If you can't go to the National Theatre in London, catch one of their productions -- like A Small Family Business -- streaming live to the big screen at Irvine Barclay Theatre. Penned by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval), A Small Family Business premiered at the National Theatre in 1987 and scored the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play. Jack McCracken's a man of principle in a corrupt world ... until he takes over his father-in-law's business. Soon after, a private detective armed with some compromising information approaches him, and Jack's integrity fades away as he discovers there are a few too many thieves and adulterers in his extended family.

This was a great concert. However, Suzanne mentioned several times she couldn't see the audience. To me that meant she wanted a more intimate environment. I think the house lights should have been turned up a little bit for her. That said, Suzanne, the music and her musicians were great. Suzanne also graciously came to the lobby after the concert to sign autographs and pose for pictures. Nice touch.
Quotes & Highlights
With her sultry voice, Suzanne Vega seamlessly joins her poetry and contemporary folk song with a sound that is utterly unique and identifiable to her alone. A pioneer among singer-songwriters, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s. Her international hit songs “Luka” and “Tom’s Diner” have now both entered the cultural vernacular. In performances devoid of outward drama that nevertheless convey deep emotion, Vega sings in a distinctive, clear vibrato-less voice described by The New York Times as conveying an “inviolable purity of heart tinged with mystery and a faraway melancholy.”
