Spoonface Steinberg | Burning Coal Theatre at the Murphey School | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.

Spoonface Steinberg 

When: April 7-24 2016
Price: $15-$25



You can call this show a staged reading with benefits for two reasons. Each night, different local celebrities will perform what originally was a one-person BBC radio play, with part of the proceeds going to charities. But they won't be alone onstage. In Lee Hall's uncanny drama, a twelve-year-old girl with autism hasn't got much time to figure out a lot of things: Why are her parents sometimes together and sometimes not? What are the doctors not divulging about her gift for numbers and her ailing body? And how do you die the right way? Only the beauty of opera gives the title character moments of transcendence. As such, soprano Julianna Tauschinger-Dempsey will perform songs associated with Maria Callas during the performance. Christian Stahr accompanies on piano; Jerome Davis directs. —Byron Woods
