Amazing Theater: Godspell the musical by Stephen Schwartz John-Michael Tebelak

An adaption of the musical, in a modern-day song-and-dance recreation of the Gospel of St. Matthew. Structured as a series of parables, which are then interspersed with a variety of modern music set primarily to lyrics from traditional hymns, with the passion of Christ briefly portrayed near the end of the performance. Godspell's message of love, acceptance, and tolerance transcends religion and is relevant to people of all beliefs. Directed by Cynthia Austin (MFA in acting PHD in theatre and member of Actors Equity).

Yale Spizzwinks(?) (a cappella)

The Spizzwinks(?) are America's first underclassman a cappella group. In an age before iPods or reality TV, when the only way to hear singing without instruments was in the shower, we showed the world that a bunch of college guys sporting sweet harmonies and a perplexing name was a winning combination. That's right - we liked a cappella before it was cool.

There are songwriters who sing their songs, and then there are songs who sing their writers. Alejandro Escovedo is one with his muse and his music. Over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, he has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation, a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives. Sometimes it takes the form of barely contained rage, the rock of punk amid kneeled feedback; sometimes it caresses and soothes, a whispery harmony.

Often encapsulated as the “Sound of Maui”, HAPA’s music evokes a place that many people at different times have referred to as heavenly. The overriding quality of their music is one of beauty and serenity, found in the majestic tones of the oli (chant), mele (song), the elegant movements of the sacred dance known as hula, and the exhilarating innovative sounds of virtuoso slack key guitar.

Todd Snider is on the happy back end of happy hour at a favorite East Nashville bar, talking about his new album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables. “This record doesn’t come from good times,” Snider says. “I wanted to sound the way I feel, which sometimes means sounding like a broken soul.” 

He might carry the mantle of “storyteller” – it’s what he titled his live record, after all – but Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables is anything but a nice, folk/Americana troubadour album.
