“THANK GOD WE PERCEIVE TIME AS LINEAR!”
An Evening With Christiana Cole
Music Direction by Arri Simon
Nothing is more overwhelming than the unstoppable march of time, but without it, theatre and music would be impossible. Christiana Cole writes musical theatre about singing animals to mitigate her existential angst. Singing pigs, singing hamsters, and even singing humans take center stage in this songbook. In selections from “The Piglets” (the story of the Three Little Pigs twenty years after the Wolf Incident, with collaborator Dina Pruzhansky), the original straw house pig and her daughter, Pinky, are respectively outraged and intrigued by a house made of something more substantial than straw. “The Charm,” a ten-minute musical with composer David Shenton, tells the story of a newlywed prince and princess who travel the world looking for a love charm. “The Charm” was a finalist in the 2013 SoundBites festival, and is now being developed as a full-length piece. Songs about time travel, turkeys, and love round out the program.
