Precipice: What Took Us Over the Edge
Music by: Matthew Nassida
Lyrics & Book by: Lex Rigsby
When people stand at the edge of the world; when they are presented with a difficult choice, what will they do? Will they choose to return to solid ground, or does taking a leap to find out what could lie beyond entice them to more.
Precipice was Matthew’s senior thesis at Northern Kentucky University and premiered on November 8th, 2019 under the title What You Will.
The show was then taken on tour through the writers hometown’s of Haubstadt, IN on November 30th, 2019 and Richmond, KY on December 1st, 2019.
The staged show was picked to be performed at Footlighters Inc. in Newport, KY in 2020 but was closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The director of this premier, Amanda Marasch, then spearheaded an online filmed production which can be watched on youtube.
