The Oregon Shakespeare Festival mourns the passing of Michael Friedman, who brought his great artistry, energy, heart and mind to our company as an #AmericanRevolutions commissioned playwright. We send our love to his family, friends and collaborators, especially those at @civiliansnyc and @publictheaterny , his primary artistic homes.
*******************************
Michael’s musical for #AmRevOSF, AMERICAN POP, explores the history of American popular music from the 1840s through the early 1920s. In the last scene of AMERICAN POP, Michael quotes singer Sophie Tucker discussing the final performance at the Albee Palace Theater in New York: ********************************
“Everyone knew the theater was to be closed down, and a landmark in show business would be gone. That feeling got into the acts. The whole place, even the performers, stank of decay. I seemed to smell it. It challenged me. I was determined to give the audience the idea: why brood over yesterday? We have tomorrow. As I sang I could feel the atmosphere change. The gloom began to lift, the spirit which formerly filled the Palace and which made it famous among vaudeville houses the world over came back. The theaters, the saloons, the concert halls, and us performers, we shine for a moment. We lead our horrible brilliant terrible lives. We die. No one remembers us. The song survives.”
*******************************
You remembered, Michael, and we remember you. And, yes, oh yes, the song survives.

We're so excited about the @hbo premiere of @rschenkkan's ALL THE WAY this weekend that we're throwing it back to June 8, 2014—the day this #AmRevOSF commission took Best Play @thetonyawards. #tbt

Among the OSF artists who helped create that Broadway production—which also scored a Tony for lead actor Bryan Cranston—were Bill Rauch (director), Christopher Acebo (sets @cxadesign), Deborah M. Dryden (costumes), Jane Cox (music), Paul James Prendergast (original music & sound), Shawn Sagady (video projections), and Christopher Liam Moore (actor: Walter Jenkins). To throw it even further back, ALL THE WAY officially opened its world-premiere run here at OSF on July 28, 2012. #AmericanRevolutions

Tremendous congratulations to Lynn Nottage, who has won her second Pulitzer Prize for Drama! We are honored you trusted us with the world premiere of SWEAT.
Kudos to Alison Carey and Julie Felise Dubiner for yet another affirmation that they are doing something VERY right with #AmericanRevolutions: The United States History Cycle, to everyone at OSF who had a hand in bringing this stunning play to the stage for its world premiere here, and to our co-commissioning theatre @arenastage!

This is the 2014 Best Play Tony Award for @rschenkkan's @allthewaybway. Today, @thewing announced that fellow #AmRevOSF commissions @sweatbroadway by @lynnnottage & @indecentbway by @paula_vogel were two of the four @thetonyawards nominees for 2017's Best Play. It's been a pretty darn good #NewPlay day. #AmericanRevolutions #ParityRaid

ICYMI:
SWEAT and @lynnnottage are heading to Broadway!! Nottage is one of only two living female playwrights who will be produced on Broadway in 2016-17, along with @paula_vogel, @playbill reports at the link you'll find in our profile. What the article DOESN'T mention is that SWEAT & Vogel's INDECENT are BOTH commissions from our #AmericanRevolutions program, which also produced @rschenkkan's Tony-winning @allthewaybway. Boo to the dismal number of contemporary female playwrights on Broadway, huzzah to the brilliant women behind #AmRevOSF (Alison Carey & Julie Felise Dubiner), & congratulations, Lynn & Paula!
SWEAT continues @publictheaterny through 12/18. @sweatbroadway begins previews 3/4. #SweatOSF #NewPlay #ParityRaid @thekilroys

Perhaps some OSF company members gathered in the same room where team ALL THE WAY rehearsed back in 2012 to watch the HBO adaptation on Saturday. And perhaps cheers erupted when this credit appeared at the end.

Have you watched the film version of @rschenkkan's #AmRevOSF commission yet? What did you think? #AmericanRevolutions osfashland.org/AmericanRevolutions

It's not #tbt or #fbf, but #PresidentsDay calls for a little ALL THE WAY nostalgia. @rschenkkan #AmRevOSF #AmericanRevolutions @thetonyawards @allthewaybway

In case anyone was wondering how American Revolutions can have such a high rate of productivity... @osfashland #americanrevolutions #juliedubiner

Power of a #NewPlay: As of last week #RoeOSF has a new line to reflect the Supreme Court decision striking down abortion restrictions in Texas—giving the audience an even more immediate connection to the relevance of the issue, thanks to playwright Lisa Loomer and our game actors. #OSF2016 #AmericanRevolutions #AmRevOSF @berkeleyrep @arenastage
