Hudert, Christopher Aesop's Fables Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Puppetry,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Aesop’s imaginative and informative world of amusing and instructive stories springs to life in these bright and delightful tales. A solo puppeteer/storyteller brings to the stage the tales of “The Ant and The Grasshopper,” “The Country Mouse and The City Mouse,” and “The Tortoise and The Hare.” Each fable has a moral, or lesson, that illustrates different proper behavior and highlights a different style of puppetry. The wit and wisdom of one of the world’s best known storytellers are as relevant today as they were when Aesop first told them nearly three thousand years ago.

Newborn, Ph.D., Jud TO LIFE! A HOLOCAUST HERO'S MODERN MIRACLE (The Amazing Story of the Man Who Brought the First News of the Holocaust to the West) (Holocaust, Jewish, Christian, History) History,
Museums,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
An evening of mystery and revelation. Revolving around the author's thrilling discovery of an unsung Holocaust hero's lost artifacts, Dr. Newborn tells a miraculous, life-affirming story of how three seemingly disconnected lives—his own included—magically intersected over time & space. They did so via the saving grace of the the Polish Jewish Bund's great spokesman, Artur Zygielbojm—-a tragic hero who sacrificed his life to bring the first news of the Holocaust to the West. Newborn's discovery links him by surprise to Zygielbojm's surviving niece, a 75 year-old champion ballroom dancer who brings him under her spell, inducing him to dance-—not to mourn, but to celebrate Jewish survival. A kind of post-modern Hasidic tale of the Holocaust that entrances, beguiles and moves all listeners. (With dramatic visuals)

A flavored blending of Americana, Roots and Folk music reflecting everyday life's struggles, foibles, laughter and tears. During this concert/lecture, O'Malley lets each song do the talking and invites the audience to interview the song as seen thought the eyes of the composer. James O'Malley is regarded as one of the most respected of contemporary folk artists in this region. An eloquent performer and celebrated songwriter, audiences who've experienced his concerts are embraced by a warm and powerful performance. He has performed for years and has released 3 CDs on his own label. James is a New York native and lives in Center Moriches, N.Y. and enjoys the intimacy of library settings. ...His artistry goes beyond the songs, having seen James perform many times, I am beginning to appreciate how each song is a loving relationship for him, like a child, he never seems to tire of bringing each one to life for the audience. We are always mesmerized. Thank you... Laura Jones - Jones Review
