The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council’s Readers’ Theater series will be ringing in the new year with Clara by Leonard Goodisman, a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of composer Robert Schumann and his wife Clara. This live reading is on Monday, January 24 at 7 pm in the Ballinger Room at Shoreline Center.

Readers’ Theater productions are presented by a talented group of readers who are selected to work with the new plays program. Readings will be followed by cookies, coffee, and a discussion with the cast, playwright and audience.

More on Clara
Clara provides us a voyeuristic look into the world of classical music and what goes on behind the scenes with the musicians and composers. This script gives us a chance to meet Clara and Robert Schumann and their associates. 

Robert Schumann, sometimes known as Robert Alexander Schumann, (8 June 1810 – 29 July 1856) was a German composer, aesthete and influential music critic. He is regarded as one of the greatest and most representative composers of the Romantic era. On one occasion, accompanying his wife, Clara, an accomplished pianist, on a concert tour in Russia, Schumann was asked whether 'he too was a musician'. He was to remain sensitive to his wife's greater international acclaim as a pianist. Playwright Leonard Goodisman has brought these interesting historical figures to life in this play.
