Chronofon is a confluence of four Minnesota performing artists – Dan Chouinard, Diana Grasselli, Bradley Greenwald, and Prudence Johnson—all experienced musicians/actors/writers/producers -who together conceive, research, write and perform musical chronicles of great artists, events, or time periods. The result is dynamic theatrical concerts that work as well on the nightclub stage as in the theatre or the concert hall—poignant, funny, thought-provoking and always beautifully performed. In collaboration with the Friends of the St. Paul Public Library and Open Eye Theatre, and with support from The Minnesota Regional Arts Council, Chronofon has also created Dear Lenny: Bernstein’s Life in Songs and Letters; Jacques Brel – When We Have Only Love; and When the Shark Bites, as well as concerts specifically created for Crooners featuring French and Italian songs.
