The theatrical song cycle about the joys and despairs of love was created by lyricist Jim Payne and composer George Maurer. According to Nautilus, “‘Stations’ combines the lyrical finesse of The Great American Songbook with the sophisticated compositions of one of Twin Cities’ most celebrated jazz musicians.”

Excerpts from “Stations of the Heart” have been featured over the years as part of Nautilus’ Rough Cuts ongoing work series. The completed work is described as funny and poignant meditations on human desire, filtered through a contemporary sensibility and rooted in the bittersweet recognition that “love may be beautiful, but it certainly isn’t pretty”.

COVID restrictions will be in place. Performances will run through October 17 at the Nautilus Music-Theater Studio, 308 Prince St., #190, in Lowertown St. Paul. Tickets are $25 general admission, $20 for students and seniors. For information, go to the Nautilus Music-Theatre Facebook page.
