Groundbreaking 19th-century American lawyer Belva Ann Lockwood, the first woman to argue a case before the Supreme Court, grapples with her decision to run for President of the United States in the 1884 election.
The premiere event kicks off with Jacey Powers of Feminist Cocktail Hour sharing the Belva-dka Lockwood Lemon Fizz signature cocktail recipe, seasoned with a short history of Ms. Lockwood’s contributions to the historical record.
The Fall 2020 series will feature six original short works from a variety of artists, including four pieces filmed on location during a September residency at the Goodwill Theatre, an unrenovated proscenium theater in Johnson City, NY that originally opened 1920, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Launched in August 2020 with the music video The Answer – Black America’s unrequited love letter from InnissENT – Prospect’s VISION Series is a new initiative continuing the company’s mission of creating and presenting original musical theater works by emerging artists while public gatherings are on pause.
The resident production and design team at the Goodwill Theatre included Production and Projection Designer Lianne Arnold, Lighting Designer Adam Honoré, Sound Designer and Audio Engineer Marián Gómez Villota, and Production Manager Josh Cape.
During Prospect’s September residency at the Goodwill Theatre (Chief Executive Officer: Naima Kradjian) located outside of Binghamton, NY, health and safety needs were generously sponsored by United Health Services, which included regular COVID testing under the guidance of Health Safety Supervisor, RN Megan Farmer.
BSN Prospect’s VISION Series is a music-theater-on-film initiative made possible with leadership project support from Leonard Majzlin, and by Somerled Arts.
