A Grand Night for Singing
 
A Rodgers and Hammerstein Musical Revue
 
Venue: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
Producer: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
City: Nutley

Additional Notes:
Taste and imagination, the two key ingredients for a first-rate revue, abound in this fresh take on the Rodgers & Hammerstein canon conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie. Over three decades after the duo's final collaboration, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, took the Great White Way by storm, it was in fact this new R&H musical that opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices as well as earning two Tony nominations, including Best Musical. Here at R&H, our founding fathers probably never imagined 'Shall We Dance?' as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer, nor did they suspect that one day a lovelorn young lad might pose the musical question, 'How do you solve a problem like Maria?' But that's precisely the kind of invention lavished upon this new revue, with innovative musical arrangements including a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair,' a swingin' 'Honeybun' worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy 'Kansas City' which leaves no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.

Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
In this play Mary Speaks, the life of biblical figure Mary, the mother of Jesus, is used to explore parallels in the history of black mothers and their sons from slavery to present day. Writer and performer, Angela Polite finds in Mother Mary a prototype for the struggle of black mothers to raise and keep their sons alive in a society where his very existence is seen as a threat and can quickly lead to him becoming a crucified black body. Through monologues, song, spoken word and dance, we follow mother and son from the auction block, Jim Crow South, through the Great Migration, segregation to present day. Through this journey, Mary lives with the weight of being the mother of a black man-child and the gut-wrenching realization that she could lose him.Written and Performed by Angela Polite Christopher Burris – Director Barbara Matovu – Assistant Director Jeff Bolding – Musical Director Production Assistant – Ryan ChristianLightning Designer – Steven ThompsonStage Manager - Marie Cisco *An Equity Approved Showcase

NOTHING LIKE A DAME.... EDNA A Night of Comedy with Dame Edna's Honorary Understudy Scott Mason
 
It is Valentines Day Possums and Ive got a little present for you to unwrap!
 
Venue: ( Independence Seaport Museum)
Independence Seaport Museum
Producer: ( Playhouse Productions)
Playhouse Productions
City: Philadelphia

Additional Notes:
Dame Edna's Honorary Understudy, award winning impersonator Scott Mason, bedazzles the stage with what the Dame herself calls a monologue interrupted by total strangers. Join us for a night of pure comedy as Dame Edna brings to witty light what she fondly calls American puritanism at its worst. With sincerity, sarcasm, and a smile, the self anointed Gigastar skewers everything from celebrities to cruise ships to warning labels (and the first few rows of the audience might be targets as well) but without an ounce of profanity for a change of pace- this is, after all, a classy Dame from Down Under. Dame Edna also shares personal stories such as the fate of her deceased husband, Norm Everage, who suffered from a rare disease- the Prostate Murmur. Why can't comedy also be informative, Possums? the Dame may have mentioned on an obscure late night talk-show. It's all for fun and fun for all, and as always our proceeds go to a good cause. Has there ever been a bad cause?... well.. perhaps, quips the Dame but not this one, Possums.
