10/9/2007-11/4/2007 - Jet Theatre
6600 W. Maple Rd. West Bloomfield, MI 248.788.2900
"Old Wicked Songs" Pit an arrogant, frustrated 25 year old pianist against a cantankerous, sharp-witted, older Austrian vocal coach and sparks fly. This unlikely pair takes us on an unpredictable journey into identity, history, and the secrets of creating passionate art-- all woven together with the wonderful music of Schumann, performed live on stage.
