Theater 2020 Presents Two Holiday Events

November 26, 2012

They were a great success last year, so our Brooklyn Heights neighbors, David Fuller and Judith Jarosz of Theater 2020, are presenting holiday events on the next two weekends. Both will be happening at St. Charles Borromeo, 21 Sidney Place. The first, on this coming Sunday, December 2, starting at 3:00 p.m. will be A Merry Joyful Noise, featuring the group RPM:

The group features performers Mary Lou Barber, John Canary (& Piano), Paula Hoza, Luisa Tedoff & Tim Weiss (& Guitar), from the Broadway, Cabaret & Indie Theater community. Admission [suggested donation $20, no one will be turned away] includes an optional sing-a-long on some of the classics & a reception with the artists immediately following the concert. Great for the whole family.

The second event, on Saturday, December 8, also starting at 3:00 p.m., will be A Radio Christmas Carol, “Charles Dickens’ Christmas Classic Performed as a Radio Play complete with Foley Artist Sound Effects.” Again, admission is a suggested donation of $20, but no one will be turned away. For more information please visit the Theater 2020 website

It is a Truth Universally Acknowledged that Jane Austen is the Toast of Brooklyn this Week

October 3, 2012

We have previously noted Theater 2020′s partially staged reading, followed by a reception with the cast, of Lynn Marie Macy’s work in progress, Lady Susan or the Captive Heart, a Jane Austen Bodice Ripper, to be presented this Thursday evening, October 4 at St.Charles Borromeo Church, 21 Sidney Place, starting at 7:00 p.m. (suggested donation $25; reservations here or call 718-624-3614). As it turns out, this fits neatly into a program of Austen related events that are free and open to the public in connection with the annual meeting of The Jane Austen Society of North America, being held at the Marriott Brooklyn Bridge, 333 Adams Street.

On Thursday afternoon from 1:00 to 2:00 at the Marriott there will be a lecture, “In Search of the Real Jane Austen,” by Austen expert Annette LeClair. Admission is free, but please e-mail with your name and the number in your party, so they can know how many to expect.

This coming Sunday, October 7, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., also at the Marriott,

[d]ozens of authors will be present to sign a variety of books (available for purchase); the roster includes cocktail historian David Wondrich, and Austen-inspired novelists Syrie James and Linda Berdoll.

Free admission, and no rsvp necessary.

Update: Lady Susan Moving to New Location

July 10, 2012

This Saturday’s (July 14) reading, presented by Theater 2020, of Lynn Marie Macy’s work-in-progress Lady Susan or the Captive Heart, a Jane Austen Bodice Ripper, originally scheduled to be held at the Brooklyn Heights Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, has, because of the Library’s well known air conditioning problems, been moved to St. Charles Borromeo Church, 21 Sidney Place. It will be from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.; admission is free and no reservations are required; and the playwright and actors will be available for a brief discussion afterward.
