Primal Scream, the Musical

Primal Scream Foundation
Music by David Foster and Arthur Janov
Script by Arthur Janov and France Janov
Directed by Jim Fall
Produced by Marie Ferro

Primal Scream, the comical and powerful new musical, is adapted from the best-selling book and teams legendary music composer David Foster with psychologists and playwrights France and Arthur Janov. It frames a compelling story of two people who cannot love due to their childhood feelings, and of four other patients, each resolving problems through moments rendered in provocative, whimsical scenes, underscored by explosively entertaining music. Primal Scream is an exhilarating and unique theatrical experience.
