The Rocky Horror Picture Show with shadow cast featuring...
THE RICH WEIRDOES


Rated R

Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick

Due to its celebrated history of over 30 years of decadent delight,
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
has become the longest running, fully interactive audience participation film in the world!
However, there are many people who have never been to a live, interactive cinematic experience before... or have always wanted to and didn't know what to expect.
Well, here is a quick run-down of the three main components of what makes Rocky Horror so freakin' amazing:

1- The Film: "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (a.k.a. RHPS, Rocky Horror, or just "Rocky") is a film based on a musical made in the early 1970's in England.
If you know anything about British humor (see Monty Python, or Absolutely Fabulous), you'll know it's one of the most bizarre out there.
The original musical was a campy comedy making fun of all the horrible sci-fi and “B”-movies of the 1940's, 50’s and 60's: A variety of weird and naughty things happen to a nice, little Middle-American couple (Brad & Janet).
When they stumble upon an annual convention of aliens, all lead by a cross-dressing doctor bent on making himself a Frankenstein-style monster/playmate.
Depravity, singing, dancing, and eventually, mutiny round out the play. The play turned into a movie. The movie flopped. The movie started playing at midnight. People started showing up to it...

2- The Cast: The Rocky Horror experience is enhanced by what is know as a "shadow cast".
A shadow cast is a group of performers who study the film or video recordings for the sole purpose of adapting/interpreting it into a pantomime stage performance.
When done well, everything that goes on in the film is performed by live actors in perfect synch while the film or video plays above them.
Some performers focus on screen accuracy, hoping to make their costumes, makeup, choreography, gestures, etc. as much of a direct replica of what is pictured on the screen above them.
Others prefer to blend screen accuracy with their own quirks or improvisations, resulting in humorous, sometimes thematic, over-the-top interpretations of the film.

3- The Audience: Yes, YOU get to be part of the show:
Many audience members express themselves through attire: whether to mimic their favorite characters, elicit a reaction from fellow theater-goers, or to flaunt their own flavor of depravity.
Also, the audience (along with some painfully well-versed comedians on cast) participate in an ongoing litany of jokes, sight gags and other humorous banter.
Many of the jokes at a Rocky performance hail from a long tradition of burlesque ribaldry.
In other words, the jokes at a typical Rocky Horror performance tend to be a bit on the nasty/naughty/raunchy/un-politically correct side so, as a warning:

!!! - If you're not offended, we didn't do our job. - !!!

So, if you're prepared to let go of your inhibitions (even if only for one night), laugh at everything you've been told not to (including YOURSELF) and "let your freak flag fly," then you've come to the right place.
Really ... nothing is sacred ... nothing.

Love, Gilda

Not Rated

DIRECTOR -- Lisa D'Apolito
PRODUCERS -- Bronwyn Berry, Meryl Goldsmith, James Tumminia

Gilda Radner puts a smile on the faces of people who remember watching her as one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live, where she created and portrayed such now-classic comic characters as Roseanne Roseannadanna, Emily Litella and Lisa Loopner. She quickly rose to meteoric fame in television, movies and on Broadway, and was declared ‘one of America’s sweethearts.’ LOVE, GILDA, directed by Lisa D’Apolito, is a true autobiography, told in Gilda’s words and in her own voice. Working with the Radner Estate, D’Apolito unearthed a collection of diaries and personal audio and videotapes documenting her childhood, her comedy career, her relationships and ultimately, her struggle with cancer. This never-before-seen footage and journal entries form the narrative spine of the documentary, allowing Gilda to tell her own story-- through the laughter and sometimes the tears. Incredibly, she was able to find humor in even the darkest of times. Gilda’s spirit lives on in comedy as a female trailblazer who continues to inspire many present day comedic performers, including Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Cecily Strong. Also interviewed are SNL original cast members-- Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman and Paul Shaffer-- as well as, Lorne Michaels (SNL creator and producer), Alan Zweibel (SNL writer), Stephen Schwartz (Broadway composer); Andrew Alexander (CEO of Second City) and long-time friend Martin Short. LOVE, GILDA opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.

The Healer

Not Rated

Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Jonathan Pryce, Camilla Luddington

Alec’s (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) life in England is falling apart. “The Healer,” his electrical repair store, is going out of business. He owes money to the wrong people, he's sleeping with married women, and he' s drinking like there's no tomorrow.
Unexpectedly, a man named Raymond (Jonathan Pryce) shows up, claiming to be his uncle. Raymond has a proposition that could provide Alec with a clean slate: he will pay all his debts in exchange for Alec moving to Nova Scotia for one year.
Alec arrives to Lunenburg, the small rural town where Raymond owns a house. To make a living, Cecilia (Camilla Luddington), the local veterinarian he befriends, places an ad for him in the local weekly newspaper offering his services as an electrical repairman. Trying to cleverly allure the townspeople, he decides to print, “The Healer, I fix anything electrical that is broken.” But the ad is misprinted; it seems that Alec is claiming to be an actual mystical healer of people.
The townspeople flock to hire his services—but Alec rebuffs them, explaining the misprint.
What's extraordinary and unexplainable is that those that do go and see Alec are cured of their ailments! The rumor spreads: Alec definitely heals.
As much as Alec yearns to avoid being attributed any healing powers, more bizarre events keep occurring. Dogs seem absolutely fascinated with him; the local priest Father Malloy (Jorge Garcia), suffers a heart attack, dies, and then comes back to life; and a deaf old man tells his wife to stop screaming at him.
Alec, in shock, discovers the family secret he possesses a gift: the gift of healing.
Alec must now make a conscious choice: to accept or reject the gift.
The arrival of Abigail (Kaitlyn Bernard), a teenage girl with terminal cancer, wise beyond her years, provides Alec with one last chance to consider his life’s purpose.

From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to…Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life; “praying with the violin,” says renowned Tel Aviv violinmaker Amnon Weinstein. Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician, to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. As charming and entrancing as the famous violinist himself, ITZHAK is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor, and above all, love.

STARRING -- Janae Marie Kroczaleski

In the summer of 2015, former US Marine and world record weightlifter Matt "Kroc" Kroczaleski was publicly outed as being transgender. The reaction was universal: her sponsors abandoned her, she was disowned by her parents, banned from competing, and she changed her name to "Janae". This film follows Janae as she attempts to find her place in society.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show with shadow cast featuring...
THE RICH WEIRDOES


Rated R

Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick

Due to its celebrated history of over 30 years of decadent delight,
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
has become the longest running, fully interactive audience participation film in the world!
However, there are many people who have never been to a live, interactive cinematic experience before... or have always wanted to and didn't know what to expect.
Well, here is a quick run-down of the three main components of what makes Rocky Horror so freakin' amazing:

1- The Film: "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (a.k.a. RHPS, Rocky Horror, or just "Rocky") is a film based on a musical made in the early 1970's in England.
If you know anything about British humor (see Monty Python, or Absolutely Fabulous), you'll know it's one of the most bizarre out there.
The original musical was a campy comedy making fun of all the horrible sci-fi and “B”-movies of the 1940's, 50’s and 60's: A variety of weird and naughty things happen to a nice, little Middle-American couple (Brad & Janet).
When they stumble upon an annual convention of aliens, all lead by a cross-dressing doctor bent on making himself a Frankenstein-style monster/playmate.
Depravity, singing, dancing, and eventually, mutiny round out the play. The play turned into a movie. The movie flopped. The movie started playing at midnight. People started showing up to it...

2- The Cast: The Rocky Horror experience is enhanced by what is know as a "shadow cast".
A shadow cast is a group of performers who study the film or video recordings for the sole purpose of adapting/interpreting it into a pantomime stage performance.
When done well, everything that goes on in the film is performed by live actors in perfect synch while the film or video plays above them.
Some performers focus on screen accuracy, hoping to make their costumes, makeup, choreography, gestures, etc. as much of a direct replica of what is pictured on the screen above them.
Others prefer to blend screen accuracy with their own quirks or improvisations, resulting in humorous, sometimes thematic, over-the-top interpretations of the film.

3- The Audience: Yes, YOU get to be part of the show:
Many audience members express themselves through attire: whether to mimic their favorite characters, elicit a reaction from fellow theater-goers, or to flaunt their own flavor of depravity.
Also, the audience (along with some painfully well-versed comedians on cast) participate in an ongoing litany of jokes, sight gags and other humorous banter.
Many of the jokes at a Rocky performance hail from a long tradition of burlesque ribaldry.
In other words, the jokes at a typical Rocky Horror performance tend to be a bit on the nasty/naughty/raunchy/un-politically correct side so, as a warning:

!!! - If you're not offended, we didn't do our job. - !!!

So, if you're prepared to let go of your inhibitions (even if only for one night), laugh at everything you've been told not to (including YOURSELF) and "let your freak flag fly," then you've come to the right place.
Really ... nothing is sacred ... nothing.

Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter, and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides to pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh. Meanwhile, down in Whoville, Cindy-Lou Who, a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer, plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch's more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus?

Bolshoi Ballet: The Nutcracker (2018)

CHOREOGRAPHER -- Yuri Grigorovich
DESIGNER -- Simon Virsaladze
MUSIC DIRECTOR -- Gennadi Rozhdestvensky 


Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without The Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker. Come and enjoy Mary and Franz's wonderful adventures as they meet a magician with strange secrets, join an army of valiant toy soldiers to fight a villainous Mouse King and take a trip to a land where everything is made of sweets. This really is an evening of magic: classical ballet at its most visually entrancing, with something to appeal to everyone, young and old.
Tchaikovsky's sparkling, effervescent score contains a wealth of famous melodies, and the production is a visual delight from start to finish. Come and experience some special magic this Christmas and into the New Year.

Act I
Guests are gathering for a Christmas party at the Stahlbaum home. Among them are Drosselmeyer, godfather to Marie and Fritz, the Stahlbaums’ children. He has brought them a wonderful present: a funny Nutcracker.

The children wait with impatience for when at long last they will be shown the Christmas tree and the presents. The long awaited moment comes: the handsomely adorned Christmas tree is presented to the assembled company.

Drosselmeyer suddenly appears disguised as a magician: he is not recognized by the children. Their unknown guest’s ability to make their toys come alive delights the children but, as everything that is clad in mystery, it involuntarily arouses their fear. In order to calm them down, Drosselmeyer takes off his mask and the chil­dren now recognize their beloved godfather. Marie wants to play with the wonderful dolls which have come alive, but they have already been tidied away. To comfort Marie, Drosselmeyer gives her the Nutcracker-Doll. Marie takes a great liking to this awkward, funny creature.

Marie’s brother Fritz, who is a great tease and very naughty, acci­dentally breaks the doll. With great tenderness, Marie comforts her injured Nutcracker and rocks it backwards and forwards. Fritz and his friends now put on mouse masks and tease poor Marie.

The guests appear from an adjoining room. After the final, ceremonial Grossvater dance, they all leave.
At night the room where the Christmas tree stands is bathed in moonlight. It looks mysterious and full of magical secrets. Overcoming her fears, Marie has come to the room to visit her ‘sick’ Nutcracker-Doll. She kisses the doll and rocks it.

Drosselmeyer now appears. But instead of her kind godfather, he has turned into a wizard. At a wave of his hand everything around them is transformed: the walls of the room slide back, the Christmas tree starts to grow. And all the toys come alive and grow together with the tree.

Suddenly, mice creep out from under the floor­boards, led by the Mouse King. The dolls are panic-stricken and thrown into confusion. The Nutcracker’s quick wits and bravery save the day: lining up the lead soldiers, he boldly leads them out to do battle with the mice forces.

However, the forces are unequal, the advantage is on the side of the evil mice. The Nutcracker is left alone to face the Mouse King and his suite. Marie is out of her mind with worry over the danger that threatens her doll. At this very moment, Drosselmeyer hands her a lighted candle and she throws it at the mice who scurry away helter-skelter.

The battle field empties. The only person left here is the Nutcracker who lies without moving on the floor. Marie, together with the dolls, hurries to his rescue. And now a miracle occurs...Before Marie stands a handsome youth, the Nutcracker-Prince. He walks forward to meet her.

The walls of the house disappear. Marie and her friends are standing under a star-studded sky, by a fairy-tale Christmas tree. Snowflakes go round in a magical dance. Marie and her Nutcracker-Prince, beckon, as if to a beautiful dream, to the twinkling star at the top of the Christmas tree. They climb into a magic boat and set off for the top of the tree. The dolls follow behind them.

Act II
Marie and Nutcracker-Prince are sailing in their magic boat through the Christmas tree kingdom. There are their friends, the dolls with them. The shining star is getting closer and closer. They are just about to reach the top of the tree when they are suddenly attacked by the mice and the Mouse King who have crept up behind them. Once again, the Nutcracker-Prince goes boldly into battle. Horribly frightened, Marie and the dolls watch the fight. The Nutcracker-Prince vanquishes the enemy. Joyous victory celebrations are underway. The dolls dance, the candles burn even brighter, the Christmas tree comes alive. The evil mice have been defeated. Marie and the Nutcracker-Prince are radiant with happiness — they have reached the kingdom of their dreams! But it appears all this was just a dream. Christmas Eve is over and with it all wonderful reveries. Marie, still in the thrall of the fabulous dream, is sitting at home by the Christmas tree, with the Nutcracker-Doll on her lap.
