The American singer, pianist, songwriter, copywriter and producer Constance Hauman is recognized in the world of indie rock as well as classical music. Hauman, one of Leonard Bernstein's favorite interpreters, has sung over 2,000 opera performances and countless concerts at the following venues: Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Welsh National Opera, English National Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Opera National de Paris, Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, London Symphony and the London Philharmonia. She wrote, played and directed the one-man show 'Exiles in Paradise,' which caused a sensation at 92nd Street Y in New York, Schönberg Hall in Los Angeles, and the Jewish Museum in Berlin. The Wall Street Journal wrote about the artist: 'Constance Hauman's bright, versatile coloratura soprano made headlines throughout the European music scene as the sex goddess in Alban Berg's Lulu. Her sparkling soprano can be heard in a live recording at Chandos, but now her performance song 'Exiles in Paradise', which has been crafted with a meticulousness that deserves a doctoral degree, is performed with equally divine verve by her. Ms. Hauman interprets Friedrich Hollander's melody of 'Falling in Love Again' with such a sensual brilliance and phrasing that is in no way inferior to Marlene. '

There is something special about this time of year. The school schedule is winding down, the sun shines a bit longer in the day, fireflies come out of their hibernation and the Kentucky Shakespeare Company begins their season. This year will mark the venerable company's 59th Anniversary and they are still going strong. So what magic is weaved that keeps this program going year after year? The answer is quite simple really and can be summed up in a few words: imagination, reinvention, education, and dedication. All of these were on full display in the season opener of As You Like It.

Pure Joy turned into Grief and Terror then finally Relief coursed through me. For 90 minutes, I was completely immersed in the experience that is AMPARO. And that is exactly what AMPARO is; a complete theatrical experience. As I am writing this I can still feel all the emotions I went through when I first participated in AMPARO. I say participated because you don't watch AMPARO, you live it. I also haven't stopped talking about it to anyone who will listen and even now when I describe the experience as I am urging family and friends to GO SEE IT, I get goosebumps. I fear that I won't do the experience justice with my mere words but I will do my best.
