BANGOR – There are few tasks more difficult for a performer to execute than holding a stage solo. To be up there under the lights all by yourself – it’s a staggering responsibility. It demands a combination of presence and willpower that requires massive effort to generate and even more effort to maintain. To do this for even a few minutes is an incredible and admirable feat.

Now imagine doing it for an entire show.

That’s what Brianne Beck is doing in “Tell Me on a Sunday,” the latest production from Penobscot Theatre Company. Directed and choreographed by Dominick Varney, this show – with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Don Black – is a one-woman tour de force, a story of ambition and disappointment, both personal and professional. The show runs through January 23 at the Bangor Opera House.

This one-act show is a non-stop musical experience, with Beck vocally carrying the story forward with the help of a three-piece band (one that includes musical director David Madore on keyboards). It’s a story both sweet and sad, one told beautifully through song.

SURRY -  Zoe Weil, humane educator, author and president of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) in Surry, will perform her one-woman show, 'My Ongoing Problems With Kindness: Confessions of MOGO Girl,' on June 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth, 121 Bucksport Rd.

Weil uses personal stories and a delightful wit to admit that living according to the MOGO (MOst GOod) principle to do the most good and least harm to herself, other people, animals and the environment can present unexpectedly humorous hurdles. The performance will resonate with everyone who has found themselves in the wrong lane while trying to do the right thing.
