COME HOME YEAR

St. John’s native, James Hurley is a classical pianist with a passion for improvisation.  As a performer, James combines his love of classical and improvised music.  His solo work has focused on long form improvisations which are serene explorations of space and timing.  Since 2011, James has relocated to Germany.  A dream he’s had since he was a child became realized in 2015 as he opened Piu Piano, a live performance venue and piano school.  James has curated and presented dozens of workshops and concerts featuring respected artists from around the world. 

We are delighted to welcome James back home and to The Rooms for a magical performance.

Tickets are $34.50 per person (10% discount for Rooms Members)

 

Events & Programs

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Shakspeare By The Sea

CORIOLANUS
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Mallory Fisher

This production marks Artistic Director Mallory Fisher's directorial debut with the company, and will broaden the appeal of Shakespeare by re-examining one of his lesser known and infrequently staged plays—Coriolanus—in a contemporary context. Set in present-day Newfoundland, the production will underscore the play’s extant themes of corruption of power, instability of capitalism, desensitization to violence, and toxic masculinity to examine our current political and social zeitgeist.

Tickets: $25 (general admission), $20 (students, seniors, unwaged)
