2019 Fall Season of Live & About – 10th Season
A Journey in Musical Languages across the Spectrum of Music-Theatre
Through Performance & Conversation
Alliance for New Music-Theatre is pleased to announce our 2019 Fall season (our 10th Season) of “Live & About”. We have put together a very energetic and eclectic program for this Fall season with outings to three different productions in the DC area. Plus a Holiday Salon party in December.
“Live & About”. is an outreach and community engagement series representing different Washington, DC theatre companies and shows across the spectrum of music-theatre.
Participants will enjoy the experience of attending performances as a group, expanding their appetites and critical appreciation for new forms, and supporting a variety of large and smaller music-theatre companies in our nation’s capital. After each show, they will have the opportunity to deepen their experience by engaging with other group members in an informal gathering and sharing in discussions to understand the deeper intentions of the show’s creators.
We have arranged the Fall Season on a subscription basis with our group discounts. Hope you are planning to join us for all performances this season. For details and subscription pricing contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

A passionate new musical with Middle Eastern Melodies
From an extraordinary collaboration of international artists comes Love Sick, the critically-acclaimed new musical that fuses a thrilling original score, Middle-Eastern harmonics, dazzling choreography, and an inspired story of passion and awakening. Based on the Song of Songs, Love Sick tells the story a young wife in a lifeless marriage who discovers she has a secret admirer. Intrigued, she begins a mysterious and dizzying journey of sexual and personal empowerment. Love Sick’s creative team includes Olivier and Tony Award nominee Christopher Renshaw, internationally-acclaimed Israeli actress/writer Ofra Daniel, and celebrated Palestinian musician Ali Paris.
“Extraordinary…lush…full of surprises”—San Francisco Chronicle
Synetic Theater, 1800 S Bell St, Arlington VA
Thursday, October 17 at 8:00 pm
Sunday, October 20 at 2:00 pm
The Tempest is one of Synetic’s best wordless Shakespeare's. A Splashy Remount of a Synetic Smash.
Synetic’s legendary, cinematic adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest returns – with the famed water-filled stage and visual poetry that made the original production an unforgettable sensation when it premiered in 2013. When the magical and powerful Prospero creates a sea storm, he gets more than he bargained for as romantic drama, deception, and quests for vengeance emerge from the depths. Spirits, monsters, witches, drunken fools, and lithe lovers contort and cavort with passion and bravado in one of Shakespeare’s most high-stakes and irreverent comedies.
Havel’s Protest & Vaněk Unleashed
Alliance for New Music Theatre
In Dupont Underground, 19 Dupont Circle NW
Sunday, November 10 at 7 pm (with Havel Bio Film at 5 pm)
Wednesday, November 13 at 8 pm
30 years ago, the Velvet Revolution was developed and coordinated by a playwright and theater-maker from a theater building in central Prague. In the years that followed, Czech leaders and intellectuals have maintained a belief in the role of the arts and artists to advocate for human rights and encourage democratic dialogue around the world. Václav Havel’s voice remains a beacon of how one “little man” can and indeed has the responsibility to stand up to tyranny.
In November, as part of the Czech Embassy’s Mutual Inspirations Festival, Havel’s Protest will be presented on a double bill with the company’s original music-theatre work, Vaněk Unleashed, as a response and tribute to Havel’s creation of his much-beloved doppelganger character.
