Two of America's greatest songwriters share the stage for an evening of stories and songs. Each with ties of the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues. Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of what were then called protest songs, but he also wrote songs about love, humorous, and for kids. Many became off-covered standards, including 'Bottle of Wine,' 'Ramblin' Boy' and 'The Last Thing on My Mind.' At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with the then-provocative 'Society's Child,' a taboo-busting meditation about an interracial romance. She re-emerged a decade later in the mid-70s with her biggest hit the reflective 'At Seventeen,' which won a GRAMMY®. She remains an unflinching topical commentator.

A Broadway hit first produced on the West End under the title Gaslight and filmed twice, Angel Street tells the story of the Manninghams who live on Angel Street in 19th Century London. As the curtain rises, all appears the essence of Victorian tranquility. It is soon apparent however, that Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness which masks more sinister motives. While he is out, Mrs. Manningham has an unexpected caller: amiable, paternal Inspector Rough from Scotland Yard.

In 1965, on the picket lines of Cesar Chavez's Delano Grape Strike, Luis Valdez founded El Teatro Campesino when he and a group of workers began producing short skits or "actos" to dramatize the conditions of migrant farmworkers, with the workers themselves playing the parts.

To celebrate the company's 50th Anniversary, Public Forum presents two of those original actos as part of its celebrated Drama Club series with a cast of major Latino talents and thinkers, including Valdez and his son Lakin Valdez, artist-in-residence with Teatro Campesino, as well as journalist and activist Maria Hinojosa and spoken word artist and playwright Lemon Andersen.

The results are messy, outrageous, and the evening devolves into debauchery.

The title Dutchman is an allusion to The Dutch East India Company, the most renowned slave ship company of the 17th century, whose flagship for the voyages between West Africa and America, tradition says, was named Flying Dutchman. The literary legend is The Flying Dutchman in which the central character is ever in pursuit of prey that can never be caught. This production will include the music of Wagner's The Flying Dutchman.

As the play unspools, she goads him, with liberal righteousness, into releasing the anger that, as a black man, he must surely be harboring.

A native of Berlin, Fuzjko is the daughter of Swedish architect and painter father, and Japanese pianist mother. By age ten, Fuzjko began playing piano with her mother, and at that time Fuzjko started working with Leonid Kreutzer, a highly influential piano teacher. Leonid predicted Fuzjko's success when he stated she will be "an internationally-acclaimed pianist even at such an early stage." Fuzjko proved his statement to be true as she continued playing piano and attended Tokyo University of the Arts to further her skills and passion.
Fuzjko graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts and received several awards from Radio and TV in Japan. Then, she passed first on the list for Berlin University of the Arts and worked with Paul Badura-Skoda in Vienna. Fuzjko continued performing piano and was recognized from several international well-known classical authorities such as Bruno Maderna, Leonard-Bernstein, Cherkausky, and N. Magaloff. Fuzjko's world of piano playing came to a sudden stop when she accidentally lost audibility. In 1999, a recital and a program of her document in Japan caused repercussions, as she released her first debut CD "Miraculous La campanella." There were over two million copies of exceptional sales in the classic field, and Fuzjko received the Japan Gold Disc Award and Album of the Year Award for four times, a feat that has never been achieved by any other artist. Recently in 2014, she performed at 11 venues in 9 counties in Europe during September and November and received a standing ovation and won great popularity.
Fuzjko has performed numerous solo recitals all over the world, invited by many music festivals, and collaborated with international orchestra, such as Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and many others. As one of her fellow musicians, Mischa Maisky credited her by saying, "I deeply appreciate her artistry." It is true that many artists whom have collaborated with her feel the same.

Award-winning composer Dave Malloy presents Ghost Quartet, a new song cycle about love, death, and whiskey. A camera breaks and four friends drink in four interwoven narratives spanning seven centuries: a warped fairy tale about two sisters, a treehouse astronomer and a lazy evil bear; a retelling of Edgar Allen Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher; a purgatorial intermezzo about Scheherazade and the ghost of Thelonious Monk; and a contemporary fable about a subway murder. Throughout these four stories, two women cross paths, sometimes as strangers, sometimes as sisters, sometimes as lovers, sometimes as mother and daughter. Ghost Quartet is a vibrant theatrical presentation of the ensemble's debut album, also called Ghost Quartet.
Blurring the line between theater and contemporary music performance, Ghost Quartet will be staged in the round in an intimate setting within The McKittrick Hotel, with the musicians seated amongst the audience.

His twin fixations collide when he tracks down Anna, a reclusive former actress-turned-barfly; gripped by the notion that she might be his actual birth-mother, he first stalks her from a distance, then lures her into a noirish production of Hamlet playing the role of the queen, his mother.

The company has conducted interviews over the past two years with young adults in Donetsk, who initially told of their dreams for a new life, but now describe either the rigors of refugee life in communities they have fled to or the hardships of life in the city if they have remained. The playscript combines these interviews with poetry and monologues by Serhiy Zhadan, the most popular writer of the post-independence generation in Ukraine.

James Cotton (called Cotton by his friends) was born on the first day of July,1935, in Tunica, Mississippi. He was the youngest of eight brothers and sisters who grew up in the cotton fields working beside their mother, Hattie, and their father, Mose. On Sundays Mose was the preacher in the area's Baptist church. Cotton's earliest memories include his mother playing chicken and train sounds on her harmonica and for a few years he thought those were the only two sounds the little instrument made. His Christmas present one year was a harmonica, it cost 15 cents, and it wasn't long before he mastered the chicken and the train. King Biscuit Time, a 15-minute radio show, began broadcasting live on KFFA, a station just across the Mississippi River in Helena, Arkansas. The star of the show was the harmonica legend, Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller). The young Cotton pressed his little ear to the old radio speaker. He recognized the harmonica sound AND discovered something – the harp did more! Realizing this, a profound change came over him, and since that moment, Cotton and his harp have been inseparable – the love affair had begun. Soon he was able to play Sonny Boy's theme song from the radio show and, as he grew so did his repertoire of Sonny Boy's other songs. Mississippi summers are ghastly, the heat is unrelenting. He was too young to actually work in the cotton fields, so little Cotton would bring water to those who did. When it was time for him to take a break from his job, he would sit in the shadow of the plantation foreman's horse and play his harp. His music became a source of joy for his first audience. James Cotton's star began to shine brightly at a very early age.

As a composer, Jesse Cook likes to take two styles of music that have never met before and blend them in new and interesting ways. He sees his style as a crossroads. "I want to be the Byzantium of our time." Go to see a Jesse Cook live show and you will also hear his five-piece band of talented multi-instrumentalists. "Our shows usually end with everybody out of their seat dancing," said Cook. "At the end of the night we want to end with a Rumba party." At any of Cooks concerts, there will be a mix of those who live close to the theater or concert hall and those who have traveled from a far. Cook used to always ask folks to applaud if they had traveled two hours or more to be there, and often it was more than half the audience. This kind of fan devotion is unusual considering that Cook has never recorded a big pop culture hit, but people have found the music despite the fact that there is no big push from a record company. "For the people who do connect with my music, the connection seems to be very profound," he concluded.
A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. It seems especially fitting that the first rock-opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent 60's, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus' meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge, and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
