Salon South is back in Alabama on February 24th with “Zelda! Zelda!”

Posted by in Salon South, Upcoming Events

Our next gathering of Salon South is Monday, February 24th! We hope you’ll join us in Montgomery, Alabama for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of Zelda! Zelda! by Prattville’s own Marianne M. Weber.

The boys stood outside Zelda’s bedroom window calling, “Zelda! Come out, Zelda!” Lured by the promise of romance and fun, she crawled out her bedroom window to join them. Thus began Zelda Sayre’s waltz into the world of dazzling parties and the generation’s greatest artists. Thus she became the ultimate flapper and an exciting artist in her own right.This beautiful, talented young woman hitched her rising star to the famous F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the two lived for years in a bubble of glitz, glamour, wealth and excitement. Later, while Scott struggled to maintain his status as a successful author, Zelda struggled to maintain her sanity. Zelda! Zelda! dramatizes the life of this vivacious, talented, troubled woman who is recognized today as the face of the Jazz Age.

The Nora Salon: “Simple Gifts” is in NYC on January 19th!

Posted by in Nora Salon, Past Events

Our next gathering of The Nora Salon is the afternoon of Sunday, January 19th on Manhattan’s Upper West Side! We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of Evangelia Costantakos Kingsley’s two-act play, Simple Gifts.

In Hancock, Indiana, octogenarian ex-Metropolitan Opera diva and retired singing teacher, Elena Maxwell, is at the end of her life. Her much younger partner, Jean Lee, executive director of the Archives of Traditional Music at Hancock University, may beat her to the finish line. A young singer, Kirsten Mintow, needs guidance at the beginning of her musical career. The history of a nearby Shaker village breaks through the fabric of 1994. Simple Shaker song melds with sumptuous classical music, including the Shaker-infused music of Aaron Copland, as the play explores the theme of extinction and asks, “What makes life worth living?”
