|Good Morning Folks, |
This is a short, special edition of News That Matters for the sole purpose of getting you out of your house this afternoon and over to Arts on the Lake for the last performance of Harold Pinter's "The Dumbwaiter" at 3PM this afternoon.
Let's be honest: it's a crappy day. You could stay at home and veg, bemoaning the weather and watch re-runs of F Troop and I Love Lucy or you could go to the mall and run up your credit card debt or you could finally get to cleaning out the basement. So, since those options are not really options, get your butts off the couch and get yourselves to the old firehouse on Route 52 (just south of the Route 311 causeway) and see some live theater.
Pinter's 1960 short play (or a long one-act, if you like) sets two hitmen in a dingy basement wondering about their next job and who their victim might be. Here's the full (edited) release from Friday's Things To Do Edition of News That Matters:
The play follows Paul Austin's evocation and updated interpretation of "The Nazz", Lord Buckley's version of the story of Jesus of Nazareth. And just who is this Lord Buckley?Arts on the Lake is partnering with the Liberty Free (NY) Theatre to present Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter's play The Dumb Waiter at the Lake Carmel Cultural Center, 640 Route 52.
And what of his works? Here's a short-take from The Nazz:Lord Richard Buckley, the hipster’s hipster, was, arguably, the most original American comedian of the 20th Century. Tall, tuxedoed and mock elegant, his appearance, behavior and intellect belied the facts of his humble California Gold Country beginnings.
Three PM. Reservations are not necessary. Twelve Dollars or Ten if you've joined Arts on the Lake.
And when you get there, tell them News That Matters sent you.Be there, cats! Or you lords and kitties will be just settin' and lookin' at them hubcabs go round and round on the black and jivin' on the wonder of where your life went.
