Frank Black’s rock opera is really happening

on September 29, 2010, 4:00pm

We told you back in June that a Houston theater was turning a recent album by Frank Black (aka Black Francis aka that Pixies guy) into a full-fledged rock opera. These things can hit snags (see also: the U2 Spider-Man musical), but this one is really happening. The Catastrophic Theatre unveils Bluefinger: The Fall and Rise of Herman Brood on November 12. The play runs through December 18 in a 100-seat room, meaning you Houstonites might want to buy those tickets now. The price is “pay-what-you-can” (they suggest $20).
