"The Plan B Microlounge...was dimly but dramatically lighted....
June Joplin stood in the spotlight, singing sultry. Bob Reid was in the darkness behind her, laying down lily pads on the piano for June to skip across. I was sure we had fallen through the looking glass, or down the rabbit hole or whatever it is that delivers you straight from Carson City to New York or Paris or . . . heaven.”
A 90-minute, 24-song composition for four solo singers, chorus, musicians. mimes, dancers, and street performers. Dedicated to the Glory of God, founded in the beauty and passion of the contemporary Episcopal Eucharist, and inspired by the Sioux prophet Black Elk and his great vision of a Holy Tree that will take root, and flower in our midst, and shelter every living thing in happiness beneath its murmuring leaves.
