World Premiere A BLESSING ON THE MOON The Colour of Poison Berries Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre Music by Andy Teirstein, libretto by Andy Teirstein and Joseph Skibell and featuring the Warsaw Village Band [Poland / USA] Chutzpah! 2012 opens with an extraordinary event: the world premiere of a musical and theatrical adaption of author Joseph Skibell’s masterpiece novel, A Blessing on the Moon. This new music-theatre experience combines imaginative and physical theatricality with a fiery, folk-infused score that brings Skibell’s daring and original story to life. Andy Teirstein’s composition joins with the glorious timbres and galloping percussion of the Warsaw Village Band and a cast of five accomplished singer/actors under the spell of Jim Calder’s direction. A Blessing on the Moon; The Colour of Poison Berries is the surreal and magical tale of Chaim Skibelski. It follows Chaim’s wandering search for an afterlife following his violent death at the hands of a German soldier in wartime Poland. On his travels, he is sometimes accompanied by his Rabbi who is now a crow. This mystical story is a haunting evocation of the Polish Holocaust experience and a journey towards peace and wisdom. The music, which ranges from Polish folk/roots to cabaret, adds nuance to every line spoken—and combines with movement to beautifully explore the edges of magic realism contained in the words of this epic narrative. Andy Teirstein’s work is inspired by a rich and diverse range of folk and roots music, and is described by The New York Times and Village Voice as “magical,” “ingenious,” and “superbly crafted.” The six-member Warsaw Village Band is considered among the most important and accomplished musical ambassadors of European culture today. Their modern brand of traditional folk music has garnered BBC Radio Awards and a Grammy nomination, among a raft of other accolades. Joseph Skibell’s 1997 debut novel A Blessing on the Moon was named one of the year’s best by Publisher’s Weekly, Le Monde and Amazon.com. He has received awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as the Sami Rohr Award in Jewish Literature. His work has been translated into many languages, most recently Ido and Chinese.
