Two exciting events coming up for Axial!

The Kennedys
Friday evening, September 22, 2017

On Friday evening, September 22, 2017, at 8 p.m., The Kennedys will perform in a benefit for Axial Theatre at the beautiful Chappaqua Performing Arts Theatre. 

For over two decades, husband and wife Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed the highways and byways of the US and the UK, as a folk/pop duo and as members of Nanci Griffith's Blue Moon Orchestra. As The Kennedys, they have released over a dozen CDs, are longtime core artists on WFUV, and were named Artists-in-Residence at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Their original music is uplifting, encouraging and empowering, and their choice of covers is emblematic of their love for the classic songwriting of Buddy Holly, The Beatles and Bob Dylan. Long time New York City residents, they are regulars at the Clearwater Festival and have played legendary venues including Carnegie Hall, the Beacon Theater and the late lamented Bottom Line.

November 3 through November 19, 2017

Opening on November 3 (continuing weekends through November 19), the premiere of the full-length play, Nectar, written by Katherine Baldwin Eng and directed by Christina Roussos.

An impossibly famous writer lies dying in a great European city. Lovers, past and present, gather together in an absurd and comic summit of the beguiled and heart-broken.
