The Sweet Remains is an unusual band on today’s music scene; three gifted and charismatic singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and three part harmonies that define the band’s sound. When Rich Price (Burlington, VT), Greg Naughton (NYC), and Brian Chartrand (Phoenix, AZ) met for a chance jam-session, the three instantly recognized a musical blend and kinship that would eventually overcome geography and solo-careers to form The Sweet Remains. Their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk-rockers like Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne, and John Mayer while their lush harmonies harken back to super groups like Crosby, Stills and Nash, the Eagles and Simon & Garfunkel. Their debut CD Laurel & Sunset opened to great reviews and the band has been winning the praise of audiences and critics across the U.S. ever since. In 2013 they released their most recent studio album North & Prospect.  “It’s been a long time since three-part harmonies this lush were yoked to songs as melodically gorgeous as these” said The Boston Herald.

It is the classic story told with new twists and turns, as Dracula is seen in deeply shadowing light and illuminating darkness in a new adaptation that restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker’s classic novel to the stage. As Dracula begins to exert an other-worldly will upon the residents of London, they try to solve the mysteries created by the vampire’s machinations. In a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate, they resolve to conquer the would-be vanquisher. Rich with both humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker’s famous vampire. Unique casting choices make this PSU version even more interesting and provocative.

Throughout the continent of Africa, people use cloth to speak for them. Whether the fabric represents religious affiliation, age, class status, ethnic membership, or political association, what one wears is one’s identity. Woven or dyed, imported or locally produced, wrapped, tied, or tailored—all clothing speaks clearly in the many African languages. Demonstrating ancient traditions or contemporary fads, African peoples use cloth to celebrate the vibrancy of life’s rituals from birth to death. Co-curated by Philip Peek, professor emeritus of anthropology at Drew University, and Anthropology of Religion, Ritual, and Myth students.
