Ballyhoo Theater presents: On a clear day you can see forever
a clear day tells the story of psychiatrist Dr. Mark Bruckner and his insecure, but gifted patient, who hires Dr. Bruckner for help with a tobacco addiction. Through hypnosis, Dr. Bruckner discovers what he believes to be the embodiment of his patient’s past life, a woman named Melinda Wells. Over a series of sessions, Dr. Bruckner finds himself entering into a psycho-neurotic fantasy, confusing himself and his client.
a clear day features a new take from emerging director Nathan A. Smith. The book and lyrics are by Alan Jay Lerner and the music is by Burton Lane. Musical direction is by Tony McCahill, choreography is by Emma Drazkowski and performance is produced/mentored by Shileah Corey.
Sundays July 31 and August 7 at 2 p.m.
Friday and Saturday August 5-6 at 7 p.m.
Performances at The Black Box at Edmonds College. Tickets can be purchased here.
Author event at Edmonds Bookstore
Author Rachel Linden will be at Edmonds Bookshop to discuss her new novel, The magic of lemon pie August 18 at 6 p.m. during Art Walk Edmonds.
Linden will be in conversation with her friend and fellow author Marie Bostwick from 6-7 p.m. Both authors will be available afterwards to discuss and sign copies of their books. The part of the interview will also be streamed live on the Edmonds Bookstore Facebook page and then available for viewing on their website after the event.
The magic of lemon pie is due out in early August and is already on recommended summer reading lists. As in his other novels, The magic of lemon pie contains a combination of the author’s interest in international travel, cooking, and magical realism.
