Second Time Around:
A Duet for Cello and Storyteller
Featuring Joan Jeanrenaud & Charlie Varon
An exciting new collaboration between The Marsh’s Charlie Varon
and renowned cellist Joan Jeanrenaud (of Kronos Quartet fame)
Second Time Around is the next in Charlie Varon’s cycle of fictional tales about smart old people. Ben Rosenau is being videotaped for a high school history project. What to tell the kid? Some old war stories about flying missions against the Nazis? Offer advice about what it is to be a man? The Greatest Generation meets the iPhone generation.
Joan Jeanrenaud is known around the world for her 20 years as cellist of the Kronos Quartet. Charlie Varon is creator of the hit shows Rush Limbaugh in Night School, People’s Violin and Feisty Old Jew. Under the direction of David Ford, they’ve adapted Charlie’s story into a fully-scored duet for cello and storyteller.
