An intimate chat with Portland artist Tim Stapleton.
This week on Adventures in Artslandia, Susannah chats the Artistic Director of Chor Leoni Men’s Choir Erick Lichte about the release of their new CD Wandering Heart, a stunning collection that includes five world premiere recordings including Wandering Heart by Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds with texts by Leonard Cohen.
Susannah chats with Grant Byington who stars in Richard Bean’s internationally acclaimed One Man, Two Guvnors, which is now open at Lakewood Theatre. Songs by Grant Olding, the British comedy is based on an Italian play, The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldini, and transports the classic conundrums of a harlequin hero from 1740s Florence to 1960s Brighton, keeping the age-old traditions of one of the most revered theatre forms—commedia dell’arte. It weaves together elements of improvisation, pantomime, stand-up comedy and music hall revue, and is a hilarious tapestry of wit, slapstick and intrigue.
