King Lear

Sunday, Oct 7, 1:00 pm


Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear at the Lincoln.

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Frankenstein

Sunday, Oct 28, 5:30 pm
Monday, Oct 29, 7:30 pm

Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. We will screen Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature on the 28th and Jonny Lee Miller as the creature on the 29th.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.

For over 20 years the the Skagit-Mount Vernon Kiwanis have held their Original Comedy Night at the Lincoln. Net proceeds from this show are returned to our community for assistance to Skagit area kids and other community needs. A good time for a good cause!

Headliner: Brad Upton

If the Pacific Northwest had a Mt. Rushmore of Comedy, this man’s head would be on it. Brad opens for some of the biggest names in show business, performs all over the country for numerous corporate events, does 8-12 weeks a year all over the world on cruise ships, opens for the legendary Johnny Mathis and performs at a handful of clubs and casinos keeping his schedule very full.

Brad Upton was a 4th grade teacher and high school track coach when he stepped on stage for the very first time in September of 1984 and he’s never looked back. He quickly rose through the standup ranks making numerous television appearances and headlining comedy clubs from coast-to-coast. In late 2018 he will surpass 6000 lifetime performances. In a 34-year professional career there are too many highlights to name them all. He is a past winner of the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and appeared at Caesar’s Palace as part of the HBO Comedy Festival. He has spent the last twelve years as the opening act for the legendary Johnny Mathis and did multiple shows all over the country with the late, great Joan Rivers. He has also been seen in concert with The Smothers Brothers, Smokey Robinson, Little Big Town, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Lewis Black, George Jones, Glen Campbell, Pam Tillis, Neal McCoy and many others.

Gary Jones

When Gary retired as an airline captain he started a new career as a stand-up comedian; he never looked back. For a number of years he has been performing in many of the major casinos from Washington to Arizona and numerous comedy clubs. He just finished another USO tour entertaining our military. When not on tour, you may have seen him on NBC's Grimm and TNT's Leverage.

He takes the audience on a journey known as life through a comedian's viewpoint. He touches on growing up, parents, dating, relationships, getting older, being a husband, and father. In short, most areas that all of us have experienced through life, but in a very fun and funny way. He also gives us a glimpse at life as an airline captain and time spent in Viet-Nam as a combat veteran. His likeable, funny manner has pleased audiences wherever he has performed. More than ever, America needs laughter and Gary delivers.

Thomas Nichols

Thomas Nichols is a stand-up comedian based in Dallas, Texas now in Seattle, Washington. His unique and whip smart observations span from everything to cartoons to broken families to missing pets- the laid back funnyman transitions seamlessly from one tightly crafted joke to the next within the course of a single set. Deadpan, hilarious, and wise beyond his 27 years, Nichols is a nationally touring comic who's been featured at the New York Finger Lakes Festival, and was a finalist at the Denver Make Me Laugh Festival. His unique brand of friendly, effortless cool and his quick wit have made him a favorite recurring guest on Fishbowl Radio, as well as one of the most popular club acts.

Kuinka

Friday, November 16 at 7:30pm

Kuinka returns to their hometown to close out their fall tour with a special concert on Friday, November 16th.

Described by NPR Music as joyous folk pop, Kuinka "laces modern folk and Americana with an electronic jolt, waltzing along the grooved edges of dream-pop, synth-pop, and Brooklyn’s mid-aughts guitar-rock revival" (Vanyaland). Their genre-defying music features several different lead singers, four-part harmony, and eclectic instrumentation including cello, banjo, synthesizers, ukulele and electronic percussion. For all of their sonic experimentation, the Seattle quartet's songs and live shows are linked by an infectious energy that remains present in everything they do. Their new EP Stay Up Late is available now on Spotify, iTunes, and at www.kuinkatheband.com.

"Kuinka crafts songs that are engaging and original with a proper amount of established canon and innovation. Stories are laced through the lyrics, there are celebrations as well as lamentations—there is synth and cello! It is such a wonderful thing to hear a sound you've adored for so long ameliorated like this, with nothing missing, only new possibilities added to the mix." -Paste Music & Daytrotter

"Seraphic vocals bookended by ukulele, cello, and heavy percussion will leave you feeling giddy and glad to be alive." -The Stranger

The Historic Lincoln Theatre presents

Karla Bonoff

Friday, April 5, 2019 - 7:30pm

Karla Bonoff has been described as one of the finest singer/songwriters of her generation. With a career spanning four decades, Bonoff has enjoyed critical acclaim, commercial success, enduring popularity and the unwavering respect of her peers. In addition to achieving chart success with her own recordings, Karla has seen her songs become hits for such stellar artists as Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna Judd and Linda Ronstadt. Many of Bonoff's ballads are now pop classics. All the while, she has continued to tour extensively, playing sold-out shows around the world.

Karla performs with Nina Gerber on guitar.
