Free Performance April 18, Arts Council of Princeton

The tough work of environmentalism needs to be balanced with joy and merrimentalism!

Join in some improbable fun on Wednesday, April 18, 7pm, with Climate Cabaret's "Earth Dialogues" at the Arts Council of Princeton's Solley Theater. 

In Climate Cabaret, theater and music combine to find comedy, poignancy and beauty in the greatest challenge of our time: our relationship to Earth. A stubbornly abstract subject is brought home to our bodies and our hearts. Molecules become characters; carbon becomes a seductive renaissance atom with issues. Hamlet drops in to ask the existential question, "To act, or not to act?" Witness a man's tragicomic breakup with his car. Mock drug ads for Lyatol and Gasoline list troubling side-effects. Classic songs are "climate-adapted" to speak of human folly and love for a planet. Witness this unique, Princeton-born production, featuring the musical and theatrical creations of writer/composer Stephen Hiltner.

Performers: Cheryl Jones, Basha Parmet, Kitty Getlik, Fred Dennehy, and the Sustainable Jazz duo of actor/saxophonist Steve Hiltner, and pianist extraordinaire Phil Orr.

This performance is part of the Arts Council of Princeton’s Community Stage Series.

Program is free, but advance registration is recommended. For more information, please call 609.924.8777.
