MusicalFare Theatre 2013-2014 Season

THE WHO’S TOMMY - February 19 - March 30, 2014
 THE WHO’S TOMMY is the seminal rock opera of our time!  The classic story of the “Deaf, dumb and blind kid” who becomes a media sensation comes to the MusicalFare stage in a high-energy, rollicking production.  The first WNY production in almost 20 years, THE WHO’S TOMMY will feature incredible design elements, exhilarating choreography and the iconic score by The Who, which features Top 40 hits such as “Pinball Wizard,” “See Me, Feel Me,” and “I’m Free.”  It’s an event-musical that you will not want to miss! 

ADRIFT IN MACAO - April 23 - Sunday, May 25th, 2014
 A loving musical comedy parody of film noir movies.  Everyone that comes to Rick’s Nightclub in Macao, China in 1952 is waiting for something, and though none of them know exactly what that is, they hang around to find out.   Featuring hysterical quips and songs, puns and farcical shenanigans, the New York Times declared that “the gags come slathered in soy sauce” and called the show “an opportunity for laughs.” www.canalbankshuffle.com

February 6 - March 2

A BBC reporter who has been covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict stops for a coffee in a local Tel Aviv café to talk to Israelis about their perspectives. After a number of revealing interviews with a surprisingly international group, a suicide bomber enters the shop, killing most of the people who have appeared to tell their stories. Such is the compelling tale that spills forth in DAI (enough in Hebrew), by Israeli playwright Iris Bahr, which runs February 6 - March 2 at the Jewish Repertory Theatre.

DAI opens Thursday, February 6, and runs through March 2, with performances on Thursdays (7:30 p.m.), Saturdays (4 & 8 p.m.) and Sundays (2 p.m.) at the Maxine and Robert Seller Theatre in the JCC at 2640 North Forest Road in Getzville, NY. Student and group discounts are available as are special receptions with prior arrangements. For more information, call 716-204-2255 or visit www.jewishrepertorytheatre.com

Rosch Recital Hall/SUNY Fredonia

Thirty-three years young in 2013-14, the Grammy Award-winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet is one of the most multifaceted groups in any genre.  Enthusiastically referred to by the Los Angeles Times as “The world’s hottest classical ensemble or its tightest pop band,” the LAGQ is comprised of four uniquely accomplished musicians: John Dearman, Matthew Greif, William Kanengiser, and Scott Tennant.  Bringing a new energy to the concert stage with programs ranging from Bluegrass to Bach, they consistently play to sold out houses worldwide. Their inventive, critically acclaimed transcriptions of concert masterworks provide a fresh look at the music of the past, while their interpretations of works from the contemporary and world music realms continually break new ground. Programs including Latin, African, Far East, Irish, Folk and American Classics transport listeners around the world in a single concert experience. Their appearance at Fredonia will include a special joint performance with the Fredonia Guitar Ensemble, a student ensemble led by James Piorkowski.  The groups will perform 'SHIKI: Seasons of Japan,”  written specifically for the LAGQ plus guitar orchestra by Japanese composer Shingo Fujii, a powerful and moving work that is connecting communities across the nation. Tickets for both events are on sale now at the SUNY Fredonia ticket office: (716) 673-3501 by phone, online at www.fredonia.edu/tickets, or in person at the Williams Center.  Tickets are $30 ($12 for students with ID) and include reserved seating and a post-concert reception with the artists.
