WAITING FOR LEFTY

An Actors’ Equity Association Members Project Code Presentation WAITING FOR LEFTY by Clifford Odets Directed by Charles Waxberg The actors of Theatre9/12 present one of the most important plays of the 20th century: Clifford Odets’ Waiting for Lefty first presented by the famous Group Theatre. Set in the Great Depression and addressing the exploitation of the working classes, the play centers around the 1934 Taxi strike in New York City. In this election year when topics such as minimum wage and healthcare are debated and murmurs of “class warfare” surface, this play is surprisingly germane 80 years later. As the characters rage at the unfairness, only their language reveals they are from another era; their pleas are as contemporary as today’s news. Directed by Theatre9/12 Artistic Director Charles Waxberg. January 29-February 20, 2016 Friday and Saturdays, 8pm, Saturday Matinees at 2pm.

Trouble Free Trees and Shrubs

It would be great if we could just plant a tree or shrub and forget it, but that isn't possible. It is possible to have plants that require minimum care. It all starts before you plant.

The History of Eastern Airlines

Led initially by World War I flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker, Eastern Airlines was one of the “Big Four” domestic airlines created by the 1930 “Spoils Conference.” A near-monopoly of the New York to Florida market (“Number one to the sun”) supported rapid growth. Labor disputes and debt strained the company under former Apollo 8 astronaut Frank Borman, who assumed executive leadership in 1975 and continued until 1986. In that year Frank Lorenzo acquired the airline and moved most of its assets to Texas Air and Continental Airlines. Eastern ran out of money and was liquidated in 1991 with most of its routes to Latin America and the Caribbean acquired by American and Delta Airlines. Hear Bill McCutcheon explain the reasons for the rise and fall of this important airline. Category: Arts & entertainment. Charitable. Classes & lectures. Audience: Kids. Teens. Singles.

Greater Tuna

Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals. Greater Tuna has been a favorite production for theaters throughout the country for many years and was even broadcast nationally on TV. So if you enjoy seeing quirky characters – and who doesn’t – then come visit, pull up a chair, and set a spell in Greater Tuna. Y’all will be glad you did! Greater Tuna was originally produced in 1981 in Austin, Texas, by its authors, Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard. The play's stars, Williams and Sears, played all twenty characters and Howard directed.

Andy McKee

Andy McKee is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists, and his crossover success to over 150 million YouTube viewers underscores his emergence as one of today’s most unique and influential artists.To fans of virtuoso musicianship it is Andy’s attention to song structure and melodic content that elevates him above the rest. “In my humble opinion, Andy is the most innovative and exciting fingerstyle guitarist to emerge in years... Andy has developed a mastery of the 6-string guitar and the harp guitar that leaves me speechless. He is the most textural player of the instrument since Michael Hedges, and he creates sonic architecture worthy of the great modern composers for any instrument.”-DON ROSS.

WAITING FOR LEFTY

An Actors’ Equity Association Members Project Code Presentation WAITING FOR LEFTY by Clifford Odets Directed by Charles Waxberg The actors of Theatre9/12 present one of the most important plays of the 20th century: Clifford Odets’ Waiting for Lefty first presented by the famous Group Theatre. Set in the Great Depression and addressing the exploitation of the working classes, the play centers around the 1934 Taxi strike in New York City. In this election year when topics such as minimum wage and healthcare are debated and murmurs of “class warfare” surface, this play is surprisingly germane 80 years later. As the characters rage at the unfairness, only their language reveals they are from another era; their pleas are as contemporary as today’s news. Directed by Theatre9/12 Artistic Director Charles Waxberg. January 29-February 20, 2016 Friday and Saturdays, 8pm, Saturday Matinees at 2pm.

WAITING FOR LEFTY

An Actors’ Equity Association Members Project Code Presentation WAITING FOR LEFTY by Clifford Odets Directed by Charles Waxberg The actors of Theatre9/12 present one of the most important plays of the 20th century: Clifford Odets’ Waiting for Lefty first presented by the famous Group Theatre. Set in the Great Depression and addressing the exploitation of the working classes, the play centers around the 1934 Taxi strike in New York City. In this election year when topics such as minimum wage and healthcare are debated and murmurs of “class warfare” surface, this play is surprisingly germane 80 years later. As the characters rage at the unfairness, only their language reveals they are from another era; their pleas are as contemporary as today’s news. Directed by Theatre9/12 Artistic Director Charles Waxberg. January 29-February 20, 2016 Friday and Saturdays, 8pm, Saturday Matinees at 2pm.

Creased- Short Film Screening

Creased, a local short film sponsored by 4Culture will be hosting a free local screening at BAM on February 13th. The film centers around an Asian American high school senior girl, Kayla, who is strongly considering getting a form of plastic surgery called "double-eyelid surgery” or “Asian eyelid surgery” thus creating a larger and possibly more “western” eye shape. Living in a virtually all white community, Kayla doesn’t feel like she is accepted easily as her Caucasian best friends and believes this surgery will help her to finally "just blend.” This is a film that takes place at the crossroads of race, race relations, beauty standards and youth culture. The film runs for about 16 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A session with the director, Jade Justad. Category: Arts & entertainment. Audience: Teens. Singles. College Students. Dads. Moms.

Greater Tuna

Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals. Greater Tuna has been a favorite production for theaters throughout the country for many years and was even broadcast nationally on TV. So if you enjoy seeing quirky characters – and who doesn’t – then come visit, pull up a chair, and set a spell in Greater Tuna. Y’all will be glad you did!

WAITING FOR LEFTY

An Actors’ Equity Association Members Project Code Presentation WAITING FOR LEFTY by Clifford Odets Directed by Charles Waxberg The actors of Theatre9/12 present one of the most important plays of the 20th century: Clifford Odets’ Waiting for Lefty first presented by the famous Group Theatre. Set in the Great Depression and addressing the exploitation of the working classes, the play centers around the 1934 Taxi strike in New York City. In this election year when topics such as minimum wage and healthcare are debated and murmurs of “class warfare” surface, this play is surprisingly germane 80 years later. As the characters rage at the unfairness, only their language reveals they are from another era; their pleas are as contemporary as today’s news. Directed by Theatre9/12 Artistic Director Charles Waxberg. January 29-February 20, 2016 Friday and Saturdays, 8pm, Saturday Matinees at 2pm.

Diane Les Becquets- Breaking Wild

A dramatic thriller about a wife and mother who goes missing in the Colorado wilderness and the female ranger determined to find her, Breaking Wild marks the stunning adult fiction debut by author Diane Les Becquets. In alternating chapters set against a powerful story of survival, Becquets peels back the lives and identities of both women to tell a tale of fractured relationships, tragic pasts, and the human capacity for friendship, love, loyalty, and living and believing against all odds. Flawed, fierce, and passionate, both women mirror the cruel and beautiful nature that surrounds them. Joining us for a reading and signing, Becquets will share their powerful story with us.
