|Tiffany Lin's gold toy piano|
3Seasons premieres at On the Boards January 15-17. Friday night's performance is already sold-out. The musicians include Quinton Morris (violin), Tiffany Lin (cello/toy piano), and Stuart McLeod (percussion/electronics).
3Seasons is prompted by Vivaldi's The Four Seasons and high heels. Whim W'Him dancer Jim Kent will play violin during special moments, that is, when he doesn't have a birdcage on his head.
