From a media release:

LINCOLN CENTER THEATER PRESENTS
JEFF GOLDBLUM & LAURIE METCALF IN
DOMESTICATED
OPENING NIGHT IS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4
AT THE MITZI E. NEWHOUSE THEATER


A New Play by Bruce Norris
Directed by Anna D. Shapiro
Running Time: 2 hours and 10 minutes, including an intermission

NEW YORK CITY - DOMESTICATED, by Bruce Norris, the Pulitzer- and Tony-winning author of CLYBOURNE PARK, dives into the conflagration of gender, power, sexuality and politics that emerges in a private relationship after a public humiliation. In this prescient new play, Laurie Metcalf and Jeff Goldblum play Judy and Bill Pulver whose marriage is thrust into the public eye by scandal. As told by Norris, their story is wickedly funny, deeply serious and anything but predictable.

In addition to the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Bruce Norris won London's Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for CLYBOURNE PARK. His other works include A Parallelogram, The Unmentionables, The Pain and the Itch, We All Went Down To Amsterdam, Purple Heart, and The Infidel.

Anna D. Shapiro directed Bruce Norris's A Parallelogram, The Unmentionables, The Pain and the Itch, Purple Heart and The Infidel. On Broadway, she directed August: Osage County, (Tony Award) and most recently The Motherfucker with the Hat.

Laurie Metcalf has appeared on Broadway in The Other Place and November, receiving Tony nominations for both. Other recent stage credits include the Broadway revival of Brighton Beach Memoirs, and Long Day's Journey Into Night in the West End. She won three Emmy Awards playing Roseanne's sister, Jackie, on the long-running series.

Jeff Goldblum's Broadway credits include Seminar and The Pillowman (Outer Critics' Circle Award and Drama Critics' Award). Film credits include Adam Resurrected, Nashville, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, The Big Chill and The Fly. He was nominated for an Academy Award for the live-action short, Little Surprises.

Join us on Thursday, December 19 from 6-6:45pm for a Platform Series event with cast members Laurie Metcalf and Jeff Goldblum. The event is free and will take place in the Vivian Beaumont Lobby. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning a half hour before the talk.

A Drop Of Midnight
October 13 & 15 2020A two-part conversation with Jason ‘Timbuktu’ Diakité and his creative team around the developmental process of creating his autobiographical theater project, A Drop of Midnight. In this conversation Jason will take us on his journey to becoming one of Sweden’s chart-topping hip-hop artists and a best-selling author. He’ll also share the story of how a mixtape from Brooklyn traveled across the waters to the tiny village of Lund, Sweden and altered the course of his life forever.

Review: Night of the Kings / La Nuit des Rois by Philippe Lacôte

Review: 
Night of the Kings
La Nuit des Rois
by Philippe LacôteA France, Côte d'Ivoire, Canada and Senegal co-productionNow Playing In The New York Film FestivalImageAfter Venice and the Toronto Film Festival, Philippe Lacôte's Night of the Kings has moved on to conquer New York City. A young pickpocket (Koné Bakary), is incarcerated in the giant La MACA prison, the largest in Côte d’Ivoire. The prison offers a hostile atmosphere, where the guards have long given up keeping order and the prisoners run the show, albeit confined within the prison walls. They dance, sing, and mingle at will in a common area called The Jungle. There is a violent power struggle between Lord Blackbeard (Steve Tientcheu), who runs things, and the younger leaders of other factions. Blackbeard is old and infirm, and he knows he can't hold on forever. But, he does want to hold on long enough to leave on his own terms. Blackbeard designates the newcomer as the new storyteller - the griot - called Roma…

Blues/Rock: The Cole Patenaude Band - Are You Happy Now? (Independent / 24 July 2020)

Blues/Rock:
The Cole Patenaude Band - Are You Happy Now?
(Independent / 24 July 2020) Buy the CD Big vocals and infectious grooves make up this release from The Cole Patenaude Band. It's modern blues with a classic sensibility, anchored by solid musicianship and upbeat songwriting. 
Keyboard player Dean Thiessen and Patenaude on guitar trade off solos and melodic lines to keep it interesting through a range of bluesy style, incorporating rock and country, with a pop song sheen on songs like For the Money. Would You Be Mine is more Elvis-esque rockabilly, while How To Love is an acoustic song with folky storytelling lyrics and feel. 
Compromise is a standout track, with a snarly guitar line and a churchy organ swelling underneath a nice bluesy beat. Horns aren't credited in the notes, but I swear I heard some on this and a couple of the other tracks. 
As a husband, father, and full-time mechanic based in Langley, British Columbia, finding the time to make his music was a challenge…
