THE THEOLOGY OF HA!: David Misch

Thu, Mar 25, 6:30 pm ET, $20

Is there a relationship between comedy and the divine? (Here you say "Are you nuts?") But hang on, maybe there is. Both start with a premise: one, that there's an all-powerful, omniscient being who watches over the world; the other, that a priest, a rabbi and a gecko would walk into a bar. In comedy, accept the premise and you get a laugh - in religion, accept the higher power and you get eternal life, emotional support and answers to all questions. (This may explain why there are more religious people than stand-ups.) Comedy writer David Misch uses Animal House, Steve Carell, Waiting for Godot, Walt Disney and The Name of the Rose to discuss whether comedy is fundamentally cruel or empathetic; how religion's search for meaning has a corollary in comedy's search for a punchline; how laughter is like religious ecstasy and transcendence; and how to achieve divinity through fart jokes. Seriously.

BERNSTEIN ON BROADWAY AT THE BICENTENNIAL

Thu, Apr 8, 1:30-3:30 pm ET, $50*

Leonard Bernstein and Alan Jay Lerner wrote 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for Broadway in anticipation of the United States bicentennial. Begun with great expectations, the work turned out to be the biggest failure of Bernstein's theatrical career, opening on May 4, 1976 and closing seven performances later. Bernstein was so unhappy with the final version of the work that he refused to have the score recorded or published; and so, for Bernstein admirers, this became the "lost score" of his legendary career. After his death, his estate commissioned a concert version of part of the score titled A White House Cantata . What this partial version of selected songs reveals is an exceptionally fine score, with Bernstein effectively fusing the theater and classical sides of his compositional style, and Alan Jay Lerner again writing with the keen sense of character and sharp wit that characterized his work with Frederic Loewe. The lost score-at least some of it-is found, and happily well worth getting to know. Come listen with expert Louis Rosen.
