Dorset Theatre Festival’s season continues with “Back Together Again: The Music of Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway,” a new concert featuring Christina Acosta Robinson and Ken Robinson.

Friends since their college days, Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway soared to the top of the Billboard charts as one of the most cherished and mellifluous duos in music history, recording some of the most adored duets of all time like, "Where Is The Love" and "The Closer I Get To You."

Now, Broadway performers, and husband-and-wife, Christina Acosta Robinson and Ken Robinson, are bringing the love together again for a concert of the pair’s iconic hits. Christina Acosta Robinson and Ken Robinson shared the Broadway stage two years ago in “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical.” They join us this morning.

For the production, Edmund Rostand’s classic text has been newly adapted from its original French verse into English (still verse) by long-working playwriting-maestro Martin Crimp. James McAvoy embodies the title character wholly and imbues the brilliant wordsmith he plays with humor and humanity. The swagger of this Cyrano is different and the entire story feels - if not new - more urgent. The production is stealthy in its minimalism and inspiring in its palpable adoration of language.Director Jamie Lloyd and actor James McAvoy join us.
