Venue: ( Barrow Street Theatre)

Producer: ( Barrow Street Theatre)
Barrow Street Theatre
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Geraldine Hughes's one-woman Belfast Blues is a tapestry of stories told from Hughes’s perspective as a little girl coming of age in the war-torn Belfast of the 1980s. Passionate, riveting, often humorous, these stories bear insightful witness to the many faces of “trying to live a normal life” amidst the violence born of the longstanding grudge between Catholics and Protestants. At thirteen, Hughes temporarily left “The Troubles” to star in a TV movie, Children in the Crossfire, only to return to a different kind of confusion and pain. Playwright and performer Hughes depicts over 20 characters in the multi-award-winning performance, which has played to rave reviews in Chicago, Los Angeles, Belfast, London, and New York. Belfast Blues was developed in collaboration with Kim Terrell and The Virtual Theatre Project and is being produced once again with Firefly Theater & Films (www.fireflyinc.com). Set and lighting design are by Jonathan Christman and sound design is by Jonathan Snipes. "One in a million" - British Theatre Guide "Exceptionally moving" - American Theatre "Maybe the best solo show I have ever seen" - Back Stage West "Outstanding" - LA Times "Awe-inspiring" - Talking Broadway "Takes your breath away" - Chicago Tribune "A bravura performance" - London Morning Star

Samuel Beckett's WAITING FOR GODOT
Thursday, September 04, 2014 through Sunday, September 21, 2014
 
Somewhat astonishingly, one of the most enigmatic plays of the 20th century -- Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" -- is now making total sense. In Yiddish.
 
Venue: ( Barrow Street Theatre)
Barrow Street Theatre
Producer: ( Barrow Street Theatre)
Barrow Street Theatre
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Direct from the Beckett Festival in Northern Ireland...New Yiddish Rep's groundbreaking production returns to New York as part of the 2014 Origin's 1st Irish Festival. 12 performances only! If this production doesn’t render the play in its true language of origin (as some have claimed), the production does, with haunting resonance, return “Godot” to the historical context of post WW II Europe in which Beckett was writing, in effect tracing it to its elemental moral and social roots. Beckett, a member of the French Resistance, wrote the play in French in ’48-’49. "Audacious... a revelation!" - The Forward “A production of zeal and intelligence! Hilarious and merciless! Essentially it’s perfect Beckett.” - The New Yorker Director Moshe Yassur, a veteran of both the Yiddish and modern theatre, notes that this production “is particularly Jewish, the characters are Holocaust survivors, they are facing the unimaginable, and they are waiting for answers that may not come. Yiddish, the language of laughter and tears, captures this sound, this feeling like no other language.” The authorized translation is by Shane Baker, a leading expert on Yiddish vaudeville and theatre who is an Episcopalian from Kansas City. Go figure. Joining the production’s distinguished multilingual and multi-ethnic New York cast as Pozzo is Allen Lewis Rickman (Coen Brothers’s “A Serious Man” and television’s "Boardwalk Empire"). Returning cast members include Rafael Goldwaser, who runs Théatre en l’Air in Strasbourg, France, as Lucky, and, as the hapless hobos Shane Baker, as Vladimir, and New Yiddish Rep’s artistic director David Mandelbaum, as Estragon. The 10-year-old Nicholas Jenkins, as the boy, also continues with the production. Presented in Yiddish with English supertitles.

The Harlem Repertory Theatre
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Langston Hughes, when asked to describe his play, wrote: “It’s a singing, shouting, wailing drama about the old conflict between blatant Evil and quiet Good, with the Devil driving a Cadillac. What kind of car have you got?” The HRT’s production of TAMBOURINES TO GLORY will be directed and choreographed by three-time AUDELCO winning director/choreographer, Keith Lee Grant. Andre Danke (Broadway: played keyboard for Memphis, Violet) has composed the jazz, blues and gospel score. A cast of fifteen talented and energetic singers/dancers/actors will perform TAMBOURINES TO GLORY in an intimate setting: playing scenes around the theatre space only inches away from the audience.
