TANYS AWARDS: The
Theatre Association of NY State recognized our production of LES MISERABLES with 8 awards, including:
Timeless Tale Gets a New Twist by The Two of Us Productions
The Two Of Us Productions in collaboration with
RARE, Inc., the award winning non-profit theater company based in Copake NY, is
bringing an updated version of Jesus Christ Superstar to the Performing
Arts Center at Taconic Hills Central Schools.
The show opens June 5th 2015 & runs for 6 performances. Jesus
Christ Superstar is the rock opera created by Tim Rice and Andrew
Lloyd Webber. It highlights political
and interpersonal struggles between Jesus,
Judas, the zealots and priests while
suffocating under the
Roman occupation. The opera follows Jesus
during the last few weeks of his life, beginning with the preparation for his
arrival in Jerusalem and ending with his crucifixion.
Director & co-producer Stephen Sanborn says
the story is as current now as it was two thousand years ago, “That is why our
production sets the story in current times.
It will have an urban feel, as will be seen by our casting, set,
costuming and choreography.” Sanborn set
out to use non-traditional casting for all roles with the exception of Jesus
and Mary, commenting, “I considered both women and men for all the other roles
and was lucky enough to find a large group of incredibly talented local actors. We’ll
also be using some hip hop style choreography
in this production to convey the gritty personal struggle in this show. Constance
Lopez, our usual choreographer has
been studying with some wonderful dancer/choreographers and is very excited to
have them involved in this production.” Choreographer Lopez goes on to say that
she is thrilled to have Debra Jo Hughes & Marcus McGregor from Hudson
Valley Academy of Performing Arts (HVAPA) contributing choreography for this
production. Lopez says “it is an honor
to be working with dancers of this caliber.". Stephen & Constance, working with their talented vocal director Daniel
Galliher, are in the midst of rehearsing the cast & full orchestra, and looking forward to opening on June 5th, 2015.
