Despite the incredible heat wave hitting the DC region, an intrepid group of 30 or so folks came out this past Friday night to hear great music and support the marvelous work being done by Open Circle Theatre.
Part of the Sounds Of Hope performance series hosted by Potters House in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Northwest DC, the featured performers were Tom Nichols and Joe Peck. Both singer/songwriters, each brought his own style to the stage for a very entertaining evening. At bat in the opening slot, Joe’s set was a collection of all original songs – alternative acoustic music with heavy doses of blues, country, folk, and pop. Bringing the show home, Tom shared a mix of original inspiring pop tunes and popular cover tunes from The Eagles, Elton John, James Taylor, etc.
Everyone had a great time, and the night was a fine success as funds were raised to support future works by Susie Richard, Artistic Director of Open Circle Theatre, and the good folks at OCT as they continue to highlight the contributions of individuals with disabilities – on stage, backstage, and in arts administration – in an integrated setting. For those of you who missed it, you will NEVER get the chance to see Susie Richard wait tables again. That alone was worth the price of admission!!! You shoulda been there!
