Sundance Institute Theatre Lab

Saturday, December 7, 2013, 8pm
Club B-10
$12 advance / $16 day of / $10 students



The renowned Sundance Institute Theatre Program returns to MASS MoCA with its fall musical and ensemble Theatre Lab. Sharing MASS MoCAís mission to foster the production of new art, the Lab offers workshop support to playwrights, directors, composers, and librettists. Led by Artistic Director Philip Himberg and Producing Director Christopher Hibma, the extended residency provides guidance in the development of new works for the stage. The residency culminates with a work-in-progress public showing of First Daughter Suite, a new work by Tony Award-nominated composer and lyricist Michael John LaChiusa, directed by Kirsten Sanderson.

First Daughter Suite is part of a cycle of musical plays that began with First Lady Suite (1992). A fantasia based on historical characters and real events, First Daughter Suite explores the complex dynamic between mothers and daughters, as experienced by the women and children closest to the President of the United States. Despite the rarefied environment of the White House and accompanying trials of the presidency, each faces obstacles that are common to us all.

Additional projects participating in the Lab are Madwoman in the Volvo (written and performed by Sandra Tsing Loh and directed by Lisa Peterson) and the Fiasco Theaterís untitled project. Artists-in-Residence at the Lab are Byron Au Yong and Aaron Jafferis, Fellows of Sundance Instituteís Time Warner Fellowship Program.
