Passing Strange Creator Stew Will Join Dael Orlandersmith for Forever Talkback
Orlandersmith's solo drama runs at New York Theatre Workshop.
The New York Theatre Workshop production of Dael Orlandersmith's Forever will host a talkback featuring Tony winner Stew (Passing Strange) following the May 14 performance. Writer/performer Orlandersmith will chat with the musician about artistic influences and how music has shaped their lives and work.
Forever draws from Orlandersmith's own pilgrimage to the famed Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, the final resting place of legendary artists such as Marcel Proust, Oscar Wilde and Jim Morrison. At the graveside of these timeless artists, Orlandersmith finds unexpected grace in a gripping tale of the legacy a daughter inherits from her mother.
The solo drama features scenic design by Takeshi Kata, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Mary Louise Geiger, and sound design by Adam Phalen. It was originally commissioned and produced by Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles.
The run at New York Theatre Workshop is scheduled to conclude on May 31.
