La MaMa Cantata is the origin story of La MaMa told through song. Written, composed and directed by Elizabeth Swados.
We’ve got the airfare covered and now we’re looking to raise funds for: ground transportation; per diem; artist fees; food; accommodations; and a videographer to document the tour.
We're taking 9 talented young actors to Europe (many for the first time!) including: Catherine Brookman, Rachel Duddy, Roe Hartrampf, Starr Kwofie, Grace McLean, Alicia Olatuja, Hannah Whitney, Preston Martin, & Tom Hennes.
Liz Swados will also join us for the tour, along with Musical Director Kris Kukul, drummer, Eric Read, stage manager Michael Ulreich, tour manager Kaori Fujiyabu and tour videographer Jaehee Cho.
The La MaMa Cantata is a joyous celebration of Ellen Stewart and the history of La MaMa that bridges generations. Our cast has been inspired by Ellen and the artistic legacy she established that continues to thrive today. La MaMa has maintained a worldwide presence for decades and it only seems appropriate that we take the La MaMa Cantata on tour.
With your help we can bring the inspiring message of the La MaMa Cantata to an international audience.
