Reader’s Theater: Two One-Act Plays

Reader‘s Theater
The state of the union forms a backdrop for the state of relationships in these reader's-theater premieres of two one-act plays. In “The President's Widow,” a psychodrama by Barney Leason, a stuffed-shirt Congressman tangos with the wife of a recently assassinated head of state. In “Driven to Distraction,” a comedy-drama by John Sullivan, a hapless son matches wit and reason with his doctrinaire mother on a road trip to a family wedding.

Presented reader’s-theater style (with actors performing onstage with scripts), both one-acts offer trenchant dialogue and insights to human interaction in our turbulent political climate. Join us for some thought-provoking wordplay in our intimate space.

Gottschalk and Cuba

Stacks Image 1384882
Celebrated pianist Antonio Iturrioz plays selections from his new album, Gottschalk and Cuba, just released by the Steinway & Sons record label. André Watts praised Iturrioz for capturing “the heart and soul” of the music of American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829-1869) while highlighting Cuba’s influence on him. He will also play a Chopin selection, including Chopin’s last major work for the piano, “Polonaise-Fantasie, Op. 61”,
And a couple of pieces for the left hand alone by Godowsky and Scriabin.

A celebration of his cd Gottschalk and Cuba »

He has just returned home from playing the U.K. Premiere of A Night in the Tropics, the first American symphony by Gottschalk and this piece is included in the program.

From the review: “Although realistically a piano should never be a substitute for a full orchestra, this arrangement exploited the capabilities of the instrument in such a way that it was totally convincing as an original piano work….performed with great sensitivity and power.”
Elaine Gould, President, Edinburgh Society of Musicians
