Venus Smiles Not in the House of Tears
October 9, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Come experience The Public Theater’s Venus Smiles Not in the House of Tears, a transformative multi-genre concert event, written and produced by Samora Pinderhughes and Jack DeBoe. Here’s the kick: B’scursions will watch the live premiere event at 8 pm, keeping up with a YouTube chat with the writers as we watch! The Public Theater describes how “captivating Venus pulls us close and then leaves us to wrestle with the truths and lies of love, through Pinderhughes’ explorations of romance, grief, and memory in relationships past. Heralded as one of his generation’s most captivating composers, Pinderhughes showcases his style—a combination of emotional and political storytelling, with radically honest lyrics set to lush harmonies—in this enthralling new work.
