Uptown Players "A Chorus Line"
A Chorus Line is a celebration of those unsung heroes of American musical theater as it takes the audience through the final grueling audition for a new Broadway musical. A Chorus Line provides a glimpse into the personalities of the performers and the choreographer as they describe the events that have shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers. An unprecedented box office and critical hit, A Chorus Line won nine Tony Awards in addition to the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Feb 10 at 7:30PM Orchestra of New Spain “Francisco Courcelle's Achilles in Skyros”
The modern premiere of the 1744 three act ‘opera seria’ focuses on the early life adventure of this emblematic classic hero as described by the celebrated librettist Pietro Metastasio. Warned by a prophesy of his early death in the Trojan wars, Achilles' mother disguises him as a young woman in King Licomede’s harem on the island of Skyros. The plot centers on unraveling the intrigue of his identity, and on the sexual ambiguity of classic characters, where ‘castrati’ play the role of heroes. In the Spanish tradition, trouser roles were popular and the role of Achilles is given to a woman.
The artistic team includes Carla Lopez as Achilles, and cast members include Anna Popova, Jocelyn Henson and Chabely Rendon. Staging conceived by Gustavo Tambascio, choreography and assistant stage directing by Jaime Puente and costumes by Antonio Bartolo. Artistic Director and producer, Grover Wilkins 3rd.
