 Spring 2015 Season

Marie Antoinette: The Color of Flesh by Joel Gross

January 23-25 and January 30-February 1

Joe Short, guest director

Media spin and class struggle. Those words bring up images of current events, but playwright Joel Gross uses these issues as jumping off points for Marie Antoinette, The Color of Flesh, set in 18th century France. Gross creates a triangle of three cast members: the “virgin queen”, her official portrait painter Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun (both figures from history) and Count Alexis - an invented, but entirely believable ladies’ man. Politics and love catch all three of them in a tangled net in a era when queens were political pawns, court painters were rarely women, and aristocrats knew little hardship. 
Director Joe Short (seen most recently in the Gamm’s production of Hedda Gabler) brings us a story of three people who all have a journey to make, as their society heads toward revolution.

For this production, guest artists include scenic designer Cheryl deWardener of Rhode Island, Tim Cryan of New York as lighting designer, and Lisa Polito of Boston for costume design. Live music will be incorporated into the play, performed by Jen Langevin, a senior music performance major at the University of Rhode Island. Megan Chang is the resident vocal coach.

What Dreams May Come: a Musical Revue

February 6-8

 Jimmy Calitri, resident director and Managing Director, Theatre

Shakespeare’s quote from Hamlet serves as both title, and basic theme for the songs included in this revue. Centered around dreams of what we want to do, what we wish we’d done, and the unknown of our futures, ten singers take to the stage to tell us of their deepest desires and their personal journeys. The songs in the revue span more than five decades of Broadway and include selections from eight musicals including Sweet Charity, Jekyll and Hyde, and The Addams Family; these alone garnered 11 Tonys among them during their original and revival productions. 

Rhode Island is the home base for director Jimmy Calitri, and he is joined by fellow Rhode Islanders Lila Kane as musical director, Chelsea Cook as choreographer, and Daniel Caplin ’14 returning to his alma mater as lighting designer.  Megan Chang is the resident vocal coach, and a recent addition to the state herself.
