DIG - A World Premier Play by Natalie Gaupp presented via Video on Demand

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents the world premiere of the original work DIG written by UTA’s playwright-in-residence, Dr. Natalie Gaupp as a part of the Theatre Arts Teaching Lab.

DIG follows the story of the Dewitt brothers, two young men who despise each other. Young attorney Victor has had their small-town home in his rearview mirror for years, pursuing his career in a metropolitan city. Eliot has become a virtual recluse caring for their mother, Lina, who is staging with Alzheimer’s. But now Vic’s back, prompted by a disturbing call from a neighbor. Vic is set to interrogate his brother about the present situation, but Eliot has his own slate of questions about the past. Even Lina has an agenda. She’s out in the back lot. Digging. Morning ‘til night. And she’s just about to uncover the answers her sons are looking for, whether they’re ready—or not.

DIG will be streamed via Video On Demand from April 16-18, 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. To purchase the Video On Demand rental, please visit their virtual Box Office.

University of Texas at Arlington’s Department of Theatre Arts presents TRAGEDIANS ANONYMOUS

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents a dynamic play reading of TRAGEDIANS ANONYMOUS written by Rebecca Salomonsson.

TRAGEDIANS ANONYMOUS sees tragic characters Ophelia, Lady Anne, Romeo, and Juliet, seek support at the Tragedians Anonymous group led by Prospero, where the meeting’s theme is “Identify those who wrong us and those who we wrong.” In this smart, laugh-out-loud comedy, the characters confront the other characters in their plays as well as their Fatal Flaws, who come to life online! This virtual masterpiece is a fantastic comic send-up and tribute to Shakespeare’s tragedies that also re-familiarizes us with the storylines and characters of some of Shakespeare’s greatest works.

An Evening in Italy Provided by Timeless Concerts in Downtown Arlington on April 24

Evening in Italy is coming up April 24 at 8 pm at the Arlington Museum of Art with music by Italian composers that span centuries, from the early music of Rossini and Paganini, to Italian-American Henry Mancini. Italians love their opera so Timeless Concerts' tenors Don O'Neal LeBlanc and Sergio Cepeda will sing opera's greatest hits from Puccini to Verdi. Find out which opera aria has been performed in 18 different movies! Also, learn how a famous piano concerto by Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninov was based on a theme by Paganini. Timeless Concerts' instrumentalists are pianists Heejung Kang and Erik Barnes, violinist/violist Tim Angel, cellist Oliver Schlaffer and violinist LeeAnne Chenoweth.

Timeless Concerts' performers hope with all the losses our audience has endured this past year, that they can provide an event that everyone can look forward to enjoying. Tickets for Evening in Italy are now live on their website. Beautiful music and time spent together, is more important than ever and healing. Although Timeless Concerts is very sad that they didn't perform our annual "Valentines Special and Fundraiser," they say they are blessed, because their nonprofit organization is surviving, and will perform a great concert on April 24!

Timeless Concerts is pretty certain that covid restrictions will be required in late April when they perform with things expected to be the same as when they performed two socially distanced concerts in July and September of 2020, such as temperatures possibly be taken at the entrance, masks required when not at your table, only an audience of 70, and covered dessert plates on the individual tables instead of the traditional buffet. Hopefully, their July 10 concert can be maskless and back to normal.

You can read more about Timeless Concerts on their home page where they have a promo video.

University of Texas at Arlington’s Department of Theatre Arts presents SPRING AWAKENING via Video on Demand

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents SPRING AWAKENING. This Tony Award nominated rock musical is based on the 1819 German play, Spring Awakening, written by Frank Wedekind.

SPRING AWAKENING critiques the hypocrisy of institutional doctrine (especially in relation to sex education, religious concepts of sin, and a culture of shame) as a means to control young adults and promote abstinence. Particularly in a time of civil unrest, SPRING AWAKENING calls into question what is promoted to children as “normal” and what is “unnatural.” Though dealing with difficult themes like suicide and sexual abuse, the message of the musical is to rage against the status quo in order to protect individual expression and thought. The younger generations must hold their elders accountable and push back in order to create a world with more compassion and understanding of the individual.

SPRING AWAKENING will be streamed via Video On Demand from April 2-5 9-12 (new dates), 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. To purchase the Video On Demand rental, please visit our Virtual Box Office.

Lumedia Musicworks Highlights Baroque Composer Barbara Strozzi Jan. 8-Feb. 2, Online

For the second of its four-part Early Women Composers series “Stories,” Lumedia Musicworks celebrates the music and legacy of composer Barbara Strozzi. The comedic video history and performance debuts Friday, Jan. 8, online. There’s no charge for tickets, but registration is required.

The event ends at 11:59 p.m. Feb. 2. The host is historical storyteller Elaine Scholly of Dallas.

Strozzi (1619-1677) was an Italian composer and singer in the baroque period. She wrote primarily for solo voice, and she was one of the most prolific composers in Italy. However, like most female composers of her time, Strozzi and her music received little attention and they are largely forgotten

Lumedia offers an example of her sacred works in a performance of “Salve Sancta Caro,” (“Hail Holy Flesh”).

“Her music, extreme for the time, is compelling. It brings the listener along with unexpected twists and turns,” said Julianna Emanski of Frisco, Lumedia’s artistic director. “Her compositions have both power and intimacy. They are fresh and relevant to today’s music lovers.”

Jendi Tarde of Plano directed the video.
