ELizabeth Swados: The La MaMa Cantata
November 7 & 8
In honor of Ellen Stewart
The La MaMa Cantata is a theater music piece with actors, soloists and a large chorus. The words will be made up of quotes from Ellen Stewart over the last 50 years as well as stories about her and characters she encountered in her long miraculous journey of a life. It will reflect the joy, incredible humor and guts of our leading lady as well as her struggles and fights for survival.
Get ready for passion and spirit and a range of music that reflects La MaMa and Ellen Stewart herself. Nothing is predictable.
