Rally for Alli

Friday, March 24 from 7 to 10 pm
Stephen Talkhouse, 161 Main St, Amagansett

On August 26, 2016 the Bennett family of East Hampton was dealt with a second blow when their oldest daugher, 41 year old Allison Duchemin, was their second daughter in less than 5 years to be diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Allison’s sister, Cheryl, was diagnosed with the same form of Breast Cancer slightly over 4 years prior; her offical diagnosis is HER – 2 Positive Invasive Ductal Carcinoma.

Treatment consisted of traveling to Sloan Kettering Cancer Center once a week for the past 5 months for chemotheraphy treatment, and will continue to go every three weeks for the next year for Estrogen Therapy. Her first surgery was on February 20, 2017 at Memorial Sloan Kettering NYC where she had to undergo a double mastectomy with the start of reconstruction. Allison is a hardworking individual for the Town of East Hampton and will now be out of work for 4 weeks. Following surgery, she will have 5-6 weeks of radation 5 days a week in Commack. Finally, in 4-5 months she will have Reconstruction surgery requiring a 5 night hospital stay and 6 weeks out of work.

One could only imagine the travel expenses and finanical burden this has on a family; this has been a long road for Allison, her boyfriend Walter, and her three children (Sean, Riley, and Taylor) and it is not over yet. Anything our wonderful community could do to lighten the burden would be more than appreciated.

Come join us March 24, 2017 from 7pm-10pm at the Stephen Talkhouse to support Allison and her family. Stop on by for a great night of live music from Little Head Thinks and The Dog Watchers, raffles, food and much more!

Luft Gangster

Friday, March 31, 2017–Sunday, April 16, 2017
Black Box Theater

The story of U.S. Army Air Corps veteran and prisoner of war Sgt. Louis Fowler is told in Lowell Byers’ gripping and visceral drama, Luft Gangster.

After bailing out of his crippled B24 bomber under heavy fire from German forces, waist gunner Lou Fowler is captured by the Nazis. Incarcerated along with other Allied fliers in an inhumane Nazi prison camp, where POWs view new prisoners with suspicion as possible Nazi infiltrators, Lou has to heal his own battle injuries, as his captors treat him as just another ‘luft gangster’ – a term Joseph Goebbels created as propaganda to convince the German nation that all American flyers were criminals released from prison by the US government in order to fight in World War II.

As Lou endures the hellish and unsanitary conditions of prison camp life, subsisting on what could barely be described as food and enduring unspeakable cruelty, surviving to escape becomes his only goal. In a time and place where men on both sides of the war were stripped of all things civilized and reduced to the bare essentials of life, where a single slip of the tongue could mean death, Lou will have to rely on his faith to make it out alive.

The Strangest

Sunday, March 12 through Saturday, April 1
Most performances at 7:30 pm but check schedule
The Fourth Street Theatre – 83 East Fourth St. (between Bowery and Second Ave)

Note: The first preview was originally scheduled for Saturday March 11 but has since changed to Sunday March 12

Experience French Algiers on the brink of revolution, and witness what happens when three Arab brothers vie for the love of the same woman. Written by noted playwright, Betty Shamieh ( The Black Eyed, Roar, Fit for a Queen) and directed by May Adrales ( Vietgone, Luce).

The Strangest
is a truly singular theatrical event that invites audiences to experience the centuries old live performance tradition of Arabic storytelling that predates Shakespeare, and to enter into a world that most American theater goers might otherwise never be able to access.

The Strangest invites audiences into an immersive theatrical experience in which they enter a traditional Arab storytelling café, where for centuries masters of the oral tradition wove tales of intrigue. The Strangest is an absurdist murder mystery loosely inspired by the unnamed Arab killed in Albert Camus’ classic novel, The Stranger. Experience French Algiers on the brink of revolution, and witness three Arab brothers vie for the love of the same woman. Their bitter rivalry ends only when one is gunned down by a French stranger. Written by Betty Shamieh ( The Black Eyed, Roar, Fit for a Queen) and directed by May Adrales ( Vietgone, Luce).

French Algeria was a hybrid of Eastern and Western cultures that fascinated some of the most important writers and artists of the twentieth century, including Albert Camus, Jean Genet, and Jean-Paul Sartre. In 1848, Algeria was made part of France. It was the first colonization of an Arab country since the Crusades, and hundreds of thousands of Europeans immigrated and settled there. The Algerian War for Independence began over a hundred years later in 1954. The Strangest evokes that cultural hybridity, mixing oral Arab storytelling techniques with Western theatrical practices of multi-character scenes in a way that illuminates the strengths and similarities of both those performance traditions.

In 2011, writer Betty Shamieh traveled to Aleppo, Syria to conduct research on storytelling cafes for The Strangest. Syria was chosen rather than Algeria not only because Shamieh understood the Levantine dialect, but also because it ironically was deemed safer and less likely to be touched by the events of the Arab Spring. She and her team arrived in Aleppo during the week when the first anti-government protests began. Not only were they able to document these legendary storytelling sites that are no longer standing, or have ceased to be cultural centers for the first time in centuries, but also a society on the verge of civil war and self-destruction.

The Strangest is a truly singular theatrical event that invites audiences to experience the centuries old live performance tradition of Arabic storytelling that predates Shakespeare, and to enter into a world that most New Yorkers might otherwise never be able to access, particularly at this time where it is much more difficult for Arab artists to perform in America.

“As a child of Arab immigrants who became an American playwright, I was always fascinated by the idea of Middle Eastern storytelling cafes, where a person could grab a cup of joe and listen to the live performances of the best storytellers in that community retelling fables and myths from The Arabian Nights. It never occurred to me that the cafes were segregated all-male spaces. I wanted to infiltrate these storytelling cafes. I had been commissioned to write a stage adaptation of The Stranger andupon revisiting Camus’ text; I realized adapting a cerebral novel wasn’t my thing. I also realized I had missed that the novel is about more than a weird narrator who shot a man he didn’t know without feeling remorse, or a representation of an abstract concept called Existentialism. At its core, it is about a colonist killing a native in a deeply racist environment, where desensitization of self and dehumanization of others are necessary ingredients for survival. Thus, the concept for The Strangest was born. I wanted to tell the other side of the story, evoking the wildness of the world that was French Algiers” said playwright, Betty Shamieh.

The company of The Strangest is Jacqueline Antaramian (as Umm; Homeland, Madam Secretary), Andrew Guilarte (as Nemo; The Invisible Hand (Kansas City Repertory Theatre)), Juri Henly-Cohn (as Nader; Inventing Avi), Roxanna Hope Radja (as Layali; Frost/Nixon; After the Fall (Broadway)), Louis Sallan (as Nounu; Blue Bloods), Alok Tewari (as Abu; The Band’s Visit (Atlantic Theater) ; Awake and Sing! (Public/NAATCO), and Brendan Titley (as Gun; MacBeth (Broadway); As You Like It (Public Theater)).

Under the direction of May Adrales, The Strangest will feature Scenic Design by Daniel Zimmerman, Costume Design by Becky Bodurtha, Lighting Design by Aaron Porter, and New Music & Sound Design by Nathan A. Roberts & Charles Coes. The production manager is Jay Sterkel and the stage manager is Megan Sprowls.

This production of The Strangest is produced by Semitic Root with creative producer Allison Bressi, Executive ProducerParadox Productions NY, LLC, and general managed by Kaitlin Boland.

Additionally, MasterVoices gives complimentary tickets to hundreds of high school students and seniors from New York each season, and invites young soloists to perform at top venues as a part of the Faith Geier Artist Initiative.

In August 2015, the company transitioned from The Collegiate Chorale to MasterVoices, a name that better represents the current mission of the company as a performing arts organization that celebrates storytelling through the masterful voices of its chorus and world-class soloists, and the creative voices of composers, librettists, designers and directors.
