WILSON STAGE

WORLD PREMIERE

By Dan O’Brien
Directed by Elizabeth Williamson

 

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the Public Theater co-commissioned Dan O’Brien to write a play about the place of guns in our country’s story, as part of American Revolutions: The United States History Cycle. The resulting play engages with recent history: the prologue and aftermath of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. Derived closely from documentary source material, the play is at once lyrical and unflinchingly realistic. A heartbreaking and powerful interrogation of the complex causes of gun violence in our culture, Newtown offers in the end the possibility of healing and hope.

Run Time (Approx): 90 minutes (no intermission)

Recommended Ages: 18+

Content Notes: Depiction of gun use, in depth discussions about guns and gun violence, mentions of sexual assault and pedophilia, discussions of death and dying, themes of violence

Hershey Felder as George Gershwin Alone

Gershwin Alone

WILSON STAGE

Captivating audiences around the world, including on Broadway, in London’s West End, and more, Hershey Felder as George Gershwin Alone: A Play with Music tells the story of America’s great composer, who with the groundbreaking “A Rhapsody in Blue” made a “Lady out of Jazz.” The show incorporates the composer’s best-known songs from “The Man I Love” and “Someone to Watch Over Me,” through the hits of An American In Paris and Porgy and Bess, to a complete performance of “Rhapsody in Blue.” Mr. Felder brings to life the spirit and talent of the legendary composer and pianist for the first time in history, leading the audience through the fascinating rhythms of Gershwin’s legendary songbook and his tragically short life.
