Highway to Hell

David Lynch's sweirdest movie comes to the stage.


Oberlin College sets the stage tonight for the American premiere of Olga Neuwirth’s adaptation of Lost Highway. The Austrian composer’s musical is a straight retelling of David Lynch’s 1997 mindfuck about a jazz musician who suspects his wife is cheating on him. After she’s killed, he transforms into a young mechanic and begins a new life.

The production features a full cast alongside the school’s Contemporary Musical Ensemble, which performs Neuwirth’s avant-garde score. A campus TV crew even shot film that unspools during the play. After its debut this weekend, the show travels to New York for a two-night run at Columbia University.
Feb. 8-10, 8 p.m.
