THE CALAMITY, a new play by Christopher Wall with music by Howard Fishman, will have a workshop showing on Thursday, November 13th, at 7:30 PM at The Gym at Judson, 243 Thompson Street in New York City, part of the Playwright Realm’s Next Edition Festival.
Directed by Robert Ross Parker and featuring Ryan McCarthy, Matt Citron, Colleen Werthmann & Jamie Ann Romero, THE CALAMITY takes place as a deadly plague sweeps across the country, spawning an epidemic of paranoia and fear. When one small town shuts its doors to the outside world, its residents realize that the cost of survival may be higher than they thought. Will they trade their freedoms, their loyalties to one another, and their dignity to survive?
Howard and his band embark on a Northeast tour next month, performing his Basmenet Tapes Project in select theaters in New England. The tour coincides with the release of the complete, original Basement Tapes, recorded by Bob Dylan and The Band in 1967 -- music that has been bootlegged for almost forty years, and the inspiration behind Howard's project.

Howard will make his Nashville, TN debut on Friday, September 19 when he appears as a featured performer at this year's Americana Music Festival! Howard will be joined by his NYC cohorts Kenny Bentley on sousaphone, Roland Barner on trombone, and special guests Ross Holmes on violin and Marcus Finnie on drums for the 8pm concert.
On Sunday, July 6, at the Bentley Theater in the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, Howard's theater work-in-progress "A STAR HAS BURNT MY EYE: THE STRANGE CASE OF CONNIE CONVERSE" will have a public outing as part of this year's VOX THEATER FESTIVAL.
The most current iteration of the piece features Howard performing alongside fellow NYC music scenesters Jean Rohe, Charlotte Mundy and Liam Robinson, directed by Sarah Hughes.
