5500 Euro für das Keller Theatre

We are immensely grateful and happy for this amazing support from "Soroptimist International Club Giessen"
In these somewhat tough (Corona-) times, when we can't provide shows to a live-audience, we are, like most cultural endeavors, dependant on support from outside to keep us afloat and ready for further productions. Every little helps, but it's the big chunks that help us breathe and give a sense of security.

We had a great night last October with all these wonderful women, the wine, the cheese and our own little online-play - and to be rewarded with this donation gives us a positive outlook for 2022: We've currently two productions in the making!
Thanks again to everybody involved - and we hope to see you soon, in person!

About the play:
A Song at Twilight from Suite in Three Keys

by Noël Coward

This bittersweet comedy (for four actors) is the story of a cosmopolitan author, Hugo, caught in his declining years between two women, one being his wife of twenty years, the other, one of his former loves. The former flame, Carlotta, produces some old love letters which she is about to turn over to a biographer. Hugo is dead set against it, for it would compromise his reputation. Carlotta then plays her trump card, which is even more threatening.

It's time to say good-bye to a wonderful production. Thanks to our audience, to everyone who donated to the Keller Theatre and to the Kulturamt Gießen for having us.
And last but not least, a few lines from Rosemary Bock, who directed THE SECRET LIVES OF HENRY AND ALICE:
"It's so good we made it back onstage at last. Thanks to David Tristram - Playwright for making us laugh, to Linda and Stefan for living with Alice and Henry for what must have felt like forever; Marty for jumping in as co-director; and the Keller dream teams (orga, PR, IT, creative, tech, front-of-house, cake and cookie bakers...) for making it all happen over the past year. Goodbye, Secret Lives, and though you really pushed us hard, thanks for making our lives in Corona times so much better."

"Tea at Five" opens next week on 10 September 🥳
🎟️ http://tickets.keller-theatre.de🎟️
Here's how Warren Beatty payed tribute to Katharine Hepburn:

My one-way ”love affair” with her began when I was 9 and saw a reissue of The Philadelphia Story. No doubt it had something to do with her being a slim, rock-ribbed, highly principled Northeastern WASP. My mother was too. Hepburn was a progressive with a feminist mother and a doctor father. My mother was too. She liked to act. My mother did too. Her name was Katharine. My mother’s was Kathlyn.
Through brief and jovial encounters with her in the ’60s and ’70s, my passion remained unrequited. The closest I came to what I could pretend to myself was reciprocation was in 1977 when she let me talk her into seeing a well-known dermatologist about her extremely sun-sensitive but beautiful skin.
In the fall of ’93, having become a willing object of ridicule and sympathy to my associates in my fervent pursuit of her, I overcame a host of obstacles and persuaded her to do Love Affair with me and my amused wife, Annette. It turned out to be her last movie.
She was in her late 80s. Okay, she might’ve had some trouble moving around or remembering things, but she never seemed a day over 40 to me…or 20.
Removing her makeup after her final day, she looked over and caught me sitting and staring at her, besotted.
She blinked. ”You should stay with me when you come to New York.”
”Stay with you?” I asked, hoping to have heard her correctly.
”Yes,” she said. ”You and Annette should stay with me.”
”Oh,” I said. ”Of course, of course. Me and Annette. Thank you.” But I could have gone on staring at her for two days.
Two days later, in fact, the house we had found for her just a stone’s throw from our own was demolished by the Northridge earthquake. She had returned to New York only hours before. Even the Northridge earthquake knew better than to mess around with Katharine Hepburn.
She was the longest-lived survivor of a generation of movie actors between 1930 and 1950 who were seen always on screens much larger than life. The generation before her had been silent. The one following her would be seen more often on screens much smaller than life.
In earlier days, privacy was a possibility for this carefully carefree, controlling woman, this symbol of perpetual integrity who told me she went out to restaurants only three times after becoming famous (that means in 71 years) and, because he wasn’t divorced, never once appeared in public with the man who for 26 years was her great love.
She never relinquished responsibility for what she considered her image.
Why invade her privacy now? It’s better just to love her and look at her.
Often.

Gießen! 🇩🇪 Last night was wonderful.🙌 Thank you for making my first ever show in Germany an absolute joy! I had such a great time playing for you guys and meeting you all after the show. Truly a night to remember! Can’t thank Adam Barnes enough for bringing me along and to all of the staff at The Keller Theatre who were fantastic and hilarious. We had fun. ☺️🙏💚
Das Jahr begann rasant mit vielen schönen Projekten - hauptsächlich aus der Welt der Markenstrategie. Heute freue ich mich ganz besonders mit dem Ensemble des The Keller Theatres, das um 19:30 Uhr die Premiere seiner Inszenierung von Harold Pinters "The Lover" in feiern wird. Während der Proben war ich mit der Leica dabei und habe eine Fotoreportage erstellt. Auch das Design, das sich unter anderem auf den Postern wiederfindet, stammt von mir. Hier erfahrt ihr mehr über die Entstehungsgeschichte und das, was folgt: https://www.markenflora.com/2019/02/design-fotoreportage-keller-theatre-giessen/ ...Eine Information zum Kartenvorverkauf ist natürlich auch enthalten. Für alle, die gerne mal vorbeischauen möchten! — u.a. mit Johanna Ehlers Maria Valentina Kiefer Wade Gonsoulin Sascha Reif Christian Berlitz Christoph Schucht
