Performing Arts Series: Rinde Eckert

A theatrical alchemy of a lifetime of creations.

Rinde Eckert
My Fools: A Life in Song

Fri-Sat | Oct 6-7, 2017 | 8 PM | Hepburn Teaching Theater, Goodhart Hall

Pulitzer Prize finalist and GRAMMY® Award-winner Rinde Eckert brought a mash-up evening of music and characters from his 30 years of theater, experimental opera, and multidisciplinary creations. On a 9,000-mile cross-country road trip, Eckert has evolved My Fools through performances in living rooms and theaters, museums, and universities. Opening up his artistic archive of past works, he re-animated smart, clownish, driven, and doomed characters—a masterly blend of the broadly comedic, tragic and austere.
