The Waterworks Theatre
Company is proud to announce the world premiere of "Voices on the Wind" at the American Renegade Theatre
playing March 31st- April 23rd.
"Voices on the Wind"
takes place during the
final hours of the lives of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, the
two Italian immigrants who were executed in 1927 for the murder of a
paymaster and guard during a Massachusetts robbery. The case
continued to be discussed and dissected throughout the 20th century
including a declaration in 1977 from then Governor Michael Dukakis
that acknowledged that their trial was "permeated by prejudice
against foreigners and hostility toward unorthodox political views
and the conduct of many of the officials involved in the case shed
serious doubt on their willingness and ability to conduct the
prosecution and trial of Sacco and Vanzetti fairly and impartially."
A special opening night
Gala will follow the performance on March 31st. During this event the
Italian Historical Society of America will be honored for their work
in recognizing Italian-Americans and their contributions throughout
American history including a special presentation from Mayor Richard
Performances are at the

Waterworks Mission Statement
Ancient Norse mythology
tells of an ongoing battle between the gods of Asgard and the rock
giants, a war that raged on through time until the days of Ragnarok,
the Twilight of the Gods.
In today's American
theatre we are caught in a battle between our own gods and giants. On
one side we have the amassed army of the Avant-garde theatre. Once a
powerful tool, it has devolved into a series of impotent productions,
with all too few exceptions. The only purpose of these productions
seems to be the feeding of the artist's ego. Audiences leave having
no idea what they just saw or experienced and often feel alienated or
Facing them and trapping
us in the middle is a movement to strip theatre of it's edge. To
oversimplify plays and spoon feed them to the masses. There is no
bite. No edge. And above all no movement of the soul. Somewhere
between the giants and the gods there is theatre that is still
entertaining but thought provoking. Not over the heads of the people,
but not stupified.
