Inner Voices: Solo Musicals is part of Primary Stages Spring Celebration celebrating 25 years with 25 days of events.
In 2008, PREMIERES embarked on a new initiative in keeping with its mission to support creative talent, and produced Inner Voices: Solo Musicals at the Zipper Factory Theater. Three new pieces by Ellen Fitzhugh & Michael John LaChiusa, Laura Harrington & Jenny Giering and Michele Lowe & Scott Davenport Richards were presented, featuring Victoria Clark, Jennifer Damiano and Barbara Walsh. Inner Voices: Solo Musicals, inspired by Alan Bennett’s ‘Talking Heads,’ introduced a new genre of theater that unites the spoken monologue into a tapestry of lyrics and music.
Mosaic, by Cheri Steinkellner & Georgia Stitt, is a multi-media, real-time half hour in the life –and on the MacBook – of Ruth, a woman blogging at the crossroads of birth, death, love and Diet Coke. Featuring Heidi Blickenstaff as Ruth with musical direction by Steve Marzullo.
Whida Peru: Resurrection Tangle, by David Simpatico & Josh Schmidt, brings us into the chambers of a rare creature, as she is forced to evaluate the quality of life, death and what lies in between for her. Featuring Judith Blazer as Whida Peru with musical direction by Andy Boroson and J. Oconer Navarro.
The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (Set & Costumes), Jennifer Schriever (Lights), Toby Algya (Sound), and Rocco DiSanti (Video). The Production Stage Manager is Robert Bennett.
Inner Voices: Solo Musicals, a 95-minute presentation,will play a sixteen-performance schedule.
