In the hours before New Year's Eve, the members of an upper-class family and their lovers arrive at the summer lake house to find they are not alone. The New York Times called Wintertime “a raucous riff on love in its many permutations.” It combines the pathos of Greek drama, the philosophical musings of Chekhov, the romantic quadrangles of Molière, and the ridiculousness of a French farce. Mee's eclectic theatrical style is as rich in heart and truth as it is in chaos and irreverence.

Peak Performances Presents:
From the Top Live
December 13 • 8 p.m.
Alexander Kasser Theater
Shanghai Quartet joins concert pianist, and Peak Performances’ favorite, Christopher O’Riley when he returns with a live recording of NPR's From the Top. The Boston Globe called it “an unpretentious mix of the ridiculous and the sublime…[Featuring] an entertaining, accessible and often inspirational mix of outstanding musical performances, informal interviews, skits and games, the show is a celebration of extraordinary musicians who happen to be teenagers leading fairly normal lives.” From the Top at Peak Performances will feature the talents of 16-year-old cellist Chase Park from Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, and 18 year-old violist Jasper Snow, originally from Houston, Texas, and currently a freshman at Juilliard. The two, along with the Shanghai Quartet, will perform a movement from Johannes Brahms' String Sextet in G major. The program a lso features 13-year-old flutist Audrey Emata from Wallingford, Pa.; and brother-sister pianists Ryan Ferguson and Janice Carissa from Surabaya, Indonesia, currently living in Philadelphia. The whole family will enjoy seeing this beloved radio program come together on the stage.
