New Line continues its 26th season with a rarely produced gem from the legendary team of John Kander and Fred Ebb, who have brought us Cabaret, Chicago, Kiss of the Spider Woman (all of which New Line has produced), The Scottsboro Boys, The Visit, Woman of the Year, The Act, etc., and from bookwriter Joseph Stein (Fiddler on the Roof, The Baker’s Wife, Rags). ZORBA is a rowdy, high-energy musical, based on the famous 1946 novel Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis, its 1964 film version, and letters that Kander and Ebb found from the real-life Zorba. Originally conceived and directed in 1968 by the legendary Harold Prince, the story opens in a bouzouki parlor in Greece where a group has gathered to tell stories. They introduce us to Zorba, his philosophy of living life to the fullest, and a very dramatic, emotional, tragic, but life affirming encounter with a young man and with love.

Hail Cassius Neptune fuzes art rock with R&B into a unique sound channeling Erykah Badu and Hiatus Kaiyote. Fronted by Kylie Jo and Wilson Stern, their music weaves a danceable tapestry for the mind, body & soul. The band has been compared to acts across the gamut from The Mars Volta and Primus to Frank Zappa and D'Angelo. Kylie Jo Stern's vocals bring together Lauryn Hill's sense of soul with Fiona Apple's sense of humor.

Organized by artist Jenna Bauer, founder of the Colorbridge Arts Collective, designers of socially informed visual arts education curricula, this exhibit uses the artist’s color wheel as a metaphor to encourage children to contemplate our similarities and differences as human beings. In collaboration with their classroom teachers and Colorbridge art educators, students created thought-provoking stories based on this theme, and also learned a wide variety of studio art-based illustration tactics including drawing and collage techniques, color theory and bookbinding. This exhibit presents over 50 books written and illustrated by students from Word of Life School, St. Cecilia School, Kennard Classical Junior Academy and a group of homeschooled children.

Student and teacher workshops available: Call Rebecca Gunter at 314-533-9900 x18 for information.

This exhibit presents a group of dynamic photographs by Ron Anderson, Jessica Hentoff, Susan Pittman and others that celebrate the work of St. Louis’s own social circus, Circus Harmony.

The exhibition is made possible in part by Nina Needleman.

Performance: Friday, March 3, 2017, 6 p.m.
