Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings were two of the most important figures in the 1970’s Outlaw movement within Country Music. Two great friends that shared many stages together over their careers that lasted decades and who both left behind a legacy of songs that are a part of the American Music Landscape. This is a full band concert extravaganza gives vintage Country fans the chance to Experience these Two Legends in a Live Show .

When it comes to The Outlaw Sound and Movement in Country Music one name stands tall above all others, and that name is Waylon Jennings. Waylon bucked the system by refusing to follow the Nashville Establishment and make music his way. His way broke down walls and left a catalog of some of the best known Country songs including hits like “Good Hearted Women”, “Mama’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”, “Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line” and the Number 1 TV Theme “Good Ole Boys” from the Dukes Of Hazard. Along with Waylon and what made him and his sound unique was his instance of using his band in the studio instead of the same studio players that made up most records out of Nashville. The sound of his band is raw and live even on recordings and for any fan of pure music, it is undeniable. Along with his sounds was Waylon’s swagger and stage persona, his dark aviator glasses, leather vest, black hat of an outlaw and his signature leather tooled Telecaster as his six shooter.

With this full band tribute to Waylon Jennings people will be able to relive or see for the first time the power and emotion of what was a Waylon show. The Cut time beat that was a staple of his sound along with the undeniable Bass lines and the Steel Guitar sounds of people like the late great Ralph Mooney and of course the Phase 90 Sound of Waylon’s Tele. These elements topped off with the Grizzled Baritone of his voice singing some of the most honest lyrics ever put on tape. Any fan of music will be entertained and blessed to have seen this show.


Legendary country rebel Johnny Cash comes to life in the re-creation show “Cash Is King”. With a career spanning half a century and countless hits, including “Folsom Prison Blues,” “I Walk the Line” and “Ring of Fire,” and the list goes on. The Man in Black became a musical icon. Now you can experience the father of Outlaw Country as he was in his prime, from his Sun Records days to his historic concert at Folsom Prison. Singer Brian Chicoine captures Cash’s trademark baritone, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Johnny Cash show without Mrs. Cash, June Carter, brought to life by Vicky St. Pierre on such classic duets as “Jackson.” With authentic costumes and stories from Cash’s eventful life, Cash Is King is the true Johnny Cash experience.

Brian Chicoine: Lead Vocals, Acoustic & Electric Guitars, Harmonica
Scott Tyler: Electric Guitars, Pedal Steel, Harmony Vocals
Junior Cain: Electric & Dog House Double Bass

Have you ever been to a film musical and had the uncontrollable urge to burst into song?
Do you muse over the endless tailoring opportunities for chintz curtains?
Have you always wondered what it would be like to wear a wimple?

Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music is your chance to test your vocal range with several hundred other assorted nuns, Von Trapp family members and Julie Andrews look-a-likes.

The evening begins with a live show in which your host will lead you through a vocal warm-up, judge the fancy dress competition and award the prizes. Costumes are not compulsory but they are highly recommended and you will be amazed at the inventiveness on display. The host will then show you how to use your free goody bag throughout the film and suggest some appropriate heckles and accompanying actions (such as hissing the countess, barking at Rolf and, of course, cheering for Julie).

Then, you sit back and watch the original 1965 movie in glorious Technicolor ™ with the lyrics for all the songs on the screen, so you won’t miss a chance to sing your hearts out. The audience takes over as the star of the show from this point and almost anything can happen – the first rule of Sing-a-long-a is THERE ARE NO RULES!

Running Time: Approximately 3 hours, 20 minutes

He is a favorite on the music festival circuit with performances at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Capetown Jazz Festival, Chico World Music Festival and Kaunas Jazz.

ULTRASONIC ROCK ORCHESTRA

performs

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

SEE AND HEAR A TASTE OF URO’S “Jesus Christ Superstar”!

As the Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra’s first studio recording, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar—A 21st Century Tribute to the Brown Album’ was the project that put so many musicians and singers together prompting Sal and Alan to realize they had an opportunity to make some crazy, new, giant, rock band. Prior to this recording, the URO didn’t exist.

The album itself was born out of the URO co-founder’s mutual admiration of this classic, definitive rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice - first recorded in 1970 with Ian Gillan of Deep Purple singing ‘Jesus’ (the fabled ‘Brown Album.’)

Now, for the first time on the Regent stage, the URO will perform the 26 song epic ‘live’ on stage - a mammoth undertaking - one sure to elicit electrifying moments.

Groovy Gustafer Yellowgold is a friendly fellow who came from the Sun and landed in the Minnesota woods. Morgan Taylor, songwriter/illustrator, developed the “musical moving storybook” Gustafer Yellowgold experience as equal parts pop rock concert and hand-drawn cartoon movie.

Gustafer Yellowgold’s Show, a funny and touching multi-media concert of music, stories and animation, will be coming to The Regent to celebrate the release of Gustafer Yellowgold’s Wisdom Tooth of Wisdom, the sixth offering in the Gustafer Yellowgold series, where former Sun-resident Gustafer Yellowgold traverses the woodlands of Minnesota to find the owner of the world’s largest and most mysterious molar.

This performance will be celebrating and feature songs and videos from the brand new release, Gustafer Yellowgold’s Wisdom Tooth of Wisdom, along with plenty of fan favorites from the five previous award-winning Gustafer Yellowgold DVDs, all filled with the one-of-a-kind blend of blissful pop music, lyrical poignancy, and cartoon absurdity.

Check out this video—“I Can’t Feel My Face”—from the new DVD!

Read the Reviews!

“The Carl Palmer Band was a sonic smorgasbord for these ProgRock fans. Arguably the greatest drummer since Buddy Rich, Palmer is as good now as he ever was.” —Daniel Knighton, San Diego Concerts Examiner

“Palmer Unleashes The Thunder On His Current Tour”—Pollstar

“Palmer and his players infuse these tunes with flowing musical diversity, ranging from jazzy improvisation, soaring stylized guitar leads, funk bass lines, classical melodies, and hard rock shredding, completed with Palmer rounding out the final song with a dynamic drum solo. - this is a listening experience.”—Tom Wright, Hollywood Today

” This is however a uber-clever jam fest that takes in jazz fusion, classical and some funk. This is fascinating stuff to listen to…”—Marty Dodge, Seattle Post

“... Many people were open-mouthed as he bent over the drums & cymbals & was able to make the drumsticks “REVOLVE” on the drum set without his even holding them at one point… There was thunderous applause for that, and a similar response to virtually everything the group played…” 
—VOS- Edge.com Los Angeles, YAHOO!.com

“...a drummer near the height of his powers, clearly in tune with the past and the present.”—Ken Micallef, Modern Drummer

“The world’s greatest living drummer, Carl Palmer, wowed a packed house at B.B. Kings on October 19th with his trio, treating the assembled throng to a show that included interpretations of Emerson, Lake and Palmer material, wonderful improvisatory sections and a private drum clinic.” —Steve Janowsky, ReviewFix.com

“Several standing ovations drew sincere appreciation from Carl Palmer and his band. Carl Palmer’s drumming continues to be listed in the top 10 when many make their top drummers of all time list.” —George Burrows, Cedar Rapids Examiner

“Carl Palmer, the “P” of ELP, still tours and performs with the energy of an artist half his age.  There’s an infectious exuberance about Palmer that is hard to ignore.” —Ken Kolasinski, Montgomery News Media

“Palmer has lost none of his steam or power, and seems invigorated by the young guys (in his band). His drums drive the trio’s powerful playing with the same energy he brought to ELP in the 1970s.” —Howard Whitman, Classic Rock Revisted

“His guitarist, Paul Bielatowicz, absolutely blisters the material, and Palmer matches him note for note. What used to sound majestic (or, to some, bombastic; it was called derisively called “art rock” back in the day) now packs a monster wallop.”—Marc Allan, NUVO

Film archivist David (Rupert Evans) has been having a rough time lately, as he suspects that his wife Alice (Hannah Hoekstra) has been cheating on him with Alex (Carl Shaaban), one of her work clients. This stress is compounded when David’s work partner Claire (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) gives him a reel of to-be-archived footage that shows that his house was the setting for a brutal murder in 1902. Becoming progressively more unsettled and unhinged, David begins to believe that a spectral presence is in his house and ends up following his wife to a nearby canal, where he discovers that she is indeed having an affair with Alex. When Alice goes missing shortly afterwards, David contacts the police- only to become the prime suspect in her disappearance. As the police grow more convinced that David has murdered his wife, he struggles to find proof of his growing suspicion that something otherworldly was instead responsible.

Official 2014 Tribeca Film Festival Trailer

Filming for The Canal took place in Dublin, Ireland during the summer of 2013, with funding from the Irish Film Board and Section 481, Ireland’s tax incentive for films and television. While creating the script, Director/Writer Ivan Kavanagh decided to draw upon his own fears and wrote the script in a “start-to-finish” manner, beginning with the first page of the script.  He also heavily focused on the movie’s sound, as he wanted it to be “as important as the picture” and did not utilize any pre-recorded archived sounds. Kavanagh experienced some difficulty with filming the footage for the 1902 reel, as he wanted it to look identical to Louis Lumière’s Feeding the Baby. He tested out different camera formats before finally filming the finished product with a 1915 Universal movie camera and using the “lowest speed B&W 35mm stock we could get our hands on”.

About Steve Sweeney
Dubbed by one admirer “the undisputed King of Boston comedy,” Sweeney embodies, almost literally, the city he calls home. A master of dialects and character voices, Sweeney can riff on everyone from Dorchester church ladies to Beacon Hill pols to certain radio personalities who seem a little too old to be peddling rock and roll to younger generations. In fact, while Sweeney has played to national audiences many times throughout his thirty-year career – not only by touring as a stand-up but also through roles in sitcoms and movies – he is so thoroughly Bostonian that he merits his own stop on the Freedom Trail.

STEVE SWEENEY AT DUNKIN’ DONUTS

About Jim McCue
A mixture of witty “A-list material” and his ability to work off-script has earned Jim McCue the title “Boston’s King of Crowd Work!” It’s not only his height of six foot six that makes Jim stand head and shoulders above club comedians of the “stick-to-the-script” variety. Jim blends thought-provoking material and uncanny improv skills with a style that encourages audience participation. No two shows are ever the same!

Jim has been featured on Comedy Central, Comcast Comedy Spotlight, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and “Roughing It” on NESN in his native New England. Jim also founded and currently runs The Boston Comedy Festival. He works in top comedy clubs in Boston, Las Vegas, New York, Dublin, Montreal and Edinburgh.

Since 1999 Jim has also entertained U.S. troops at more than 100 bases around the world. An account of his experiences performing for the troops has recently been published in Embedded Comedian which Jim describes as a “field manual for comedians in a war zone.”

About Ryan B. Casey
Nationally recognized tap dancer Ryan P. Casey will perform a tribute to Fred Astaire, and his choreography “Ball Change,” an innovative tap routine with basketballs, will be performed by members of the Legacy Dance Company, the Regent’s resident dance troupe.

About Peggy Ellis
Peggy Ellis is a NYC-based writer, stand-up comedian and producer.  Highlights include performances at New York’s Comic Strip Live, Gotham Comedy Club, and Carolines on Broadway.  When not grabbing the mic, current projects include the development of two original film scripts and co-producing the independent feature film TRICK INSTINCT, slated to shoot in early 2015.  See Peggy Ellis online…

About Angela Rossi
Angela Rossi is a singer from Boston, Massachusetts. Her current musical endeavors include writing new material with her band Street Chalk, working as a dancer for Northern Lights Entertainment, and competing on the New England based talent show Community Auditions.

“We all know the music of Peter, Paul and Mary—folk classics that remain the soundtrack for generations. But our patrons were thrilled to experience the relevancy of that music, and how it resonates through today’s headlines, when Peter Yarrow brought his solo show to the Tower Theatre. It was so much more than a nostalgia show. Peter connected with the sold-out audience in ways that went well beyond a normal concert: he encouraged sing-alongs and audience participation; he signed autographs at intermission; he personally greeted each and every one of our VIPs and members; he even auctioned two personalized guitars to raise money for our educational outreach programs. Peter turned our theatre into his living room. He created an inclusive atmosphere, encouraging each of us to change our part of the world. It was a memorable evening rooted in the historic milestones of his past, yet focused on the current issues that continue to call him to activism. We all know how all the songs of Peter, Paul and Mary sound; what a rare treat to hear what Peter thinks of them. “

–Ray Solley, Executive Director, Tower Theatre Foundation, Bend, Oregon


About Peter Yarrow
Peter Yarrow’s talents as a creative artist—both with the legendary trio Peter, Paul & Mary and as a solo performer—are frequently directed at using music to convey a message of humanity and caring. His gift for songwriting has produced some of the most moving songs from Peter, Paul & Mary, including “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” “Day is Done”, “Light One Candle” and “The Great Mandala.” As a member of the renowned musical trio, Yarrow has earned multiple gold and platinum albums, as well as numerous GRAMMYs.

Over the years, many issues have moved Peter to commit his time and talent: equal rights, peace, the environment, gender equality, homelessness, hospice care, and education. All have utilized his skills as both a performer and an organizer. Peter Yarrow’s life and work – culminating in the founding and leadership of Operation Respect with its “Don’t Laugh At Me” initiative – is based on his passionate belief that music, with its power to build community and catalyze change, can be a particularly powerful organizing tool.

“Yes, it will be nostalgic for many. But on another level, it will bring them a sense of what is still possible. Yes, they will sing ‘Leaving on a Jet Plane,’ and I will give them a sense of the current history of what this music is doing, and why it’s important. So it will be a history lesson, it will be a singalong that inspires, but it will also assert the importance of the continuation of this kind of music in people’s lives today. And where we’re going from here in those terms. It’s not necessarily a big lecture — it’s inherent in the music. They’ll get it. I know it, ’cause that’s what I do.” - Peter Yarrow

MOVIE TRAILER

Aptly serene in tone, this pleasing documentary by Guido Santi and Tina Mascara (of the excellent “Chris and Don: A Love Story”) has a built-in mix of retro celebrity and spiritual appeal that should serve it well in attracting niche buyers in all formats.

The grandson of fabled tastemaker and Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, raised by his equally glamorous parents in globe-trotting high style — at least until they divorced, at which point he and a brother were left more or less to their own devices in Paris — Vreeland became fascinated by photography in his teens. Fortunately, his grandmother was able to secure him an immediate apprenticeship under legendary snapper Irving Penn; he also worked with Richard Avedon before striking out on his own.

Described as being “a very committed dandy” and “a complete gentleman in terms of comportment,” he dated high-profile women and otherwise led an externally glamorous life. But it all left him dissatisfied. He began meditating, then in the late ’70s took the then-shocking step of shaving his head from “some desire to cleanse … to be out there naked, in a sense.”

Of course, that haircut would prove quite convenient when he found his calling, as did the theft of his cameras during an apartment break-in, since a resulting insurance settlement bankrolled several years of studying Buddhism. When Vreeland decided to become a monk, the Dalai Lama himself sent him to a Tibetan refugee settlement just across the Indian border. He stayed there for years as the monastery’s population swelled. He then moved back to the U.S., ghostwriting books for His Holiness, and translating lectures for his other spiritual master, Khylonga Rinpoche.

More recently, he oversaw the building of a badly needed larger monastic complex to replace his old one. When the 2008 economic crash made many promised donations go up in smoke, he re-entered the world of photography, traveling around the globe raising nearly half a million dollars selling his own new images. Most recently, he was installed as the now-completed Rato Monastery’s abbot — the first Westerner in nearly three millennia of Tibetan Buddhist history to achieve such a position.

Clearly regarded with great affection by his mentors (as well as supporters like Richard Gere), Vreeland makes very pleasant company, a man who can namedrop “Jackie” (as in Kennedy Onassis) and “His Holiness” without the least hint of ego. The directors adopt a similarly unpretentious, bemused tone in following him around. Subject’s past adventures are illustrated in animation segments done in a deliberately simple, ’70s TV-cartoon style — an offbeat choice that somehow seems just right.

Attractive lensing and scoring grace a thoughtful tech/design package.

For its first performance of 2014-2015, Bay Colony Brass “steps up” to distinguishing marches from dances. The solemn intoning of Britten’s Russian Funeral, the celebratory peals of Penderecki’s Danziger Fanfare (dedicated to Lech Wałęsa), and the fervent processions of Schumann’s Four Marches depict different eras of human history marching by. Meanwhile, the courtly French overture from Bach’s Suite No. 3 elegantly yields to lively folk dance and song in Karel Husa’s Divertimento and Robert Starer’s Serenade; Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain summons the wild dancing of a witches’ sabbath. Conductor Channing Yu leads the 20-member brass and percussion ensemble.

It’s Frank Zappa meets Pete Seeger!  •  It’s Parliament- Funkadelic and Spike Jones meet Mr. Rogers!  •  It’s Miriam Makeba and Igor Stravinsky meet Captain Kangaroo!

Throw out the rules when Billy Jonas hits the stage! It’s a musical conversation… a sonic celebration … a splendiferous gathering of old and young, because at a Billy Jonas show, the ensemble is… everyone.

Fun for All Ages
Billy Jonas is one of those rare performers who can engage and delight both young and adult audiences.  Billy’s clear tenor voice is well-suited to a plethora of venues, from intimate settings and workshop sessions to large halls and outdoor festivals. For more than two decades, his creative and interactive performances have enchanted and inspired folks from all walks of life — touching hearts, souls, and minds world-wide .  As a founding member of the acclaimed duo “The Billys,” Billy Jonas has made innovative use of “found objects.” He helps audiences discover the music within common items … and within themselves. Billy Jonas’ recordings and live concerts across the US and Canada have generated an enthusiastic following. His CD “What Kind of Cat are You?!” received multiple awards including a First Place/Gold from AFIM (American Federation of Independent Musicians), and a Parent’s Choice Gold.  Jonas’ videos have garnered critical acclaim, including Parents Choice Awards and a New York Times “Best” listing.

The Concert Experience
Billy Jonas’ music is percussion-based, making use of found objects (buckets, broom handles, bottles, key chains and more) as well as traditional instruments. But on any given day, the specific nature of this unforgettable neo-tribal hootenanny is largely determined and shaped by the audience. He tailors both his song selection and its presentation to suit the needs and vibe of each audience. So every Billy Jonas concert is a unique experience. He makes spirited, straightforward music that is accessible to anyone and everyone, regardless of age or cultural background. The big-tent festival quality of Billy’s music facilitates connection and community while fostering inspiration and… most importantly… FUN. Billy Jonas has shared stages with many renowned artists, including Patti Larkin, Ani DiFranco, David Wilcox, Richard Thompson, and Pete Seeger. His upbeat, engaging presence (both onstage and off) encourages active audience participation. His concerts are a magical mix of stagecraft and wholesome, open-ended, anything-can- happen spontaneity. Official Website

NO STATIC
WATCH NO STATIC LIVE!     
New England’s Ultimate Live Band Performs the Music of Steely Dan

Soulful harmonies, sophisticated songwriting, deep grooves and superlative musicianship are just a few hallmarks of Steely Dan’s vast catalog. 
Playing the hits as well as deeper cuts from Steely Dan’s varied musical catalog, Boston’s own No Static makes it clear why many critics call this music the most perfect fusion of jazz, rock, and R&B musical styles ever achieved. Satisfy your craving for melody, harmony, poetry and groove with an evening of No Static.

Inspired by the genius of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, by the hundreds of artists, session and sidemen who’ve helped create their legacy, No Static has been delivering impeccable live performances of this timeless music for almost 10 years.

“Musical dedication is what made Steely Dan such a great band. And No Static follows in that tradition. They craft the songs beautifully, but also warmly bring their own personalities to the sound. Using multiple singers gives a different touch—and yet they’re all on the same page when it comes to paying deep and impressive homage to one of rock’s greatest, most intelligent groups. See No Static if you can—and prepare to enjoy yourself.’’—Steve Morse, longtime Boston Globe correspondent

Fil Ramil, Vocals- Guitar, Lydia Harrell - Vocals, Rosemary St. George - Vocals,  Brad Kohl - Tenor and Alto Sax, Walter Platt - Trumpet,  Bob Holfelder - Trombone, Mitch Rodriguez - Lead Guitar, Rob Currier - Keyboards, Jamie Sheldon - Bass, and Barry Lit - Drums.


INTRODUCTION
WATCH INTRODUCTION LIVE!      Only the Beginning
“Introduction” is the opening song on Chicago’s first album; the beginning of a musical legacy that spans five decades.

While critics have struggled to define them,what cannot be argued is their unparalleled success. Chicago is the first American band to chart in the top forty in each of five decades. In Billboard Magazine’s list of Top 100 artists of all time, Chicago came in at #13, the highest charting American band. Record sales top the 120 million mark, and include 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5 Gold singles.

Introduction -The Chicago Experience consists of New England’s finest and most seasoned musicians. Our project was created from a deep respect for Chicago and their music. What we hope this experience will bring to our audience is not only Chicago’s tremendous catalogue, but a retrospective of the times and events that shaped their lives and their writing.

Come see Introduction and rediscover The Chicago Experience ...

A gorgeous look inside honeybee colonies

Taking a journey through the honeybee colonies in California, Switzerland, China, and Australia, “More Than Honey” explores bee decimation. The same scenario is repeated around the world: 50%-90% of bees are disappearing from colony to colony. The bee epidemic has started a phenomenon known in the scientist community as, “Colony Collapse Disorder.” The dying species has had a negative global effect, and without the bee population, our humanity will slowly be affected.

Director and writer, Markus Imhoof travels from the different regions to interview beekeepers’ work to preserve their colonies. With their knowledge and practice in the bee world, the beekeepers show the daily paradox working in both natures’ rhythm and against it.

“This. Film. Is. Fascinating.” – Cleveland International Film Fest*

“Surprisingly up-close images of bees at rest and in flight give buzz to an inescapably downbeat topic”

Featuring 2011 Grammy nominated vocalist Judy Pancoast

Pancoast was just eleven years old when her older sister told her about a song she’d heard on the radio, and said that the girl singing it sounded “just like you.”  That was the summer of 1970, and when Judy finally heard “(They Long to Be) Close to You” it was the beginning of a childhood adulation that would last well into her adult years.  She spent her adolescent and teen years listening nearly non-stop to the music of the brother and sister duo who called themselves “Carpenters,” and she became one of the charter members of their fan club at age 12. 

Judy’s natural rich alto voice blended well with Karen’s, and she spent countless hours in front of a mirror with a hair brush “microphone” mimicking her idol’s voice.  Later, while a music major at the University of Maine, she was advised to “stop trying to sound like Karen Carpenter,” but although she managed finally to all but erase the traces of Karen’s styling, the influence had already had its impact.  Randy Schmidt, author of “Little Girl Blue: the Life of Karen Carpenter” says this about Judy: “…her velvety voice, phrasing and conversational delivery of a song are all products of years spent listening to the timeless recordings of the Carpenters. Her passion and joy for the material make Judy the perfect vocalist to pay tribute.”

“... Pancoast kept her audience thoroughly entertained for over two hours, reaching people on an emotional level. Pancoast didn’t settle for imitation. She channeled the essence of what The Carpenters always tried to do: show respect and warmth for the people they were singing to. And Pancoast has a voice to handle the technical challenges and emotive qualities of that music…. ”—Bill Copeland Music News

This Show is Sold Out! Thank you!

Between Identity, Willpower, and Passion:
This is Tango Now’s Identidad Renews the Tango Experience on the Stage

It is midnight outside: a magical and mystical time for hundreds of cultures past and present.  Respect, appreciation and fear for this moment infuses the bodies and minds of those brave enough to venture on it.  In Tango the midnight, its darkness, and the pulse of the city at that very moment conjures the deepest introspection, and opens up a window for change. But more than a moment in time, the midnight is a portal, it represents the end and the beginning, when and where things die, are born, and reborn, and this cycle goes on repeating itself for all eternity.

It is midnight inside: in the depths of people’s hearts and minds.  The introspective mood allows our main character, the Marionette, to realize her condition.  Devoid of freewill she suddenly grasps the distressing reality that, like most everyone around her, she has been manipulated her entire life.  On her side, the Duende, the incarnation and materialization of the midnight, the spirit of passion and change.  Against her, the Puppeteer, the manipulator, the one who won’t let her go.  What follows is a struggle for freedom, for a new identity, for willpower, and for the right to live life with the fullest of passions.

This is Tango Now’s Identidad, is the creation of three highly accomplished artists: dancers and choreographers Fernanda Ghi & Guillermo Merlo, and musician and anthropologist Alfredo Minetti.  They felt a gap in the world of tango shows as well as a need from contemporary audiences that was unfulfilled.  They decided then to go beyond the traditional tango show, creating a complete sensorial experience, using the powerful rationality and emotiveness, and the raw intensity and kinetic energy that only tango has, and created a story that resonates with any person living in the present.  In order to stage it, they decided for a tango quartet (bandoneón, violin, piano and double bass) and selected some of the greatest tangos composed and arranged by Osvaldo Pugliese and Astor Piazzolla.  They selected two more couples of dancers to share the stage with Fernanda & Guillermo, who choreographed the show with some of the best dance one will ever see. And finally, they teamed up with one of the greatest light designers in South America, Aníbal Rea, who took the challenge to add yet another incredible layer to this experience. The result is a tango experience unlike any other!

Every detail of this show has been meticulously and creatively crafted in order to create a magical and mystical experience for the senses.  Much more than performance takes place in the stage.  The trio designed the show to produce a synergy between the performers and spectators.  The nostalgia, sensuality, vulnerability, irony, and passion of tango pour out from the stage infusing every spectator.  The main goal of the performers is to touch the souls of the audiences. Through the deep melancholic passion and cathartic introspection of the tango, audiences will come to see their surroundings with the renewed spirit that the mythical midnight allows — feeling the world as a tango.

Renowned Rock & Roll photographer Kevin Mazur, has pulled together an impressive team for his first feature-length documentary about the changing face of celebrity and the many ways that the media has conveyed, defined, and even demeaned what it means to be famous today.Taking a historical ride through the early days of Hollywood and the rise of the paparazzi, $ellebrity explores how fame has changed from the highly-structured studio system to the current free-for-all press and paparazzi frenzy.

Candid interviews with Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Sara Jessica Parker, and Kid Rock among others, help to give a glimpse into the lives of those on the front lines of our increasingly obsessive world of pop culture celebrity.

Fame is now a national pastime, it is what millions of us follow, believe in and seemingly what we care about most - as well as a billion dollar-a-year industry.  But what does our intense fascination with celebrity say about us? And how much is too high a price to pay for our own curiosity run rampant? $ellebrity captures the free-for-all of pop culture today and the ever-changing face of fame.

“An engrossing study in the communication possible…between man and beast.”
- Variety

“That rare gem that reaches out to anyone with a soul and leaves an indelible impression”
- Collider.com

“A crowd-pleaser with a big heart”
- The Hollywood Reporter

Each year thousands of wild horses are rounded up and removed from public lands by the U.S. Government. All will need permanent homes. None has ever been touched by a human hand.

Wild Horse, Wild Ride tells the story of the Extreme Mustang Makeover Challenge, an annual contest that dares 100 people to each tame a totally wild mustang in order to get it adopted into a better life beyond federal corrals.

Stunning and poignant, Alex Dawson and Greg Gricus’ debut feature documentary chronicles a handful of unforgettable characters from their first uneasy meeting with their horses and over three months as they attempt to transform from scared strangers to the closest of companions.

Eventually all will converge in Fort Worth, Texas, to compete against each other and offer the horses up for adoption at an auction in which the trainers, if they wish to keep their horses, must bid against the public.
Hailed by The Hollywood Reporter as a “crowd-pleaser with a big heart,” the film traverses across the United States to tell stories of the profound the bonds that can develop between people and animals. From the rolling hills of New Hampshire to the Navajo Nation to the heart of Cowboy Country, the film captures a journey that is at times harrowing, humorous, heartwarming and heartbreaking as these wild spirits - both human and horse - embark on the ride of their lives.

Powderwhore Productions, a backcountry ski film company based in Utah, is proud to announce its eighth annual ski movie, called “Choose Your Adventure.” The film will premiere at Brewvies in Salt Lake City on September 26th 2012, followed by a 50 city TOUR through ski towns throughout North America.

This movie is such a mixed bag of characters, exotic locations and action that we wanted to get that point across with the title. You really can’t guess what’s coming next in this film, like the Choose Your Own Adventure book series we enjoyed growing up. We’re exploring an abandoned mining town in the Arctic, dropping cliffs with Hugo Harrison in British Columbia, plunging into the Antarctic Sea in speedos, blasting through deep powder, catching up with crusty locals in the Wasatch and more.

Our interest lies in finding people with real stories and ski objectives. We wanted to tag along and capture their actions and motivation for heading into the mountains, creating more of an authentic experience. We traveled light and moved fast to avoid interfering with the actual adventures as they unfolded.

Despite the underwhelming winter of 2011-12, in which snowfall reached near record lows and unstable avalanche conditions,the Powderwhores were able to make the most of the conditions at home and abroad, with trips to Cerro Castillo, Chile; La Grave, France; the Antarctic Peninsula; Svalbard, Norway; Mount Foraker, Alaska; British Columbia, Canada, and the Wasatch Mountains in Utah.

The film features an array of characters from salty backcountry veterans to some of the top skiers and snowboarders, including Chris Davenport, Jake Sakson, Andrew McLean, Seth Wescott, Dylan Freed, Noah Howell, Matt Reardon, Drew Stoecklein, Forrest Coots, Ian Provo, Neil Provo, Chuck Mumford, Darrell Finlayson, Bob Athey, PY Leblanc, Jason Thompson,Todd Stuart and Hugo Harrison.

In the end, this is a feature-length ski film that celebrates exotic locations, wild adventures, and the dedicated personalities writing their own stories in snow.

A Family Folk Chorale concert is great fun for all ages.  As always, the audience is an integral part of the show.  You’ll be inspired by seeing families making music together, and you won’t want to miss singing “Let It Be” and “All You Need is Love” with 500 other voices! 

The Family Folk Chorale has been performing since 1999.  Our 60 voices – ages 5-75 – are joined by a stellar band and guest instrumentalists.  Artistic Director Christopher Eastburn’s sensitive arrangements will mirror the Beatles’ original recordings and also bring new depth to some of their greatest songs.

This will be a magical mystery tour that will remind you and your family of how much fun it is to sing together!

ABOUT JON COHAN AND HIS GOLDEN RULERS
Jon Cohan and His Golden Rulers play classic American blues, rhythm and blues, soul, funk, and rock and roll from the 1950s - 1970s. Drummer and bandleader Jon Cohan formed the band in 2009 with some of his favorite local musicians to perform at Right Turn Live, a sober cafe in Arlington, MA. Cohan’s goal was simple: to introduce audiences to the great groove-based music he grew up listening to. Since its inception the band has grown into a nine-piece outfit. Boston rock stalwarts like Phil Kaplan of Men and Volts and Sal Baglio of The Stompers join dynamic singer Erica Rothenberg, guitarist Mike Pyle, bassist Jeff Keithline, percussionist Stephen Whitney, saxophonist Artie Camacho, and keyboardist Bob Camacho. The combined talents of the musicians brings a fresh and swinging interpretation to some of the finest examples of American music, including some tasty, rockin’ Holiday tunes for this special Regent concert. 

ABOUT RYAN CASEY
At 6’8″, Ryan P. Casey looks more suited for the basketball court than the stage. But his keen ear for the rhythms of words and the rhythms of dance has launched his career as a talented writer who is “fast becoming recognized as one of the top tap dance soloists in the country.” Ryan has worked with such great instructors and choreographers as Brenda Bufalino, Heather Cornell, Michelle Dorrance, Barbara Duffy, Sean Fielder, Derick K. Grant, Adrienne Hawkins, Josh Hilberman, Jeannie Hill, Jimmy Locust, Drika Overton, Jason Samuels Smith, Sarah Petronio, Sue Ronson and Dianne Walker.

ABOUT MATIAS LETELIER
Matias is a professional magician with more than 15 years of experience in magic shows and family entertainment. He has performed in the USA, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia. He performs a variety of magic and illusion shows hundreds of times per year. He was the top children’s magician in Chile before moving to the USA.

ABOUT JERRY BISANTZ
Local actor Jerry Bisantz will perform selected monologues from his IRNE nominated (Best Actor) portrayal of beat writer Jack Kerouac, written by playwright Patrick Fenton, from the original play Kerouac’s Last Call, which will appear in early 2013 at the new Regent Underground Theater (The “RUT”)

Dan Foley, a virtuoso juggler and skilled comedian, will keep both adults and children laughing and amazed! Dan is best known as the homely half of the fabulous juggling duo, the Airborne Comedians—sometimes appearing at the Boston Museum of Science and other venues as the Amazing Nano Brothers.

There is something very special about dance. A special magic to the human body moving well that we can all relate to. Add captivating music, glamour and pageantry and no wonder TV dance shows became such an overnight success. 

  The latest show from the Bellydance Superstars is the culmination of 10 years of touring the world – over 800 shows in 25 countries – pushing the boundaries of the art of bellydance to capture the artistry, magic and passion of this unique dance in all its variety.  So when looking for a name for the 2012-2013 show only one name seemed to sum up what it would be :  “THE MAGIC OF DANCE”

  The Bellydance Superstars did not have the luxury of following in another’s footsteps; developing and improving on the work of others along a known course.  They were the first and only full time bellydance show touring the mainstream dance world.  As such they had a lot to prove, mindsets to change and educate as they defined and expanded on the understanding of what this dance art was.  They set a string of firsts; from national TV broadcasts of their shows in North America, Japan, China and elsewhere to performing top level shows in some of the most prestigious venues in the world; venues heretofore reserved for the likes of the ballet or super successful shows like Riverdance.  Their DVDs and CDs are the best known and distributed the world over – even officially released in China.

    Above all the Bellydance Superstars are known for a great show – fast paced, lots of variety in music and dance styles, not afraid to fuse other dance arts from ballet to African into their repertoire; seeing bellydance as a big picture with a big future.  As in past shows, the vibrant and exciting music is matched only by the many beautiful costume changes for each number.  All in all when you have great dancers, great music, beautiful costumes, and a dedicated team on a mission to deliver, surprise and excite you will definitely achieve a Magic – that is what THE MAGIC OF DANCE is set to do.

Jimi Hendrix 70th Birthday Celebration Double Feature

7:15pm: “Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child”—his legendary story in his own words.  (91 minutes)

9:00pm: “Jimi Plays Berkeley”—restored and expanded 2012 edition.  (72 minutes)

Together, these films present a rare chance for both Hendrix enthusiasts and those simply curious as to what the fuss is all about to learn about his life and legacy, while coming as close as possible to witnessing him perform live in all his sonic power and visual splendor.

Voodoo Child is filled with never-before-seen photographs and film footage from the Hendrix family archive and features a soundtrack that includes such iconic Hendrix recordings as “Purple Haze,” “Hey Joe,” “Fire,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” together with never-before-heard live performances. Funk legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Bootsy Collins of Parliament-Funkadelic renown is featured as the voice of Jimi Hendrix.

Jimi Plays Berkeley showcases some of Hendrix’s finest ever performances filmed over two concerts at the Berkeley (California) Community Theatre on May 30, 1970. The film documents the political unrest and student uprisings in Berkeley juxtaposed against blistering Hendrix live performances of “Johnny B. Goode,” “Star Spangled Banner,” “I Don’t Live Today” and, “Purple Haze. This new digitally restored transfer from the original 16mm negative includes more than 15 minutes of newly discovered, previously unseen documentary and performance footage of such classic songs as “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Machine Gun” and “Hear My Train A Comin’” not featured in the original film release.

On December 10, 2007, Led Zeppelin took the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-­hour-­plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues­‐infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin. Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalogue including landmark tracks “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock And Roll,” “Kashmir,” and “Stairway To Heaven.”

Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band’s first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery. Now, for the first time, fans in over 40 territories worldwide will be able to get a front row seat to experience this historic event in glorious high definition and incredible surround sound. Experience it on the big screen for a strictly limited period only.

What Jimi Hendrix accomplished in the span of four short years before his death in 1970 at age 27 is nothing short of phenomenal. Now, more than four decades later, Hendrix is widely considered the greatest electric guitarist of all time. On Tuesday, November 13, Arlington Community Education and the Regent Theatre will co-host Hendrix at 70, a panel discussion of the life, music and legacy of this rock icon. The program will take place in the Arlington High School Media Center, 869 Massachusetts Avenue.

Panelists include Steve Morse, journalist and long-time Boston Globe music editor; Joel J. Brattin, Hendrix scholar and Professor of Humanities at Worcester Polytechnic Institute; and Carter Alan, author and host of “Sunday Morning Blues” on WZLX/Boston. Leland Stein, Regent Theatre co-owner and lifelong Hendrix enthusiast, will moderate the panel discussion and the Q&A to follow.

The program will explore Hendrix’s legacy and his diverse – and, at times, surprising – influences, and the tremendous impact he has had on a wide swath of music and musicians that followed him. Panelists will highlight songs from his non-hit repertoire with a focus on his gentler side and more lyrical tunes – the hidden Hendrix beyond ”Purple Haze” and “Hey Joe” and the contemplative, humble man behind the flamboyant stage persona.

In the days following this event, the Regent Theatre will host several additional programs in celebration of Hendrix’s 70th birthday.

More than 40 years after their debut album, The Doors’ music and legacy are more influential than ever before. Though they’ve had scores of imitators, there’s never been another band quite like them and this film will appeal to their many fans – both their original followers and a younger generation discovering The Doors now.

“His humble sense of humility is what makes Trapper’s songs so strong… He makes you feel like you are the person he’s singing about.  The Few & the Far Between is another strong addition to the Chris Trapper/Push Stars catalog.”  Popdose


CHRIS TRAPPER began his career as the front man for late-90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records).  With four CD releases and several high profile national tours—including a run with Matchbox Twenty—The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent. 

As a modern day singer /songwriter, Chris is most known for his song This Time, the #1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for AUGUST RUSH (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers /Warner Bros Pictures). 

The newest CD (released October 2011), The Few & The Far Between, is a collection of 14 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper.  This new work was Produced, Recorded and Mixed by Dan McLoughlin (The Push Stars, Mike Peters, Juliana Hatfield) at the Vault Recording Studio, Hoboken, NJ.

Focus tracks include the CD opener, Here All Along, featuring guest vocals by Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, The More I Think featuring vocals and slide guitar by Colin Hay of Men at Work and Ghost In Your Arms featuring backing vocals from Boston’s own Kristen Cifelli. 

The New York Times calls his work “classic pop perfection.”

A prolific songwriter, Chris can boast high profile film placements including There’s Something About Mary (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), The Devil Wears Prada (Meryl Streep), Say It Isn’t So (Heather Graham) and Gun Shy (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) as well as significant television placements including All My Children, Women’s Murder Club, Malcolm In The Middle, a coveted placement in George Clooney’s final episode of ER, the theme song for WB Networks dramedy Pepper Dennis and a cameo on-screen appearance with the show’s star, Rebecca Romjin.

Chris Trapper’s music can best be described as lyrically driven roots-pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra-ordinary characters. 

A respected songwriter of the highest caliber, Chris has written 7 songs with/for Canadian band GREAT BIG SEA, including their #1 single “Sea Of No Cares” from the certified-platinum Sea Of No Cares CD.  Great Big Sea covered Trapper’s song “Everything Shines” and their version served as the debut single off their certified-gold Road Rage CD album. Chris’ songwriting collaborations with Great Big Sea earned him two prestigious SOCAN awards. Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Antigone Rising have performed other notable versions of Trapper’s songs.

Chris Trapper’s ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each solo CD in his deep Discography. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders. 

Trapper’s live show is a favorite among fans of alt–acoustic music. His on–stage persona is warm and inclusive, his organic understanding of classic pop melody infectious. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele. They depart the venue at the end of the evening with the sense of having been truly entertained.

“It’s an incredibly rare musician, particularly in the world of popular music, who is able to forge a career based on quiet dignity and steadfast integrity.” 

The Buffalo News

OPENER:
A Fragile Tomorrow has become one of the most respected band of brothers on the road, largely thanks to their venerable work ethic, stellar musicianship, and fans in high places. The four-piece powerpop band is comprised of identical brothers Sean and Dominic Kelly, their younger brother Brendan, and Shaun Rhoades. The band will release their fourth CD “Be Nice Be Careful,” in January.  The new disc was recorded with music legend Mitch Easter as producer and Ted Comerford as co-producer. Known for his work with bands like R.E.M. and Pavement, Easter brought his trademark jangle-pop sound to the band’s compositions.

In 1965 Andrew Loog Oldham, the Rolling Stones svengali, asked filmmaker Peter Whitehead (The Fall, Tonite Let’s All Make Love in London) to accompany them on a quick tour of Ireland. Whitehead was astonished. Not only by the incredible power of the Stones’ performances but especially by the raw energy of the crowds of young people that rushed them everywhere. This new version of this behind-the scenes diary of the early Stones has never been seen; Mick Gochanour and Robin Klein, the team that brought The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus to the screen, have painstakingly restored over 90,000 frames of optical screen prints and negative, going back to the original sound tapes and 3-track live recordings. Included are electrifying performances of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “The Last Time,” and “Time is on My Side.” Charlie Is My Darling is an invaluable document, the unseen story of the band becoming the legend.

In addition the feature, the film includes an introduction with Kurt Loder, a filmmaker interview with Dave Grohl and Andrew Loog Oldham, a bonus feature on the restoration of the film, and interviews with the band members.

Compass International Pictures, Trancas International Films, and Screenvision turn back the clock to October 1978 in the sleepy town of Haddonfield, Illinois for John Carpenter’s immortal classic, Halloween. On October 30th & 31st, the original genre-defining horror masterpiece graces the big screen once again. This nationwide release is the widest the film has seen since originally shocking audiences in ’78, and will be presented in a striking new HD transfer and 5.1 audio.

Michael Myers has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis. On October 30, 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, turning a night of tricks and treats into something much more sinister for three young women. Dr. Loomis is their only hope, but will be find his shadow-dwelling patient in time?

Screenvision’s presentation of Halloween will include an exclusive documentary short written and directed by Fangoria’s Justin Beahm, You Can’t Kill The Bogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween, focusing on the undeniable impact the film, and series, has had on culture and the genre.

Some of the many themes addressed in this year’s 2nd annual Arlington International Film Festival are the skill of ‘story-telling’ as is taught and practiced in Marrakech, the historical journey of Indian sarodist, Maestro Ali Akbar Khan and his legendary music, an African-American’s journey from the segregated south to national recognition told through his carving, tooling and dyeing of pictures on leather, non-violence practiced by a little-known movement in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, an intimate spiritual interaction among a trio of human beings during the Holocaust… caught up in a moment of history told through performances of lieders by Schubert, Schumann and Wolf, autism and the struggle of a family to survive it’s demands, and what about the reality of reaching middle age in 2012 and not having found a partner; can we embrace this and celebrate life as it is and still feel whole?  In addition to film screenings there will be Q & A’s with filmmakers/main characters, panel discussions, special live performances and more.

The Arlington International Film Festival is much more than just a film festival; it is a celebration of cultures as well as being a platform for recognizing the common global human experience.  Please come and share these experiences with us.

Presented by Sound Cinema

MUSIC FROM THE BIG HOUSE is an extraordinary story about finding hope, joy and music behind bars. Rita Chiarelli, Canada’s Queen of the Blues, takes a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the Blues: Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary, a.k.a Angola Prison – formerly the bloodiest prison in America.  Rita’s trip turns into an historic jailhouse performance, playing with – rather than for – inmates serving life sentences. Their shared bond of music, and Chiarelli’s ebullient personality, draw striking revelations from the inmates. Rather than sensational stories of convicts, we witness remarkable voices of hope as their love of music radiates humanity and redemption on their quest for forgiveness. Official Film Web Site:

Borrowing from the Western European agricultural wheel of the year, each monologue represents a time in the growing/harvest season; likewise, each season is a metaphor for each woman’s life event.

Reserved Seating, $25

In 1995, Zoso was formed to create the most mesmerizing and accurate portrayal of “the biggest band of the 1970’s” - Led Zeppelin (Rolling Stone Magazine). Each member was selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones. Zoso almost immediately developed an outstanding regional reputation and were awarded “Best Tribute Act in California” by Rock City News.

In 1999, Zoso began touring nationally, playing a remarkable 2,400 live performances, honing their show to become one of the most musically and visually rewarding acts in North America. Their passion, musical ability, showmanship and precise attention to detail earned them critical acclaim, name recognition and a large loyal following. The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as being “head and shoulders above all other Zeppelin tributes,” and the Chicago Sun-Times declared Zoso to be “the closest to the original of any tribute.”

Every year since its conception, Zoso continues to play 150 - 180 high profile concerts at performance arts centers, civic centers, theaters, festivals, and universities. Since 2004, the band has been working on numerous shows with Live Nation including a rotation of 9 House of Blues venues. The four permanent members’ mastery of authentic vintage instruments coupled with spot-on vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards, their compelling stage persona and distinct Led Zeppelin sound, with astounding visual imagery recreates the music, magic, and mystery of a Zeppelin concert. Each of the timeless hit songs performed in their sets are known and loved by generations of fans.

Zoso is comprised of Matt Jernigan (Robert Plant), John McDaniel (Jimmy Page), Adam Sandling (John Paul Jones), and Greg Thompson (John Bonham),

If you missed Led Zeppelin live in the 70’s or are looking for a great chance to relive the “Hammer of the Gods” phenomenon, you must experience what the St. Petersburg Times calls “the most exacting of the Zeppelin tribute bands in existence.”

The Rise And Fall Of The Clash features previously unseen footage of the band at work and at play, interviews with the individual band members and with those who knew them well, and traces the downward trajectory of a band who were at one point “The Only Band That Matters”. This is not a film that pulls any punches, but neither does it overlook the life-changing effect that The Clash brought to so many. Over 90 minutes it paints the fascinating inside story of rival, treachery and betrayal, and the internal band dynamics and managerial interferance that ultimately led The Clash to self-destruct.

For years, filmmakers have been trying to capture the work of one of America’s foremost horror masters: H.P. Lovecraft.  The folks at the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society have finally got it right, and Matson Films is pleased to release an exciting, fun and scary double-bill (150 minutes total) of new films. 

Aint it Cool News wrote, “I loved every moment… the first Lovecraftian film done completely right.”  Film Threat says, “(Director) Branney nails the spirit of Lovecraft.”  And the Chicago Examiner wrote, “reviews cannot do it justice - it must be seen to be believed.”

THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS (103 min), Lovecraft’s classic tale of alien horror bursts onto the screen in the style of the classic horror films of
the 1930s. Professor Albert Wilmarth investigates legends of strange creatures in the remote hills of Vermont. His inquiry reveals a terrifying glimpse of the truth that lurks behind the legends. A thrilling adventure of supernatural horror.

THE CALL OF CTHULHU (47 min), a silent movie shot in Mythoscope, is HP Lovecraft’s most famous story. It is the only story to feature the
celebrated monster Cthulhu and follows an adventurous young man’s crusade to unravel the Cult of Cthulhu. The story embodies HPL’s nihilistic world view, his cosmic perspective, and his sense that mankind is doomed by its own insignificance.
