The Alternative Arts Collective (TAAC) is proud to produce John Guare’s wildly funny black comedy, The House of Blue Leaves. It tells the story of Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper by day and a songwriter with visions of glory by night. Artie dreams of escaping his humdrum life in Queens, and making it big writing songs for the movies in Hollywood. The story unfolds on the historic day in 1965 when Pope Paul VI visited New York to meet with President Lyndon B. Johnson and to celebrate a nighttime Mass of Peace at Yankee Stadium. The Vietnam War was about to begin in earnest, rock music was taking the place of rock and roll, and the times “they were a’changin.” Throw into the mix Artie’s love interest, a kid in the army, a little lunacy, and a trio of nuns; and well, you get the idea.

Join two true masters of American home-grown music, Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur in rare duo appearance. Famed 1960s folk revival heroes, the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, parlayed their good-time music and country blues at venues from Cambridge coffeehouses to the Newport Folk Festival to the psychedelic ballrooms of San Francisco, where they shared billing with the likes of Big Brother and the Holding Company and the Doors. Jim led the band on guitar and vocals, shaping its good-humored mix of old-time folk, jazz, blues, and 1920s and '30s "whoopie music." As a founding member and lead singer of two seminal groups, The Jim Kweskin Jug Band and Paul Butterfield's Better Days, Geoff Muldaur earned a place in American musical history. Known for making traditional gospel, folk, and blues styles his own, Geoff has also continued to write music for documentary film and horn arrangements (recently for B.B. King and Linda Thompson), and is a frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion. [less-]

The Alternative Arts Collective (TAAC) is proud to produce John Guare’s wildly funny black comedy, The House of Blue Leaves. It tells the story of Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper by day and a songwriter with visions of glory by night. Artie dreams of escaping his humdrum life in Queens, and making it big writing songs for the movies in Hollywood. The story unfolds on the historic day in 1965 when Pope Paul VI visited New York to meet with President Lyndon B. Johnson and to celebrate a nighttime Mass of Peace at Yankee Stadium. The Vietnam War was about to begin in earnest, rock music was taking the place of rock and roll, and the times “they were a’changin.” Throw into the mix Artie’s love interest, a kid in the army, a little lunacy, and a trio of nuns; and well, you get the idea.

His hysterical, behind-the-scenes anecdotes are a holiday treat for adults, mercilessly cutting through the sticky-sweetness of Christmas to illuminate the insanity of the holidays, and the resilience of the human spirit.

Join two true masters of American home-grown music, Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur in rare duo appearance. Famed 1960s folk revival heroes, the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, parlayed their good-time music and country blues at venues from Cambridge coffeehouses to the Newport Folk Festival to the psychedelic ballrooms of San Francisco, where they shared billing with the likes of Big Brother and the Holding Company and the Doors. Jim led the band on guitar and vocals, shaping its good-humored mix of old-time folk, jazz, blues, and 1920s and '30s "whoopie music." As a founding member and lead singer of two seminal groups, The Jim Kweskin Jug Band and Paul Butterfield's Better Days, Geoff Muldaur earned a place in American musical history. Known for making traditional gospel, folk, and blues styles his own, Geoff has also continued to write music for documentary film and horn arrangements (recently for B.B. King and Linda Thompson), and is a frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion. [less-]
