Upstream Theater presents the U.S. premiere of Infected by Albert Ostermaier, translated by Philip Boehm.
A day trader in quarantine delivers a relentless, near-manic monologue that reveals his derailment from the fast track, and the resultant downward, deadly spiral… as though he may have contracted some horrible virus from the stock market monitors themselves. This gripping piece by one of Germany’s leading poet/playwrights is a relentless collage of ideas and images, where past and present collide and where one man’s innermost thoughts ricochet inside his head with all the volatility of a stock market in crisis. A very timely psychological study of a man and a society infected by greed.
Patrick Siler directs Alan Knoll in this one-man tour-de-force, which features Soundscape by David A. N. Jackson.

“Superheroes of Blackness” Brings the Future to St. Louis
Lamar Harris premieres an original Live Digital Musical Experience

ST. LOUIS- January 18, 2017 Just in time for Black History Month, comes the premiere of creative producer Lamar Harris’ ground-breaking original theatrical production, “Superheroes of Blackness” at .Zack on Friday February 23, 2018 at 7:30pm with an encore presentation on Saturday February 24, 2018 at 6:30pm.

Written by playwright Lois Hicks with musical compositions by contributors Jason “Dirtylynt” Moore, Paige Alyssa and Harris, “Superheroes of Blackness” ‘main character “LJay” will explore the implications of our world’s future in the year 2609 by examining the problems we face at present in 2018. “LJay”, an artificial intelligence being from the future, embarks on a quest to her past and our present to save the St. Louis urban community by assembling a task force of “superheroes” to tackle the issues that threaten the resilience and ultimate survival of St. Louis.

The vision of cartoonist/animator David Gordon and voiced by Jacqueline Thompson, 16 African-American comic book “Superheroes” and “LJay” will take the audience on a live computer-animated journey of epic proportions to face and overcome societal threats ranging from homicide, homelessness, to black empowerment. Producer Harris proudly proclaims “this is the first time in St. Louis that you have a lead character in a local theater production that is animated. Combine that with the live band soundtrack with the amazing visuals and it becomes a unique experience.”

A technological and musical spectacle, “Superheroes of Blackness” will transport the audience members through the sounds of Lamar Harris and an eight-piece live ensemble, the visionary digital set designs of Geordy Van Es. L Jay and costume designs of Nyla Coleman, all combined to bring this story of hope and inspiration to all.
“Superheroes of Blackness” will tap into the superhero and superpowers within us all while promoting a provocative dialogue about the greatness our city has within itself. In a time when our community’s survival and our society’s next evolutionary steps leave more questions than answers, this is not an experience to be missed. Make plans to attend and be a part of the conversation and the solution. Tickets and sponsorships are still available at www.thelamarharris.com . For more information, email info@liveloudmgmt.com

The Monocle welcomes Prisca Jebet Kendager as she debuts her new play “Seven and Ten” on February 23 & 24 at 8pm on the Emerald Room Stage. Prisca is a playwright, actress, and teacher in Kansas City, Missouri, and is thrilled to bring her work to Saint Louis! Below is a short synopsis of "Seven and Ten".

When Sarah was 14 she had a dream that God told her she and Ryan were supposed to be married. Being a God fearing man (at least as much of a man as you can be at age 14) Ryan agreed and they began courting. At 18 they were married. Once in seminary their friend Henry met Jenny. Henry liked Jenny a lot, and she felt the same. After a lot of prayer and counseling from Ryan and Sarah (the now “well versed” and most “experienced” married couple they knew) Henry and Jenny got married right after college. Ryan becomes a youth pastor, Henry becomes a worship pastor, and Jenny becomes a missions’ pastor. All at the same church. Life is simple and perfect...according to Sarah. After years of making choices at such a young age, Ryan and Jenny begin questioning everything, including whether or not they married the right people. Things become…complicated. Feeling her husband drift away, but not sure why Sara tries desperately to keep things in control. Praying more, and pretending everything is fine.Things begin to fall apart below the surface, but above everything thrives. So it’s ok right? That’s part of being involved in ministries. Your life falls apart, but as long as you change the world, it’s all fine. As the veils become more and more torn and tattered, and true selves come to the surface, even Sara herself is revealed to have her own shameful secrets and hatreds. Especially for Jenny.

Tickets are $10 in advance. S15 at the door.

For many years The Schwag hosted its own Schwagstock music festivals drawing crowds of an average of 5000 people per event several times per summer. The band owned the venue Camp Zoe in Missouri where the festivals were hosted. Some of the bands opening for The Schwag at these festivals were George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Keller Williams, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and New Riders of the Purple Sage. Some of the guest musicians to play with The Schwag over the years include Chuck Berry, Bill Nershi from String Cheese Incident, Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman from Leftover Salmon, Butch Trucks from The Allman Brothers Band, Fred Tacket from Little Feat, Mike Gordon from Phish, and Vince Welnick from The Grateful Dead.

Al Holliday and The East Side Rhythm Band bring you the finest soulful rhythm music. Inspired by the musical stylings of legendary artists hailing from New Orleans, Memphis, Chicago, and St. Louis, the group brilliantly blends blues, funk, R&B and soul into a sound they can call their own. This talented and powerful group of young musicians bring to life that old school sound that carries melodious tunes over a heavy groove creating a spirit penetrating and soul serenading sound.


"He sings with a depth and grit and twang not usually found in the metro area, and his comfort with Chicago blues, big-band soul and barrelhouse piano shows scholarship beyond his years. His voice is just growl-y enough that listeners may write it off as a pastiche of Randy Newman, or Joe Cocker, or Fats Domino, or some amalgam of all three. It may be, but Holliday owns it and uses it to sell these familiar-sounding tunes."

"The benchmark sound here is very much derived from pre-Meters New Orleans R&B, the type of stuff Dr. John might have sat in on...Holliday supplements his East Side Rhythm Band with those omnipresent Funky Butt Brass Band horns, swelling the horn section to seven players at times...Every so often the band takes it back up the Delta to Memphis...."

"Holliday certainly has the capability to take this little slice of R&B and make it his own."

RASTASAURUS:

 Rastasaurus was uncovered in the concrete jungles of Denver, Colorado, where they’ve been building an enthusiastic following around their new reggae sound. Centered around the prolific songwriting of Justus Lacewell (vocals, guitar), Rastasaurus also includes lifelong musical pals and identical twin brothers Eric (lead guitar) and Mark Ciccone (bass). The thick, psychedelic grooves of Ryan Kerr (keyboards) and the smooth, funky rhythms of Nick Souder (drums) round out the quintet.
With their original songs featuring an infusion of reggae with elements of funk, rock and roll, improvised jamming and dub, Rastasaurus is constantly exploring and expanding its own unique blend of American reggae.
