Playing with Light and Shadow

[MainStage]
 
7pm August 26
 
By Ted Jones
 
“Playing with Light and Shadow” is Ted Jones’ new original one-man musical show — a personal recollection in story and song with a unique twist: Jones plays a bright blue electric harp. Fusing Classical, Jazz and Blues music with musical theatre, Jones illuminates his own life of light and shadow through a lifetime of play: as a child, as an actor, as a harpist.

“A wonderful singer, a seasoned actor and has a strong, relaxed harp-playing style”
– DEBORAH HENSON-CONANT
Grammy-nominated electric harp virtuoso
 
 
“Beautiful, moving harp playing”
– ROBBIN GORDON-CARTIER
Concert harpist and motivational speaker

[MainStage]
 
8pm November 3,4,10,11
7pm November 8,9
2pm November 11
 
Adapted by Wade Bradford
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Greenlee and Wade Bradford
 
“Ah, what fools these mortals be!” Whimsically adapted from Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy by Wade Bradford and Rachel Greenlee, this musical features the usual magical forest and spellbound lovers, but also an upstart Puck who decides to liven things up by modernizing the dialogue and adding song and dance numbers. It’s all fun and games until William Shakespeare, fresh from spinning in his grave, leaps onto the stage, demanding to know what on earth is going on! Although this musical version may be a bit more madcap than what the Bard had intended, this show still captures the wonder and the romance of the original play.

Spread the word! Funny, outrageous, emotionally affecting and occasionally angry … Eve Ensler’s series of monologues about women and performed by women is back for the sixteenth year! This Obie Award-winning whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices, including a six-year-old girl, a septuagenarian New Yorker, a vagina workshop participant, a woman who witnesses the birth of her granddaughter, a Bosnian survivor of rape, and a feminist happy to have found a man who “liked to look at it.”

By Lorraine Hansberry
 
Lorraine Hansberry’s landmark drama follows three generations of the Younger family, each yearning for a better life far from their crowded, dilapidated apartment on Chicago’s south side. An unexpected financial windfall offers them the opportunity to rise from poverty and better their lives, but the family struggles with conflicting ideas about how to use the money. Unflinching in its vision of what happens to people whose dreams are constantly deferred, this enduring portrait of the African-American experience still resonates today with its themes of identity, justice and moral responsibility.

By Becky Modes
 
Ryan Bowie brings to life nearly forty wildly diverse characters in this devastatingly funny one-man show following a day in the life of Sam Peliczowski, an out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one restaurant. Coercion, threats, bribes, histrionics — a cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing in their zeal to land a prime reservation, or the right table. Amid the barrage, Sam’s got his own needs to contend with — his recently widowed dad wants him home for Christmas, and he’s up for a choice part at Lincoln Center. While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and egomaniacal bosses, can he manage to look out for himself?

Named “the most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation” by The Vietnam Vets Association, this powerful drama follows the true stories of six courageous women sent to Vietnam — five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops — and their struggles to make sense of a war that irrevocably changed them and a nation that shunned them. Enhanced with video projections and other multimedia, the play explores the often overlooked contributions of women in service.

The year is 1962. Marilyn Monroe has just died and must audition for heaven. But her judges are her thirteen aborted babies. Will she get into heaven?

New York salutes Hollywood in this affectionate spoof of the Busby Berkeley-Harry Warren and Al Dubin-Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler-style film musical of the ’30s. It’s big-time New York into which sweet little Ruby from faraway Hometown, USA, has come to make it big on Broadway. Who should she chance to meet but another boy from Hometown, USA: Dick, a sailor, who also has ambitions as a songwriter. Ruby begins in the chorus and, by the end of the day, in true Hollywood fashion, Dick saves her doomed Broadway show with a smash tune, as Ruby becomes a star on the deck of a battleship which just happens to be passing by. A pastiche of 1930s musicals, the show’s atmosphere and songs reflect a good-natured send-up of the real thing.

The high-spirited rivalry between cowboys and farmers in Western Indian territory, just after the turn of the century, provides the colorful background for love between handsome cowboy Curly and winsome farm girl Laurey. Although the road to true love never runs smoothly, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. Blending song, ballet and “hoe-down” stepping, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s initial collaboration features among its musical highlights “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say We’re in Love,” “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top,” “Many a New Day,” “Kansas City” and the triumphant song of the brand new state, “Oklahoma!”
