Bestselling author James Rollins combines historical mystery and scientific exploration in his latest thrilling Sigma Force adventure. A construction project unearths a cache of bones preserved in amber and buried more than a century ago by a cabal of scientists safeguarding a wonder like no other: the very secret of life after death. But this prize is linked to a horror that has remained dormant in the marrow of those bones—and has now been freed again to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world. From a crystalline lab atop Mount Fuji to a verdant island teeming with the “dark matter of life,” Sigma Force must unlock a deadly mystery that winds back eons.

https://aqueousband.com/

Tearing out of Buffalo NY, rock/groove powerhouse Aqueous has built a name for themselves nationally, following years of touring and high profile sets at festivals like Summer Camp, Peach Festival, Moe.Down, Catskill Chill, The Frendly Gathering, and countless others. Aqueous has built a reputation for bringing high energy and tireless effort to their craft, and fans rave about the uniqueness and power behind every performance. Featured as one of Relix Magazine's "On The Verge" artists and having shared the stage with the likes of Umphrey's McGee, Lotus, Papadosio & more, there seems no limit to the quartet's journey to the top.

With three studio albums under their belts, and their critically acclaimed live collection "Live Nugs," Aqueous is as strong in composing as they are at communicating and improvising during their shows. Their onstage persona is infectious and undeniable; their lifelong friendship stands as a testament to the tightness of the music. While the band is relatively young, they are polished -- check them out as soon as you can, and discover firsthand what the buzz is all about.

Presented in partnership with the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center, a department of Jewish Federation of St. Louis
With the support of Dr. Arthur Gale and Family

Despite the outpouring of books, movies, and memorials devoted to the Holocaust, a coherent explanation of why such ghastly carnage erupted from the heart of civilized Europe still seems elusive more than seventy years later. While responding to the questions he has been most frequently asked by students over the decades, world-renowned Holocaust historian and professor Peter Hayes brings a wealth of scholarly research and experience to bear on conventional, popular views of the history. “Why?” is an authoritative, groundbreaking exploration of the origins of one of the most tragic events in human history.

Max & Louie Productions
presents
“Souvenir:
a fantasia on the life of Florence Foster Jenkins”
December 14 – 31, 2017
Various Dates & Times – see date information
$20 – Preview (Dec. 14)
$45 – General Admission
$35 Students & Seniors (65+)
Special New Year’s Eve Performance + Celebration (TBA)
INFAMOUS. BIZARRE. INCOMPREHENSIBLE. EXTRAORDINARY.
Max & Louie Productions is thrilled to present the Broadway hit comedy “Souvenir,” an affectionate portrait of tone-deaf opera diva Florence Foster Jenkins.
Florence Foster Jenkins was a real-life socialite who set elite eardrums in Manhattan a-trembling in a series of notorious private concerts during the 1930s and 1940s culminating in a single sold-out performance at Carnegie Hall. Her flamboyant costumes and uninhibited love of music was as much her trademark as her inability to sing on key. Music historian Steven Pile said, “No one before or since has succeeded in liberating themselves quite so completely from the shackles of musical notation.”
Souvenir, by turn hilarious and poignant, tells Jenkins story through the clear but loving eyes of her long-time accompanist Cosme McMoon. It is the changing perspective on his employer, whom we first meet when he interviews for a job with her, that gives the play its breadth and depth. The portrait of that relationship is the heart of the piece.
“I admire this woman,” said Stellie Siteman, artistic director of Max & Louie Productions. “She is famous for having said: ‘People may say I can’t sing, but no one can ever say I didn’t sing.’ That spirit, that irrepressible urge to express oneself, despite one’s abilities or lack thereof, beguiles the hopeful artist that lives in us all.”
Souvenir will star Debby Lennon in the title role, and Paul Cereghino as her pianist, Cosme McMoon. “This is Debby Lennon as you’ve never heard her before,” said Siteman. “It takes a true musician to replicate such awful singing!”
Get to know this epic musical odd couple in Souvenir the perfect gift for the holidays.
National Reviews:
“Hilarious and deeply touching…a loony triumph!” – NY Daily News
“A beguiling comic jewel with a heart.” – Variety
“…..an unexpectedly gentle and affecting comedy.” – The New York Times
“….So go laugh to your heart’s content. There weren’t many voices as bad as Jenkins’. There aren’t many theatrical experiences as good as Souvenir.” – The Boston Globe
“….a memorable illustration of the real limits of self-perception, and of the purely theatrical
