With disparate styles that range from ‘60’s Europop to ‘70’s punk to ‘80’s electronica to gospel, soul, and funk to musical theatre and witha nod to James Brown, this 2008 Tony Award winner is a play within a rock concert. The show follows an emerging African American musician from his garage-band days in Los Angeles to coffeehouses in Amsterdam.

New Work: Shana Kaplow + Michael Sweere
Shana Kaplow’s artwork includes a 50-foot long sequence of evocative ink paintings that explore the subject of a chair. Working both representationally and abstractly, she imbues the paintings with complex questions about interconnection, separation, culture, and even globalism.
