The Cleveland Stage Alliance Presents…

“From Cleveland With Love: The Songs of 007”

The songs of the James Bond franchise have often become as celebrated in popular culture as the films themselves. Ranging from Paul McCartney’s rock anthem “Live and Let Die” to Carly Simon’s understated “Nobody Does It Better” and Shirley Bassey’s iconic “Goldfinger” to Adele’s Academy Award winning “Skyfall.” Some of Northeast Ohio’s top talent comes together for two nights to perform new and familiar arrangements of the classic tunes accompanied by a live band. The concerts occur the same week as the highly anticipated release of the newest James Bond film, Spectre.

     “From Cleveland With Love: The Songs of 007” is the third offering in CSA’s new concert series that celebrates various beloved aspects of pop culture in a festive evening of song. Following the current trend set in New York by such popular series’ as “Broadway Sings,” “54 Sings” and others, “CSA Presents…” will utilize a rotating cast of local talent to perform material outside of the musical theater canon, with a theatrical flair!

     The concert is produced by CSA founder Eric Thomas Fancher and local actor/director Joanna May Hunkins, and music directed by Lawrence Wallace. Fancher has appeared onstage at Ensemble Theatre, Lakeland Civic Theatre, Blank Canvas Theatre and most recently at Cain Park. Hunkins is the associate director of The Musical Theater Project and just directed the critically acclaimed production of Godspell at Cain Park. Wallace has music directed at Near West Theatre, Blank Canvas Theatre and True North Cultural Arts.
