    Winter Performances at Papermill Theatre

    This Winter the Papermill Theatre will be offering 2 performances as well as 3 different concerts.  For the play productions you can book tickets through me and save $5 per person.

    The first production is called Love Letters and will begin on Friday January 11, 2013.  Here is a brief synopsis of the show: 

    The handwritten note leaves an indelible mark forever, not only on the ink-stained paper, but also in the heart of its reader.
    American playwright A.R. Gurney knew this when he created his Pulitzer Prize nominated play Love Letters.
    Love Letters, considered one of Gurney´s best and a classic of the American stage, tells the story of two people who grew up in the 1930s and whose lives become intimately entwined by the prolificacy of their pens. 



    The second production will begin on January 18, 2013.  Here is a brief synopsis of the show: 
     HATE MAIL is described by the authors as “an epistolary play something like Love Letters, with two actors reading letters and other correspondence, but it's a little wilder and more hysterically funny. It tells the story of Preston, a spoiled rich kid who meets his match in Dahlia, an angst-filled artist. Their worlds collide when Preston sends a complaint letter that gets Dahlia fired from her job, and then there's no turning back. The play stays with their increasingly crazed correspondence as they move from hate to love, and then right back again”.

    These production start a real life engaged couple Valerie Rigsbee and Gary DuBreuil.

    The 3 Concert performances will be on January 12, 2013, February 17, 2013, February 18, 2013 and March  23, 2013.

    The January 12 concert is Guy Davis.  Blues legend, Guy Davis, comes to Jean's Playhouse stage bringing his "blues made for humming along, stomping your foot, feeling righteous in the face of oppression..." - according to a popular men's magazine. Davis has performed with Conan O'Brien and nationally syndicated radio programs such as Garrison Keillor’s, “A Prairie Home Companion”, “Mountain Stage” or David Dye’s,“World CafĂ©”. You do not want to miss this one night only show.


    The February 17 Concert will feature the Zydeco Princess Rosie Ledet. 
     Rosie Ledet & the Zydeco Playboys
    The Princess of Zydeco Music at Jean's Playhouse. If you've seen Treme on HBO you have heard and love zydeco music. Rosie Ledet is an American Creole Zydeco accordion player and singer. 

    The February 18 performance will feature the magic of Norman Ng. Norman Ng is a new kind of magician. His style is unique, energetic, and engaging. His magic is original and mind-blowing. His shows are hilarious and amazing.
