    Crossing Over

    A new music theater cabaret with Tom Bogdan (vocals) and Harry Huff (piano), directed by Terry Creach. The title of the show has a double-meaning. On one hand, it refers to that new hybrid genre of the American art song which "crosses over" the boundaries of classical music and the best of pop and musical theater. On the other hand, it contrasts the two sides of our post-9/11 minds: the side which is heightened by patriotism and fear, and the side which embraces the precious dullness of our everyday lives. Tom Bogdan is a pioneer of "cross over" singing. His concerts have also been considered definitive works in the application of the gay sensibility to music. Commentary on our state of mind since the terrorist attacks is inevitable, and this evening aims to provocatively juxtapose our media-driven, heightened emotions with our longing for "normal" existence. Throughout, Bogden will move through differing kinds of 9/11 imagery. "Crossing Over" develops the notion of our heightened awareness of the gap between " media reality" — where nothing seems to matter beside war and terrorism — and the fact that we seem to struggle on, with out meager loves, health concerns and overdue bills. The evening culminates with Meredith Monk's "New York Requiem," which was originally written in response to the AIDS crisis which seems to be most pertinent now after the losses at the World Trade Center.
