Love Me More: An Unauthorised Mitski Musical

love me more poster

Abbey (she/her) and Val (they/she) are high school best friends (but maybe something more?? or not??) trying to figure out questions of identity, desire, intimacy and friendship in the months leading up to finishing school. Val thinks that no matter how chaotic and painful life seems, she can always rely on the more put-together, functional Abbey - that is, until a mysterious man called Dan enters Abbey’s life, and suddenly everything that both of them took for granted about who they were and where they stand in the world seems to disintegrate before their eyes.

This show is a dive into the pains, joys, loves and heartbreaks of existing in modern America as an Asian/Asian-American femme, and aims to portray and honour these experiences completely unapologetically. Celebrating Mitski’s work as crucial in its centring of these experiences, while also attempting to expand the resonance of her work into a queer/non-binary space as well, this show will be colloboratively developed by… well, basically whoever wants to join us. While we particularly encourage people who identify as Asian/Asian-American and/or women/femmes to reach out, we are committed to doing our best to find a place for anyone interested in the project. If you’re interested in writing, directing, performing, set design, costuming, or you play an instrument, we strongly encourage you to get in touch! You can reach Rose and Catherine at rose.bae@yale.edu and catherine.alam-nist@yale.edu - we’ll be happy to call/Zoom with you to answer any and all questions :)

All rights for Mitski’s music belongs to her. We will be using it purely in an educational artistic setting and will not be making any money off of it.
