A Young Readers’ Event Presented by the Reading Garden Event Series Newbery Medalist and bestselling author of the Animorphs series and “The One and Only Ivan,” Katherine Applegate presents a funny, deep, and nuanced story from a completely unexpected point of view. Red is an oak tree who is many rings old and the neighborhood "wishtree"—people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches. Along with her crow friend Bongo and other animals who seek refuge in Red's hollows, this "wishtree" watches over the neighborhood. When new family moves in, not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experiences as a wishtree are more important than ever.
In the solo exhibition "American Visions," artist Daniel Stumeier brings meticulously rendered drawings of country stars (and one art critic) into a white cube gallery setting. In doing so, he creates a conversation between “underclass” and “asthete” – squaring off the politics of rebellion against art world pretensions. The questions asked by this work are rather painful and yet so pertinent. For, what is white America’s vision of itself? Stumeier’s response is not without humor. In Stumeier's own words, "This exhibition features intimately-scaled, drawn portraits of country pop singers and other figures rendered from cassettes, book covers, and online sources. These works are a continued examination of American popular culture—specifically that of the Midwest." This imagery reflects Stumeier's own experiences growing up in rural Illinois, his current residence in St. Louis, and contemplation of these experiences within the larger context of America’s current attitudes toward class and race."This event is free and open to the public

“In the house of Borden there’s a lock on every door,In every room a prisoner of a long, silent war.Let us take you to an August back in 1892,When all hell broke looseIn the house of Borden…”– Lizzie
It’s a sweltering August in 1892, in Fall River, Massachusetts. And Lizzie’s had enough.A prominent businessman and his wife are brutally axed to death in their home. Their daughter Lizzie Borden is the prime suspect. Lizzie’s trial is a coast-to-coast media sensation, and her story becomes an American legend. LIZZIE is ferocious, powerful musical theatre as rock concert, four women and a six-piece rock band, chock full of rage, sex, betrayal, and bloody murder, an American mythology set to a blistering rock score, a radically new American musical with a sound owing less to Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber than to Bikini Kill, the Runaways, and Heart. The show has music by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer and Alan Stevens Hewitt, lyrics by Cheslik-DeMeyer and Tim Maner, book and additional music by Maner, and additional lyrics by Hewitt.
The New York Times called the show “a gothic rock ritual with a ‘riotgirl’ attitude … an eerie hybrid of rock club and a turn-of-the-century New England parlor. . . Presented with wall-rattling glee…deliciously watchable.”
The Village Voice talked about the show’s “lush tunes which retch sex, rage, heat, misanthropy, and incest … Surreal glee and gallows humor … Finally, a rock musical you’d wanna mosh to.”
TimeOutNY called it “a fetching, brawny rock musical.”
Show Business Weekly said, “We came for splattered red, for madness and mayhem, and Lizzie more than delivers.”
The cast of New Line’s Lizzie includes Anna Skidis as Lizzie, Kimi Short as Bridget, Larissa White as Alice, and Marcy Wiegert as Emma. The show will be directed by Mike Dowdy-Windsor, with music direction by Sarah Nelson, scenic and lighting design by Rob Lippert, costume design by Sarah Porter, and sound design by Elli Castonguay.Lizzie contains adult language and content.For more information, visit the New Line Theatre website.
