Hurray for the Riff Raff Announces Stage Adaptation of The Navigator

Alynda Segarra worked with writer, actor, and director C. Julian Jimenéz to re-work their 2017 LP

Hurray for the Riff Raff has announced a new musical adaptation of their 2017 album, The Navigator. Bandleader Alynda Segarra developed the new work with writer, director, and actor C. Julian Jimenéz. The pair will share an in-progress presentation of The Navigator on June 9 and 10 at Joe’s Pub in New York.

The updated iteration of The Navigator will feature the album’s original songs, newer material, and a re-worked narrative, according to a press release. Segarra shared a statement about the evolution of The Navigator:

When I wrote The Navigator [album], it was written as a soundtrack to the story of my character Navita Milagros Negron. And when I recorded it in 2016, I had a first draft of the accompanying play in my back pocket but I had no idea how I could make the vision become a reality. Now years later, I am so proud to be partnering with C. Julian Jimenez to heighten this project.

Hurray for the Riff Raff’s most recent record is last year’s Life on Earth. Segarra shared the new songs “Resistance Rockers” and “Let Her in the Sky” in a deluxe edition of Life on Earth released earlier this month. 

Hurray for the Riff Raff is performing at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival on Sunday, July 23. Tickets are on sale now.
