C'mon Down to Arena Stage

Check out Arena Stage's new song for our 2013/14 Season! Lyrics below:

Chorus
Come on down to Arena Stage The A to the R to the E-N-A, hey!
You might not see Kanye or Kim K
But you're gonna see some stars at Arena Stage
Come on down to Arena Stage The A to the R to the E-N-A, hey!
Might not see Jay Z or Beyonce
But you're gonna see some stars at Arena Stage

Verse
The first show of the season
We're gonna give you a star that you can believe in
Because she's well seasoned
Yes, I'm talkin' about Estelle Parsons
She's in the show, so it's gonna be awesome
The play is called The Velocity of Autumn
Get ya tickets now you'll be happy that you bought 'em
It's directed by Molly, not the drug, Molly Smith
So it's sure to be a show that you'll love 'n shouldn't miss
Estelle plays a lady who's just a little crazy
Who wants to blow-up her crib and push up daisies
And a Tony-winning fella named Stephen Spinella
Is also in the show so it'll be stellar

The next play that you should not miss
Is written by a man who helmed a Broadway hit Motown!
I'm speaking of Charles Randolph-Wright
So Love in Afghanistan is sure to be tight
Me and Charles go back just like rockin' chairs
This show will rock the Cradle like a fly au pair

Next up, in the place to be
Maurice Hines is Tappin' Thru Life, effortlessly
In the show he gives props to his brother Gregory
And he's joined by two other brothers, Manzari
If ya miss the show, ya gonna be so sorry
You're gonna feel like ya played yourself out, Atari

Yo, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?
(Sidney Poitier?), no but the show is still a winner
The star is the dude who wore Gordon Gartrelle
So trust me when I say ya gonna feel it like Braille
(Stevie Wonder?), no Malcolm Jamal-Warner
He's gonna bring the thunder, make it hot like a sauna
You know Malcolm from the Cosby Show
But don't call him Theo, just keep it cool, ya know?

Chorus

This next piece is all the way live
Written and performed by Daniel Beaty with much pride
It's called The Tallest Tree in the Forest
And it's gonna be kickin' like a Broadway Chorus
It's the true story of Paul Robeson
Shepherded by the acclaimed Moises Kaufman
Daniel's talent is gonna make ya head spin
'Cause that cat crafts words like a new Langston

Then Kathleen Turner's gonna be Mother Courage
Safe to say that everyone is gonna love it
You know Kathleen from classic movies, no fluff
And she's got a great voice that's sexy and tough
And Arena favorite Nicolas Rodriguez is also in the show so it'll be cool and prestigious

The play after that will mesmerize
It's by Laurence Wright, he won a Pulitzer Prize
It's called Camp David, based off the real place
And the story occurs over thirteen days
President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn
Host two heads of state, one is Egyptian
That's Anwar Sadat and Prime Minister Begin
Begin is Israeli, this play is nitroglycerin




Then we have a show that's far from blasé
It's the record-breaking hit Smokey Joe's Cafe
It's the same director from One Night with Janis Joplin
So you know this show is gonna be rockin'
And I have a star from the show right beside me
Nova give 'em a taste, ya pipes are so mighty

This is American Theater but there ain't no drama
We'll save you a seat next to Michelle and Obama

Chorus
