Tom Griesgraber (O2 Performance Studio)

September 13

Until you’ve seen it performed live, the music of Chapman Stick player Tom Griesgraber sounds too big to be real. There are acoustic guitar or piano-like moments, funk rock bass lines, ambient synth and soundscape textures, rock guitar leads, jazz solos and even small bits of percussion sometimes all happening simultaneously. To the uninitiated listener it sounds like an ensemble, but to those who have seem him live, it is the magic of a unique virtuoso. Read more »

Paragon Springs

September 28- October 7

by Steven Dietz (based on Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People)

The ensuing political gamesmanship pits truth against power, husband against wife, brother against brother. Can the town survive?
