STC: What is your approach to MAN OF LA MANCHA?

STC Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul: "Most people think MAN OF LA MANCHA is a musical retelling of DON QUIXOTE, but in fact it’s a story about the writer Cervantes. The story moves between the reality of a Spanish Inquisition prison and Cervantes’ conjuring of the Don Quixote story. My production will highlight the improvisational theatricality of turning everyday objects into props, and our surprisingly easy ability to believe in an imagined reality."

We asked our latest virtual poet-in-residence Simone-Marie Feignbaum what she thinks the climate of poetry is today. Here’s what she said,

“I think the internet has played a big part in our current poetry climate. There are so many people who would never have been published before, and can now post their work and reach audiences through blogs and Twitter and what have you, and it’s brought to light all this amazing talent. It means there’s a whole world of new voices and ideas out there, and that can only ever be a great thing.” 

We agree, and we’re so proud to host incredible, local poets like Simone on ASIDES ONLINE. Read her complete interview and two new poems here: http://goo.gl/fNwgFp

Enjoy your drink while experiencing dog & pony dc's SING ME A SONG, developed and performed by Wyckham Avery.

“If I've got a talent, it's for picking the right song at the right time for the right audience. And I can always get people to sing with me” - Pete Seeger.

How do we know what the right songs are for us? What stops us from singing and what songs reach inside and compel us to lift our voices? In SING ME A SONG, you are invited into a world encompassing songs that speak to several generations. A songstress invites audience to discover stories through song and sharing. Together they form a new community where all are free to sing without inhibition.
