Adventure Stage Chicago to Present REPRISE This September
An old man returns a violin to Northwestern Settlement. Ms. Harriet Vittum lent it to him 80 years earlier with the promise that he bring it back when he was done. With original music and lyrics inspired by Chicago's cultural traditions, Reprise follows an immigrant story as we discover what he did with the instrument all those years, how he knew he was finished, and what it meant to keep his promise.
The only North American company commissioned to participate in the National Theatre of Scotland's Home Away Festival, ASC will tell the story of this decades-long community connection during a limited three-show engagement, running Friday, September 16 at 7pm, and Saturday, September 17 4pm & 7:30pm.
Reprise is directed by Sarah Rose Graber, produced by Casey Pilkenton, with compositions and musical direction by John Szymanski, and features Felipe Carrasco, Sindy I. Castro, Mara Dale, Jacob Kelly, La Shone Kelly, Jose Nateras, Kalman Strauss, and Justine C. Turner, with Brandon Wardell (lighting and scenic design); Jessica Kuehnau Wardell (costume and scenic design); and Jen Poulin (stage management).
This production is supported in part by: the National Theatre of Scotland; the British Association for American Studies, US Embassy, London; and the Old Town School of Folk Music.
