Chicago – Directed by Johanna McKenzie Miller, Cindy Gold and Cassie Slater star in The Memory Show – A tale of mother and daughter and their struggle to make sense of their relationship when faced with disease and hardship. The Memory Show combines evocative and powerful contemporary music with a humorous, touching and heartfelt examination of colliding perceptions, truths, desires and memories that are inherent in familial relationships.

Monday, September 30th @ 7pm
Venus Cabaret at The Mercury Theater Chicago
3745 N Southport Ave.
FREE  — we will be accepting donations for the Alzheimer’s Association throughout the evening.

The Memory Show, with music by Zach Redler and book & lyrics by Sara Cooper was originally developed and produced at Barrington Stage and went on to a successful Off-Broadway run produced by Transport Group Theare Company. Ben Brantley of The New York Time wrote, “In shaping a portrait of a mother with Alzheimer’s disease and the angry, impotent daughter who cares for her, the young composer Zach Redler has written a score that follows the patterns of minds grasping, often in vain, for clarity, conviction and lost time.”

Cindy Gold, has been seen on TV in Leverage and TNT’s Empire. She earned a Jeff Award for her portrayal of Gertrude Stein in Frank Galati and Stephen Flaherty’s Loving Repeating. She has appeared with The Goodman Theatre, Lookingglass Theatre, Glimmerglass Opera, Broadway in Chicago, Drury Lane Oakbrook, Madison Rep, Notre Dame Shakespeare, Shakespeare Sedona, Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Boston Shakespeare, Peninsula Players, The Lyric Opera Chicago, and Washington D.C. National Opera at the Kennedy Center

The Falling and The Rising - New Orleans Opera

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at 7:30pm

The Jefferson Performing Arts Center

This music drama is free and open to the public but you must have a ticket to enter. Call the box office at (504) 529-3000 to secure your seat.

The Falling and The Rising chronicles the journey of a soldier recovering from a roadside attack. While in a medically-induced coma, she imagines interactions with fellow service members, each sharing a particular tale that provides insights into her own situation. The dedication and resiliency she discovers with them helps her find the strength to recover, and to return home to her family.

This collaborative effort by members of The U.S. Army Field Band and the team of Zach Redler, composer, and Jerre Dye, librettist, was inspired by collective interviews with dozens of active duty Army veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, Fort George G. Meade, Maryland, and Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall.

 “I have a whole new understanding of my role as a soldier,” said Sgt. 1st Class Ben Hilgert, the co-creator and executive producer of “The Falling and The Rising.” “You can’t hear those stories and have it not change you. This project tells the Army story in a very human way. The stories contained in the opera speak truth to the service of soldiers, while at the same time highlighting the resiliency and strength demanded of them.”

“…this is the first opera produced and performed by active duty soldiers. Their connection, experience and commitment honors those who serve in defense of the nation and its ideals.” – Garnett Bruce, Artistic Advisor of the San Antonio Opera

Composed by Zach Redler

Libretto byJerre Dye

Conducted byRobert Lyall

Directed byJerre Dye

Designed byChris Rynne

Accompanied by members oft the Louisiana Philharmonic

In collaboration with the US Army Field Band and Soldiers Chorus.

It is the evening of April 4, 1968.  Mister John, elevator operator at the Sears Crosstown Building, has just been promoted.  As he trains his replacement, he remembers his father, whose example allowed him to become the man he is.

Movin' Up in the World premiered as a part of the Ghosts of Crosstown project in 2014. In 2018, it was brought back as a featured opera in the Midtown Opera Festival and was directed by innaugural McCleave Fellow Dennis Whitehead Darling and performed by Darren Stokes.

Adam is the story of the creation of the world's first sentient artificial human.
