Artists Reception: Saturday, September 8, 5-8 pm

Artists Talk: Saturday, September 29, 2 pm

Artist Matt Pinney seeks to represent the systems that inform and classify how we communicate. He looks at the various elements that can shape our understanding of what we see: scientific reasoning, social media, politics, and the divine. These elements are intertwined and presented in the linear perspective of his canvas, allowing the viewer to form their own visual understanding.

"Our interpretation of historic narratives are deeply connected to the present. It is very difficult to decipher the complexity of our society or even my own place in it." --Matt Pinney

Singin' in the Rain

SinginLogo.jpg

The "Greatest Movie Musical of All Time" is faithfully and lovingly adapted for the stage. Singin' in the Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item but, behind the scenes, things aren't always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina's squeaky voice might be the end of her career in "talking pictures" without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. Filled with every memorable moment from the film and a downpour of unforgettable songs, Singin' in the Rain is a guaranteed hit!

2nd Star Productions will be presenting the musical at the Bowie Playhouse at Whitemarsh Park from September 21 - October 19, 2018. Performances will be as follows: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 3 pm, with the closing performance Saturday October 20th at 3 pm.

It's hard to think of anything more starkly reliable than the ticking of a clock, but time is an untrustworthy thing. It feels like ages since we've had a proper Pete Yorn LP to dissect, though it's been just five years. And it seems like only yesterday that we first heard musicforthemorningafter, which came out back in 2001. Yorn's brand new album and Capitol Records debut, ArrangingTime, plays with the elasticity of the years both in between and since — it's not only a culmination of the Los Angeles by way of New Jersey artist's adventurous latter-day projects, but a return to his original leaner methods.

Ginuwine

One of R&B's preeminent love men during the '90s heyday of hip-hop soul, Ginuwine first emerged in 1996 with the multi-platinum disc The Bachelor, produced with superstar beatmaker Timbaland. Featuring what one critic called "silky, seductive vocals [purring] beside Timbaland's jagged, hyperkinetic beats to create a uniquely edgy R&B sound," the album became an instant classic, with "Pony," the daring first single, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart late in 1996. Other standout cuts from the disc included "Tell Me Do U Wanna" and a blazing cover of Prince's "When Doves Cry." "When Timbaland and I did The Bachelor, that was one of the biggest moments in my life," Ginuwine recalls. "Not everyone has the opportunity to be so popular with their first release. Believe me, I know I was blessed."

Leonard Bernstein’s beautiful score for the Oscar-winning film On the Waterfront (1954) is his only work composed specifically for film. He created a powerful musical rendition of the drama, conveying the individual characters through music of unfailing appeal and expressiveness. Nobility, violence, corruption, tenderness, aspiration, frustration, resignation. The gamut of human emotions and dramatic situations from the film are fully realized in Bernstein’s score. Bernstein’s music was nominated for an Academy Award for "Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture" and has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the best film scores of all time.

Peter Noone

With his thick British accent and schoolboy good looks, singer Peter Noone carried Herman's Hermits through a string of '60s hits. From the swooning romanticism of "There's a Kind of Hush," to the bubblegum bop of "Into Something Good," to the quirky novelty of "I'm Henry VIII, I Am," The Best of Herman's Hermits gathers some of the Hermits' most memorable moments. Noone brought an undeniable charm to songs like "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter," regardless of the hokey lyrics. One of the more innocent bands of the British Invasion, Herman's Hermits made contemporary music seem safe with "Listen People," "Silhouettes," and "Wonderful World." "The End of the World" remains one of the all-time great breakup songs, made all the more maudlin by Noone's heartbroken delivery. --Steve Gdula (Amazon.com)
