THE STUDIO THEATRE™ TIERRA DEL SOL is always kind in sending us releases and updates about their upcoming productions. Because there are other things going on in The Villages besides…well, you probably know what we’re talkin’ ’bout. So we’re happy to help support and promote what they’ve got going on and are definitely going to plan on catching one of these plays someday in the near future.
One of their upcoming shows, opening later this summer in August, sounds like quite an intriguing one (perhaps this is the one we’ll have to make the trek to see). Elegies is a production by Tony Award-winning composer, William Finn, inspired by the horrific events that took place in New York City on September 11th (more below).
“This 5-person show is inspired by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Elegies is a heartfelt collection of songs about the deaths of various people Finn has known, including some of his closest friends and family members. This work is a commentary on the rewards and woes of being part of a family, a group of friends, and a society in good times and bad. Although the show is all about death and dying, it’s no sad trip down memory lane. Never morbid, Elegies is touching, funny, and ultimately buoyant; floating on the spirits of those who inhabit its songs.” – TheSharonStudio.com
