Krishna Das' Kirtan: In Benefit for Tibetan Home of Hope
Tibetan Home of Hope is a nonsectarian home and school for children who would otherwise be abandoned in Chinese-occupied Tibet. Committed to nurturing, educating and preserving the future of Tibetans in their homeland, THH provides children with loving care, education, food, shelter, medical attention and the life skills needed to develop into independent adults with a full appreciation of their Tibetan heritage.
Join Krishna Das and friends for an evening of kirtan chanting, devotion, and heartfelt community. Krishna Das’ signature chanting style is profound and joyous, a balm to our hearts. Kirtan chanting is the ancient practice of call-and-response singing the mantras of the Divine Name. He travels the world, leading call-and-response kirtans and sharing this deep, experiential practice with thousands of people.
Tibetan Home of Hope and its founder Tashi Dolma would like to thank Krishna Das for his continued dedication and support.
“When we gather together to sing like this we are helping each other find our own paths.... All these paths wander on in their own way, but in truth we are all traveling together and until the last of us arrives we will all keep traveling. So let's sing!” - Krishna Das

The classic children's novel brought to musical life!
Written by Tony-nominated composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa (THE ADDAMS FAMILY, BIG FISH) and award-winning book-writer and lyricist Brian Crawley (Violet), A LITTLE PRINCESS is the story of a little girl with a great big imagination. Separated from her father, and the open-hearted Africans who have helped him raise her, young Sara Crewe is sent to boarding school in London. When things go badly for her there, her imaginative powers come to the rescue - helping to transform a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery.

Into The Woods
SOMEONE'S BEEN FOOLING WITH OUR FAIRY TALES!
Fairy tales. The bedrock of dreams, psychosis and creativity. Here they spring to witty, gorgeous life through Sondheim's stunning music and lyrics, and Lapine's spell-binding book. A multiple Tony Award-winner, Into the Woods takes the audience to a beguiling and dark place inspired by the Grimm fairy tales.
Among the classic characters that wander the woods searching for fulfillment of their wishes are Cinderella and her wicked stepsisters, Little Red Ridinghood and the Wolf, Rapunzel and her Prince, and Jack, of beanstalk fame. As their fanciful tales intertwine, they are forced to confront what actually happens after "happily ever after."
