    Or take the audience in the opposite direction for contrast and use period music. While I can't suggest any specific tunes, consider traditional colonial American tunes and/or (protestant) hymns (on piano or other traditional instruments). Or consider English folk music or Scottish folk music.

    (You can probably find the music at Borders and even listen to samples of the songs off the CDs before buying anything.)

    I was just thinking of the often simple, pleasant melodies on fiddle/flute/pipe compared to the accusations, deceit, and death of the story.

    I try to stick to Jazz for intermission music. But that's just me.

    when we did the show we never put any thought into this until opening night right before the house opened, so we ended up with blue man group. it worked allright but wasnt the greatest
