Flight of Obscurity XI

by Nathaniel Foley

Exhibit Dates: June 15 – July 10, 2017

Sculptures consisting of cones integrated with spires held together under tension, supported by utilitarian containers. This fragile relationship of forms exposes the delicate balance between grace and imminent danger, like the fleeting ballet of courting birds or hostile dogfight between foes. Referring to aeronautical form, the sculptures communicate tension and dance in direct opposition to fundamental forces.

Artist Talk: 6 p.m.

Reception & Art Walk: Fri, June 23, 2017 5:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Plaza Suite - Live Theatre at Stage Too!

 
Plaza Suite by Neil Simon:   Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, "I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!"

Bus Stop - Live Theatre at Stage Too!

 
Bus Stop by William Inge is one of four consecutive Broadway hits of the 1950’s which were rapidly made into equally successful films, making Inge the decade’s star dramatist.   The action of this endearing romantic comedy takes place during a howling snowstorm in a cheerful street-corner restaurant adjacent to a bus stop in a small town about thirty miles west of Kansas City.  Not unlike Chaucer’s pilgrims to Canterbury, these travelers (a nightclub chanteuse in a sparkling gown and a seedy fur-trimmed jacket, a twenty-one-year-old headstrong cowboy, his kindly mentor ranchman,  a middle-age scholar coming to terms with himself) wait out the storm with the free spirited owner of the diner, the young waitress who gets her first taste of romance, the local man’s man Sheriff and the always ready for action bus driver.  Together this unlikely band learns much from the themes in Inge’s visionary play regarding sex and love as  the world of the 1960’s encroaches.

Starlight Train Ride

Departing during the cooler temperatures of late afternoon and traveling through sunset, twilight and starlight, the Verde Canyon Railroad’s popular Summer Starlight ride operates on select Saturday evenings May through September. Departing at 5:30 p.m. and returning at 9:30 p.m., the Starlight Ride serves up a wide ranging mix of light, color and shadow as the Canyon transforms into a moonlit dreamscape.

The romance of the rails is enhanced as daylight gives way to twilight.  The late evening return to the depot reveals neighboring Jerome romantically twinkling on Cleopatra Hill.

Urinetown - Live Theater at PCA

 A sidesplitting sendup of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms. 

Performed by the Teen Summer Stock Ensemble of Prescott Center for the Arts.

Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival 

Presents

 

The Merry Wives of Windsor

This “citizen comedy” is a lively portrait of Elizabethan England in which Shakespeare leaves the realm of royal intrigue and follows the laughable, if not always lovable, Sir John Falstaff off the battlefield and into a romantic fray. Sir John’s would-be lovers band together to give the scheming knight his comeuppance in a hilarious tale that anticipates the screwball comedy of 20th-century film but retains the Bard’s signature wit and sophistication. 

 

You’ll cheer aloud for the cheeky women of Windsor as they band together, and stick up for themselves, to find, reignite, and maintain their romances.

Macbeth.

Have you ever wondered what your future holds? Macbeth knows his. The Scottish soldier has his entire future laid at his feet by three mysterious women in the woods. He knows he will be Thane of Cawdor, and then King of Scotland. He also knows that his brother in arms, Banquo, not Macbeth and his wife, will father the heir to the Scottish throne. Macbeth is about Fate. In striving to command it, the young and ambitious Macbeth becomes the tyrant we all fear.

 

Join Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival this summer for a brisk, contemporary production of Shakespeare’s classic tale of ambition, love, and the supernatural.

Presents

A

All’s Well That Ends Well

All’s Well is a giddy charade of disguise, trickery, and lawful wickedness. Embark with us on the adventures of Helena, a witty young woman who must travel the mysterious path of love and navigate the beguiling people she encounters: the naive but courageous man she loves, three visionary women, and, of course, a fool (or two!). All’s Well That Ends Well will be directed by Christine Schmidle, Deputy Text Associate at Shakespeare’s Globe in London.

 

This fall, lovers and braggarts all will get more than they deserve, and if they can work together to end well — despite their best efforts to make a huge mess of things — so, perhaps, might we.
