BWW Review: RTW's Surreal THE VIOLET HOUR Subtly Colors The Future
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Apr 21, 2017

Violet--The color and time of day named in T.S. Eliot's 1922 epic poem The Waste Land. This color permeates Renaissance Theaterworks (RTW) season ending production figuratively and literally in the Studio Theatre titled The Violet Hour. Directed by Artistic Director Suzan Fete, the comedy infused with a surrealist happening sets a scene in 1919, a few years after World War I and before the Great Depression. The story tantalizes audiences with the question that is prophecy, knowing the future, a gift or a curse? Richard Greenberg's 2003 Broadway play explores this dilemma and models the period's hope and optimism after "a war to end all wars," on characters referencing Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald and chanteuse Josephine Baker. All celebrities who reached a zenith in their careers, and then ended their lives in some despair. When the audience sits in the theater watching from the 2017 perspective, what do they make of these questions, lives and future? (more...)

Tina Chancey, John Mark Rozendaal, Webb Wiggins Perform In the Salon of Mademoiselle Lévi
by BWW News Desk - Apr 18, 2017

Who was the mysterious Mlle. Levi, whose pardessus playing took Paris by storm in 1745? Thought to come from somewhere in the provinces, she burst upon the Concerts Spirituels, a complete unknown; performed there an unprecedented five times in three years among such luminaries as Guignon and Leclair; and then disappeared from view, only to reappear in the Mercure Galant in 1783, advertising for pupils. There is reason to believe she was a Jewess who may have married an officer stationed in the colonies. When she returned to Paris three decades later, quite possibly widowed and penniless, did she try to rekindle the embers of her earlier success by launching her own Salon, where she could perform for, and mingle with potential aristocratic students? This concert features music by Mlle. Levi's friends and contemporaries, composers as Leclair, Marais, Forqueray, Rebel and Couperin, performed by Tina Chancey on five and six-stringed pardessus de viole, John Mark Rozendaal on bass and treble viols, and Webb Wiggins on harpsichord.
