WHO'S WHO IN THE CAST

Space Theatre Experiment. He was the recipient of the Villager Award for sound design in 1982 and is very happy to have the opportunity to be working with both Mr. Ernotte and the Vineyard on both the original production of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill and the move to the Westside Arts Theatre.

BAMBI HERRERA (Pepe) made her sage debut in the same role at the Vineyard Theatre. This is her Off-Broadway debut. She wishes to thank her father, Milton, without whom this would not have been possible.

THE VINEYARD, now entering its sixth season, is unique among New York cultural institutions, producing drama, musical theatre, opera, jazz and chamber music concerts. Notable past theatre productions include Goblin Market (nominated for eight Drama Desk Awards and cited as one of the 10 best plays of 1985); Brian Friel's Faith Healer; We're Home, with songs by Bob Merril; John Patrick Shanley's Rockaway; and Alec Wilder -- Clues to a Life, (scheduled to open on London's West End in early 1987). The 1985-86 Vineyard Opera season included the American premiere of Donzetti's Gianni Di Pargi, and the American professional premiere of Martin Y Soler's Una Cosa Rara. Our "Vintage Jazz at the Vineyard" radio series was broadcast nationally by American Public Radio last year, and 13 new one-hour programs are now being readied for broadcast, In the fall of 1987, The Vineyard, currently located in an intimate chamber theatre at 309 East 26th Street, will open a new, larger facility in Zeckendorf Towers on Union Square. We are very grateful to William Zeckendorf, Jr., and 14th Street Union Square Associates for donating this new flexible theatre space, A $1 million capital fundraising drive is now underway to pay for the construction of the new theatre.

It happened in 1983. 

It was a rare and remarkable theatrical experience. Controversial. Provocative. And shocking.

Now, two Academy Award-winning actresses make the Pulitzer Prize-winning play the motion picture event of the year.
