Lucky follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky (Harry Dean Stanton) finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.

New York, 1971. There’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theatre. Tomorrow the iconic building will be demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs and lie about themselves.

The Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera.

National Theatre Live

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren and the Lincoln Theatre has been there from the start. They've since broadcast more than twenty other productions live from the National Theatre, and on occasion other theatres in the UK and we've screened them all.

Past broadcasts include Danny Boyle's Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden and The Last of the Haussmans with Julie Walters. Now NT Live has just announced their new season that we are excited to present: The Threepenny Opera, No Man's Land, Amadeus, Saint Joan, and Hedda Gabler. 

With The NT announcement of their 2017 season, a number of new events have been earmarked for future NT Live productions including Twelfth Night, Angels in America - Parts I & II and Salomé.

THE DIOBSUD CREEK SERIES: Oil Paintings by Paul Blum

I have been painting in oil now for 9 years, and my work has evolved from paintings of Mt. Baker and the Cascades and mask-like faces to paintings influenced by a weekend with my wife and friends in a cabin near Marblemont along the Diobsud Creek, in the rainforest.  The sunlight shattered by the thick canopy of the Fir and Cedar, the night of wonderful music we all made, and the moonlight all had a lasting affect on me.  I’m really enjoying my new style.
