The Water Coolers

Sunday, October 23, 2011 - 3:00pm

For anyone who’s ever been held captive by a help line (“And Hold Please”), stalked by a sales parent (“Who Will Buy – This Crap for My Kid’s School?”), or found themselves judged by how many words a minute they can type with their thumbs (“Blackberry”), The Water Coolers take a hilarious look at what we go through just making every week happen.

Simply put – it’s your life, but killer funny.

Presented off-Broadway in 2002 by Steven Baruch, Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, Pete Herber, Ross Meyerson, Ken Gentry and Rodger Hess.

Carpe Diem

Sunday, January 15, 2012 - 3:00pm

A classical string quartet that rocks? Yes!

Carpe Diem String Quartet is quickly becoming the premiere American “Indie” string quartet. The group performs the classical string quartet repertoire, but their musical passion has led them down the paths of Gypsy, tango, folk, pop, rock, and jazz-inspired music. Collaborations that showcase Carpe Diem’s outside-the-box programs include concerts with Graeme Boone, banjo; Peter Soave, accordion/ bandoneon; and Willy Porter, guitarist and songwriter.

"Take Me Home: A John Denver Tribute"

Tuesday, May 1, 2012 -7:00pm

Jim Curry began his music career by writing and performing the opening song, “The Time of Your Life” for his senior play. The song was voted to be the 1975 class song, and Jim was awarded a Rotary Scholarship to study music in college. Even at this early stage in his life Jim’s natural voice resembled that of singer/songwriter John Denver. Embracing the similarities, Jim continued to sing and specialize in the songs of John Denver, sharing John’s positive messages of love, humanity and environmental awareness.

The untimely death of John Denver in 1997 was a tragedy that was felt the world over. Such a void in the musical world left John’s ardent fans demanding that his music survive. CBS television responded by producing a made-for-TV movie: “Take Me Home, the John Denver Story” in which Jim landed an off-camera role as the singing voice of John Denver. This experience inspired Jim to produce full-length John Denver tribute concerts.
