Writers in Performance is a 12-week writing and performance workshop culminating in public presentations. Throughout the course of the workshop, ten talented actors, playwrights, poets and storytellers have explored writing exercises, theater games, improvisation, movement techniques, and ensemble work in a safe, creative environment. This season both the theme and title of the Writers in Performance show is ESCAPE. The performance will include newly written stories on this theme including escaping from life itself, a Thanksgiving Dinner turned sour, a Star escaping its place in the universe, and a young woman escaping the oppression of poverty. Writers in Performance participants are diverse by design; not only in ethnicity, but by age, and experience as well, mixing professionals with students. On December 6 & 7, 2013 at 8PM, the troupe will showcase the monologues and short scenes they have been crafting. We are proud to have members of the BMCC student community in the production (denoted below). Join us to experience this dynamic exchange between the written word and the art of performance! Tickets are a suggested donation of $10 and can be purchased in person at Ticketing Services in the lobby of 199 Chambers St. or by calling 212.220.1460.

More Between Heaven and Earth: Thomas Jefferson, Maria Cosway, and the Music and Philosophy of the EnlightenmentPresented by Salon/Sanctuary Concerts
Igniting in Revolutionary Paris and unfolding over a 40-year epistolary relationship, the Jefferson/ Cosway correspondence brims with exquisite music and eloquent prose, as the romance between two polymaths, the Statesman-Architect and the Musician- Painter, renders a vivid picture of musical life in 18th century France and America. The Jefferson/Cosway letters reveal his evolving views on the Separation of Church and State intermingled with her account of a stifling marriage and the limited options open to a woman of brilliance. With an original script composed entirely of selections from their writings, this play with music features repertoire that they heard,composed, played, and sent to each other, including works of Corelli, Hewitt, Sacchini, and Cosway herself. Please join us for this unique event and post- performance dinner at the historic Fraunces Tavern, where Jefferson served as the nation's first Secretary of State when the 1719 structure housed Washington's cabinet. Featuring Campbell Scott as Thomas Jefferson and Melissa Errico as Maria Cosway with Judith Hawking as the Narrator Jessica Gould, soprano & Tony Boutté, tenor Members of the Sebastians Jeffrey Grossman, harpsichord & leader Script and Stage Direction by Erica Gould Music Research by Jessica Gould
