Culture Shock

Running with the Pack

Writer Amy Irvine honors, challenges and rethinks Desert Solitaire

With humor, wisdom and a sense of urgency, Amy Irvine uses Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire as a jumping off point to assess the current state of the world, to expose the very human error of the literary heroes on dusty pedestals, and to reinsert many of us back into the narrative.

Night one kicks off with a 60th anniversary screening of Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot at 3pm at Jean Cocteau Cinema and caps off with opening night film, Just Mercy at 7pm at Violet Crown. Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, O'Shea Jackson Jr. and Brie Larson star in this dramatic true story of Harvard grad Bryan Stevenson, who heads to Alabama to defend people who were wrongly condemned because they could not afford legal proper representation.

What's the Buzz?

Jesus Christ Superstar

Jesus Christ Superstar's four-night run at Popejoy Hall commences on Thursday, Oct 17 at 7:30pm and continues through the weekend with an Oct. 18 performance at 7:30pm. There are two performances of the Grammy Award-winning pop opera on Saturday, Oct. 19 with a matinee at 2pm and an evening show at 8pm as well as two shows on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 2pm and at 6:30pm. Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice wrote this one so, in concert with a national touring company, expect some high class musical hijinks as seen through the eyes of Judas, the most unreliable narrator of all time. Plenty of super-cool songs populate the narrative, including stuff you may vaguely recall from childhood if your folks were also going to guitar mass when the double-album version of this first appeared in American pop culture in the early to mid-1970s. Tickets for this all-ages theatrical experience cost between $58 and $98, so render unto Caesar and all that.
