Deep Love Header
Fresh off its New York debut, Deep Love: A Ghostly Rock Opera is returning to Utah, Idaho and a fall tour through Wyoming. Jon Peter Lewis and Ryan Hayes, who competed on The Voice as the folk duo Midas Whale, will star in their original theatrical production, Deep Love, deemed a “polished show with pop ambitions” by the New York Times, at the Wynona Thompson Auditorium in Cody on Thursday October 15th at 7:30pm. Amy Whitcomb, another alum from The Voice, takes on the role of the leading female star in this production.

Deep Love tells the tragic tale of a jealous lover’s reach from beyond the grave. The stage production blends traditional folk melodies with bluesy American rock and is truly a rock opera, as the entire story is told in song.

Deep Love is the brainchild of songwriters Ryan Hayes and close friend Garrett Sherwood.
Jon Peter Lewis, who was an American Idol finalist before he competed on The Voice, stars in the lead role of the ghost Old Bones and is co-producer and director of the show. Talking Broadway gave high marks to his performance, saying, “Lewis wields his voice as a violent caress…” Broadway World chimed in with praise of its own, writing, “Lewis squeezes intimidating tension out of his tenor.” Over the last five years, the audience for Deep Love has grown from the two dozen people who attended a reading in Lewis’ living room to thousands of devoted fans, as the company has been touring regional theaters.

In August 2014, the teamed launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to help fund the expansion of the show. One year later, Deep Love was selected from hundreds of candidates by a grand jury of Tony Award-winning directors and producers to be one of ten featured musicals produced for the 2015 Next Link Project of the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF), which occurred this past July.

Hayes and Lewis met fellow contestant Whitcomb during the duo’s appearance on season four of The Voice. “We were blown away when we heard Amy sing,” Lewis says. “Ryan and I quickly agreed she would be perfect in the role of Florence, the jealous lover.” Whitcomb has been singled out by more than one critic; Theater Mania gushed, “the irrepressibly fierce Whitcomb sings like the genetic offspring of Pat Benatar and a valkyrie” and Talking Broadway said, “Whitcomb gives you something you can’t get at The Phantom of The Opera or anywhere else…” Theater Scene enthused, “Emitting old-time villainous Hollywood glamor, Amy Whitcomb robustly scores as the meddlesome Florence.”

“We are pleased to see Deep Love reaching more and more people every year,” adds Hayes. This year will be our biggest season yet.”

Joining Lewis and Whitcomb on stage are Garrett Sherwood and actress Alexandra Lovin, who have also received their share of acclamations. Theater Scene said that Sherwood has, “a raspy voice and a rock star charisma in the vein of Steven Tyler” and that he “is very fitting as Friedrich.” Lovin, a trained opera singer, is returning to the cast of Deep Love for the first time since 2010.

Deep Love is intended for all ages. Audience members are encouraged to wear their best funeral attire to the show.
