Nisenan Rock Opera ‘Something Inside Is Broken’ to Commence Three-State Tour on September 22


It’s not a comedy, but Jack Kohler, director and writer of this Nisenan-language rock opera about to tour the West promises moments of hilarity. Hilarity “and the right balance of truth and honesty, satire and optimism.”

Something Inside Is Broken’s central story line is the Nisenan people’s encounter with Johann Sutter in the pre-Gold Rush years. It’s told largely through the voices of female characters who bore the brunt of Sutter’s style of servitude, which included sexual exploitation.
