Join us for an exclusive evening of celebration as we welcome Saturday Night Live alum Ana Gasteyer for a one night only performance! Born and raised in D.C., Ms. Gasteyer has appeared on Broadway in Wicked and The Threepenny Opera in addition to her six seasons on Saturday Night Live.
Before the performance, guests are invited to join us for a VIP cocktail reception and a three course seated dinner. During dinner we are delighted to honor Arena Stage Board Chair Beth Newburger Schwartz with the inaugural Beth Newburger Schwartz Award, which will be awarded annually to a female leader in the community. Beth was the obvious choice for this recognition, not only for her invaluable work at Arena but for the tireless work throughout her career to promote awareness of women's role throughout American history.
Part choral work, part theater piece, I Am Anne Hutchinson / I Am Harvey Milk is an emotional, musical celebration of two American icons.
I Am Harvey Milk is the story of the civil rights icon's life from boyhood through his tenure as the first openly gay man to hold public office in California, to his assassination. Grammy and Tony Award-nominated composer Andrew Lippa tells the tale through soaring melodies and beautiful lyrics.
Now for the first time ever, I Am Harvey Milk will be presented along with the world premiere of Lippa's newest work, I Am Anne Hutchinson. Hutchinson is viewed by many as the mother of women's rights and religious tolerance in America. In 1637, the Massachusetts Bay Colony tried her for insubordination to the established patriarchal church for the "sin" of forming women's study groups. While she was branded a radical, like Milk centuries later, her tragic end only strengthened her legend, furthering her cause of women's independence and pursuit of spiritual grace.
Join Broadway superstar Kristin Chenoweth and Andrew Lippa for this spectacular celebration of human rights activists and power in believing in yourself.
Miramar brings nostalgic love songs to a new generation. They revive the bolero, a traditional Latin American song form, by following in the footsteps of the great Puerto Rican troubadours of the 1950's and 60's. They perform a mix of original and classic tunes drawing upon such great artist as Sylvia Rexach, Felipe 'La Voz' Rodriguez and duo Irizarry de Cordova. A portion of Miramar's repertoire also includes Portuguese and Greek pieces that emerged from similar international song movements that paralleled the Latin American bolero revolution.
Yeni Nostalji is a music group based in Richmond, Virginia. Their mission is to share timeless music and performances inspired by Turkish pop of the 1960's and 70's. Founded by singer Christina Marie, who initially joined forces with Turkish American guitarist Evrim Doğu and keyboardist Jeff London. "I believe that we were brought together for a reason," Christina says. "This is my calling. To help preserve the spirit of the music coming from Turkey during these decades."
