My new One-man show is up and running and I’m thrilled with the response. It’s been really rewarding to me to see that it stimulates a good discussion after and sometimes during each show! Southern Ontario this fall and then points East and West after Christmas. Here’s the official press release:
Before the last federal election, songwriter/activist James Gordon barnstormed his way across the country with his hugely successful one-man show “Stephen Harper: the Musical”.
It worked. You’re welcome.
Now he’s back with his “Emergency Climate Musical” : a ninety-minute theatrical investigation of what surely is THE issue in these uncertain times. Filled with compelling songs, videos, images, stories, rants, laughter, tears, audience participation, a creepy puppet and some concrete ways to face this crisis, James promises to entertain, inform, and leave you with homework.
Follow along as he outlines his premise that we need a total political,
societal and economic make-over to face the incredible challenge ahead.
This time he’s got the cred for the job: James moonlights as a Guelph City Councillor, where he’s introduced climate change motions, and he’s a member of the National Climate Leadership Caucus.”
I’ve deliberately designed this production so it can fit anywhere… in the last month I’ve done it in a house, a church, a night club, a college campus, and more. I’m pretty self-contained with it, and I’ve been offering the show as a 50/50 fundraiser for non-profit environmental activist groups. You’ll raise some funds, I’ll make some too, awareness will be raised- it’s a win win! If you can think of anywhere in your community where this might fit… let my manager Braden Phelan know at firstname.lastname@example.org
