Lamoille County Players presents: Boeing, Boeing

Lamoille County Players presents: Boeing, Boeing

“Drink up. We’re in for a bumpy night.” Sage advice from put-upon maid Berthe (Jill Vize, Stowe) as Lamoille County Players brings a 1962 French bedroom farce to the stage in their sixty-seventh season with a production of Boeing, Boeing.

Boeing, Boeing is set in the 1960s, and centers on French bachelor Bernard (Brendan Peveril, Hyde Park), who has an apartment in Paris and is engaged to three stewardesses: New York-based Gloria (Andrea Gagner, Saint Albans), Italy-based Gabriella (Leanne Day Harple, West Glover), and Germany-based Gretchen (Christine Grzebien, Barton/Orleans). All three are engaged to him without knowing about each other. When his friend Robert (Chris Demars, Morrisville) visits from Vermont, Bernard's lifestyle begins to unravel. Complications from weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously, and catastrophe looms.

Director Gene Heinrich of Saint Albans (who directed Deathtrap and The Miracle Worker for LCP) chose Boeing, Boeing for its over-the-top, naughty French slapstick humor. “I wanted to bring something to the stage that defies our over-zealous political correctness. This is a classic play that touches on stereotypes and slightly adult themes in a hilarious manner. You will leave the theater with a smile on your face before realizing how offended you should be by the inappropriate situations and humor. A good time will be had by all!”

Performance dates for Boeing, Boeing are November 8-10 and 15-17 (Friday – Saturday, 7:00pm; Sundays, 2:00pm) at the historic Hyde Park Opera House in Hyde Park, Vermont. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for students, or seniors ages 60 and over. On Sunday, November 10 all seats are just $10 for the 2:00 pm matinee.

LCP is supporting the Lamoille Community House with a BOGO (buy-one-get-one-free) offer on November 8 & 9. Located at 103 Main Street in Hyde Park, the Lamoille Community House is a seasonal adult shelter serving the Lamoille Valley. Use promo come LCH when ordering tickets online, over the phone, or in person.

Tickets for all shows are available now, online at LCPlayers.com. You can pick your own seats and get ticket purchase confirmation, all at no additional charge. The box office (802-888-4507) opens an hour before each performance; call for additional information. If you are unsure of your plans, we recommend that you not make reservations, but rather buy your tickets at the door.

Film: The Current War: Director's Cut

Film: The Current War: Director's Cut

Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in The Current War, the epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch is Thomas Edison, the celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future Titans of Industry the need to break all the rules.

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.

Sage City Symphony Fall Concert features Bennington College composer Allen Shawn

Sage City Symphony Fall Concert features Bennington College composer Allen Shawn

On Sunday, November 17, at 4:00 p.m., Sage City Symphony will present a free concert sponsored by the Bank of Bennington at Greenwall Auditorium in the VAPA Building at Bennington College. A silent auction featuring a wide array of arts, crafts, jewelry, deluxe gift baskets, and many more items ideal for holiday giving will begin before the performance and conclude at the end of intermission.

The concert, directed by longtime conductor Michael Finckel, will present the Adagio movement from Symphony No. 10 by Gustav Mahler, the Nabucco Overture by Giuseppe Verdi, and Five Orchestral Scenes by Allen Shawn.

Born in New York City, Allen Shawn began composing small pieces as a 10-year-old, at which point he started providing music for his older brother’s puppet shows. He asked his parents for piano lessons and was soon studying with a teacher who encouraged his composing and introduced him to the music of Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Berg, Bartok, Prokofiev, and other early twentieth century composers. He was particularly attracted to Bartok and was electrified by Stravinsky’s “Le Sacre du Printemps.” He learned the Berg Sonata at the age of 15, and it was the piece he found easiest to memorize and most enjoyable to perform. In the summers he studied with piano teacher Emilie Harris, and attended Kinhaven Music Camp, in Weston, Vermont, where the camp directors, David and Dorothy Dushkin, gave him opportunities to hear his fledgling chamber and orchestral compositions. At 17, Shawn conducted the Vermont Philharmonic in one of his orchestra pieces. Attending the Putney School in Vermont, he had a momentous musical experience performing as soloist in Mozart’s C minor piano concerto, K. 491, with the school orchestra conducted by music teacher Norwood Hinkle.

Shawn’s father was a gifted amateur jazz pianist who took the family to nightclubs where they heard musical giants Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and Charlie Mingus live, experiences that left and indelible imprint on the young musician. As a child and teenager, Shawn also benefited from being able to regularly attend chamber music concerts, the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, and the New York City Ballet, in the heyday of George Balanchine’s tenure there. After his years at Putney, Shawn continued his studies at Harvard University, studying composition with Earl Kim and Leon Kirchner; he also studied privately with composer Francis Judd Cooke. Following college, he spent two years studying with the legendary Nadia Boulanger in Paris.

Known today as a composer of a large catalogue of orchestral and chamber music, Allen Shawn has also composed three chamber operas, songs, piano music, and music for ballet, theatre, and film. He was the recipient of a 1995 Goddard Lieberson Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and an Academy Award in music in 2001. He is active as a pianist and is the author of four books: “Arnold Schoenberg’s Journey” (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2002); “Wish I Could Be There” (Penguin, 2007); “Twin” (Viking, 2011); and “Leonard Bernstein: An American Musician” (Yale University Press, 2014), as well as articles for the New York Review of Books, the Atlantic Monthly, the Musical Times, the Times Literary Supplement, and the New York Times Magazine.

In 1985 Shawn moved to Bennington, Vermont, and joined the music faculty of Bennington College. He has lived in Vermont and taught at Bennington since that time.

Upcoming performances for Sage City Symphony’s 2019-20 concert season: Winter Concert on February 2 (Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn, by Johannes Brahms; Table of Toys and Numbers (2012) by Nick Brooke; Symphony No. 2 in D Major op. 21 by Ludwig van Beethoven); Youth Concert on March 8 (“South of the Border”: Kora Saba (2014) by Michael Wimberly; Danzón by Robert Zimmerman; Sensemayá by Silvestre Revueltas; Danzón No. 2 by Arturo Márquez; new works by Bennington College student composers); Spring Concert and Annual Dinner on May 17 (Overture to Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; new works by Bennington College student composers; a commissioned work TBA by Geoffrey Gee; Symphony No. 3 by Sergei Rachmaninoff).

About Sage City Symphony
Led by music director Michael Finckel for the past 25 years, Sage City Symphony was founded in 1972 as a community and college orchestra with close ties to Bennington College. In addition to performing traditional classical repertoire as well as contemporary music, the symphony commissions and premieres new pieces each year. The symphony attracts a high caliber of dedicated amateur and professional musicians who travel from throughout Vermont, New York, and Massachusetts for weekly rehearsals during the concert season. Auditions are not required, and academic credit is available for Bennington College students who participate. Information about joining the symphony is available at www.SageCitySymphony.org.

Sage City Symphony is a registered federal non-profit organization in the State of Vermont that relies entirely on generous donations, gifts in kind, grants, and volunteer services from individuals, local foundations, businesses, and sponsors. Concerts are always free and open to all.

Malcolm Morley

Malcolm Morley

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition by British-born American artist Malcolm Morley at its galleries in Reading, Vermont. Hailed internationally as a pioneering figure of his generation, Morley was a founder of Super-Realism, which developed as a counterpoint to Pop Art in the 1960s. He is also remembered as an artist who deliberately broke away from the stylistic innovations which brought him this initial fame. Over a career spanning sixty years, Morley’s practice continually evolved, his paintings becoming ever more colorful, expressive and distinctive. This exhibition includes approximately 40 paintings, sculptures and works on paper created between 1964 and 2016 from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. On view from 11 May through 1 December 2019. Appointments available 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sa–Su. $10 pp. First Friday of every month, 5–8 p.m., free without a guide.

Joel Barber & the Modern Decoy

Joel Barber & the Modern Decoy

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

Joel D. Barber, Swan, Havre de Grace, 1950. Watercolor and ink on paper, 17 7/16 x 23 9/16 in. Collection of Shelburne Museum, gift of J. Watson, Jr., Harry H., and Samuel B. Webb. 1952-192.388. Photography by Andy Duback.

This monographic exhibition is the first of its kind to focus on the life and artwork of architect, author, illustrator, and pioneering decoy collector Joel D. Barber (1876-1952). Featuring more than 100 decoys, drawings, historical photographs, and watercolors from Shelburne Museum’s extensive collection and archives, the exhibition will be organized into five thematic sections. The first section explores Barber’s introduction to the world of wildfowl decoys and his early collecting years. The next section focuses on the Art Deco-inspired watercolors he used to illustrate his groundbreaking first book Wild Fowl Decoys published in 1934. The third section chronicles his various attempts at trying to design the perfect “Modern” decoy, amalgams based on historical precedents found in his collection. The fourth section examines the numerous ways Barber exhibited his collection publicly to shine a spotlight on decoys, including: duck shows, art exhibitions, and the establishment of the world’s first decoy museum in 1947. Using existing watercolor portraits and measured drawings, the fifth and final section pieces together Barber’s unfinished second book The Decoys of North America, an ambitious project that consumed the final three years of his life.

Time Lapse: Contemporary Analog Photography celebrates the work of 14 international and national contemporary artists who use the darkroom as a type of laboratory and find inspiration in the vast array of 19th-century photographic processes, from daguerreotypes to photograms. Experimenting with the mutable medium of photography and employing a variety of materials—from cyanotype dresses made of tamale wrappers to a three-dimensional shelter displaying tintype portraits—these artists depict familiar subjects of landscapes, portraiture, and still life through a contemporary lens.
