Stage and Concerts 

 

Wednesday-Sunday, through April 26 – San Jose Stage Company presents “Death of a Salesman” – The Pulitzer Prize and Tony® Award-winning American classic by Arthur Miller. Considered one of the greatest American plays ever written, this powerful and provocative drama is Miller’s scathing indictment of the American Dream and will be directed by Kenneth Kelleher (who recently received Best Director for SJSC’s production of The Threepenny Opera – Theatre Bay Area Awards 2014) and will feature San Jose Stage Artistic Director Randall King as Willy Loman.

Thursday-Sunday – through April 19 – City Lights Theater Company presents “M. Butterfly” – Drawn from real-life events, this modern classic weaves realism, ritual, and vivid theatricality into an exotic and haunting tale of a French diplomat’s gradual, inevitable submission to the delicate charms of a Chinese opera star who personifies his fantasy vision of submissive oriental sexuality. M Butterfly underscores the irony of that fantasy as it closely parallels the events of Puccini’s famous opera Madame Butterfly and becomes a powerful exploration of East-West relations and the persistent romanticism that continues to cloud and complicate them to this day.– Thurs-Sat, 8pm; Sun, 2pm. Wed, Apr. 15th, 8pm. $17-32. No matinee Mar 22 or performance April 5; 408-295-4200; www.cltc.org

Coming Up

 

The Tabard Theatre Company at Theatre on San Pedro Square concludes its 2014-2015 season themed “It’s All About Perspective!” with the Tony-nominated and Drama Critics’ Circle Award-winning musical VIOLET, featuring music by Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Shrek the Musical) and libretto by Brian Crawley (A Little Princess, The Musical).  Award-winning director Jay Manley helms the production, which runs at Theatre on San Pedro Square April 10 through May 3.

 

Charles Isherwood of TheNew York Times called VIOLET “an enduringly rewarding musical,” and lauds Jeanine Tesori’s music as “…her warmest, most accessible score… with its tangy flavors of country, gospel, blues, and honky-tonk rock.”  The Chicago Tribune raved, “…the story packs an uncommon emotional intensity… the music is uncommonly beautiful.”

 

Based on the short story “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts, VIOLET is set in the deep south of 1964.  The musical tells the story of a young disfigured woman who embarks on a journey by bus from her father’s farm in Spruce Pine, North Carolina, to Tulsa, Oklahoma, in search of a televangelist whom she hopes will be able to heal her.  Along the way, she meets two soldiers, Flick, a black sergeant, and Monty, a young white corporal, bound for Fort Smith, Arkansas.  Together the three find themselves on a journey of discovery, love, courage, inner healing, and acceptance.

 

VIOLET was developed at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Music Theatre Conference in 1994.  It premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons on March 11, 1997, where it won the Drama Critics’ Circle Award and the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical.  VIOLET opened on Broadway in April 2014, starring Sutton Foster in her Tony-nominated role of “Violet.”

 

In choosing VIOLETfor Tabard’s 14th season, Producing Artistic Director, Cathy Spielberger Cassetta states, “VIOLET is one of those shows that just makes you feel good and glad to be alive.  It is touching, engaging, and compelling. The score is glorious, rousing, exciting, and uplifting. Our cast is outstanding.  The material is brilliantly creative, and I am thrilled to be bringing VIOLET to South Bay audiences.  This is a great way to finish our 14th season. Yes, I am excited about VIOLET.”

 

VIOLET Director, Jay Manley, adds, “I’ve directed dozens of musicals, but few have touched me so deeply.  VIOLET makes one “feel” in a profound and unusual way.  It has so much “heart.”  I think that’s because we can all relate to Violet’s situation; it’s universal.  We have all felt “different” and excluded at some time in our lives.  So her transformation is truly inspirational, moving and joyous.  And the music!  From rousing anthems and gospel to gorgeous character ballads – it’s a treasure trove of musical gems – truly a great musical theatre score.  How exciting for us to be bringing this rarely-seen show to a new audience that I feel certain will fall in love with it as we have done.”

 

For every production, Tabard donates a portion of its concession proceeds to a local nonprofit that is in some way related to the show.  Tabard’s designated non-profit for VIOLET is Community United San Jose for the work they do providing under-served young people with learning opportunities in arts and science.

 

VIOLETwill run April 10 through May 3, at the intimate Theatre on San Pedro Square, 29 North San Pedro Street, in downtown San Jose.  The musical will perform Friday evenings at 8 pm; Saturdays at 3 pm and 8 pm, and Sundays at 2 p.m.  There will be two Thursday night performances on April 23 and 30 at 8 p.m.

 

Tickets are available at www.tabardtheatre.org, or by calling 408-679-2330.  Cabaret Seating $38; Adults $32; Seniors $30; Students and Full-time Adult Students $15.   Advance purchase is strongly recommended.
