Naked in F Sharp : An Un-Dress Rehearsal
a comedic musical presentation featuring pianist Pamela Ross and cellist Adrian Daurov
Where: The Hudson School, 601 Park Avenue, Hoboken New Jersey
When: Sunday, October 28, 3 PM
About The Show:
Naked in F Sharp : An Un-Dress Rehearsal , featuring Pamela Ross/pianist and Adrian Daurov/cellist will be presented on Sunday, October 28th, at 3 PM at The Hudson School, 601 Park Avenue at Sixth Street, Hoboken. New Jersey. After the performance, the audience is invited to participate in an informal conversation with the artists/creators. Vintage tap water will be served in environmentally friendly paper cups. The show was conceived after two successful back to back duo concerts at Lincoln Center this past December, where the two performers realized that the audience was laughing a lot. Not knowing whether the attendees were laughing at them or with them, they decided to take the chance that either way, they’d come out ahead if they moved into the realm of “theater” and took themselves and their friendly and unfriendly detractors into the world of musical “fantality” – a combination of fantasy and reality. Come join them as they serve up ample portions of tangos, Brahms, the late Marvin “A Chorus Line” Hamlisch and others in a musical sundae on a Sunday.
