Flashback is one week away…check out this awesome video from one of our final blocking sessions and gives you a sneak peek at what we have in store for the show at the Bloomington Center for the Arts starting June 8!
Welcome to Flashback
This show begins with stuffed peppers. My stepmom, Cyndy would make them every weekend – and they were good, people – blue-ribbon-at-the-state-fair good. To this day, even though Cyndy is gone, whenever I smell the rich, herbal aroma of stuffed peppers, see one behind the counter of deli, or read about them on a restaurant menu, I think of Cyndy: carefully lifting one out of the pyrex with a spatula and a fork to put on my plate. That is what I call a Flashback: something simple that brings back a memory or a story. For me, it’s Cyndy’s stuffed peppers. For others, it might be a butterfly in the garden or the sound of rain on an attic roof. Memories are potent, powerful things.
Not only will you hear the A&K members’ heartwarming and touching personal Flashbacks but we will be honoring the memory of brilliant artists who left us to soon: think Buddy Holly, Patsy Cline, Janis Joplin, John Lennon or Amy Winehouse – artists whose legacy lives far beyond their years on earth.
