Thanks for the Joy-Ruthie Foster & Eric Bibb - Landmark on Main Street
February 08, 2014 - Port Washington

Longtime friends and collaborators, Ruthie Foster and Eric Bibb, join forces to celebrate a night of joyful roots music. Performing on their own and together, the tour title, Thanks for the Joy, is drawn from a song written by Eric and performed by Ruthie. Grammy nominee Ruthie Foster is one of the roots music world's brightest stars. Her latest CD Let It Burn debuted earlier this year on three Billboard charts (Blues, Heatseekers, Top 200) with the Los Angeles Times proclaiming, "to call Ruthie Foster a blues singer is to miss a big chunk of her allure as a vocal stylist, one who draws from a range of influences on her deep, soulful Let It Burn." On the album, Ruthie adds inventive interpretations to songs by Adele, Black Keys, Los Lobos, Johnny Cash and more. Ruthie was also among the most-honored artists at the 2012 Blues Music Awards with 3 nominations including 2 wins: for B.B. King Entertainer of the Year, Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year (winner) and DVD of the Year for her Live At Antone's DVD (winner). She's appeared at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Monterey and North Sea Jazz Festivals and many more of the world's most prestigious events as well as being featured on national programs such as Austin City Limits, All Things Considered and NPR's Weekend Edition. Ruthie Foster is a powerful performer who always makes an emotional impact on her audiences. Eric Bibb is a Grammy nominee and 2012 Blues Music Award winner. As the godson of Paul Robeson, the nephew of John Lewis, and the son of Leon Bibb, Eric Bibb was raised in an environment where music was crucial. He brings that same intensity, along with what the Dayton Daily News calls "grace, elegance and gentleness," to the concert stage as a mature and increasingly popular performer. Touring prestigious venues and festivals round the world, a performance by Eric Bibb is an enriching experience, both musically and spiritually. His music, like his personality, is intimate, assured, and passionate.

The Stinky Cheese Man & Other Fairly Stupid Tales - Madison Theatre at Molloy College
February 09, 2014 - Rockville Centre

Jack has a problem. He�s successfully grown an enormous beanstalk, scaled to the top, and stolen a golden harp and gold-laying goose from the sleeping giant. However, the giant has now awoken and Jack has scurried back down the beanstalk in the hopes of chopping it down before the giant can catch him. Jack could possibly even make a clean escape if only the Little Red Hen would quit harping on and on about all the lazy animals who refuse to help her with her wheat. As the hungry giant catches up to Jack, Jack is forced to find ways to divert the giant�s attention in order to avoid becoming an afternoon snack. When he is unable to find a suitable hiding place, Jack convinces the giant that a good story or two would be the perfect way to begin a meal. And so it happens that Jack begins telling his own versions of some very familiar stories. With each tale the giant becomes more and more dissatisfied, and Jack becomes more and more determined to make it up to the giant by spinning a new yarn. The giant (and the audience as well) is treated to some new treatments of some old favorites, such as a tortoise racing a hair-growing hare, Cinderumplestiltskin, Little Red Running Shorts, and a couple of princesses who kiss frogs and sleep on peas. Jack must not only tell tales as fast as he can for as long as he can to avoid being eaten, but he must also overcome the disturbances caused by that pesky, bread-obsessed Red Hen and a very smelly hero made of cheese. The Stinky Cheese Man & Other Fairly Stupid Tales, both as a book and stage play, shares with its audience the joys of making stories your own and creating new possibilities for the familiar.

Improvised Shakespeare - Madison Theatre at Molloy College
February 14, 2014 - Rockville Centre

Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written), The Improvised Shakespeare Company creates a fully improvised play in Elizabethan style. Each of the players has brushed up on his “thee’s” and “thou’s” to bring you an evening of off-the-cuff comedy using the language and themes of William Shakespeare. Any hour could be filled with power struggles, star-crossed lovers, sprites, kings, queens, princesses, sword-play, rhyming couplets, asides, insults, persons in disguise and all that we’ve come to expect from the pen of the Great Bard. The night could reveal a tragedy, comedy, or history. Nothing is planned-out, rehearsed, or written. Each play is completely improvised, so each play is entirely new!
