Greasy Luck! The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan

In celebration of the relaunching of the last surviving wooden whaleship, Lyman Allyn presents Greasy Luck! The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan.

The exhibition, which runs from September 21 through June 8, 2014, will look at how whaling—its myths and reality, risk and reward—left its mark on Connecticut and American identity.

In the 1800s, friends and family gathered on the docks to wish “greasy luck” for a successful voyage to departing whaleships.

 

To most people, whales were mysterious creatures.  Yet whaling was big business.

 

The thousands of barrels of oil the whalers brought home made ports like New London and Mystic some of the wealthiest places in the young nation, supporting a wide array of dockside occupations.

 

War Horse

A magnificent piece of theatre described by The London Times as “…so exhilarating that it makes you rejoice to be alive… Its sheer skill and invention are simply awe-inspiring.”
 

War Horse is a powerful and imaginative drama set at the outbreak of World War I in the English countryside and also the fields of battle in France and Germany. War Horse tells the story of young Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, which has been sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. In a tale that the Sunday Express said is “…both epic and intimate,” and “absolutely guaranteed to move the heart,” Joey is caught in enemy crossfire and ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no man’s land. Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship.
 

War Horse is filled with stirring music and songs, and at the heart of the show are life-sized puppets which bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on stage. “The puppetry is nothing short of miraculous,” according to The Times of London.

PERRY OBEE, “STACKED SPACE”

Perry Obee’s painting process is driven by the formal and material concerns of direct studio practice. As explorations of the abstract, representational and material properties of paint the underling content of his work is the situational context of everyday objects, people and place. In the “Stacked Space” series, precarious vertical and horizontal stacks of books and other objects appear to dissolve into shallow background planes. Modern still-life traditions are engaged here as composition; lighting and color are manipulated to derive a sense of self-referential order and harmony. These arranged views of Obee’s possessions double as autobiographical interactions of momentary space, artistic perspective and the material experience of his own place within them.

Obee is an adjunct art instructor at MxCC. He holds an MFA from Western Connecticut State University and a BFA from Ohio Wesleyan University. See more of his work at perryobee.carbonmade.com. Pegasus Gallery is located within the library on the first floor of Chapman Hall. Hours: Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., when classes are in session.

 

KAREN BARTONE, “TONDO ART: AN INTIMATE EXHIBITION OF MINIATURE PAINTINGS

Attend a reception on Wednesday February 5, 2014 from 5 to 7 p.m. and enjoy Karen Barton’s series of tondo paintings, which employ the traditional round panel format and the Italian Renaissance combination of oil paint and gold leaf. Picturesque subjects of reflected water lilies, trees, sky and rippled water dislocate viewer’s sense of specificity as they are composed within closely cropped peephole perspectives. The small scale and circular shapes here similarly reference telescopic and magnified slide compositions in as much as the direct landscapes they represent. Bartone lives in Clinton, Connecticut, and holds an MFA from Western Connecticut State University and a BFA from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. See more of her work at karenbartone.com. The Niche is located in Founders Hall across from the Registrar’s Office. Hours: Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to  4 p.m.

 

Lend Me A Tenor at Playhouse on Park

The Main Stage season at Playhouse on Park resumes with Lend Me A Tenor, a madcap tale of one unforgettable evening at a Cleveland opera house in 1934. When Tito Morelli, the scheduled star tenor, is unexpectedly sidelined, the manager of the theatre, Saunders, pushes his assistant into the spotlight to replace him. What follows is a hilarious case of mistaken identity. In what The London Times calls “a remarkable piece of theatre”, Lend Me A Tenor is sure to leave audiences belting out with laughter.

Leading the cast are Mike Boland as Saunders and Robert Wilde as Tito Morelli. Mr. Boland’s previous shows include Broadway’s Enemy of the People, the national tours of West Side Story and Twelve Angry Men, Hartford Stage’s To Kill A Mockingbird and Orphans Home Cycle, Theaterworks’ Exonerated, and Long Wharf’s She Stoops to Conquer, Wit, Mystery School, and A Question of Mercy. Mr. Wilde previously performed as the title roles of Ivoryton Playhouse’s Jekyll and Hyde and Che in River Valley Repertory’s Evita, and has also appeared in the hit film The Dark Knight. Also in the role of Maria Morelli is Ashley Ford, who returns after her successful run in Playhouse on Park’s Cabaret. Completing the cast are Jeff Gonzalez (Max), Lilly Wilton (Maggie), Donna Schilke (Julia), Katie Vincent (Diana), and Corrado Alicata (Bellhop).

Lend Me A Tenor runs January 22 through February 9, 2014. For information on days, times and tickets, visit www.playhouseonpark.org, or call 860-523-5900 x10.
