The Trouble With Words Premieres at The Fringe

Coeurage Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Gregory Nabours' The Trouble with Words, an exciting new song cycle for 3 men and 3 women that explores the relationships people have with words as well as with each other.

It is directed by Patrick Pearson and stars Coeurage Theatre Company members Julianne Donelle, Aimee Karlin, Chris Roque, and Ryan Wagner with guest artists Josh Eddy and Sarah Phillips.

Composer credits include Sequins! - The Show Choir Musical, SteamTowne, and The Trouble With Words. Gregory is the musical director for Ryan Black's 88's Cabaret and Ryan O'Connor Eats His Feelings, and is the proud Resident Composer for Coeurage Theatre Company, where he appeared as Frank ‘N Furter in last year’s hit production of Rocky Horror Show.
