Video: Karen O’s "Stop The Virgens" Documentary

The Creators Project released a 30 plus minute documentary on the making of Karen O’s rock opera “Stop The Virgins.” Featuring footage and interviews with many of the players involved from performers to set designers and musicians, the footage offers fans an unprecedented look at the creative process behind putting the show together. 

“Seven years ago, Karen O started working on an album that never saw the light of day. She came to realize the material “was much broader than… a rock record.” Heavily inspired by cinema and theater during her writing process, Karen says she always envisioned the record as more than just music but never had the right outlet for it. Finally, the manifestation of this introspective exercise comes in the form of a psycho-opera of sorts, entitled Stop the Virgens, which debuted last October in DUMBO at St. Ann’s Warehouse in conjunction with our Creators Project: New York event.”
