Considered by many to be the perfect musical, the tale chronicles gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town. The authorities are breathing down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and as a result, Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. The story takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, with the memorable music from Frank Loesser.

With special guest AHI

Grammy-Award winning artist Patty Griffin has earned great acclaim for her powerful songwriting and vocals. Known for her stripped-down folk music style, she has proven herself a writer of uncommon perception and character-driven story-telling.

Griffin’s first two albums, Living With Ghosts and Flaming Red, are considered seminal albums in the singer-songwriter genre, while Children Running Through won Best Album and led to her being named Best Artist at the 2007 Americana Music Awards. She won the Grammy for Downtown Church, her 2010 gospel album. Very much in the traditions of American transcendental writer Ralph Waldo Emerson, and mystical poets like Rumi and Rainer Maria Rilke, Patty Griffin grounds her themes of love and mystery in the experience and rhythms of the everyday, the stuff of life. Her songs have inspired covers by many of today’s top artists including Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez and Bette Midler.

Her most recent album, Servant of Love, takes on big ideas, but does so in the vernacular of folk tales, blues cants and jazz gestures. Griffin’s characteristic expressive vocals - equal measures passion and poignancy - and her potent songwriting blur the lines between the personal, the spiritual and the political. These songs move and persuade while they dive deep.

Indie-soul singer-songwriter AHI (pronounced “eye”) has been compared to artists such as Ray LaMontagne, Richie Havens and Tracy Chapman, favoring passion over precision in his award-winning music.

“Bearing Witness: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement by Ernest C. Withers,” in the Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School features compelling black-and-white photographs taken between 1961 and 1968. The exhibit will run through May 16, 2018.

Withers was the only photographer who covered the entire trial of those charged with killing Emmett Till, a black teenager wrongly accused of whistling at a white woman, and Withers’ self-published photo pamphlet of the murder and trial helped spur the movement for equal rights. Over the course of his career, Withers accumulated a collection of an estimated 1.8 million photographs. His work appeared in publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, Jet, Ebony, Newsweek, Life, and Time; was collected in four books; and has been featured in touring exhibits and shows around the world. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., currently displays more than 30 of his images. Withers was elected to the Black Press Hall of Fame and received an honorary doctorate from the Massachusetts College of Art.

The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School, 755 South Price Road, St. Louis, MO, 63124. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays. The exhibit is free to the public. For more information, contact Donya Allison (Fine Arts) at 314/993-4045, ext. 229, dallison@jburroughs.org.
