Composed by Griffin Candey, and Knoxville librettist, Emily Anderson "Follow Suit" is a comic wedding-centric romp set in a hotel bar. A lone bartender (Jo) serves a lone man (Hixon) who seems to be separating himself from something. Through their flash-in-the-pan interaction, we draw out both the backstory of each of them — Jo still very much reeling from having cancelled her own wedding, and Hixon facing down his apprehension about long term relationships — and the foolish, selfish trends that surround the modern wedding. Who is a wedding for? What do we hold onto for tradition's sake, and what do we hold onto because others demand it? Full of both tongue-in-cheek energy and genuine self-reflection, Follow Suit stands true to one central theme: no one can tell you that there's right way to live your life.
