DallasJennifer Hudson, whose fame as an American Idol finalist (season three) rose when she won an Oscar for the film of Dreamgirls, will headline the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's Soluna: International Music & Harts Festival, performing April 20 at the Meyerson Symphony Center. Hudson has also appeared on Broadway in The Color Purple, and has won and been nominated for Grammy awards for her R&B albums.

The full line-up for Soluna was announced a few weeks ago.

Read more about Hudson and the performance in the DSO news release below:

 

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce Academy Award- and GRAMMY® Award-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson as the headlining performance for the 2019 Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival, POWERED BY CAPITAL ONE.  Hudson will appear with the DSO in a special, one-night-only event on Saturday, April 20, 2019, at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. Tickets range from $50-$350 and may be purchased beginning Thursday, February 21, 2019, at www.mydso.com/SOLUNA or by calling the DSO Guest Services Center at 214.TIX.4DSO. Hudson and the DSO will be led by Guest Conductor Sarah Hicks.

“We are honored and thrilled to perform with Jennifer Hudson,” said Kim Noltemy, President & CEO of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. “She is inspirational, and her soulful and powerful voice will ensure an unforgettable evening at the Meyerson. The Dallas Symphony will bring a unique perspective to her sound.”

Hudson’s appearance underscores the collaborative quality of SOLUNA, pairing different genres and disciplines to create new work. Previous SOLUNA collaborations with pop artists include St. Vincent (2015), Pharrell (2016) and Nas (2018).

This special event is sponsored by Capital One, a generous corporate partner of the DSO for five years.

“Capital One is passionate about elevating DFW as a hub for innovation,” said Sanjiv Yajnik, President, Financial Services at Capital One and Dallas Symphony Association Chairman of the Board of Governors. “The DSO has been a wonderful partner in building a thriving, forward-leaning community in North Texas. Through programs like the Young Strings, Women in Classical Music and world-class concerts, we are doubling down on the arts as a critical component in preparing for the future and unleashing innovation.”  

A two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist, Academy Award-winning actress and best-selling author, Jennifer Hudson is an extraordinary talent. From humble beginnings, Hudson began singing in a small Chicago church where, week after week, she brought the congregation to its feet. From there, she’s gone on to worldwide acclaim.

Hudson can currently be seen as a returning coach on the eighth season of The Voice UK. This past year, she returned for the second time to Season 15 of The Voice. Hudson will soon be seen in Tom Hooper’s upcoming film adaption of Cats and has begun pre-production for Liesl Tommy’s Aretha Franklin biopic, Respect. Her song, I’ll Fight, written by GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren for the critically acclaimed documentary, RBG, is a 2019 Oscar® nominee.

In 2016, Hudson appeared in NBC’s Emmy®-nominated production of Hairspray LIVE!, where she wowed audiences as powerhouse Motormouth Maybelle. She made her Broadway debut as Shug Avery in 2015 in the Tony Award®-winning production of John Doyle’s re-imagination of The Color Purple. The show earned rave reviews and a GRAMMY® win for Hudson. She was also nominated for a Drama League Award in the category of Distinguished Performance. In 2007, Hudson won an Academy Award for her role as Effie in the smash hit Dreamgirls, an adaptation of the Broadway musical. Her breakout film performance also garnered a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA and an NAACP Image Award.

DallasJonathan Norton, a Pleasant Grove native whose plays have become prominent on Dallas stages, has been named the new Playwright-in-Residence at the Dallas Theater Center. Norton's latest play, Penny Candy, which was commissioned by and workshopped at DTC, will have its world premiere at DTC in June.

Norton follows DTC's former playwright-in-residence, Will Power, who had that position for six years.

Norton's plays include Homeschooled for African American Repertory Theater, My Tidy List of Terrors and Mississippi Goddamn for South Dallas Cultural Center (the latter won him the Osborn Award in 2016), short plays for Bishop Arts Theatre Center and Soul Rep Theatre Company, and Solstice for Theatre Three. Another new work, A Love Offering, will be produced by Kitchen Dog Theater in a future season.

Penny Candy is autobiographical and is set in Pleasant Grove. It runs June 5-July 14 at the Wyly Theatre's Sixth Floor Studio Theatre.

DTC has announced announced details for applications for its upcoming Dallas Playwrights Workshop. That information is in the news release below.

 

Here is the DTC news release:

2017 Regional Theatre Tony Award® Recipient Dallas Theater Center welcomes newest Playwright in Residence Jonathan Norton, who will be leading the Dallas Playwrights Workshop. In September 2018, TACA (The Arts Community Alliance) announced Norton as the newest Dallas Theater Center Playwright in Residence, as a part of the TACA Bowdon Family Foundation Artist Residency Fund. Currently accepting applications, Norton will lead Dallas Theater Center’s free workshop program that is open to six participants. Applications must be submitted by January 27 and can be sent to literary.dtc@dallastheatercenter.org.

“I am thrilled that Dallas Theater Center will continue to deepen our relationship with Jonathan Norton as he steps into the large shoes Will Power has left behind, after serving as Dallas Theater Center’s inaugural Playwright in Residence for six years,” said Kevin Moriarty, Enloe/Rose Artistic Director at Dallas Theater Center. “Dallas audiences have already seen Jonathan’s work at theaters throughout North Texas in recent years, including African American Repertory Theater, Soul Rep, Theatre Three and many others. This season he will make his debut at Dallas Theater Center with the world premiere of his stunning play, Penny Candy. As Playwright in Residence Jonathan will write a new play for Dallas Theater Center, as well as lead our Dallas Playwrights Workshop and teach in our education programs. In the coming years, as Jonathan’s work will be seen on a larger, national scale, it’s a great joy for all of us who love new plays in Dallas to know that he’ll continue to have a creative home here in our community.”

“Dallas Theater Center is responsible for many game changing experiences in my creative and professional life,” explained Norton. “I saw my first play at Dallas Theater Center and it changed my life. I got my first commission from a [League of Resident Theatre] house thanks to Dallas Theater Center, and coming this June, Dallas Theater Center will produce the world premiere of my new play Penny Candy. Now thanks to Dallas Theater Center, my first role as Playwright in Residence!”

In 2015, TACA developed the TACA Artist Residency Fund in response to the 2014 Perforum symposium when the local arts community expressed a need for greater support of unique artist-community engagement opportunities. To date, the fund has distributed $300,000 to 13 residencies. The fund awards up to $50,000 annually to support the development of innovative artistic residency programs in Dallas County while fostering meaningful interaction among arts organizations, artists, and the greater community.

Norton said, “the residency means a lot because it gives me the opportunity to be deeply involved in the life of the company beyond a single production. But most especially, my time at Dallas Theater Center allowed me to work with and be mentored by Will Power. I was in the first cohort of the Dallas Playwrights Workshop. Will created the workshop to support DFW area playwrights, and I am so excited to carry on this very important work. I hope to create a supportive yet challenging environment freeing artists to do their best work.”

Dallas Playwrights Workshop was founded by Will Power in 2013 to support DFW area emerging playwrights. Over the course of the workshop, participants will write the first draft of a new play, develop strategies to strengthen their voice and build their knowledge about the business of playwriting. The workshop is comprised of two eight-week sessions and will conclude with participants identifying programs and theaters seeking their work, craft artistic and development statements, and dive into the revision process. A final showcase to DFW area artistic leaders will be scheduled to take place in fall 2019.

Dallas Theater Center is accepting applications for the Dallas Playwrights Workshop through January 27. The ideal candidate has written at least one full-length play (60 pages minimum), has some practical experience as a playwright either in readings or production settings, is an active participant in the DFW arts community and is ready to take the next step forward in their creative and professional journey. Applications can be sent to literary.dtc@dallastheatercenter.org.

Dallas — Dallas actress and playwright Jessica Cavanagh's play Self-Injurious Behavior, which had a hit workshop run at Theatre Three's Theatre Too! in 2018, will move to New York for a showcase at Urban Stages in April.

The New York run, April 21-May 5, will feature the Dallas cast, and will again be directed by Marianne Galloway. Cavanagh, Galloway and local producer Bren Rapp are the NYC producers; the Associate Producer is former Dallas actor Montgomery Sutton. The cast features Madison Calhoun, Cavanagh, Ian Ferguson, Desiree Fultz, Jennifer Kuenzer, Danielle Pickard, and Jude Segrest.

The play is based on Cavanagh's experience with her severely autistic son, and will be showcased as part of National Austism Awareness Month.

Jessica Cavanagh

After an incredibly successful workshop run at Theatre Three’s Theater Too in Dallas, playwright Jessica Cavanagh’s SELF-INJURIOUS BEHAVIOR is headed for a New York showcase run at Urban Stages. Produced by the Dallas-based team of Cavanagh, actor/director Marianne Galloway, and producer Bren Rapp, the play will run in April during Autism Awareness Month and will feature the original workshop cast under Galloway's direction. Along with the cast of seven, which includes Dallas acting powerhouses Ian Ferguson, Danielle Pickard, Jennifer Kuenzer and Cavanagh, starring as a fictionalized version of herself, the orignal Dallas production and design team including set designer Jeff Schimdt (Artistic Director of Theatre Three) will be involved in transitioning the show from its local workshop phase to its New York showcase. Acting as associate producer, former DFW actor/artist now based in New York, Montgomery Sutton, will help to bring the play to the New York market. Thanks to initial investment, the team is already at work and the process of securing the rest of the showcase’s funding is underway.

The workshop run of SELF-INJURIOUS BEHAVIOR became a runaway hit playing to enthusiastic audiences last summer (May/June 2018) and garnering critical praise for its writing, its ensemble cast and its direction. Regionally acclaimed and awarded, Cavanagh, Galloway, and Rapp have all had enormously productive 2018’s in DFW and beyond, with involvement in several of the year’s standout productions. Galloway notably helmed the sold-out, smash-hit regional premiere of ONCE at Theatre Three in addition to appearing in critically acclaimed productions of THE REVOLUTIONISTS with Imprint Theatreworks and ANGELS IN AMERICA: PART TWO, PERESTROIKA with Uptown Players, while Cavanagh garnered praise for her performances in both SELF-INJURIOUS BEHAVIOR and the regional premiere of HEISENBERG at Theatre Three. Bren Rapp is currently co-producing an Off Broadway show about the life of iconic comedian Lenny Bruce, alongside its writer and star, award winning stage/TV/film actor Ronnie Marmo and directed by Tony winner Joe Mantegna. I’M NOT A COMEDIAN…I’M LENNY BRUCE opened to rave reviews last fall and has extended its run into 2019. As an award-winning producer, Rapp also brought her company’s Fun House Theatre and Film’s Dallas hit, Jeff Swearingen’s STIFF  to New York last spring at TBG as part of her ongoing mission to get Dallas playwrights and their work further exposure, bringing interest back to the city’s thriving artistic scene.

SELF-INJURIOUS BEHAVIOR is based loosely on Jessica Cavanagh’s own story of loss, love, and survival. When severely autistic, eleven-year-old Benjamin becomes a danger to himself, his divorced mother, Summer, makes the excruciating decision to admit him to a home for special needs kids. Seeking comfort, she visits her sisters in Portland who desperately and hilariously attempt to distract her with a weekend of escapism at the local renaissance faire. Plagued by haunting dreams of her son and memories of her marriage, Summer is forced to face the need to let go. Striking a chord across audience demographics thanks to its bittersweet and unique blend of honesty and humor, playwright and star Jessica Cavanagh has captured, in telling her own story, a voice that speaks to the qualities within us all not only to cope with our own “unimaginables” but to continue to live, making the work more than just a story about autism or motherhood, but one about the resiliency of human nature.
