Louise Goffin with Butch Norton
As the producer of a Grammy nominated album (Carole King’s A Holiday Carole), singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, recording artist, and mom, Louise Goffin is a badass, multi-talented, modern-day renaissance woman. Her formative years in California’s famed Laurel Canyon gave her a virtual PhD in Popular Music as the first-born daughter of two of their generation’s most renowned songwriters, Carole King and Gerry Goffin.

Louise released six albums of her own, the last in 2014, Songs From the Mine. This highly sought-after producer and go-to songwriter has also toured the world on electric guitar with Tears For Fears. “Pure nirvana for pop melody freaks,” Louise welcomes School of Rock’s very own The Kelson Twins to open this can’t-miss concert at the Athenaeum Theatre.

Tiger At The Gates
The Trojan War, the Mother of all Western Wars, spawned the Mother of all Western Literature. What if, at the dawn of western history, there had been no epic poem of the glory of war, but rather a passionate plea made by a warrior for a story of peace? What would have happened had the Trojan War been avoided? Could it have been avoided? In John Arthur Lewis’s production of Tiger At The Gates (originally titled The Trojan War Will Not Take Place) the Gates Of War are omnipresent, threatening to open at any time. Because war is always threatening. And peace is always longed for.

Creation’s Birthday
Creation’s Birthday brings to life the story of the Big-Bang Genesis through the legendary battle between astronomer Edwin Hubble and the scientific icon Albert Einstein. How did a boxing champ, war-hero, Rhodes scholar, and upstart astronomer gang up with a moonshine-peddling janitor (Milton Humason) to discover our expanding universe? And how did Hubble and his Jesuit priest-ally (Father George Lemaitre) use the expanding universe to expose the greatest blunder of the greatest scientist? How could the infallible, scientific genius of the century so bungle his theory so as to miss the creation of the universe?

“We must be able to have these conversations with our community. The intent of Twisted Melodies is to open up a safe and healing conversation about mental illness in our community and ways we can help each other cope. Donny (Hathaway) was a musical genius coping with schizophrenia, it was a part of him and a part of his music and brilliance.
