Conversations I Always Wanted to Have:
A Repertory Season of TwoPlays by Dael Orlandersmith
 

Forever by Dael Orlandersmith
Directed by Jordan Lichtenheld
is a semi-autobiographical work that traces the tempestuous relationship between a young girl, growing up in East Harlem, and her ex-dancer mother, a force of nature and a troubled mind who has been forced by circumstances beyond her control to give up so much in order to survive, and to keep her daughter safe.  

Until the Flood by Dael Orlandersmith
Directed by Renee Nixon
is a play comprised of interviews Ms. Orlandersmith conducted with residents of Ferguson, Missouri in the aftermath of the Michael Brown killing.  Its reach is broad, and the characters introduced range from the introspective to the fiercely confrontational.  Dates: Jan 29, Feb 4, 6, and 7 at 7 pm and Sunday, Jan 31 and Feb 14 at 2 pm. 

NOTE:  The two play repertory season will be performed live on Burning Coal’s stage each date, but only available to view through a livestreamed event. Dates:  January 28, 30, February 5, 11 and 13th at 7 pm and Sunday, February 7, 2021 at 2 pm. 

Tickets for both plays available by clicking here.

 

Peron March

Evita by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice
directed by Lillian White
Spring, 2021 (TBD)
Eva Peron is from the wrong side of the tracks.  But she ain’t stayin’ there long.  She’s on a one-way trajectory, and that one way is up.  If she has to kick a few people aside in the process, then so be it.  One of Webber’s best scores, this show contains “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina”, “A New Argentina”, “Another Suitcase, Another Hall” and “Buenos Aires”.  

NOTE:  Evita will be presented in a socially distanced outdoor venue TBA.

QUESTION:  What if I subscribe and the season or part of the season doesn’t happen?
ANSWER:  There are four ways you can respond in this circumstance. 
     1 – ask for a full refund for any shows not presented;
     2 – make your subscription a tax deductible contribution to the season;
     3 – roll a part or all of your subscription into the next season; or
     4 – if, for instance, two of the shows are not able to happen, you can change your 1 ticket to each of those 2 shows into 
     two tickets for each of the remaining two shows.

But we are all hoping to move forward with all of the season, as set forth above!
