Florencia Iriondo's South will be available for free streaming for one day only December 1. The new musical, running Off-Broadway at SoHo Playhouse through November 15, won the 2023 Pipeline Arts Foundation Award for New Musical Theatre.
Set to South American folk-pop music, South follows an Argentinian woman who has only ever wanted a sibling, but things quickly change when she gets more than she asked for as she journeys from the southernmost tip of South America to the sprawling streets of New York City.
The musical's writer Florencia Iriondo stars in the production alongside Federico Diaz on guitar and Latin Grammy Award winner Agustin Uriburu on cello and guitar. Diaz also serves as music director.
South features a book, lyrics, and music by Florencia Iriondo and dramaturgy by Chris Burney. The musical was developed in residency at The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center and New York Stage & Film.
The original cast album of South was released by Iriondo in September. The album is recorded and sound engineered by Sebastian Notte at Estudios Moeblio, with mixing by Norberto Villagra (Fort Music), and mastering by Gustavo Fourcade (Steps Ahead).
