"Witches" is the bawdy, clever, nine-lives spanning musical about two women who happen to be witches, and have been so since the beginning of time. As we take a tour through their lives, we see all the highs and lows that affect the career, family, sex- and love life and of the modern day woman/witch and also how she dealt with all those same persecutions and pleasures in her several past lives as Eve, or Lady Macbeth, or Snow White's Stepqueen...
"Witches" ("Hexen") has been successfully staged in its original German version in about two dozen productions in theaters all over Germany and Austria, including at least three times in Berlin alone (Deutsche Oper Berlin, CAMA Theater, Intimes Theater) since 1991. The English language adaptation is by the composer, Danny Ashkenasi.
