Grammy Award winning singer Kathy Mattea and her longtime collaborator, guitarist Bill Cooley, have shared one of Nashville’s most musically rich partnerships for over two decades. The duo meets as old friends, welcoming you into The Acoustic Living Room to share songs and stories near and dear to their hearts — including Kathy’s beloved classics such as “18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses,” “Where’ve You Been?,” and many other hits, plus a handful of more eclectic and often requested tunes from her extensive catalogue, and a sprinkling of brand new material, all reinterpreted for the duo format. Her 17 albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel, and Celtic influences, and have garnered multiple CMA, ACM, and Grammy Awards. A genuine storyteller, Kathy draws inspiration from her Appalachian roots and is a torchbearer for often overlooked musical legacies like those of Hazel Dickens and Jean Ritchie. Her most recent album, Calling Me Home, is a collection of songs that celebrates the Appalachian culture of her native West Virginia and expands the vocabulary of acoustic roots music that has always served as her artistic center.
The Great Ocean Adventure
Drawing from over 40 years of experience exploring the world, designing, and studying the ocean realm, environmental speaker Jean-Michel Cousteau provides a wealth of stories and knowledge from his adventurous life. Using his experiences designing artificial floating islands, schools, and environmentally responsible ocean-oriented resorts, Cousteau explains how his formal education in architecture provided him with the theories he has applied to the environment of the water as an oceanographer. Taking audiences on a tour of his childhood dreams of underwater cities to the reality of his accomplished career as an architect, Cousteau's "Great Ocean Adventure" inspires the imaginations and dreams of all who witness it.
The Sustainable Future: Preserve the Oceans, Protect Ourselves
As the founder of the Ocean Futures Society, a marine conservation and education organization, Jean-Michel Cousteau inspires and educates audiences worldwide about the need to act responsibly and preserve the fragile underwater ecosystems that are so intricately tied to all life on earth. Cousteau, who is also on the cutting edge of environmentally responsible architecture, documents the critical connection between humanity and nature, and celebrates the ocean's vital importance to our survival.

DIRECTOR'S NOTE|JERE HODGIN
I am grateful to be part of Montana Rep’s revival of All My Sons, the award-winning play that helped launch the successful and critically acclaimed career of one of America’s greatest twentieth-century playwrights. A uniquely American play, All My Sons established Arthur Miller as a powerful storyteller with keen insight into the struggles of everyday men and women. Miller’s intense psychological probing and honest portrayals reveal the depth of his understanding and compassion.
All My Sons, written about the post-World War II experiences of my father’s generation, continues to resonate with today’s audiences. I first encountered this play in the years after the Vietnam conflict and recently saw the Broadway hit revival as news reports were flooded with moving stories of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The power of Miller’s story about war’s consequences for both veterans and civilians—of honor and sacrifice, of guilt, honesty, hope, and love—is as relevant today as when the play premiered in 1947.
All My Sons teaches us that as we struggle in the aftermath of war and conflict, compassion and forgiveness provide the only means by which we will heal.
