ETC launches the 2017-18 Season with a world-premiere adaptation of Woody Allen’s 1992 groundbreaking film. A witty and urbane comic-drama, Husbands and Wives follows two couples, facing middle age squarely in the face, who find themselves questioning their faltering marriages. Allen’s sardonic humor and razor-sharp insight permeate this story of frenetic coupling and un-coupling.
By Lauren Gunderson & Margot Melcon
Directed by Andrew Barnicle

A sensation in the 1920s through the 1950s, international jazz and blues artist Alberta Hunter performed on Broadway and in clubs across the US and Europe. After the death of her beloved mother, she set aside her life as an artist to help others as a hospital nurse. Forced to retire at the age of 82, she once again stormed the stage with her unique style and salty repartee. Cookin’ at the Cookery brings Alberta’s extraordinary life to the stage, featuring blues hits such as “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Darktown Strutters Ball,” performed by a live, on-stage band.
