Like a hard rock track turned all the way up, this hilarious and riveting one-man tour de force about masculinity, capitalism, and the great American way explodes on to Plays & Players’ stage. In a nonstop, “brilliant” (New York Times) collection of monologues, characters from top to bottom of the eat-or-be-eaten food chain delve into all matters of adult behavior. After a lengthy run Off-Broadway in the 1990s, Obie Award winning playwright Eric Bogosian’s creation is remounted with Philadelphia’s own Eric Scotolati, bringing the era of cable, wall street, and “just say no” perfectly back to life and reminding us how little things change about the larger issues that define our time.
Some things you just can’t bury. 90-year-old grand dame Myrtle Bledsoe has outlived her husband, her daughters and virtually everyone else in Egypt, Texas. But in the last stage of her life, she can’t outlive the truth. Opera Philadelphia proudly presents the East Coast Premiere of this haunting tale of memory and murder, racism and recrimination. Composer Ricky Ian Gordon and librettist/director Leonard Foglia base the opera on a play by Horton Foote, providing the perfect showcase for beloved mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade. Making her Opera Philadelphia debut, von Stade’s formidable bravura has won her wide acclaim, including being called “one of America’s finest artists and singers” by The New York Times.
