The Button Factory 30th March
Hey Spring Break fans,
We hope this electronic mail finds you well.
Spring is here but, as always, taking a break is the furthest thing from our minds. It’s this time of year when we raise anchor and plot a course for another voyage of self-discovery and intense showbiz action. And right now we’re on a pilgrimage to the heart of our creative core, focussing our attention on the preparation of a dazzling show that will be the centrepiece of our dear friend Elisabeth Shue’s 50th birthday bash this fall.
It’s been hard work dreaming up a spectacle that does justice to an actress whose natural empathy, wise counsel and passion for legwarmers in summer inspired a karate kid to become a karate man. But it sure has been rewarding paying tribute to a friend who’s touching a half-century but looks as though she’s just travelled back to this future.
Our celebration of Liz’s life – If The Shue Fits… – is nearing completion and a song we’ve composed especially for the occasion, On The Other Foot, should be marching in to the charts before the month’s out.
With this emotionally intense period of composing concluded, we this week convened at our rehearsal facility in Langley (VA) to find out how best to blend this new material with our more road-tested hits of yesteryear. To find out how it all works together join us this Easter Saturday, March 30th, in The Button Factory, when we’ll be raising a glass to Liz and remembering the wild adventures in babysitting we shared way back when.
Tickets for this show are NOW ON SALE online at www.tickets.ie and in Sound Cellar of Nassau St.
