Seeking to recreate the feeling of the period while underscoring its connection to the modern day, Chronofon Productions is mounting a reprisal of the popular production ’66: Talkin’ Bout My Generation. Centered on the titular year, the show features a talented quartet of storytellers/performers: Bradley Greenwald, Diana Grasselli, Prudence Johnson, and Dan Chouinard. They’ll enact a fictional radio broadcast, playing disc jockeys, commentators, and news reporters as they explore the transformative year in United States history, a period following the assassination of John F. Kennedy but before the succession of further tragedies (punctuated by occasional triumphs) that would define the second half of the decade. Few aspects of American life reflect that year’s curious blend of idealism and disillusionment quite like its compelling music. The quartet, accompanied by guitarist Dean Magraw and bassist Gary Raynor, will perform those songs in richly evocative arrangements.
