Primal Foundation Presents:
October 17, 2014

Arthur Janov has teamed up with legendary composer David Foster to present Primal Scream: The Musical, which has been adapted from Dr. Janov's best-selling book and is based on his experiences working in primal therapy with patients. After coming across several of Janov's poems 25 years ago, Foster put music to them and the rest is history.

The primal scream journey is a powerful and emotional musical comedy that centers around Jim and Julie, two lost souls who cannot love due to repressed childhood feelings as they delve into their troubled pasts to retrieve their lost and buried feelings that have led to a variety of neurotic behaviors. Featuring over thirty phenomenal song and dance numbers with Janov's lyrics and Foster's explosively entertaining music, viewers will enjoy a unique and exquisite musical experience layered with a deep understanding of the human psyche.
