Every Brilliant Thing

by Duncan Macmillan with Johnny Donahoe

A Black Curtain Reader's Theatre

SEPTEMBER 22 & 23, 2018 @ 7:30 PM

Every Brilliant Thing

A List For Life

1. Ice cream 2. Water fights 3. Things with stripes 4. Staying up past your bedtime to watch TV 5. Rollercoasters. These are just a few items on a list of things worth living for compiled by a young boy trying to ease his mother’s depression at the start of Duncan Macmillian’s charming and miraculous new play Every Brilliant Thing. Through adulthood, he learns the deep significance that the ever-expanding list has on his own life, as he goes to college, falls in love, and builds a home. Called “heart-wrenching and hilarious”, Every Brilliant Thing is a moving and compassionate tribute to the irrepressible resilience inside us all and a reminder to find delight in the every day. The play is also a testament to the power of storytelling as it enlists members of the audience to help tell its story in this immersive experience

Matt Andersen

Award-winning bluesman back by popular demand!

Nova Scotia-based singer-songwriter Matt Andersen will once again grace our stage with his giant soul-filled voice and powerful blues performance. Matt has built a formidable following the old-fashioned way – touring worldwide and letting his converted audiences spread his reputation through word of mouth. The accolades to Matt’s talent continue to pile up, including two European Blues Awards for Best Solo Acoustic Act, a JUNO nomination for Roots Album of the Year, and a Best Solo Performer Award at the Memphis Blues Challenge. In addition to headlining major festivals and clubs around the globe, he has shared the stage with Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Greg Allman, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Little Feat, Serena Ryder, and more. According to All Music, Matt’s “the kind of guy who can captivate a room with just an acoustic guitar and that big, comforting voice.”

Kettlehouse

Developmental Premiere of New Comedy

Meet Miles Kettlehouse. Her folks were happily married on June 4th, 1982 and happily divorced a day shy of their first wedding anniversary. The hitch? Miles’ Dad never moved out and neither did her Mom! For the past 34 years, they have been loathing each other under the same roof, refusing to talk, even refusing to be on the same AT&T Friends & Family plan. Miles’ life has been reduced to being the goodwill ambassador, UN peacekeeper and back-channel negotiator for her emotionally stunted parents, cramping both her home and love life. Written by award-winning playwright Robert Caisley, Kettlehouse is an outrageous comedy of errors about love, dysfunctional families, nosebleeds and the art of Feng Shui.

NOVEMBER 2, 2018 @ 7:30 PM

Everybody Needs a Little Sunshine

Everybody Needs a Little Sunshine

The exceptional talents of critically-acclaimed teen music prodigy, EMISUNSHINE has captured the nation’s attention. The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has been hailed by outlets such as No Depression, Billboard and Rolling Stone: “Sounds like the spunky, intense little sister to artists Iris DeMent, Natalie Maines, Nanci Griffith and Janis Joplin.”

EmiSunshine has already graced some of the most-prestigious stages–from the “Today Show,” to the Grand Ole Opry (over a dozen times) and most recently, “Little Big Shots starring Steve Harvey” last April. Additionally, EmiSunshine stars in and performs three songs in her latest film appearance on “The King,” alongside such celebrities as Roseanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Ethan Hawke, Alec Baldwin and more. The film featured at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and premiered at Cannes Film Festival, where Emi performed.

A well-crafted storyteller, Emi’s music has been described as an “old-timey,” unique blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, Bluegrass, Gospel, and Country, with a sprinkle of Blues.

Trying

by Joanna McClelland Glass

A Black Curtain Reader's Theatre

NOVEMBER 10 & 11, 2018 @ 7:30 PM

The Shape of Things

He made history... but can he make a friend?

How do you measure justice? How do you weigh a life? How do you define a friendship? Joanna McClelland Glass’ play Trying is inspired by her real-life experience as personal secretary to the brilliant and irascible Judge Francis Biddle, U.S. Attorney General during WWII and Chief Justice for the Nuremberg Trials. At 81-years of age, Biddle is arrogant and rigid but also painfully aware of his failing health and fearful he may not be able to complete his autobiography in time to tell his side of history. Enter Sara Schorr, an inexperienced, 25-year old writer hired by Biddle’s wife to help put his affairs in order. While at first she seems to be no match for this scion of American aristocracy, her persistent head-butting leads these unlikely partners to discover each other’s fears, regrets, hopes and humor. This “exquisitely literate, moving, and compelling” story illustrates how two strangers, at two dramatically different places in their lives, can unexpectedly and forever influence each other.

Ripcord

A Dangerously Funny Battle of Wills

Battle lines are being drawn at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. The prize? A sunny room on an upper floor that is prime real estate. Cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, a fiercely cheerful new roomie who wants the bed next to the window. Not willing to give up her spot, Abby decides she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. To settle the score, a seemingly harmless bet between the women that not only reveals the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but quickly escalates into an outrageous game of one-upmanship. Called “an expertly engineered comedy”, this new play is The Odd Couple meets The Golden Girls in this over-the-top story from David Lindsay-Abaire (Pulitzer Prize winning author of Rabbit Hole, Fuddy Meers, and Good People).

APRIL 25, 2019 @ 7:30 PM

The Sweet Remains

Trio of Honey-Coated Harmonies

The Sweet Remains is nationally touring, acoustic folk-rock trio, headed by three gifted and charismatic singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and three-part harmonies that define the band's sound. Driven by strong lyrical and melodic writing, their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk-rockers like Wilco, Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne, and John Mayer. However, it is their lush harmonies that distinguish The Sweet Remains from the throngs of guitar-toting troubadors and harken back to super-groups of the 60’s and 70’s like Crosby, Stills and Nash, the Eagles, and Simon & Garfunkel. Founded by musicians Rich Price, Greg Naughton, and Brian Chartrand, The Sweet Remains has been winning the praise of audiences and critics across the country with four studio albums and their new original film called The Independents that features the story and music of the band.

The Christians

MAY 4 & 5, 2019 @ 7:30 PM

The Christians

A Commentary on Compassion

Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was nothing more than a modest storefront. Now he presides over a congregation of thousands, with classrooms for Sunday School, a coffee shop in the lobby, and a parking lot so big you could get lost in it. Today should be a day of celebration. However when the beloved minister steps up to the pulpit to share a new belief, his stunning revelation leaves the entire church community rocked to its core. Praised by the National Catholic Reporter for being “powerful, riveting, and handling a complex and intellectual debate in a relatable way”, Lucan Hnath’s The Christians is a big-little play about faith in America—and the trouble with changing your mind.

I Hate Hamlet

MAY 30 - 31 & JUNE 1 - 2 and 7 - 9, 2019
(PREVIEW - May 30)

I Hate Hamlet

Am I dead - or just increadibly drunk?
To Be or Not To Be?

Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. There are, however, a couple of glitches in paradise. Andrew’s series has been canceled; his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity with unyielding conviction; and he has no desire to play Hamlet. When Andrew's agent visits him, she remenisces about her brief romance with John Barrymore many years ago, in Andrew’s apartment. This prompts a seance to summon his ghost. From the moment Barrymore returns, dressed in high Shakespearean garb, Andrew’s life is no longer his own. Barrymore, fortified by champagne and ego, presses Andrew to accept the part and fulfill his actor’s destiny. The action becomes more hilarious with the entrance of Andrew’s deal-making friend from LA, spouting the laid-back hype of the Coast and offering Andrew a fabulous new TV deal worth millions of dollars. The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, Barrymore, his sword, and the fact that he fails as Hamlet in Central Park. “...unapologetically silly and at times hilarious... affectionately amusing about the theatre...” -The New York Times “... fast-mouthed and funny...It has the old-fashioned Broadway virtues of brightness without pretensions and sentimentality without morals.” -The Village Voice
