Music Theatre of Madison's HEPHAESTUS - A New Musical

  • Heph with flames  Slider Image

Last summer, Music Theatre of Madison held a workshop production which showed a new musical in progress. Music Theatre of Madison took audience suggestions, enhanced the script and score, and now brings the full production of HEPHAESTUS (heh-FEST-us), by Madison native Nathan Fosbinder, to the stage. 

HEPHAESTUS tells the story of the physically deformed, oft-forgotten Greek God of fire. Cast down to Earth by his mother, the jealous and powerful Hera, he reaches into his soul and identifies his strength as an artisan to win back his spot on Mount Olympus...where it turns out, the "lame" God was one of the most powerful assets. Soaring contemporary music, beautiful costumes, and the Greek traditions of comedy and tragedy mesh together in this premiere that truly belongs to Madison.
