1 Douglas & Alexandre it Lora with Dudu Maia
Extraordinary Brazilian guitarist and composer Douglas Lora is one-half of the celebrated Brasil Guitar Ouo and a member of the choro and samba band Caraivana, which moves easily between the classical, pop and world music. Choro is the Brazilian musical style which represents the coming together of European melodic and harmonic traditions with African rhythms and sensibilities. Emerging in Brazil in the middle of the 1 9th century, Choro is a cousin of jazz, with a sense of yearning that is often described as a "sweet lament." For this special Louisville performance, Lofa will perform on a seven-string guitar with two of his Caraivana bandmates - his brother, Alexandre Lora (percussion), and Dudu Maia ??-string mandolin.)

#2 The Gin Game
The Gin Game by D. L. Coburn premiered on Broadway in 1977, starring real-life married actors, Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy. An immediate hit, the play garnered four Tony Award nominations and the following year was awarded The Pulitzer Prize for Best Drama. The last time Bunbury Theatre produced this play was in 1991 at its then 7th Street location.
Juergen K. Tossmann, Bunbury's director and artistic director, remarked: "The Gin Game is a play that has spoken to me for over 30 years, and is as relevant today as it was when it was written. As a member of the baby boom generation, I can truly relate to the issues presented in Cobum's play and I'm sure our authences will as well."
. . .,extremely intelligent. . . fine bittersweet comedy. . . Funny, sad, profane, eloquent, touching, beautiful.
