Now Playing Onstage in Columbus - Week of 2/16/2014 SAN FERMIN
Wexner Center for the Arts
2/19-2/19/2014
Fans of Dirty Projectors and Sufjan Stevens will also go for the music of San Fermin, a band spearheaded by the classically trained Ellis Ludwig-Leone, a close collaborator with rising-star composer Nico Muhly. Taking the band's name from Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises and its scenes from the famous Pamplona festival where they hold the running of the bulls, Ludwig-Leone fashions baroquely detailed chamber-pop songs centered on the complexities of being young and in love. With songs replete with unexpected hooks, gorgeous melodies, and vocal harmonies, plus sections of melancholy orchestral drones and lyrical twists, San Fermin are widely tapped to be a band on the rise. Sway to their intricately layered music, which reveals fresh rewards for discerning listeners. Opening the show is composer, producer, and performer Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott)-a past NPR "Best New Artist of the Year"-who is known in indie circles for his wide-ranging experimentalism, participation in his s/s/s project with Sufjan Stevens and Serengeti, and other collaborations across the artistic spectrum.

Curtain Players Theatre

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg's career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate's career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park - or that has found him - bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.
