The groundbreaking play, The Laramie Project, energized an awareness of American attitudes about violence against the gay community and introduced audiences to the vision and techniques of director Moisés Kaufman. Ten years after the original production based on a true story emerged as the most performed play in America, the Tectonic Theatre Project revisited the community of Laramie, Wyoming on the anniversary of the death of Matthew Shepard. What they found defied their expectations and the result is a new companion piece about how we construct our own history. The Laramie Project and The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later – an Epilogue form a powerful duet which completes an epic investigation of a small town confronting its fears, crimes, biases, behaviors and regrets as revealed by an iconic American tragedy. See either one, or for the total experience, see both! Each play will be performed twice over the course of three days. See page 7 for schedule.

Hold tight as the ordinary turns extraordinary! Catapult from the bustling streets to the skies above Dublin, then plummet deep to the bowels of the earth as three people are ripped from their daily lives and thrown into a fantastical world featuring a lonely young woman looking for love, a mother seeking atonement and a serial killer who has sold his soul to the Devil, resulting in an audacious drama of interlocking monologues. Terminus was a roaring hit when it received its world premiere at the Abbey Theatre in 2007 and has since enjoyed hugely successful runs at New York’s Public Theater and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. And now, this innovative and vivid masterpiece by Mamet-Pinter-Beckett inspired Mark O’Rowe performed by the world-renowned Abbey Theatre of Dublin (The National Theatre of Ireland) kicks off the Annenberg Center’s spring focus on precocious young Irish playwrights. Don’t miss this classic-in-themaking – “a stunning, surprising touching and enormously satisfying thrill ride” (The Irish Times). Recommended for mature audiences.

It’s a true spectacle of wonder and fantasy perfect for adults and children alike! Performances on April 9th are part of the Philadelphia International Children’s Festival.

FRI 8 PM

Over the course of a 40-year career—during which he has collaborated with a myriad of international artists from Paul Simon to Dizzie Gillespie to Ladysmith Black Mambazo to Alvin Ailey—this extraordinary trumpeter and composer has mixed the music of his native South African roots with the pop-jazz of the ‘60s. One of the world’s most versatile artists, Masekela’s Grammy® award-winning hit “Grazing in the Grass” sold over four million copies and made him an international star while his Broadway smash musical Sarafina introduced the sounds and passion of South African music to theatre audiences worldwide. Also known for his tireless work as an anti-Apartheid activist, his hit song “Bring Him Back Home” became an anthem for the Free Nelson Mandela movement. Now this great legend Rolling Stone applauds as being “one of the most thrilling live performers around,” stops in Philadelphia for one night only performing classic favorites as well as hits from his new album Phola.

FRI 8 PM

Always a sell-out, Ladysmith Black Mambazo returns to the Annenberg Center for a special one-night-only performance bringing hits from their new Grammy®-winning album, Ilembe: Honoring Shaka Zulu. Since Paul Simon’s Graceland catapulted Ladysmith Black Mambazo to worldwide fame, this eight-member vocal group has opened doors to South African culture through music, dance and singing. For more than 40 years, they’ve married the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their native South African musical traditions to the sounds and sentiments of Christian gospel music. The result is a not-to-be-missed musical and spiritual alchemy that, according to Simon, emanates “sheer joy and love” and has touched a universal audience representing every corner of the religious, cultural and ethnic landscape.

Take 6 Gospel Concert

APR 30*

Zellerbach Theatre

SAT 8 PM

With its roots in gospel, doo wop, and the sophisticated jazz-influenced singing groups of mid-century America, the powerhouse a cappella vocal group Take 6 is both a throwback to an earlier, more genteel era of African American music and a precursor for a number of black male pop groups of the ‘90s. Formed in 1980, this charismatic sextet sings in a contemporary style, integrating R&B and jazz influences into their devotional songs. Take 6 has 10 Grammy® wins, 10 Dove Awards, one Soul Train Award and two NAACP Image Award nominations and they’re famous for their collaborations with music icons such as Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Ray Charles, Queen Latifah, Brian McKnight and Quincy Jones.

Fiddler Eileen Ivers will change the way you think about the violin! It’s a rare and select grade of artists whose work is so boldly imaginative and clearly virtuosic that it alters the medium while respectfully exploring the traditions and progression of the Celtic fiddle. Her performances and recordings continue to demonstrate why Ivers is called a “sensation” by Billboard magazine, “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin” by the New York Times, “a virtuoso” by The Irish Times and is hailed as one of the great innovators and pioneers of Celtic music. Ivers returns to the Annenberg Center with her band Immigrant Soul for one night only, performing hits from her new album Beyond the Bog Road.

Kathy Mattea

OCT 30*

Zellerbach Theatre

Join us for an unforgettable evening as Kathy Mattea takes the stage with hits from her latest album, Coal, inspired by the Sago, West Virginia Mine Disaster of 2006. This beloved, two-time Grammy®-winning singer of such classics as “18 Wheels and A Dozen Roses” and “Where’ve You Been,” has collected nearly a dozen songs about the human and environmental costs of coal mining in her native West Virginia. A champion of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, Mattea travels the country speaking to crowds about the importance of fighting global warming and the environmental and physical devastation of coal mining. With roots based in traditional Irish music, her energetic delivery captures the injustice, tragedy and pride known by miners and their kin, and effectively translates the experience for listeners who’ve never set foot in hill country.

Mesmerizing, complex, invigorating and compelling are just some of the adjectives that describe this fascinating company. Awarded the City of Edmonton’s prestigious Ambassador for Contemporary Choreography Award, Aszure Barton is in huge demand having created works for Hubbard Street, American Ballet Theatre, Mikhail Baryshnikov, the National Ballet of Canada, Sydney Dance Company and Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal as well as the Broadway production of Three Penny Opera. Barton makes her Philadelphia debut with the premiere of Busk, a full-length work inspired by street performers (buskers) featuring street hoofers, hooded monks, compelling video projections and an evocative score by composer and violinist Lev Ljova Zhurbin. Using the idiosyncratic movement of her virtuoso dancers, Barton creates a psychological portrait riveting with humor, sadness, zaniness and unpredictability. Join us and discover this new bright light for yourself!

Mummenschanz

DEC 16

THUR 7:30 PM

DEC 17* DEC 18 FRI 8 PM

Zellerbach Theatre

SAT 2 PM & 8 PM

A special non-subscription Dance Celebration event Mummenschanz has been enchanting audiences of all ages for 35 years with its clever, comic and bizarre world filled with strange creatures, amusing situations, astounding colors and imaginative shapes. Its newest show 3 X 11 (a 33-year retrospective of Mummenschanz) is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays if you’re looking for a unique alternative to The Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol. Using ordinary materials such as toilet paper, white sheets, foam and recycled junk that morph into giant balloons, huge slinkies, gargantuan potato heads and accordion-pleated tubes, this beloved Swiss company tells incredible stories that transcend the need for words. These invisible masters of movement (founding members Bernie Schürch, Floriana Frassetto with Raffaella Mattioli and Pietro Montandon) have revolutionized theatre using mime, acting, dance and magic, and according to the Boston Herald, they create their “own comic universe – a place of constant wonder and ingenuity.” It’s perfect for the whole family and will surely delight both adults and children alike! *Join us for a Pre- or Post-show Chat surrounding this performance.

idiosynCrazy productions FLATLAND 2010 (Dance-theatre)

Harold Prince Theatre

JAN 15 SAT 8 PM

FLATLAND 2010 is a physical theatre work that examines contemporary human (mis-)communication. This diverse cast of 11 athletic performers explores what happens to human relationships in a “flattened” world of abbreviation and oversimplification, where the sound bite supersedes substance and the instant message overpowers the intellectual one.  Directed by Jumatatu Poe and choreographed by Poe along with all the performers, FLATLAND 2010 is a reflective musing on the American Millenial generation. Join these 11 characters in their struggle for depth in two dimensions.

FEB 11

FRI 7:30 PM

FEB 12

Harold Prince Theatre

SAT 7:30 PM

Celebrate Chinese New Year with the Annenberg Center! Journey to the West is one of China’s Four Great Classical Novels and its most popular due to the antics of the main character, Monkey King.  So what is Monkey doing in America? Simply taking part in yet another Chinese production?  No—he is going to do his thing in the Endless Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania in a new production that will revolutionize and Americanize the use of contemporary shadow puppetry with 3-D masks and scenery and music by Chinese composer Liang Liang and American composer (and PA resident) Mary Knysh. The play remains faithful to the colorful and zany spirit of the original, but its biting satire will now be directed at American targets including politicians, health insurance, drug companies and sex. 

Nice People Theatre Company Have A Nice Life (Musical Theatre)

MAR 12

Harold Prince Theatre

SAT 8 PM

Following a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Nice People Theatre Company’s Have A Nice Life “A Therapeutic Musical” has been hailed by the Fringe Review as “a work of true brilliance.” Joined by the British musical director and accompanist, Tom Brady, it’s the story of seven eccentric characters’ lives as they come together for better or for worse during a 90-minute weekly group therapy session. Have a Nice Life is a sharp-witted musical comedy about the barriers we put up and what happens when they come crashing down.

The By Local Series is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and The Wallace Foundation.
