The Devil and Billy Shake, a Rock Opera
Rock-N- Roll is not dead and neither is Billy Shake’s unbreakable spirit! This musical powerhouse is fueled by some of New England’s top voices : Brian Maes, Nick David, and MaryBeth Maes. It tells the story of Billy Shake’s journey into Satan’s world, his confrontation with the Devil, and the ultimate choice he makes based on surprising revelations about his past. A rock score written by rock musicians, a killer pit orchestra, sexy Demonettes, a love story mystery, and timeless tale of good and evil that guarantees you will be laughing and crying at The Devil and Billy Shake Rock Opera.
One Night Only. Saturday, October 29th, doors at 6:30 – performance at 8:00 pm. Tickets $20 and available atwww.lynnauditorium.com.
“In this rock opera about the biggest show on (and beyond) earth: good vs. evil,
Maes and Simpson have reached a new plateau and favorable comparisons to another famous rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind boy would not be out of place.“
Carter Alan, WZLX
