Here’s what’s in store at Hopewell Theater this September:
Your Stage at Any Stage: Open Mic Hosted By Michelle Klein – Thursday, September 1
Calling all singers, poets, and storytellers, neighbors near and far, anyone with obvious or unshowcased talents…Hopewell Theater’s stage is yours! Join us for this popular, 90 minute locally curated performance showcase hosted by songstress and storyteller, Michelle Klein, of the beloved Peasant Grill.
Karan Casey – Friday, September 16
Singing songs charged with a sense of social responsibility in a career spanning over 25 years, Karan Casey has released eleven albums and contributed to numerous other artists’ projects – appearing on more than 50 albums in total. Opening the show will be local singer-songwriter Helen O’Shea and guitarist James Popik!
Sunny War – Sunday, September 18
It’s no secret that great art comes from the margins; from those who are either pushed to create from inner forces, or who create to show they deserve to be recognized. Los Angeles-based street singer, guitarist, and roots music revolutionary, Sunny War, has always been an outsider, always felt the drive to define her place in the world through music and songwriting.
Supper Club: “Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story” Film + Supper & Discussion – Tuesday, September 20
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, a.k.a. “Jazz Fest,” is the signature annual music and cultural event of the city and has been called America’s greatest festival. After the film, join a discussion panel for a lively conversation, with details to come!
