It’s About Time

Thursday, June 18

Singers Stephen Rainville and Cathy Walsh and accompanist-arranger Tim Guiles create a summer evening of musical reflection and celebration of the kinds of life experiences that shape us over time: songs of discovery, change, challenges, adventures, and love. It’s an entrancing pastiche of songs by composers ranging from Richard Rodgers to Stephen Sondheim to John Bucchino. 

Stephen and Cathy share a long history of friendship and performance through both musical theater and cabaret in and around Vermont. Tim Guiles breathes excitement into his arrangements and his interpretations of familiar and contemporary songs. As a trio, they’ll weave together an evening of humor and poignancy, using favorites from the musical theater canon as well as traditional songs. 

Join us for this evening of songs celebrating a life well lived: things fall apart, we fix them up,  go on, celebrate, and renew. It’s about time.




Tosca's Kiss

Tosca’s Kiss

Friday, June 19

Meet the inhabitants of the “Casa di Riposa” in Milan, the world’s first nursing home for retired opera singers, founded by composer Giuseppe Verdi in 1896.In his documentary film Tosca’s Kiss, which has developed an underground cult following over the years and is a favorite among opera and music lovers worldwide, director Daniel Schmid has captured a world in which these wonderful singers (many of whom had significant careers on the opera stage) re-live and re-enact their triumphant roles of the glorious past.

Tosca’s Kiss is a touching and often hilarious film on the subject of aging and the power and timeless capacity of music to inspire.

“Touching and exhilarating… Bravissimo!” —The New York Times 
“One of the years’ 10 Best” —The Village Voice 
“A delightful and very poignant documentary about opera, art and old age.” —Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II

National Theatre Broadcast: The Audience

Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth

June 27, 2015

On the THT BIG SCREEN, Encore of the National Theatre of Great Britain HD Broadcast from the London stage

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! We screened this National Theatre broadcast to packed houses and rave reviews. The play was so successful in London, that it’s now on Broadway playing to sold-out houses. Helen Mirren is simply stunning in this funny and revealing play about Britain’s current monarch. 

In this play by Peter Morgan, Queen Elizabeth holds a series of audiences with prime ministers throughout her reign – including Churchill, John Major and Margaret Thatcher. A huge hit in the West End, it’s a remarkable story of a Queen – and an actress – in full command of her situation. 

7 pm $17/$10 students Reserved seating.
