The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway tells the story of a half Puerto Rican juvenile delinquent living in New York City who is swept underground and forced to face bizarre creatures and nightmarish dangers in order to rescue his brother. The show features some of Genesis’s most famous instruments, including a double neck six-string bass guitar and a red seven-piece Ludwig drum kit. In the recreation, the audience gets to experience all 1100 original slide projections, all the songs, all the theatrics, costumes, props and visual effects as well as some of the most captivating music ever written.
