CPI AND THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF DANCE PRESENT

THE TALL BOY 

Written by Simon Bent / Based on the short story "The Lost" by Kay Boyle

CPI presents famed actress Tandy Cronyn’s production of this compelling WWII drama that explores the timely discussion of refugees and racism. Based on Kay Boyle’s short story, The Lost, THE TALL BOY is set in Germany in the aftermath of World War II, and compellingly examines the predicament of three European orphans. Swept up by American Army units towards the end of the war, the boys see their GI buddies as family and are determined to return with them to the United States. In 1946 the U.S. isn’t accepting many refugees, and only one boy has been befriended by a soldier willing to adopt him. But that soldier happens to be black. Join us as Tandy (daughter of the legendary theatrical couple Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn) brings her dramatic one woman show to the Riggi Theater.

Oct. 21 at 7:30pm & Oct. 22 at 2pm / Tickets: $25 Adults & $15 Students

From Asia, Old Europe, the Middle East, and First Nations America are classic tales handed down by our neighbors to the North. Sure, there are the stereotypical princesses in need of saving and malevolent Sultans, but there are also cunning, resourceful, and independent-minded young people. We depend on them in the original stories and modern makeovers we propose in order to save the day. Out of the ashes of olden times a brand new play, The Golden Phoenix and More French-Canadian Fairy Tales, will rise.


SPECIAL THEATER WORKSHOP OPPORTUNITY

Young participants will challenge themselves in an environment accessible to ages 8 and up;  we all have important opinions of right and wrong, strength and weakness, love and hate and most of life that lies somewhere in between. The input of all the artists—on stage and off—is not just suggested, but rather the building blocks of this project. The coordinators of the program are looking forward to demonstrating to our audiences the astonishing capacity of our youth.

CPI still has a few openings for this special children's program. If your child is interested please call 518-584-7780 for more details. Ages 10 - 14 welcome, no fee to participate. Starts July 5th!

AFTER A SUCCESSFUL OFF-BROADWAY RUN AT 59E59 THEATERS IN NYC, CPI IS PROUD TO TRAVEL TO BARRINGTON STAGE FOR A SPECIAL LIMITED RUN OF KUNSTLER, A NEW PLAY BY JEFFREY SWEET, STARRING BROADWAY'S JEFF McCARTHY, AND DIRECTED BY MEAGEN FAY!

 

Join CPI at Barrington Stage in the Berkshires for Kunstler, for the new play by Jeffrey Sweet. See the production that the Boston Globe hailed as one of the top three not-to-be missed theater events in New England this summer. Starring Broadway's Jeff McCarthy and directed by Meagen Fay.  


MAY 18 - JUNE 10
AT BARRINGTON STAGE COMPANY
30 UNION STREET
PITTSFIELD, MA 01201

Broadway star Jeff McCarthy brings William Kunstler back to life in Jeffrey Sweet's fascinating play, which revisits Kunstler's timely message of Constitutional civil rights under rule of law in an exciting theatrical event.

In Jeffrey Sweet’s play, Kunstler says, “My job starts when I see the forces of government cloaking itself in the garb of legality and going after someone who is at a particular disadvantage—whether it’s because of race or some existing prejudice or stereotype—it’s my impulse to try to level the playing field.” Kunstler’s often unpopular views made him the target of vicious criticism, but he changed the American legal system anyway.
