By: Ellis Nassour

Want to ring in the New Year with a buck instead of a bang? Then the
place to be is with the international bull riders – but, unless you are brave and wear chaps, on the sidelines.

A black man and a white man stand on a cliff, overlooking a vast expanse of land representing America. A family builds a bunker made of books. Two young black men in hoodies lie in pools of red light, being held by their mothers.

Tony Award Winner Laura Benanti must have had quite a nightmare dreaming that all sopranos would one day be shipped out and banished to an island! Well, who knows, maybe they will . . . but she will be left behind to weave her magical soprano web on audiences now awaiting her at Café Carlyle. She is the perfect representative of the group as she plies her warm, delicious purring well trained voice along with her quick-witted humor in this debut performance.
