An Evening with Dar Williams
Jun 9 @ 7:30 pm
An Evening with Dar Williams @ Chandler Center for the Arts | Randolph | Vermont | United States

Dar Williams has been called “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters” by The New Yorker. Known as much for her staunch progressive ideals as her raw acoustic energy, Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the ‘90s. During the course of her two-decade-long career, she’s shared stages and recording studios with distinguished musical peers such as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin, Richard Thompson, Jill Sobule, and Loudon Wainwright III. Along the way she’s released 10 albums and authored four books, including her latest, What I Found in a Thousand Towns: A Traveling Musician’s Guide to Rebuilding America’s Communities.

This event is part of the Vermont Arts Council’s Vermont Arts 2018, a year-long celebration highlighting the stunning array of arts events — concerts, festivals, exhibits, and openings — that take place all across the state.

In S.P. Monahan’s raunchy, heartfelt comedy, Norman’s grown a little distant lately. After a sudden series of anxiety attacks, he broke up with his long-time boyfriend Ian and moved clear across the country, leaving his fathers George and Jack in a tizzy. With George – a prominent gay activist – in failing health, Norman has returned home to make things right and to introduce them to his new partner, Andy. Let’s just say she’s not what they expected….. Directed by Gene Heinrich.

Bright Half Life @ Chandler Center for the Arts | Randolph | Vermont | United States

Taking place over a 45-year period, this play movingly explores the stages of a relationship between two lesbians. In a non-linear way, the audience comes to understand how the women met, why they married, how they lived as a couple, and how their marriage came to end in divorce. The New Yorker described it as “a well-written, engaging portrayal of smart women finding themselves, and each other.” Written by Tanya Barfield, directed by Kim Ward.
