    The Elephant in the Garden at The Actors Studio of Newburyport
    When
    February 16, 2019 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Actors Studio of Newburyport, 12 Federal St, Newburyport, MA 01950, USA
    Description

    The Elephant in the Garden at The Actors Studio of Newburyport

    In Simon Reades adaptation of Michael Morpurgos novel, a teenage German girl, Elizabeth (Lizzie), is forced to leave Dresden with her mother (Mutti) during World War II when the RAF bomb their city. The play begins on November 9, 1989 as the Berlin wall is being dismantled. The story is told as a memory by Elizabeth.

    Accompanying Lizzie and Mutti on their hurried escape is a young elephant from the city zoo named Marlene (as in Dietrich). On their journey toward safety they pick up some other unexpected refugees. With unfailing charm, "The Elephant In The Garden" makes you forget nationality and see everyone as equal in the catastrophic setting of WWII. The story alters our idea of "the enemy" as love blossoms among the displaced. The instantaneous decisions we must make in times of crisis reveal the true values we hold in our hearts. Forced to flee one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Lizzie and her mom gain access to each other in an extraordinary way.

    We know the outcome of WWII. The end of the current refugee crisis seems less certain. The "Elephant in the Garden" helps us see refugees as individuals. It makes us sympathize, laugh and fall in love with them. This play is a gentle giant itself; it is sweet and innocent, but has an impact on an enormous scale.

    In the words of actor, John David Washington (Black Klansman), "Our hope is in inclusion."

    Rediscovering Italian Classics Cooking Class

    We are pleased to announce a partnership with Milk Street as of September 2018. This is a demonstration-based iteration of Rediscovering Italian Classics.
    Class Description:

    This demonstration-based class is an ode to three great Italian dishes — polenta, risotto and pesto — and the traditional way to make each. We'll make pesto from mountains of basil and a whisper of garlic; polenta from just cornmeal, salt and pepper and without stirring; and brilliantly colored saffron risotto that, again, contains fewer ingredients and requires less work than we thought was needed.

    The key to this class is technique, and we will discuss the very few, but very important, steps to make each dish. There are no tricks or gimmicks in this food; just tradition.

    In class we will explore the three base recipes, and beyond. In addition to saffron risotto, pesto, and soft polenta, we will explore three different vegetable broths from scratch, two additional variations of the risotto; turn leftover risotto into arancini (fried rice-cheese balls), and make a classic tomato-anchovy sauce to ladle over soft, hot polenta.

    Doors open at 6:15pm, class begins promptly at 6:30pm and runs until approximately 8:00pm.

    Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the instructor prepares several dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes.

    Celebratory Sides - Transforming Vegetables: Cooking Class

    We are pleased to announce a partnership with Milk Street as of September 2018. This is a demonstration-based iteration of Celebratory Sides - Transforming Vegetables.
    Class Description:

    Vegetables are the most exciting ingredients in the Milk Street kitchen. They are colorful chameleons under our control, changing texture and flavor according to our whimsy. We can make them shine prepared simply or with decadence; train them to be sweet, sour, bitter, or rich; and coax them to fall away tender from the fork or march crisply across our palates. It's all in how we prepare them. We will show you how to be a vegetable whisperer as we make Sweet Potato Tian, Roasted Cauliflower with Caraway and Buttered Bread Crumbs, Sicilian Orange, Fennel and Caper Salad, and Green Beans with Almonds and Spice. As we cook and eat we will learn all that vegetables have to offer.

    Doors open at 6:15pm, class begins promptly at 6:30pm and runs until approximately 8:00pm.

    Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the instructor prepares three dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes.
