Get caught up on our 2020 Home Brew at Home series! See (or see again!) Blood Flow, TIT, and Then They'll Tell You It's All In Your Head!
Happy Holidays from 7 Stages! This season, we're offering a "See All Three" package for our 2020 Home Brew at Home series. Watch any time from Thanksgiving through Inauguration Day!
by Robert Earl Price, film created by Ashley James
A multimedia artwork that reflects the continuous role of art as a force of resistance to crimes against humanity past present and future. We offer, in these times of pandemic, racial strife and economic exploitation and oppression. A war dance, a battle cry, a chant that challenges time in all tenses. And an inspiring vision of our world that we cannot turn away from. The original film is inspired by the text of Mr Price’s new collection of poetry and will feature local artists and community members including but not limited to Dorothy Bell, Jaden Gustin and his family, Parris Sarter, Abbie Richards and her mother, Eugene Russell, Darrell Grant, and Mama Yeye.
by Elizabeth Dinkova, Jesse Rassmussen and the ensemble
In the desolate war-torn future, the Neo-Roman Empire has risen from the cannibalized corpse of our old United States. We follow the intersecting stories of those in power and those who seek to gain it. Aaron: Emperor Saturninus’ Black entertainer by day, revolutionary by night. Tamora: captured queen of the Native-led Goths, fighting for survival. Bass: queer Black Congresswoman, leader of Rome’s political opposition party. At the center of it all is Lavinia: the ‘mute’ heroine, daughter of General Titus. She who walks between worlds - the voice that leads us through the dark. Once the victim Lavinia now smashes the glass and grabs the axe - calling us to awaken and unite against injustice! TIT is a kaleidoscopic visual album about finding one’s voice through acts of radical compassion.
Then They'll Tell You It's All In Your Head
by Theresa Davis, directed by Dawn Axam
In her first scripted Home Brew, Theresa Davis took the stage with her visceral words while embracing storytelling in a one-woman manifesto of what it means to be black, human, female, mother in America. Now with director Dawn Axam, and collaborators Destiny Renee, daughter Tia and son Zion, we invite you to enter her world via this original film - offering a sanctuary of bars and stages, places where honest spirits haunt and share, where muses make the world make sense and assure her that she is walking in her purpose visible to all who choose to see. Intertwined with movement, sound score, characters and poetry from her collection "Drowned: A Mermaid's Manifesto," with Sibling Rivalry Press, Davis makes it clear that these issues are not all in her head, and that NO, you cannot drown a mermaid. Read for the first time in 2017, in this church of prose and poetry, we find things have not changed and it’s not in our heads. BLACK LIVES MATTER
A Christmas Carol with a Twist...
We are so pleased to partner with Streaming Musicals to present Estella Scrooge: A Christmas Carol with a Twist!
A magical musical created with new cutting-edge technology is sure to become a new holiday tradition! Gather the family with some cups of hot cocoa to watch the world premiere of Estella Scrooge: A Christmas Carol with a Twist, now streaming through January 31st. Estella Scrooge is a modern-day Wall Street tycoon with a penchant for foreclosing. A hotelier in her hometown of Pickwick, Ohio, has defaulted on his mortgage and Estella will handle the matter personally. Arriving at Harthouse on Christmas Eve, Estella discovers
that the defaulting party is her childhood friend Pip Nickleby. A generous soul, Pip has transformed the property into a refuge for the sick, dispossessed and homeless. A freak snowstorm forces Estella to take refuge. That night, just as it happened to her ancestor Ebenezer, she is haunted by three visitations...and oh, what uninvited houseguests they are!
A modern take on Charles Dickens’ beloved 1843 novella, Estella Scrooge also wittily incorporates characters and plot lines from Dickens’ other great novels Great Expectations, Little Dorrit, and Bleak House, among others. The production features a cast of 24 award-winning Broadway notables, and is the creation of John Caird, (the Tony and Olivier Award-winning director of Les Misérables and Nicholas Nickleby), and Tony Award nominee Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice).
Creative technology puts live actors into thrilling 3-D digital surroundings, making this pandemic-filmed show look totally different from anything else created during this time. Director/co-book writer John Caird says, “I’m so happy to bring this new musical to life in the midst of these mad and maddening times. The creative team nimbly learned new techniques to bring the actors and their characters together. It’s wonderful to provide employment for the theatre community while we enliven the classic Christmas Carol story, refashioned with a new twist for today. At a time of great conflict and hardship, I hope we can shine a little ray of optimism into the surrounding darkness."
Betsy Wolfe (Waitress) stars as Estella, a descendent of her famous great great-great-great-grandfather Ebenezer. Clifton Duncan (The Play That Goes Wrong) stars as Philip ‘Pip’ Nickleby. 2020 Tony Award nominee Lauren Patten (Jagged Little Pill) stars as Dawkins. The production also stars Tony Award nominees Patrick Page (Hadestown & The Lion King) as Mr. Merdle, Carolee Carmello (Parade & Tuck Everlasting) as Marla Havisham and Danny Burstein (2020 Tony Award Nominee, Moulin Rouge!) as Ebenezer Scrooge. Watch the trailer below!
Tickets are $29.99 per household for 72-hour viewing , or $44.99 for a VIP Premium Theatre Experience, which includes unlimited viewings, a download of the CD, and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
