With Special Guest BRIDGE CORE artist SETH TUCKER

Music Direction by ALICIA FERRIN
Hosted by BRIDGE CORE artists

This March we center our conversation on the ways musical theater uses humor, poetry and storytelling to help us process grief and sadness. How do writers and composers bring us new, often humorous, perspectives on these universal themes? How, in a time when we have all been touched by loss, does one perform these works in a way that honors their personal experience without consuming them? How often do actors have the experience of being truly sad while singing something emotional and what does that do to their body? How can dark subject matter elicit some of our biggest laughs?

We invite audience members to choose from one of the suggested price levels, keeping in mind that the higher the ticket price you select, the more bridges we can build.

Building Bridges @ ASU Kerr is produced by The Bridge Initiative in collaboration with ASU Kerr and is supported in part by a grant from Scottsdale Arts.

*Artists subject to change, although they never have in the history of this program. Okay, maybe this program hasn’t launched yet so there is nothing on which to base that. But the good news is…we aren’t liars. However, we do live in COVID times and, unannounced, we all have to deal with spontaneous emotional, logistical, physical, metaphorical, and sometimes literal shitshows. If at anytime we do have to switch featured artists, speakers, and experts, we promise to switch them out with someone else equally amazing. Now take a deep breath
