SOLD OUT SOLD OUT SOLD OUT 

Selections from "In The Green: Hildegard Von Bingen" - Emerging Off-Broadway star (Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812; Bedbugs!!; Brooklynite) Grace McLean performs her in-progress pop opera project.

Called "electrifying" by The Huffington Post and "spectacular" by The New York Times, Grace McLean is a multi-hyphenate actress-composer-singer-writer-teacher on the rise. In addition to performing in Off-Broadway hits like Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 and Bedbugs!!!, Grace also makes time for her acclaimed original music, both as a solo artist and with her band Grace McLean & Them Apples. With a sound that combines Regina Spektor's quirkiness, Nellie McKay's jazz sensibilities, Fiona Apple's irreverence, Kimbra's sass and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs' rhythm, McLean adds up to one beautiful weirdo. Manhattan User's Guide writes, "this pop and jazz singer writes seriously infectious melodies with seriously antic lyrics. Her voice can raise the roof, or she can slide off a note and break your heart." 

In the Green is a musical inspired by the early life of German mystic and abbess Hildegard von Bingen and her formative ascetic years. For three decades, Von Bingen was locked in a cell with an anchoress, Jutta von Sponheim, her mentor and caretaker. Both women experienced violent divine visions during their extended period of confinement together, which only ended upon Jutta's death. Hildegard went on to live for another forty plus years and became an important figure in medieval Europe. Von Bingen communicated with Emperors and Popes, preached to lay people around the Rhineland (unheard of even now for women in the church), performed an exorcism and wrote the first western opera.



Uncharted is a concert series featuring high-profile local artists debuting first-time performances of new work or new collaborations. The Uncharted concert season covers a broad selection of performative genres, from jazz to traditional folk, electronic to classical, cabaret to tap dance. Performances for Uncharted take place every Thursday from March 24 to May 12. 

 "The Uncharted series was founded as a safe space for artists to take risks," says series curator Jennie Wasserman, formerly of SFJAZZ, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Joe's Pub and Carnegie Hall. "Last season's collection of sold-out concerts proved that audiences are always excited to hear something new from their favorite performers. That success has emboldened us to vary our lineup even further. Greenwich Village is one of America's oldest and most successful social melting pots; reflecting the neighborhood's artistic excellence and diversity is one of the goals of our programming."
