A musical Saturday at Boston Court with O-Lan Jones

The Theatre @ Boston Court presents O-Lan Jones: 20 Years of Theatre and Music, for one night only, on Saturday, October 20, 2012 in Pasadena, CA.

Nine songs by O-Lan Jones have been selected for the performance from five productions.  Selections include Appalachian duets, operatic solos, and tribal pieces, which will be performed by recurring cast members from Overtone Industries, Jones’ experimental production company.  As a special treat, the evening will also feature the first public performance of Jones’ improvisational group, The Spontaneous Combustion Choir.

The evening is all about Jones, a cultural legend and creative force who has composed three short operas; two full-length operas; five musicals; created original music, songs, and sound designs for more than 30 theatrical productions; and has scored two short films.

O-Lan Jones is a full-service artist – an award-winning composer, actor, sound designer, and writer.  Miz Jones is also the Artistic Director of Overtone Industries, a company that creates new mythological operas and theatricales; including Songs and Dances of Imaginary Lands, a collaboration of 21 librettists and 11 composers performed in a 25,000-square foot abandoned car dealership, which premiered in 2010.  The critically acclaimed Songs and Dances was called, “ambitious and possibly ground-breaking” by Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times.  Earlier this year, she wrote The Woman in the Wall, a medieval opera presented at the Culver City Masonic Lodge.
