THE RIME is Gabriel's performance of the epic poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" where all ten characters come to life in vivid detail. With only a crate, sail and tuxedo, Gabriel paints the elaborate tapestry of a wedding, the sea, the arctic expanse, spirits, monsters, angels and the albatross - creating a tale of redemption.
