London’s National Theatre Live

Young Marx

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.

Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway.

But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

Poetry Out Loud

Tuesday, January 23rd the Regional Poetry Out Loud competition will be held at 1 p.m at the Keystone Theatre – all are welcome to attend.

Snow date for this event is Tuesday, January 30th – same details.

The Bradford County Regional Arts Council Invites High School students in Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Sullivan, Tioga, and West Wyoming counties to compete. The student who is the regional winner will proceed to the state competition that will be held in Harrisburg on March 4 and 5th.

Presented by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation in partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and BCRAC, Poetry Out Loud is a program that encourages high school students to learn about great poetry through memorization, performance and competition.

Poetry Out Loud seeks to foster the next generation of literary readers by capitalizing on the latest trends in poetry – recitation and performance. The program builds on the resurgence of poetry as an oral art form, as seen in the slam poetry movement. Poetry Out Loud invites the dynamic aspects of slam poetry, spoken word, and theater into the English class. Through Poetry Out Loud, students can master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage.

Brian Keeler Art Show

A note from Brian-
Just a quick end-of-the-year note to let you know that we are featuring a special show of my paintings of Italy along with Ithaca area and Finger Lakes landscapes here at the North Star Gallery in Ithaca,NY.

Stop by this week before the new year to see this exhibit,now in its last few days. The gallery is in our 1865 Victorian house in Ithaca, just east of Cornell University on Snyder Hill Road at the corner of Besemer Hill Road.

As you’ve spent time in Italy, either in one of my workshops or on your own, I am sure you’ll find many pieces in the exhibit to your liking and perhaps to consider for your own collection.
