HIGH-SPIRITED ST. PATRICK'S WITH

BRIAN DOYLE, TONY CURTIS, AND THE FIRE INSIDE

Expect high spirits, laughter, and lilting music of both the literary and instrumental kind when award-winning Oregon author Brian Doyle joins Ireland's beloved Tony Curtis and the Seattle-area Celtic band The Fire Inside for a St. Patrick's celebration at the Lincoln Theatre on March 17th at 7:30pm.

Sponsoring the evening is The Skagit River Poetry Foundation, dedicated to enhancing literacy and the appreciation of writing throughout our Northwest communities. The foundation will host a pre-concert fund-raising reception and book signing, 5:30-7 p.m., at The Trumpeter Public House, 416 Myrtle Street in Mount Vernon. Brian Doyle, who describes himself as a "hirsute shambling shuffling mumbling grumbling muttering muddled maundering meandering male being," will headline the evening celebration.

Doyle, editor of Portland Magazine, is well-known as a colorful, insightful essayist, poet, and short story writer, author of such gems as the collection "Bin Laden's Bald Spot." His novels, including "The Plover" and "Mink River," have earned him a devoted following and comparisons to Dylan Thomas and Sherwood Anderson.

Dublin's beloved Tony Curtis is a mesmerizing showman and poet. The lyrical writer and musical performer is the author of six warmly received collections of poetry, including "The Well in the Rain: New and Selected Poems." His work as a Skagit River Poetry Foundation poet-in-residence has charmed young students throughout the Northwest. Curtis, awarded Ireland's National Poetry Prize, is one of the most popular poets in his country.

Adding Celtic kick to the evening will be the popular band The Fire Inside, from Seattle's Eastside. The group performs smoldering Celtic music with heel-clicking intensity, drawing from traditional and trend-setting influences. Instruments in play include fiddle, uilleann pipes, bodhran, whistles, guitar, concertina, mandolin, and vocals.

Reserved tickets for the main event are $30 general admission, $17 for students. Tickets for the fundraising reception, which includes appetizers and drinks, are $50, or $75 for both reception and main event. All tickets are available through the Lincoln Theatre: lincolntheatre.org. or call 360-336-8955.. Tickets will also be sold at the door, if available. But be warned: This lively St. Patrick's event is likely to sell out early. For more information contact Skagit River Poetry Foundation Communications Director M.L. Lyke, lyke.ink@gmail.com, 360-770-7184.

The Lincoln Theatre and the Rick Epting Foundation are very excited to present (not) "just another band from East L.A.",

Los Lobos,

for one-show-only on Wednesday, March 18th at 7:30pm.

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984.

Although the album's name and title song were inspired by a National Geographic article about real life wolves in the wild, the band—David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin—saw parallels with their struggle to gain mainstream rock success while maintaining their Mexican roots. Perez, the band's drummer, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music "the soundtrack of the barrio."

Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single ("La Bamba") and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well -- and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.

Tickets go on sale to Lincoln and Rick Epting Foundation members on Thursday, January 29th at noon and then to the general public on Thursday, February 5th at noon.

Reserved seating tickets: $49.50 1st & 2nd sections, $39.50 3rd section, & $29.50 4th section, with $2.00 off for Lincoln Theatre members.

National Theatre Live

Behind the Beautiful Forevers

Thursday, Mar 19, 7:30 pm
Sunday, Mar 29, 2:00 pm

Meera Syal (The Kumars, Goodness Gracious Me, Rafta Rafta at the National) returns to the National Theatre, directed by Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).

Pulitzer Prize-winner Katherine Boo spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents. From her uncompromising book, winner of the National Book Award for Non-Fiction 2012, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale.

India is surging with global ambition. But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, full of people with plans of their own. Zehrunisa and her son Abdul aim to recycle enough rubbish to fund a proper house. Sunil, twelve and stunted, wants to eat until he's as tall as Kalu the thief. Asha seeks to steal government anti-poverty funds to turn herself into a 'first-class person', while her daughter Manju intends to become the slum's first female graduate.

But their schemes are fragile; global recession threatens the garbage trade, and another slum-dweller is about to make an accusation that will destroy herself and shatter the neighbourhood.

A black guy & a white guy walk into a theatre...

Ty Barnett and Ian Harris

Friday, March 27th at 8:00pm

Two guys approaching mid-life from different walks of life pontificating on race, religion, parenting, beliefs, politics and other things that keep us...

DIVIDED

If bleak prospects of the general state of the union have given you a case of the winter blues, we suggests that you check out the comedy of Ty Barnett and Ian Harris. Their Divided comedy tour willl rip on a wide variety of sacred cows, shibboleths, and carefully preserved beliefs, including the subjects most taboo at the dinner table: race, religion, and politics. Nothing is off-limits for these guys. If you watch a few of their YouTube videos you will see Burnett pimp-walk onto the stage, and tell his audience, "I'm glad gas prices are up, it means drive-by shootings have decreased." In another, Harris, deadpan, says "I picked up a book called Christianity for Dummies and thought – oh the irony."

The two comedians have been compared to such greats as Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, and Richard Pryor. Skeptical, smart and edgy, Divided is a rarity – a comedy show actually designed to make audiences think. Ty Barnett, who has appeared on Last Comic Standing and the Tonight Show, is the cool black dude in newsboy cap and earrings; Ian Harris, from Comedy Central, the balding and bespectacled hip white guy. From these widely divergent personas and perspectives the two funny men unite their audiences through shared laughter. We could use more of that.

Pietro Mascagni

Cavalleria Rusticana

and Ruggero Leoncavallo

Pagliacci

Saturday, Apr 25, 9:30 am
Sunday, May 3, 1:00 pm

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

Approximate HD runtime 3:30                   .

Man and Superman

Thursday, May 21, 7:30 pm
Sunday, May 31, 2:00 pm

Academy Award® nominee Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, Schindler's List; Oedipus at the National Theatre) plays Jack Tanner in this exhilarating reinvention of Shaw's witty, provocative classic.

A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live.

Jack Tanner, celebrated radical thinker and rich bachelor, seems an unlikely choice as guardian to the alluring heiress, Ann. But she takes it in her assured stride and, despite the love of a poet, she decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary. Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his.

Everyman

a new adaptation by Carol Ann Duffy

Thursday, Jul 16, 7:30 pm
Sunday, Jul 26, 2:00 pm

BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama's oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre's new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

Advance Tickets: $16 adults, $14 seniors, $12 students and children, with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre members. 10% off with purchase of 4 different plays in the NT Live Season.
