Singer. Actor. Director. Educator.
Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre (9/23-11/3)
Ms. Elk appears as "The Whore" in HELLO AGAIN. Suggested by the 1897 play LA RONDE by Arthur Schnitzler, Michael John LaChiusa's "ballet of words" details a daisy chain of sexual encounters and love affairs among ten characters in ten scenes, with each scene of the musical in a different decade of the 20th century and in a non-chronological order. Time marches on, but the characters don’t age.
Hildegarde: An Unfinished Revolution
LIVE ALBUM RECORDING at Sleeping Village (12/8 @ 7:30pm)
Ms. Elk appears as God The Creator in Reddyk and Krupp's ground-breaking new rock opera, Hildegard — An Unfinished Revolution, a concept album about the latter 40 years of the life of Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th-century abbess and someday-saint who was a composer, philosopher, visionary, and pre-Reformation reformer. The musical tells her story through her own music, remixed and reworked into modern pop arrangements.
