A UAlbany alum, this Capital Region native is a three time Tony nominee for her roles in Lestat, Parade and, most recently, Scandalous. She returns home for a luscious evening of standards and songs from her award-winning Broadway career. Described by Variety as “one of those force of nature performers,” “Carmello possesses a rich, dramatic voice” [Associated Press] and “gives her heart and soul to every song she sings.” [The New York Times] More info

29 years old and forbidden to leave his country, playwright Nassim Soleimanpour distills the experience of an entire generation in a wild, utterly original play about contemporary Iran and those born amidst the hardship of the Iran-Iraq war. He turns his isolation to his advantage with a play that requires no director, no set, no rehearsal and a different actor for each performance. Premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and since performed around the world, this experimental work is a “thoughtful, playful response to oppression.” [The Guardian] More info
