Spoon River Project

directed by Tom Andolora

Imagine sitting deep within a Victorian cemetery on a beautiful summer’s night when some of its permanent residents begin to appear in the distance, assemble in front of you, and one by one divulge their secrets, their private thoughts, their regrets, and share the turmoil that filled their lives. This June 2013 the Green-Wood Historic Fund and Variations Theatre Company proudly bring back The Spoon River Project, a theatre piece with music adapted from Edgar Lee Masters’ 1915 masterpiece, Spoon River Anthology. Tom Andolora has adapted this classic American work for the stage, and directs the production as well. Choreography will be created by Jeffry Denman. (Broadway by the Year-Town Hall, Yank) The Spoon River Project had its New York City premier June 2011 at Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, to sold out houses and rave reviews by both audience members and the press. Erik Haagensen in Backstage, picked The Spoon River Project as a Critics Choice. He wrote “We may live in a very different world that that of Spoon River, but Masters’ truths about the human condition are eternal. The Spoon River Project delivers them with love, care, and rich, enveloping atmosphere. I’m so glad I went.” The Spoon River Project will take place at night, in the middle of Green-Wood Cemetery, under the night sky and lit by lanterns and torches. A trolley will take you deep into the cemetery to watch this elegant, beautiful, site specific piece of theatre. It will play for 14 performances. There will be special performances where the audience will be able to tour the catacombs before the show. For more information please go to www.TheSpoonRiverProject.com
