AmpersandStairs3November 29th, 2017: Ampersand

Ampersand is an ensemble of flexible proportions, loosely based in New York, NY. Our members are an ever-changing roster of exceptionally talented artists from all over the world. Our repertoire selections are guided by what the world needs to hear, tending towards vocally-centric pieces from the fringes of the common-practice era with modern and early bits sprinkled in for color.
We aspire to exploit the relationship between music and speech, art and conversation. Seeking to communicate the inherent connectivity between all things, we are AMPERSAND.

February 2018 (exact date TBA): Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts is a multi-media performance piece, created by Emma Tattenbaum-Fine (writer and comedian), Noelle McMurtry (soprano), and Andrea Kleinbussink (illustrator) which combines comedic stories and sketches, American musical theatre songs from the 20th and 21st Centuries, and original projected artwork to explore the layers of absurdity, complexity, tragedy, and beauty that evolve with the presence of romantic love in one’s life. By programming stories, songs, and illustrations from a decidedly female perspective, Emma, Noelle, and Andrea offer a mosaic of complex, ironic, and modern female characters, each with their own unique perspectives on love and relationships.

As a developer of new work, he is often directing workshops, readings, and small festival productions having served perviously as Producing Director for New Voices Project, a new play workshop at the Secret Theatre. He studied at Albright College and is an alumnus of The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center where he frequently returns to direct and teach at the Young Playwrights Festival. Yvonne is drawn to new plays with strong ensembles featuring characters from all walks of life.
