Description:
It’s 1901. A deeply divided America, like the rest of the globe, is teetering on the brink of war. Politicians are manipulating the facts to curry public favor, and the media is spinning the public into a partisan-fueled frenzy, as our country is deciding its moral and philosophical destiny. Sound familiar? We think so, too. Even though it’s set at the turn of the 20th century, In the Assassins' Garden feels as relevant and vital as the morning news. Asheville-area playwright David Brendan Hopes examines our country’s values with ferocity and abandon, bringing new dimension to familiar icons such as Presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt, news publisher William Randolph Hearst, and feminist/political activist Emma Goldman. The play examines an important moment in historical time, and, in doing so, asks very modern questions about the nature of government, rights, freedom, and even the idea of country itself. In the Assassins' Garden is smoldering historical look at an America riven by partisan politics, flirting with socialism, and galvanized by a swiftly rising feminist movement. Seemingly contemporary, this historical play looks at the chaotic and frenzied era of the assassination of William McKinley, the 25th President of the United States. IN THE ASSASSINS' GARDEN runs June 14th – 30th at The Magnetic Theatre, located at 375 Depot Street in the River Arts District. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $20 for General Admission and $10 for students. All tickets are subject to a $3 ticketing fee. For more information, please visit www.themagnetictheatre.org.

“This fight is not over. So long as one person has breath in his soul to cry out freedom — freedom livesǃ”
– Robin Hood

 
With King Richard being held captive in Austria, Robin Hood and the Merry Men must continue to protect the people against Prince John’s unjust rule, which is being brutally enforced by Robin’s archenemy, Cedric. Meanwhile, a spy has been planted amongst the Merry Men, and the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham and his wife, Gertrude, have devised a plot to wed Maid Marian to Gregory of Gisbourne (the missing and cowardly evil twin brother to Sir Guy of Gisbourne) in order to gain control of her estate.



Join us as this epic tale of Robin Hood continues with this exhilarating new adventure that brings Sherwood once more to the Montford stageǃ

Description:
With his super slick slide guitar sound and a husky voice that is sexy and heartfelt, this young Virginia bluesman is considered one of the top blues soloists in the world. Eli was born in a Blue Ridge Mountain hollow full of “old cars, chain-saws, and guitars.” Radio still reigned, and telephones and television failed. He began playing gospel at revivals when he was 15, and still never forgets to “take you to church” at some moment in his performance today. Eli’s career was launched when he opened for B.B. King at the Paramont Theatre to a standing ovation and was featured in Guitar Player Magazine. Today, he tours throughout the United States and internationally with venues ranging from the Kennedy Center and the Library of Congress, to B.B .King’s Night Club of NYC. Known for his adrenalized performances, original compositions, and brilliant guitar playing, Eli Cook is revolutionizing the Blues experience for the 21st century. Described as “the best blues singer of his generation: (All Music Guide), and “one of the top three blues soloists worldwide” (Blues Matters Magazine), he is equal master of slide and twelve-string guitar. Eli explodes the Blues horizon. There are no boundaries, no stop signs. With fresh arrangements of classics by Skip James, John Hurt, Elmore James, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as his own critically-acclaimed words from 7 recorded albums, Eli opens the door for you to enter a dimension of blues guitar-playing never before seen in the musical world.
