Cyrano ee Bergerac

By Edmond Rostand, in a new version by Martin Crimp
Directed by Jamie Lloyd
NT Live
James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the London's West End.
Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There's just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano - or can his mastery of language set Roxane's world alight?
Edmond Rostand's masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp and directed by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal).
This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano's powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
"McAvoy is spellbinding as Cyrano" - Metro
"funny, thrilling and deeply moving." - WhatsOnStage

Live Music: Spencer Lewis & the New Old Vermonters

Original and traditional ballads & fiddle tunes with twisted, old time grooves - and a Dylan song thrown in.
Niles Francs - on upright bass; Kevin Wright on slide acoustic and songwriter; Justin Park from Heartwood Farm on mandolin, and Spencer Lewis on guitar, fiddle, violin and songwriter; everyone sings.
As a fiddler in the old time tradition, his ‘97 release Lighter Than Fancy “reveals Lewis to be an inventive, serendipitous writer of old-time fiddle tunes with melodies that are as timeless as any they emulate.” (Pamela Polston, Seven Days)
As a singer-songwriter and folksinger Lewis mixes old time & folk with his own folkthatrocks. He possesses an inimitable cross flat- picking style that combines the Carter Family's 'church -lick', Mississippi John Hurt’s fluid finger-picking, and Ramblin’Jack Elliott's interpretive style.

The Den is an intimate, down-home, funky pub that's recently opened up to host authentic acoustic music.

Healthy Aging with Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs Ancient Chinese medicine is full of acupuncture treatments and formulas to support healthy aging. We are born with Essence or Jing which is part of our life force. As we age this Jing gets used. We also use our Kidney Yin and Yang, and as a result our skin starts to wrinkle, our hair turns gray or falls out, and we have less energy than we did in our youth. As the Kidneys are affected by age we also can start to have back, hip and knee issues. All of this can be addressed with herbs and acupuncture to help ease gracefully through our lives, live with more essence & joy, and less pain!
This talk is free and open to the public, with Christina Ducharme, L.Ac, MAOM, of Blue Heron Acupuncture, LLC.

Concert: Dave Bromberg Quartet


For Americana music godfather, David Bromberg, it all began with the blues. Bromberg’s incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes but is not limited to his adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son.
A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. Bromberg’s many other collaborations constitute a Who’s Who in music: Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Jorma Kaukonen, Tom Paxton, Richie Havens, Carly Simon, Sha Na Na, John Prine, Gordon Lightfoot, Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge, Ringo Starr, The Eagles, Commander Cody, Country Joe McDonald, Leon Redbone and many others.
Bromberg’s guitar work remains a marvel; amped electric lead – both slide and fretted – and delicately powerful acoustic fingerpicking propel these songs with the same force that made him the go-to guy for acts ranging from The Eagles to Link Wray to Phoebe Snow. This is a man who can go full-on Chicago gutbucket with You Don’t Have to Go” (a Bromberg original), then slay with the jazz inflections of Ray Charles’ Fool for Yourendered here intimately solo.
Although Bromberg points out he’s not the same guitarist he was before his two decades away from performing and recording. “I play differently, he says. I can’t play as fast, but playing slower gives me more time to think about what I’m doing. He’s always able to plug into the emotion of a song,
Bromberg’s vocals cover a broad range: impassioned, vibrato-laden testifying; pew-jumping soul shouts; soft, confident, crooning....
