    • Reflections of a Revolutionary in Residence
      “Papi, am I a princess?” “Yes, Anabella, you are. But we all are. In our country every one of us is a king or a princess,” I said, echoing the words of young Mr. Jefferson as played by Kurt Smith. She was right to ask: my family was feted like never before during my recent...Read More »

    • An Anecdotal History–and Mythology–of the Stars and Stripes
      June 14 is Flag Day, marking the day in 1777 that the Second Continental Congress adopted the stars and stripes as America’s national banner. But it takes a bit more than the dawn’s early light to make out the origins of the flag. Still, it’s worth a try. Let’s start with the stripes. In 1769 some...Read More »
    • Did 18th-Century Tradespeople Worry about Machines Taking Their Jobs?
      The fear of machinery replacing jobs is a fear as old as… invention itself. While it is easy to consider this a modern anxiety – cashiers being replaced by automated checkouts, industry being hit by mechanized assembly lines – the concern goes back centuries.

imageExperience one of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time! Winner of eight Grammy Awards and an Emmy, this legendary performer and composer is at home in every style of music, from his beloved jazz to classical."Whether firing volleys into the stratosphere or unspooling long, luscious melody lines, trumpeter Sandoval tends to dominate any room he’s in. Add to this Sandoval’s exuberant stage patter, warmly romantic pianism, robust timbales playing and gleefully maniacal singing, and you have an artist who instantly raises the emotional temperature- Friday, May 24, 8PM

This year, hear Debbie Gravitte, who has charmed audiences from Broadway ("Les Miserables") to the movies ("The Little Mermaid"); Tony-nominated singer/actress Christiane Noll ("Ragtime," "Jekyll and Hyde"), and Doug LaBrecque, who has thrilled theater audiences in "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Showboat."

Hot Sardines -May 26 -7:00 PM

Le jazz hot of Paris meets N’Awlins! Hot jazz, salty stride piano, and the kind of music Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller used to make: straight-up, foot-stomping fun (literally–the band includes a tap dancer whose feet count as two members of the rhythm section). Put a tap in your step and a smile on your face with this beguiling band! Part of Festival Williamsburg.
