightfully deserves."
"A Day at the Museum is an artful, surprising, and engaging Capital Fringe work .... Just as vital to this purpose is the score of Brian Wilbur Grundstrom who composed the music and also happens to be the play's producer. A celebrated composer, every step, shrug, head tilt, and double-take taken corresponds to the notes of Grundstrom's strong score."
