WHAT'S GOING ON IN PHILADELPHIA???

PLENTY!!! While I'm still catching my breath, here are just some of the events going on in our fair hamlet. So If you'll be visiting Philadelphia and the surrounding area check these out......
Tancredi-The Kimmel Center

This medieval story of chivalry and tragic love is transported to the elegant atmosphere of post-World War I Europe in the Kimmel Centers production of Tancredi. The beautiful music of a young Rossini provides the soundtrack for the love between the exiled solider Tancredi and the beautiful Amenaide, daughter of the powerful Argirio. I hear Stephanie Blythe is amazing as Tancredi, as is the whole opera. I have already gotten tickets for the last show. The remaining shows are...

Martha Graham Cracker in Lashed But Not Leashed
March 16-18
8:00 pm - SEI Innovation Studio

 The vivacious, Ms. Martha Graham Cracker throws her all into a musical fever-dream as she belts out a bevy of original songs. But are we witnessing the swansong of her career? She's been disappointed by love and that fickle mistress called showbiz one too many times, and now she is determined to protect her delicate heart by barricading herself in the most unlikely of places: the library. Trading glitter and glamour for pensive quiet and study, Martha decides to pursue a graduate degree in library science, but even amongst the stacks there is no escape from love.

Steve Grand
The Rrazz Room- Friday May 5-7:30pm

Steve's piano and guitar-driven tracks are instantly timeless and familiar, and his sound is a tip of the hat to other American singer-songwriters like Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty.
The RRazz Room welcomes back Steve Grand after his sold out engagement in 2016. Steve has put together a brand new show for his return to New Hope. I'm looking most forward for this one too.

Come and see why The New York Times says "Steven Brinberg is one of the most gifted impressionists in the world ... not only is his singing voice the closest thing to Streisand's, he is hilarious as well.
