The Living Music Event will showcase a fusion of theater and music. The event features six original short plays crafted by WCT playwrights and performed by WCT actors; each play will segue into the song that inspired it sung by Ossining-based vocalist/songwriter Anne Carpenter.
WCT playwrights created an incredible assortment of plays, a mix of compelling dramas and quirky comedies sparked by some of our best-loved songs.
About the plays:
Tomorrow, written and directed by Howard Lipson expresses a young woman's personal challenge to counter the chaos of our world. Inspired by “For What It’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield.
Ode to Clouds written and directed by Carol Mark. Stacey never expected to find herself standing outside on the ledge of her apartment building. And she certainly didn't expect her neighbor to join in. Inspired by “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell.
Skull by Rob McEvily and directed by Samuel Harps presents a pragmatic business magnate in 1930s Manhattan who hopes to secure his place in theater history with legal help from his wayward son. Inspired by "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd.
The Raft at the Moon River by Tara Meddaugh and directed by Brenda Hettmansberger sees two rabbits fleeing for their lives while they await a raft promising safe passage across the Moon River to a perfect land. Inspired by “Moon River” by Henry Mancini.
Crazy Ladies Night Out, written by Lori Myers and directed by Peter Andrews, shows what happens when filmdom's most twisted women get together for an evening of confessions, revelations, and lots of vodka. Inspired by “Twisted” by Wardell Gray and Annie Ross; covered by Joni Mitchell.
Weighting for Mr. Right, written and performed by Julie Griffin and directed by Mel Nocera. It’s about Hunger. The hunger to be seen, the hunger to matter and the hunger for a better life. Inspired by “Gravity” by Sara Bareilles.
