Elevada

Sponsored by: Yale Repertory Theater

New York City. Right now. Ramona’s going on lots of first dates but is intentionally sabotaging her chances for a second. Khalil, a social media superstar, is about to close a huge deal that will take him completely off the market. They’ll do anything to float above their own lives, even as fate tries to pull them both back down to earth. Elevada is a warm, witty, and wise romantic comedy about the fear of being alone—and the fear of not being alone.

A finalist for the 2014 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, Elevada marks the Yale Rep debut of Sheila Callaghan, “a gutsy writer with a gift for creating vivid images rooted in the emotional life of her characters” (The New York Times), whose plays include That Pretty Pretty; or, The Rape Play and Roadkill Confidential. The world premiere of Elevada is directed by Jackson Gay, who has staged These Paper Bullets! and The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow at Yale Rep.

Sponsored by: Yale Repertory Theatre

THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE
By BERTOLT BRECHT
Directed by LIZ DIAMOND

March 20-April 11, 2015
University Theatre (222 York Street)

About The Caucasian Chalk Circle

In the war-torn country of Grusinia, a young servant named Grusha rescues the abandoned baby of a deposed Governor and raises him as her own. Years later, the ruler’s wife returns to reclaim her child—and the two mothers bring their case before a cynical, battle-weary judge. An epic fable set against the harrowing backdrop of civil war, The Caucasian Chalk Circle puts the competing claims of law and justice, of blood and love, to the ultimate test.

OBIE Award winning Resident Director Liz Diamond (The Winter’s Tale, Happy Now?, Saint Joan of the Stockyards) returns to Yale Rep with a new production of the great 20th-century poet-playwright Bertolt Brecht’s theatrical, lyrical, and bitingly satiric masterpiece, The Caucasian Chalk Circle.

Fishing CT’s First Annual Ice Fishing Tournament

Sponsored by: Fishing Northeast

www.fishingnortheast.net
                                       
Fishing Northeast Presents “The First Annual Fishing CT Ice Fishing Tournament”

Fishing Northeast has announced plans to have its first ever fishing tournament to take place on the ice of Wethersfield Cove in Wethersfield, CT on Saturday, February 21, 2015 from 8am-2pm. The event is open to the first 100 paid registrants and is open to members and non-members of the Facebook group, Fishing CT. The entry fee is $25 for adults (16+) and $10 for youths (15 and under). Cash prizes for the top 3 fish weighed at the officials registration table with amounts to be determined by the actual number of participants. For a complete list of rules, please visit http://www.fishingnortheast.net/wp/icerules/

About Fishing Northeast:

FishingNortheast.net is a website created by Scott Garland, the founder of Facebook fishing groups Fishing CT, Fishing RI, Fishing MA, Fishing NY, Fishing NH, Fishing VT and Fishing ME. Now a parent of two boys and less time to be on the water, Scott created Fishing CT as a means to stay connected to the fishing world, using the stories and photos to continue enjoying his love for fishing. As Fishing CT grew there was a call among members from other states to have similar groups so Scott created the other groups and eventually the website to bring the northeast fishing community and businesses together in one place. Fishing CT has been featured on FoxCT61 news for helping find a stolen boat. They also stay in touch with Connecticut DEEP on a regular basis, keeping up with changing regulations as well as current news events throughout the fisheries in the State of Connecticut. As these other groups grow to the numbers of Fishing CT (currently 6,487 members and growing daily) we will be involved with each state’s Department of Fish and Games.

Renovating Saarinen’s Ingalls Hockey Rink

Sponsored by: Docomomo US

Eero Saarinen’s David S. Ingalls Hockey Rink on the Yale University campus “is deliberately not an ordinary building.” Visually compelling in its sculptural forms, the structure is composed of a huge 300-foot parabolic arch held in place by a complex tension grid of cables. As the building neared its 50th anniversary, Yale commissioned Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates to direct the refurbishment, updates and building expansion to address the needs of the current and future Yale Hockey Program while preserving this Architectural Landmark.

Ingalls Rink was completed in 1958 and renovated in 2009 by KRJDA, the successor firm to the Saarinen practice. In their renovation and refurbishment of the fondly referred to “Yale Whale”, KRJDA drew on archived sketches and former Saarinen employees to completely update and add much needed additional space with minimal disturbance to the original design. In addition to the underground extension, the rink received a new playing surface, a modern media and broadcasting area, and a new insulated roof was installed while preserving the original oak roof timbers.

This special full-day tour and hockey game offers guests a unique perspective to understand the structure from the perspective of its designers, its players and the people who maintain and care for the site. The day’s speakers include Wesley Kavanagh, Principal, KRJDA, Wayne Dean, Senior Associate Athletics Director for Rink Operations/Sports, and Alice Raucher, AIA Senior Architect/Major Projects Planner, Yale University Planning. The tour includes exterior and interior spaces including inner team spaces, a special tour of the KRJDA offices, pizza break at New Haven’s collegiate spot, Wall Street Pizza, and will conclude with the Yale Women’s Hockey team against Princeton University. Transportation to New Haven is not included but a limited number of spaces are available to car pool to and from the New Haven train station. Details and tickets can be found here: www.docomomo-us.org

DETAILS
Saturday, February 21, 2015 12:00 PM
Tickets: $40 Members/$45 Non-Members

The Devil’s Cormorant Lecture & Book Signing w/ Richard King

Sponsored by: Connecticut River Museum, A Place Called Hope

Author Richard King will give a talk about his latest book, The Devil’s Cormorant: A Natural History. Evolution has crafted the only creature on Earth that can migrate the length of a continent, dive and hunt deep underwater, perch comfortably on a branch or a wire, walk on land, climb up cliff faces, feed on thousands of different species, and live beside both fresh and salt water in a vast global range of temperatures and altitudes, often in close proximity to man. 
    Long a symbol of gluttony, greed, bad luck, and evil, the cormorant has led a troubled existence in human history, myth, and literature. The birds have been prized as a source of mineral wealth in Peru, hunted to extinction in the Arctic, trained by the Japanese to catch fish, demonized by Milton in Paradise Lost, and reviled, despised, and exterminated by sport and commercial fishermen from Israel to Indianapolis, Toronto to Tierra del Fuego. In The Devil’s Cormorant, Richard King takes us back in time and around the world to show us the history, nature, ecology, and economy of the world’s most misunderstood waterfowl.
After the talk, Mr. King will be happy to sign copies of his book. The book is available for sale in the Museum Shop.
