Chan Poling chats about cabaret version of “Glensheen” musical at Lutsen

“Glensheen” is an award-winning 2015 musical based on the infamous Congdon murders at the Glensheen estate in Duluth, MN, with music and lyrics penned by Chan Poling, a Minneapolis musician famous for being the frontman of 1980s alternative band The Suburbs as well as, part of the jazz trio The New Standards.

Coming up this weekend, the musical takes a new form in a cabaret-style show featuring the songs from the show and much of the original cast. Poling chats with Will Moore about what to expect from the show, what will be new or different, and some background behind Glensheen’s rise to the stage.
