SUNSHINE COLLECTIVE

IS UP TO SOMETHING VERY GOOD

WITH AN ALBUM RELEASE PARTY

FOR 'UP TO SOMETHING GOOD'

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1

ROOM 5, 
143 N. LA BREA AVE.
LOS ANGELES

Sunshine Collective, the pairing of L.A.-based singer/songwriter Stephanie Richards and composer/songwriter/producer Brian Arbuckle, is back with Up To Something Good, their second album of hip and quirky, sunshine pop-meets-retro music with an all-ages appeal. Sunshine Collective is set to celebrate with an intimate, acoustic album release party at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 1 at Room 5, 143 N. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles.
The spotlight at this show will be on all-out fantastic musicianship, with Sunshine Collective's Stephanie Richards on vocals, Brian Arbuckle on guitars and ukulele, multi-instrumentalist Dan Weinstein playing swing violin, jazz trumpet, and trombone, and a soon-to-be-announced, special guest pianist tickling the ivories on the vintage house upright piano.
At their October 1 show, Sunshine Collective will deliver highlighted songs from Up To Something Good, including the album's title track, "I Love You," "Misplaced Love," and "Waiting to Say Hello Again," along with signature tunes from Sunshine Collective's defining, debut album, Wanna Play? To add even more depth to the set, the band will include several of the most-requested singer-songwriter numbers from Stephanie Richards' early pop/rock career, including the alt-country/blues tune "Look At Me Now" and "Not Me," noteworthy for its Tom Petty-meets-Adele feel. Add an unreleased gem, to be performed only at this show -- the dreamlike-yet-urgent "Dream Chaser" -- to complete an unforgettable Sunshine Collective experience.

A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES
A NEW PLAY  BASED ON THE PULITZER PRIZE WINNING NOVEL
TO HAVE WORLD PREMIERE
AT HUNTINGTON THEATRE COMPANY IN BOSTON ON NOVEMBER 11TH, 2015

NICK OFFERMAN TO STAR AS IGNATIUS RILEY
DAVID ESBJORNSON DIRECTS ADAPTATION BY JEFFREY HATCHER


Huntington Theatre Company, the 2013 recipient of the Regional Theatre Tony Award and Boston magazine’s Best Theatre of 2013 and 2014, announced today  the world premiere production of A Confederacy of Dunces, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by John Kennedy Toole, directed by David Esbjornson (Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and All My Sons) and featuring Nick Offerman of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”  Performances will run November 11 – December 13, 2015 at the Huntington’s mainstage, the BU Theatre. 

Nick Offerman will star as the larger-than-life character Ignatius J. Reilly: overweight, arrogant, eccentric, and still living in his mother’s New Orleans home in the 1960s.  Called the Don Quixote of the French Quarter, Ignatius has a singular outlook on life.  His farcical odyssey includes visits to a department store and a strip club, and stints working at a pants factory and as a hot dog vendor.  A Confederacy of Dunces is a hilarious wild ride, filled with colorful characters and comic misadventures.
