Looking Ahead

Our 2015-2016 season is underway! We had a wonderful Pages from the American Songbook concert on November 19th. Thanks to Matt, Charles, Ben, Seph, Gillian, Glenn and Chelsea for putting together such a polished and entertaining evening! Also thanks to everyone who came out to The Players on the rainy evening! A special shout out to the staff that attended from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; NYC DCA has again provided a grant toward our concert series this season. We have a couple more concerts planned for this season under our American Songbook theme; check back soon for dates and info.

Save the dates! Our production of Jerome Kern’s Sally will be May 6-8, 2016 at Theatre 80 (80 St. Mark’s Place, NY, NY 10003.) Originally opening in 1920 at the New Amsterdam Theater, with a movie produced in 1929, the show contains the hit "Look for the Silver Lining”. We can’t wait to see you there. Check back here soon for time and ticket information.

Over the last two years, LOONY also has been very successful fundraising in order to increase the quality of our offerings and to be able to record and preserve rarely heard gems of early musicals and operetta. Since the beginning of 2014, LOONY has raised over $70,000 in grants and contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations in order to Bring Light Opera Out of the Dark. We are actively seeking to continue that success. If you would like to make a contribution, follow this link to learn how.

Gritty, politically charged, and psychologically fraught, the music of Kurt Weill remains as potent and sharp as when it was written over 60 years ago. “Kurt Weill on Broadway” explores the canon of the German composer’s extensive output, including Broadway favorite Threepenny Opera, which has been revived every decade since its premiere, Lady in the Dark, Street Scene, One Touch of Venus, among others. Weill’s music represents the finest intersection of the classical and pop worlds. Come hear the music that has influenced generations of composers sung by some of the finest singers in New York, including Broadway veteran and Feinstein’s/54 Below favorite, Mary Testa.
