This poignant play takes a look at the de-industrial revolution through the lens of a history play, but also delves into the issues of today: the economy, immigration, race-relations in America, and politics.

Violinist Kristin Lee and Pianist Jeremy Jordan Perform Americana - Live Online - Presented by Adelphi University - Violinist Kristin Lee and pianist Jeremy Jordan join forces for a virtual recital presented by Adelphi University. The program, entitled Americana, showcases a broad spectrum of illustrious composers and the American musical styles which influenced them, as well as their own musical styles which influenced generations of composers to come. This concert will be streamed LIVE from the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, and tickets are available for $10 at www.adelphi.edu/events/violinist-kristen-lee-americana. A link with a special access code to watch the livestream will be delivered in the order confirmation email. The performance will not remain online for later viewing. A native of Seoul, Korea, Kristin Lee emigrated to the U.S. at the age of seven. During her childhood, playing the violin was a refuge for Kristin from bullying and racism - she moved to the U.S. not speaking any English, and feels the violin became her voice. As a foreign-born citizen of America, Lee was compelled to select this repertoire to express her pride of the country she now calls her own, and offers this program that has a distinct and recognizable sound of American music and its rich history. The repertoire for this performance includes Jeremy Jordan's Fish Me a Dream; Jonathan Ragonese's Non-Poem No. 4; Harry Burleigh's Four Southland Sketches; Patrick Castillo's Cirque for solo violin; Amy Beach's Romance; George Gershwin's But Not for Me (arr. Jeremy Jordan); James Louis "JJ" Johnson's Lament (arr. Jeremy Jordan); Scott Joplin's The Entertainer (arr. Jeremy Jordan); Florence Price's Adoration; and John Novacek's Four Rags. Lee and Jordan have recorded a corresponding album featuring several of these works that will be released in the future. click here

Prometheus Bound - Through the prism of racial and gender injustice, Prometheus Bound is a protest against the discrepancy between what's legal and what's right, against oppression veiled as order. Director Ran Xia sets Howard Rubenstein's adaptation of Aeschylus's Prometheus Bound against a backdrop of the tumultuous American socio-political climate. Prometheus Bound is fully designed and staged for an audience of no one in The Tank's 98-seat theater. Instead, it is captured for the screen by Iris Media Works as a purely cinematic experience, with masks, original music and deeply compelling performances of the late Rubenstein's visionary text. The cast for Prometheus Bound includes Sophia Aranda, Juan Arturo, Olivia Rose Barresi, Chloe Simone Crawford, Brenda Crawley, Iván Hernandez, Macy Lanceta, Alice Marcondes, and Kaila Wooten. click here
