Event description: This original one-man show on the life and music of French composer Reynaldo Hahn draws on his experiences and relationships - particularly those with his closest friends, the famous actress Sarah Bernhardt and the exceptional writer Marcel Proust (who in many ways acted as his greatest muse) - and celebrates the inspirations of his music. The performance moves between text, music, and poetry to evoke not only a singular composer, but also an era when cultures were defined by their artists.

Event description: In 1973, Abbigale Archibald returns to her childhood home, a sprawling antebellum plantation in rural Sunshine, Louisiana, to take care of some family business. When she arrives, the ghosts of her long-departed family slowly start to reappear. As Abbey relives the decades-old events of December 1941 that led to her family’s demise, she is reminded of the fact that, no matter how terrible your family is, it is yours, and you only get one.  The Wicked One, which is evocative of such American classics as Desire Under the Elms and Buried Child, is a new play written by senior theatre major Christopher Murray and directed by Joel Grothe.
