Students of Tony Winner Betty Buckley Will Offer Story Songs IV, Including Works by Jason Robert Brown
22 May 2014
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and Tony Award winner Betty Buckley will present Story Songs IV, a benefit concert featuring participants of Buckley's Spring Song Interpretation Workshop, June 3 at 7:30 PM at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
Throughout the past few months award-winning actress Buckley has assisted aspiring artists, educators and experienced performers in the craft of singing, acting and storytelling, culminating in this concert.
Tony-winning composer-lyricist Jason Robert Brown, recently represented on Broadway with the new musical The Bridges of Madison County, was a guest lecturer at Buckley’s Workshop. His music will be featured in Story Songs IV, which includes songs from classic and contemporary Broadway shows.
Featured performers include Kristi Dodge, Caroline Dubberly, Kate Dunn, Marjorie Hayes, Tamara Hayes, Terri Lynn Kavanaugh, Zane Lynch, Michael McCalip, Lara Notarianni, Jeni Roller and Michael Salvador. Musical director and pianist is Aimee Bozarth.
A portion of the proceeds of the concert will benefit the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
