What happens when you mix the Netflix hit sensation with a Broadway musical? Enter Stranger Sings, a musical parody that just wrapped a 5 week run off-Broadway. We sat down with writer Jonathan Hogue (Book, Music, & Lyrics) to discuss what writing a musical was like, getting it going in the middle of a pandemic, and the cast album recording process (which is available to stream now!)
About Stranger Sings
Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical is a wild and irreverent send-up of the hit Netflix series and all its campy 80’s glory. Join Mike, Eleven, Lucas, Dustin, and the whole Hawkins gang for a night of adventure, thrills, indulgent pop culture references, pubescent angst, heavy synth, poor parenting, convoluted love triangles, cheap effects, singing monsters, and maybe, just maybe, justice for everyone’s favorite frumpy ginger, Barb Holland. Prepare to go Upside Down with Stranger Sings!
