The Fooligan & The Bridges of Madness  

Inspired by the Faust legend, Edward Gorey, and the myth surrounding blues guitarist, Robert Johnson, Al Seed resurrects his on-stage alter ego, The Fooligan, to present The Bridges of Madness – the world’s first 18th century, jazz-blues band. Through songs, poems, soundscape, movement and storytelling the audience is taken on a hilarious theatrical journey, playfully exploring themes of mortality, the supernatural and the nature of evil.

The show is a development of Al Seed’s Herald Angel Award winning solo show, The Fooligan (2008).

Direction & Vocals: Al Seed

David Paul Jones: Piano
