Into The Woods

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed and Choreographed by Matthew Gardiner
Music Direction by Rick Edinger

Feb. 20-29

Sometimes people leave you
Halfway through the wood
Others may deceive you
You decide what’s good
You decide alone
But no one is alone

What would you do to reverse a curse? How far would you go to make a wish come true? Into the Woods weaves familiar stories into a new tale that reaches the heart of what it means to come of age and follow your own moral compass for the first time.

Memory Habit

Adapted and directed by Eben Hoffer
Feb.26- 29

I can’t stop remembering; I don’t know if I would be what I am if I weren’t remembering. But I don’t know what I’m remembering. It’s just a reflex, like the haphazard breathing of a lungfish. It’s just a memory habit.

In the 1980s, a group of children of Holocaust survivors started to recognize that they were experiencing, what essentially amounted to PTSD. Chemically, their stress responses were similar to those of their parents’,­­ which were themselves similar to those of combat veterans. How could this be so, when these children themselves had been saved from the trauma of Nazi violence?

Performed by an unreliable pair of narrators, Memory Habit is a dual solo about intergenerational trauma: forgotten history, emerging (epi)genetic science, and how cultures attempt to survive and heal in the face of persistent haunting. If we are created by our ghosts, how are we to survive them? Is anyone more than a sum of their inheritance? Who do we decide has the right to their pain?
