Pioneer Place Theatre Company
January 19-January 30, 2015
Although many vocalists sang their own songs, including early rock & rollers like Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly, the term Singer/Songwriter refers to the legions of performers that followed Bob Dylan in the late 60s and early 70s. Singer/Songwriters drew primarily from folk and country, although some also incorporated the songcraft of Tin Pan Alley pop.
Fabulous Armadillos 2nd theme of the season will be bringing back this highly requested theme idea with a brand new show entitled SINGER/SONGWRITER II (clever huh…?) We will be playing the quintessential Singer/Songwriters of that generation and more. As the 70′s came to a close, the first wave of Singer/Songwriters dispersed into soft rock (James Taylor) and experimental avenues (Joni Mitchell) and straight ahead pop (Paul Simon and Carole King). Many contemporary Singer/Songwriters would also find success by writing with the introspection and intimacy of these early early troubadours. The Fabulous Armadillos will be showcasing many of these songs and artists from the early 70′s to today with their brand new January show “Singer/Songwriters II”.
February 12-February 21, 2015
Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, PROOF is a work that explores the mysteries of love and science. It focuses on Catherine, a young woman who has spent years caring for her father, Robert, a brilliant mathematician in this youth who was later unable to function without her help. His death brought into her midst both her sister, Claire, who wants Catherine to move to New York with her, and Hal, a former student of Catherine's father. Catherine has inherited a part of her father's brilliance--and perhaps some of his instability as well. As she and Hal become attracted to each other, they push at the edges of each other's knowledge, considering not only the unpredictability of genius but also the human instinct toward love and trust.
