This is a story of passion- passion for life, for one's work, and for other people. Zara is in NYC to star in a Greek tragedy as the tragic romantic lead opposite a heart-throb movie star. But as she sinks deeper into the theatre, Zara realizes she may drown in its madness. Add a murder, a forceful director, a girl who shines brighter than her lighting designs, and sentences so beautiful you'll be dog-earring pages, and the result is nothing short of extraordinary.

— From Echo After Echo

Description


Debuting on the New York stage, Zara is unprepared -- for Eli, the girl who makes the world glow; for Leopold, the director who wants perfection; or for death in the theater.

Zara Evans has come to the Aurelia Theater, home to the visionary director Leopold Henneman, to play her dream role in Echo and Ariston, the Greek tragedy that taught her everything she knows about love. When the director asks Zara to promise that she will have no outside commitments, no distractions, it's easy to say yes. But it's hard not to be distracted when there's a death at the theater -- and then another -- especially when Zara doesn't know if they're accidents, or murder, or a curse that always comes in threes. It's hard not to be distracted when assistant lighting director Eli Vasquez, a girl made of tattoos and abrupt laughs and every form of light, looks at Zara. It's hard not to fall in love. In heart-achingly beautiful prose, Amy Rose Capetta has spun a mystery and a love story into an impossible, inevitable whole -- and cast lantern light on two young women, finding each other on a stage set for tragedy.
