About

The Inspiration

“After a period of group prayer, a student made a movement to end the meeting. Suddenly, Susan emitted some strange guttural sounds and fell to the floor. She started thrashing about, as if in some sort of seizure. Susan's sister must have recognized what was happening, for she ordered us to gather around and place our hands on Susan's prostrate body. I refused to budge from my position and froze in horror. I will never forget the first comprehensible sound that came from Susan; she screamed my name with such an urgency that the chill still travels down my spine whenever I recall this moment.” from Beating a Demon, Physical Dimensions of Spiritual Warfare by Bobby Jindal.

Help us exorcise Bobby Jindal's "Love Demon" the only way possible. Through song.

“In a voice I had never heard before or since, Susan accused me: "Bobby, you cannot even love Susan." Before I even noticed the sound of her voice, I thought it funny that Susan would refer to herself in the third person. Then the full impact of the words hit me. Forgetting the frantic students around me and even poor Susan lying on the floor, I thought of our conversation the day before. The real argument had been whether I was capable of loving Susan. I needed the answer to be yes, more for my sake than ours.” from Beating a Demon, Physical Dimensions of Spiritual Warfare by Bobby Jindal.

Because he cannot love, he hates love. This is a demon which can only be confronted through song. Please. Help us, help Bobby.

Risks and challenges

As many fans of film and exorcisms well know, there is a real risk in doing anything that features demonic possession and the ritual removal of said demons. From the many misfortunes, injuries and mishaps on the set of "The Exorcist" we know there can be pitfalls. But to bring this vision to you, we are holding our breaths and doing the work necessary to make this the best Rock Opera about demonic possession the world has ever seen.

Aside from this, it is a matter of getting our cast together, the orchestra in place and all the last minute things that can always happen even in productions not about spirits of the nether-regions.
