Open Eye Figure Theatre Presents


August 16 - 26, 2018

A new concert from Chronofon Productions

Bradley Greenwald, Prudence Johnson, Diana Grasselli, and Dan Chouinard return to present Dear Lenny: Bernstein’s Life in Songs & Letters, their meditation on Leonard Bernstein's commitment to music, love, and the artist as progressive social activist. Bernstein's masterpieces from Broadway, the concert hall, and the silver screen—together with his fascinating and candid correspondence with Aaron Copland, Steven Sondheim, Jerome Robbins, Thornton Wilder, Bette Davis, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and more—will be presented in a theatrical concert that, as Bernstein would put it, "appeals to both the intellect and the heart."

Leonard Bernstein’s 100th Birthday Soirée on August 25!

Celebrate Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday with the artists of Chronofon!  Join us for a special Birthday Soirée event on August 25, featuring  pre-show cocktails, performance of DEAR LENNY, followed by an After-glow Party and sing-along with the cast!
