A Little Journey, set on a westbound train leaving New York City, transports us to another world. A proud, but heartsick young woman feels like she's come to the end of the line until she realizes that a second chance for happiness is just across the aisle. Ten strangers on a train take the ride of their lives in A Little Journey by Rachel Crothers (author of Susan and God, seen at the Mint in 2006).  This heartfelt human comedy, one of Crothers’ best, was nominated for the first Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1918.

“A compelling human story of love and sorrow” was how the Washington Post greeted the play, which, in the grand tradition of travelogues, showcases an eccentric and charming array of passengers:

There’s the auburn-topped lady from New York, excruciatingly funny in her ultra-sophistication and yet human.  There are two young college lads, awkward, yet lovable.  There’s the sweet young girl, traveling with her deaf grandma; there is the self-centered plutocrat who travels in the drawing room; there is a mother—an unmarried mother; and there are Jim West, the big-hearted Westerner, and Julie Rutherford, the girl who finds real life after having been hedged about and bound by conventions and traditions.

Julie’s down on her luck, and Jim is a lonely rancher who’s survived his own troubled life journey. Jim falls in love, but Julie sinks deeper into despair…until a dangerous detour gives them an unexpected chance at happiness.

“A simple moving story deftly and very convincingly told” wrote John Corbin in the New York Times, while in the New York World, Charles Darnton deemed the play “by far the finest play Miss Crothers has written” praising its “simple human feeling.”

Achieving that “simple human feeling” was Crothers’ goal.  She was inspired to write the play while riding on a train, struck by how travel “brought together such characters as I required.”

This Little Journey happens somewhere every day, and it means merely a bundle of humanity tied together by circumstances, each part of the bundle struggling to keep itself free and separate by the force of its own tremendous ego, but finally melted into a common whole by forces stronger than selfishness.

Independent: May 31, 2019
Stream/Buy on Bandcamp
Stream it on Spotify

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
