Letters To Zoey

Today’s podcast features a new United Solo artist! You may have noticed him sitting in front of the New York Public Library with a sign that says, “Meet The Author”. What is this about? We took a trip to find out about Garrett Buhl Robinson as he brings his voice from the streets to the stage with a musical twist in “Letters To Zoey”. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT LETTERS TO ZOEY

In the middle of the night, Weldon Keyes jumps on a coal train and leaps into his rite of passage. Wandering through the country, he composes letters and songs to his friend Zoey. Through his travels, he realizes what he felt was lacking in his life and what he desperately seeks to find, is what he left behind.

Lovely day for “A Walk In The Woods” with KEEN!

ABOUT A WALK IN THE WOODS

Lee Blessing’s drama – a finalist for the 1987 Pulitzer Prize – is an absorbing and revealing debate on the hope and futility of high-stakes politics. Two superpower arms negotiators — one a cynical Russian veteran and the other an idealistic American newcomer — meet informally in the woods after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table. A Walk in the Woods is a surprisingly humorous and timely story of the politics that divide us and the humanity that unites us.

Featuring: Kathleen Chalfant and Paul Niebanck

United Solo™ is a New York-based company dedicated to the genre of one-person performance. Our goal is to present solo pieces, both local and international; discover original scripts; bring creators together; exchange perspectives; assemble performers, companies, and institutions, as well as other activities related to solo performance. We believe the single person on stage gives us the opportunity to connect and focus on the uniqueness of human being. Through the exploration of existential themes, solo artists reflect upon political, sexual, economical, religious, and social diversity. This diversity unites us all in a constellation of unique solos.

Keen Company

ABOUT KEEN COMPANY

From three-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky (Network, Marty and The Hospital) comes MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, a comedy about a May-December romance in 1950’s New York City. When an older Jewish widower and a young gentile bride of another man meet and fall in love, their relationship throws their disapproving families into a tizzy. This long-lost gem from “the poet laureate of the romantically underprivileged” (Theatre Arts) explores “average people…fumbling for the comfort of sheer companionship.” (N.Y. Times).
Now in our 14th season, Keen Company has produced 31 full-length plays and one musical. We have been honored with seven Drama Desk Nominations and one Drama Desk Award, two Obie Awards, a 2005 Special Drama Desk Award “for moving and enlightening audiences with plays that build upon our theatrical heritage,” a Drama League nomination, and a 2008 Obie Grant. Six of our productions have transferred to other theatres.
