One show closes, one show opens
Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! As the winds blew from North to South last night Stogie Kenyatta stood his ground and completed his final performance of The World is my Home – The Life of Paul Robeson. His audiences have all been very complementary of his performance and we at Shakespeare in Paradise thank him for his patience in dealing the weather challenges that we have undergone over the past three days.
As Stogie Kenyatta exits the stage, Alaudin Ullah makes his entrance with his one-man play Indio. This piece is the main feature of an evening that we are calling Horn of Plenty featuring Indio which will begin its three performance run tonight at 8:00pm at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. For the audience, the evening begins with a tour of the fifth National Art Exhibition. Wine will be served as performers entertain with sonnets and song during the tour. The audience will then take their seats to watch Indio.
There are also other productions happening this evening. Over at Zion Baptist Church there will be the third performance of God’s Trombones. This performance will feature Rev. Dr. Terrence G. Morrison as the guest preacher.
Over at The Hub, One Flesh will have its second showing, also starting at 8:00pm
Tickets for all three of these shows can be purchased at the Box Office which is at the Dundas Theatre. Anytime between 10:00am and 4:00pm you can collect you tickets or you can call 393-3728 or 394-7179 to reserve seats.
There are only five days remaining in the festival so don’t let these productions end without seeing them. We are still getting requests from people to bring back Woman Take Two because they missed it. We are sorry that they could not make it but unfortunately that production is not coming back so don’t miss the opportunity to see the remaining productions that are playing in the festival.
Watch this site tomorrow for information on our signature Shakespeare production A Midsummer Night’s Dream as it gets ready to open.
