In the turbulent sea that is the music industry, SIREN’S DEN: A ROCK MUSICAL, written by Rori Nogee, is a modern twist on the myth of the ancient Greek sirens who lured sailors to their deaths with their songs.
Our siren is Skylar Cole, a seductive indie rock singer in NYC, who performs at the popular music venue, The Siren’s Den. Skylars biggest fan is Remy Morgan, a young, aspiring singer who finds that her songwriting is fueled by her time spent with Skylar. Remy soon finds herself drawn into a world of drugs, lust and empty promises.
Will Remy find success? Or will she fall prey to Skylar’s siren song forever?
A semi-finalist in the 2016 New York New Work’s Theater Festival, SIREN’S DEN: A ROCK MUSICAL is a full-length rock musical about the emptiness of fame, the blindness of love, and the healing powers of music. It features 12 powerhouse performers and an original score with driving rock melodies in the vein of Rent and Spring Awakening.
SIREN’S DEN A ROCK MUSICAL also appeared in the 2014 West Village Musical Theater Festival and at Under St. Mark’s in 2015 for sold out workshop performances.
The show is a dark, modern twist on the myth of the ancient Greek sirens who lured sailors to their deaths with their songs. Here, the turbulent sea is the music industry, and the siren is Skylar Cole, a seductive indie rock singer in NYC who performs at the popular music venue, The Siren’s Den.
Skylar’s biggest fan is Remy Morgan, a young, aspiring singer who finds that her songwriting is fueled by her time spent with Skylar. Although Remy and Skylar form an immediate bond, their attempts at connection are thwarted by Skylar’s hungry fans known as Vultures, her possessive personal assistant, her suspicious boyfriend, and her own sordid past.
Soon, Remy finds herself drawn into a world of drugs, lust and empty promises, where some idols don’t deserve pedestals and some dreams come with dire consequences.
Will Remy find success, or will she fall prey to Skylar’s siren song forever?

Siren’s Den: A Rock Musical is a new rock opera that echoes All About Eve with a Sapphic twist. It is a realistic timeless tale told in a modern way. Remy Morgan (show creator Rori Nogee) has arrived in big bad New York from the requisite Midwestern state of Ohio. She works as a coat check girl at the Siren’s Den, a music venue reminiscent of CBGB, and that night gets the chance to meet her long-time idol, Skylar Cole (Lindsey Lake). Skylar favors Remy by letting her into her world, and Remy finds the confidence to pursue her music career. She also begins a relationship with Skylar — only to learn she is not the first one to fall for her, and that the others are still around. I found the peripheral characters were more interestingly drawn than the core: Andrea Leach as Jessie, personal assistant/would-be girlfriend to Skylar; Chris Gleim as Logan, the talent scout who was once Skylar’s singing partner, Adam R. Kaster as Garrett, Skylar’s fiancee, and Ruben Navarro as the Bar Manager/Kurtis Katz. They all had a great stage presence and were very clear and engaging in portraying their characters.
