BuyTickets_240px-no-feeThe Language Archive
Written by: Julia Cho      Directed by: Jeff Siuda
May 27-June 4

This romantic-comedy in the spirit of magical-realist writers like Salman Rushdie and Gabriel Garcia Marquez tells the story of George, a world-renowned linguist and head of the prestigious Language Archive.

IMG_4438 rev
So consumed is George with preserving and documenting the dying languages of far-flung cultures that he is unable to see that his wife, Mary, is planning on leaving him, or that his long-time lab assistant, Emma, is desperately in love with him. In addition, his professional life is upended when he learns that the last two surviving speakers if Elloway, reputed to be the world’s most beautiful language and soon to be recorded for the Archive, are currently giving each other the silent treatment.

Throw in a mysterious baker, an intimidating language tutor, and the founder of the universal language Esperanto, and what you have is a hilarious and moving theatrical fable about what we really mean when we say “I love you.”

During the Serbian-Bulgarian War of 1885 a noble young Bulgarian woman (Raina) aids an escaping enemy soldier (Bluntschli) she calls “her chocolate cream soldier”. Some months later, the war resolved, the soldier is unexpectedly invited as a guest by her father (Petkoff) and fiancé (Saranoff). Comedy ensues as hearts follow courses that were not anticipated. Shaw delves into romantic entanglements and the heroic ideal with his usual humor and insight.
Classics Theater of Rochester is an inclusive and educationally based non-profit dedicated to bringing great works of literature to the Rochester stage. This is our fifth Shaw production in as many years. We presented “The Philanderer” at MuCCC in 2014 and “Candida” in 2015. You could almost call us Rochester’s Shaw Company.

Performances: May 13, 14, 19, 20, and 21 at 8 PM and May 15 at 2 PM.

All’s Well that Ends Well, by William Shakespeare, presented by the Shakespeare Players

BuyTickets_240px-no-feeAll’s Well that Ends Well, by William Shakespeare, presented by the Shakespeare Players program of the Rochester Community Players, directed by Cece McFarland

** Interpreted for the Deaf April 23 

Shakespeare Plays of Rochester presents William Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well April 8 through 23 at the AllsWell7Multi-use Community Cultural Center, 142 Atlantic Avenue.

Dr. CeCe McFarland, the director, has chosen a fairy-tale setting for this fantastical comedy in which Helena, a woman of modest birth, pursues her true love, the well-born Bertram.

Helena’s questionable tactics are marked by the intrigue and comic trickery for which Shakespeare is known, and, of course,  give rise to the famous saying about how things turn out.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on April 8-9, 14-16, 21-23, and at 2 p.m. on April 10 and 17.

For more information contact James Landers, the producer, at halfmoon@rochester.rr.com (585) 315-6122 or visit Rochester Shakespeare Players at www.rochestercommunityplayers.org. Tickets will be available at the door and online at www.muccc.org.

$19 general admission, $14 Seniors over 65, $9 Juniors under 25.

The Seafarer, by Conor McPherson, presented by the Irish Players

BuyTickets_240px-no-feeThe Seafarer, by Conor McPherson, presented by the Irish Players program of the Rochester Community Players, directed by Jean Ryon

CITY REVIEW: “”The Seafarer” at MuCCC   Alone at sea  By Leah Stacy

Sharky has been away a long time, and he says he’s come home to take care of his newly blind brother. It’s Christmas Eve so naturally there’s a card game on — but for Sharky, the stakes are really, really high.

“…a supernatural drama that combines the folksy sensibilities of an Irish ghost story with the streetwise dialogue of modern day Dublin.” (Wade Bradford, plays.about.com)

“The play is brilliant and McPherson, as both writer and director, has given us plenty to ponder. If a good musical leaves you with a song in your head, a good play leaves you with characters that stay in your heart. The Seafarer is such a play, and it takes you on a journey that offers no transfers or returns.” (Barbara Mehlman & Geri Manus, newyorktheatreguide.com)

Featuring Tom Bigongiari, Ken Dauer, Mark John Donahue, John R. Jaeger, and Gregory Ludek.
