DUBLIN, THE PRESENT & 40 YEARS AGO
A Life reunites in a beautiful sequel the cast of characters we grew to know and love in Leonard's autobiographical Tony Award winning play, Da. Central to the story is Drumm, intelligent and successful, coming to terms with his past and present. Remarkable in its construction, the play follows the characters as teens and as adults simultaneously, gently weaving reality, perception and selective memory together into the rich and comforting fabric of a life. www.irishclassicaltheatre.com

MF24H: MUSICALFARE 24 HOURS
MusicalFare’s Second Annual 24 Hour New Musical Festival
June 22, 2013
710 Main Theatre
Creativity happens daily at MusicalFare Theatre as shows are constantly being created, developed and produced. What would happen if that ENTIRE PROCESS was done in 24 hours? - From the idea, to the writing, to the rehearsal, to the production?
Now in its second year, MusicalFare 24 Hours (MF24H) features the 24-hour creation, development and performance of FOUR short musicals and their world premieres on June 22, 2013 at 8pm at 710 Main Theatre (formerly Studio Arena) in Buffalo's Theatre District. How it all works:
In early May, MusicalFare will post on its website iconic photos of Buffalo in 4 categories --architecture, landscape, community and industry - and people will be invited to vote on their favorite photograph in each category.
On the evening of Friday, June 21st, there is a “Kick Off” reception at 710 Main Theatre where the winning photograph in each category will be announced and assigned to one of the creative teams as the inspiration for their musical. Each team consists of writers, composers, directors and actors.
At that point, the writers/composers/directors go to rehearsal spaces to conceptualize and write their mini-musicals (overnight). The actors will then report at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 22nd to their creative team to begin rehearsals. The musicals will be taught, rehearsed and memorized to be performed (off-book!) at 710 Main Theatre at 8pm that night.
