The Birth of the Cool: Miles Davis and Gerry Mulligan

Lee Konitz, guest coach

 

While the bebop style is being explored in the Juilliard Jazz Orchestra, the small ensembles will delve into one reaction to Bebop known as Cool Jazz, a style that arose after World War II.

Juilliard Drama presents Jen Silverman’s Still

Margot Bordelon, director

Juilliard Drama Group 45 (fourth-year actors)

 

Playwrights Program alumna Jen Silverman returns to Juilliard with this haunting and darkly comic play about three women and a child who never got to be born. Still follows Morgan, a mother in mourning over a stillborn child, Elena her midwife, and Dolores an eighteen year old sometime dominatrix. Constantinople, the child Morgan never had, in wandering the world searching for his mother, encounters all three women and changes their lives. In awarding Still the very prestigious Yale Horn Prize in 2013, Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Marsha Norman wrote, “I have read other plays on [this] subject, but none…as elegant in formal structure, none with language both surreal and trashy, none as funny, and none as moving.”
