Chekhov Celebration: Ivanov
Tom Stoppard's new translation directed by Andrew S. Paul in its US Premiere. A sort of comic Hamlet, Ivanov is overcome with inertia and self-disgust. His wife is dying and he feels nothing. He is drowning in debt and despair, and he does nothing. Is it him? Is it Russia? Ivanov was the twenty-seven-year-old Chekhov's shot at dispatching the 'superfluous man' of Russian literature, and in surrounding him with a brilliantly drawn set of provincial types he created some of the finest comedy he had ever written.

The Golden Dragon
A beautiful giant cricket is exploited by an ant, stewardesses 30,000 feet in the air speak to boat people in the Atlantic, a tooth lands in a bowl of soup, and a dead boy is carried thousands of miles home on a river. Wielding a dreamlike kaleidoscope, making and remaking connections that span the globe, playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig tells The Golden Dragon's tragicomic tale of globalization. It's set in your local takeout, wherever it and whomever you might be. Karla Boos directs.

American Idols
For the 2012 election season, John Moran introduces “American Idols,” a new installation of busts of all 43 U.S. presidents. This marks the first occasion that all the busts will appear together, in one location. Moran constructs his strange busts and their quirky, somewhat childlike, and absurd appearances by meshing sculpted glass heads with an array of other materials. Their clothing is laden with images and words strewn together in a seemingly haphazard manner, which begins to create an obscure narrative of their lives.

Flood City Music Festival
Featured performers include Dr. John, the Del McCoury Band, the Smithereens, and festival favorites Black Coffee, Eilen Jewell, Los Straitjackets, and Tab Benoit.
08/03/2012


Carlisle Floyd's Susannah
Set in New Hope Valley, Tennessee, the story centers on an attractive but innocent girl of 19, who is falsely accused of "loose" behavior. Floyd's 1955 opera is a direct response to the anti-communist witch hunts, yet is also informed by his experiences growing up in rural South Carolina as the son of a Methodist preacher, and many of its themes — hypocrisy, mistrust and misunderstanding — remain all too relevant today. Patrick Brannan directs. Walter Morales conducts the Undercroft Orchestra.

First Fridays: The Bobs
Manhattan Transfer meets Monty Python…Robin Williams meets Bobby McFerrin…J.S. Bach meets Jimi Hendrix: Grammy-nominated vocal acrobats (and certifiable nutjobs), that's The Bobs. This original “band without instruments” has been skewering the classics, breaking all the rules of vocal music for over 25 years, playing everywhere from Lincoln Center to Berlin's Passionkirche.
