LOVE IS STRANGE (2014)
Rated R (for language), 98 minutes - Drama, Special Interest
After nearly four decades together, Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) finally tie the knot in an idyllic wedding ceremony in lower Manhattan. But when George loses his job soon after, the couple must sell their apartment and - victims of the relentless New York City real estate market - temporarily live apart until they can find an affordable new home. While George moves in with two cops (Cheyenne Jackson and Manny Perez) who live down stairs, Ben lands in Brooklyn with his nephew (Darren Burrows), his wife (Marisa Tomei), and their temperamental teenage son (Charlie Tahan), with whom Ben shares a bedroom. While struggling with the pain of separation, Ben and George are further challenged by the intergenerational tensions and capricious family dynamics of their new living arrangements.

<>MAIN STAGE<>

BUTCH CLANCY Detroit // Ultra, DimMak Records When first introduced to electronic dance music, Butch Clancy wasted no time creating a style all his own: with pounding bass lines and heavy, intricate drums, he pulls from all the different genres of music that he has produced over the past twelve years. Keeping it dance floor friendly, but also staying true to the darker side of the bass music that he loves, he has struck a balance that makes his style fresh and new, but is still recognizable to fans. https://soundcloud.com/butchclancy https://www.facebook.com/OfficialButchClancy/info https://twitter.com/Butch_Clancy

SAMPLES Denver // Adapted Records “Ben Samples is one of the staples when throwing around names in the glitch-hop and mid-tempo genres of music” (SubSynthesis, 2010) and continues to evolve a unique voice in electronic dance music with complexity and depth. With a full length album released on Old Tacoma, Mal Label, Made in Glitch Records, EPs supported by Daly City Records, Simplify Recordings, and True Movement as well as tracks on Muti Music, Samples is one of the most sought out producers and remix artists in the Bass music scene. He has released collaborations with Ill.Gates, Big Gigantic, Stephan Jacobs, Freddy Todd, and as his live remix project Fresh2Death. http://www.bensamples.com/ https://soundcloud.com/bensamples https://www.facebook.com/djsamples https://twitter.com/djsamples

Moscow Ballet Great Russian Nutcracker
December 11, 2014 @ 7:00pm
In 1993, Moscow Ballet toured the Great Russian Nutcracker to Washington DC, Baltimore, Syracuse, Orlando, Ft Lauderdale, New Haven, Reading and Charleston WV for the first time to critical acclaim. Directed and choreographed by Stanislav Vlasov, former soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet, and well known as a “Grand Dance Artist,” the inaugural six-week tour starred principal ballerina Lillia Sabitova. It also featured the innovative rolling backgrounds first created by a St Petersburg Conservatory of Music producer, and which were the inspiration for Eisenstein’s cinematic technique. Since then the annual tour has increased to include about 100 performances on the tour to cities from San Juan to Calgary, and from New York to California, traveling with two simultaneously touring companies of forty dancers each. For more information on the Moscow Ballet visit www.nutcracker.com
