2012 - Tennessee Williams and Music
Year seven reminded us how important music was to Williams. In his seminal work, The Glass Menagerie, we're told, "In memory, everything seems to happen to music." So too with the dream-like Ten Blocks on the Camino Real, the seedy underscore of the French Quarter in Auto-da-Fe, and the ever-present storm brewing in Kingdom of Earth (an award-winning production from South Africa). We ushered in the birth of three new works: Gift of an Orange, based on a Williams short story; Autumn Song, Rilke and Williams poems set to music; and The Tennessee Williams Songbook, a jewel box of American standards from Williams plays.
This bittersweet Williams masterpiece stars critically acclaimed Alabama actress Celeste Burnum, and sets the tone for the Festival, where “in Memory, everything seems to happen to Music.”
The Festival culminates with a fabulous evening of American standards starring Broadway's Alison Fraser singing a memorable collection of songs found in Williams’ plays.
