On the evenings of March 5th and March 12th, GCB joined the cast of THE EVENTS at the New York Theater Workshop on East 4th Street in Manhattan. The hit of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it garnered five-star reviews, along with a Fringe First and the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award, the Actors Touring Company production of THE EVENTS has gone on to international acclaim and came to New York for a strictly limited engagement in February and March 2015.
The Chorale sang THE EVENTS' lovely music (Bonkers, How Great Thou Art, Soul, Norwegian Coffee Song, Gabrielo Princep, and We Are All Here ) that underscored Award-winning Scottish playwright David Greig’s play about a community’s search for compassion, peace and understanding in the wake of unthinkable violence. The Chorale also sang a selection (This Heart) from our recently commissioned work, Three Joyce Poems, by Vince Peterson, which debuted at our January Concert.
A few of us showed off our Thespian skills in impromptu roles during the play.
...you know who you are.
