The Collegiate Chorale Presents
The Road of Promise
Wednesday May 6th. 8PM
Thursday May 7th. 7pm.
Carnegie Hall - Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage


The Collegiate Chorale concludes its 2014-2015 season with the US Premiere of Kurt Weill's The Road of Promise on May 6, 2015 at 8pm and May 7, 2015 at 7pm at Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall, 881 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10019.

For more information, visit http://collegiatechorale.org/performances/the-road-of-promise.

The Road of Promise is a new concert adaptation of Kurt Weill and Franz Werfel's epic 1937 stage spectacle, The Eternal Road, led by Tony Award-winning conductor/director Ted Sperling and featuring a cast of world-renowned singers and a 200-voice chorus and symphony orchestra. Like the original stage work, The Road of Promise combines a story about a synagogue under threat of persecution with defining stories from the Old Testament. As the congregation awaits their fate, a 13-year old boy appears who knows nothing of his Jewish heritage or faith. The Rabbi enlightens him and gives the community strength by recounting the stories of Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Miriam, Moses, Ruth, Isaiah, and more, all of which come alive through Weill's magnificent musical score. The young boy listens to the stories unfold and emerges as the new hope for his people. The concert will feature Anthony Dean Griffey, Mark Delavan, Philip Cutlip, AJ Glueckert, and Lotte Lenya Competition Finalists/Winners Lauren Michelle, Megan Marino, and Justin Hopkins, with Conductor/Director Ted Sperling and Orchestra of St. Luke's.

The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley
Sunday May 17th. 2PM
Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College concludes its Target Storybook Series with Dallas Children's Theater's production of The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley on Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 2pm. Based on the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown, this whirlwind musical adventure tells the story of Stanley Lambchop - the ultimate exchange student - as he travels the globe and learns that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, Jeff Brown's beloved children's book, Flat Stanley, was written in 1964 and has become a literary and pop cultural phenomenon. Following in its footsteps, the musical adaptation, first published in 2008, has received national critical acclaim. "What I love about the show are all the teachable moments that don't feel like lessons," says guest director Michael Serrecchia, who returns to Dallas Children's Theater following his success with the main-stage production of Flat Stanley. "It's a fun, Broadway-style musical comedy about the value of being different and the importance of family." Thwarting a robbery at the Louvre Museum in Paris and surfing off the coast of Hawaii along the way, Stanley's adventures from Hollywood to France to Honolulu and beyond comes to life with the scenic designer Bob Lavallee's colorful designs.

Tickets are $9 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm).
