The Storytelling Salon Series presents


Written and performed by JOANNA RUSH

Directed by Lynne Taylor-Corbett


Saturday, June 15th at 5pm

Suggested Donation $25


Joanna Rush has had a long career as a performer starting as a Rockette and On and Off Broadway. More recently she has opted to go it alone in several well received solo shows on a variety of hysterical topics. And now, Rush will take the stage again as she debuts her newest show entitled NO MALARKEY! directed by Tony nominee Lynne Taylor-Corbett.


What is NO MALARKEY! about?


Joanna Rush is Joe Biden’s karmic twin and proud of it. Their careers have been parallel — maybe with a few exceptions. Ex-Rockette, Joanna Rush still does huge fan kicks and Joe did recently fall off his bike, but what they share are tumultuous Catholic upbringings, near death experiences, astrological signs, and a “no malarky” approach to life and the Supreme Court.

Kumara 03Abwcrp Sandra Bargman edit.jpg


From Sanskrit - Khu: 'higher self' / Ma: the Divine Mother / Ra: the Father of Light

       Once upon a time, an African musician, a Classical musician, and a New York City session musician got together to see what would happen.  From note one they found there was a certain magic, an inner harmony to the music they discovered together.  Kumara was thus formed to perform original, transcendent compositions - compositions that have a powerful appeal to our shared humanity.

Sam·i·te (Sæm ē tay) n. 1.a. World-renowned musician, b. Humanitarian, c. Photographer. 2. Born and raised in Uganda. 3. Travels the world bringing his message of peace and hope through the healing power of music. 4. “While performing, I see that people are able to forget their differences and join as one in the moment; my hope is for that moment to last.  If we can make that moment last, the world will be a better place.”

Internationally acclaimed violinist Shem Guibbory is an award winning soloist and chamber musician.  Since 1992, Mr. Guibbory has been a member of the first violin section of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and has appeared as soloist with the New York Philharmonic, the Beethoven Halle Orchestra, the Kansas City Symphony and the Symphony of the New World. He was the original violinist in the Steve Reich Ensemble and has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

Guitarist Sean Harkness is in high demand as a performer/composer on solo guitar, and accompanies an astonishing array of world class vocalists, musicians, and ensembles. Sean’s multiple awards include MAC,  Bistro, and awards. Harkness represents Walden guitars and DR Strings, and has many commercial releases as an artist on Windham Hill Records [BMG/RCA/Sony] and others.


       Eric Wood recorded his first LP release, Letters From the Earth 20 years ago. It reached #6 album of the year in Italy and #11 in the Czech Republic the same year.  After several European tours, he went on to record three more albums, Illustrated Night, Don't Just Dance and Hairpin Curve with T Xiques, Mark Dziuba and Megan Gould.  In the US, Eric shared bills with Richard Thompson, Shawn Colvin and Suzanne Vega.  Letters From the Earth was #9 in Billboard Magazine's 'Year-End Critics Top Ten Picks' (January 3, 1998). The New Yorker called Eric Wood "a compelling singer-songwriter poised for a breakthrough."  These recordings are available on Spotify, YouTube and iTunes.
