Proctors 2015-2016 season

carey elwes 2015

You'd like another chance to see Cary Elwes talk about making The Princess Bride? As you wish.

Proctors announced a bunch of new shows Monday for the next year -- some 60 in all. (We had to admit we didn't count.) And tickets are now on sale for them.

Here are a few that caught our eye on the first scan through the schedule...

Quoted blurbage via Proctors.

October 3: The Princess Bride: An Inconceivable Evening with Cary Elwes
"In this highly-anticipated event, fans of The Princess Bride will join the heroic Westley (actor Cary Elwes) in a behind-the-scenes look at life on and off the set of the classic film. After a screening of the iconic film, Elwes will engage in a moderated discussion on classic scenes, revealing never before shared secrets and tales of inconceivable antics!" (A similar event in Saratoga Springs last fall sold out.)

November 6: Solid Soul featuring Mavis Staples and Joan Osborne
"Grammy Award-winning legend Mavis Staples teams up with multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne on the highly anticipated national tour, 'Solid Soul.'"

January 29-31: PostSecret: The Show
"With original music, recorded voices, projected images, and video, PostSecret: The Show becomes an immersive experience as three actors guide the audience through a crowd-sourced narrative of the stories behind some of the most sexual, sad, funny and controversial - many of which have never been seen before." (Of course, this is based on the famous web project.)

February 11: Soledad O'Brien Presents Black in America
"Black in America 2015 gathers academics and experts, students, and community members of all races and politics to discuss their personal stories of how policing impacts their lives. The award-winning journalist and philanthropist presents a detailed examination of the facts behind community policing, racial profiling, controversial crime reduction tactics, and arrest quotas. And, we see the shocking videos that show how a war between civil rights and crime reduction is unfurling on America's streets."

February 27: Scott Freiman - Deconstructing the Beatles
Freiman's presentations about The Beatles are always popular -- there are two scheduled for this date: Say The Word: Deconstructing Rubber Soul and A Trip Through Strawberry Fields

I frequently find myself along this trail on Sunday mornings, hungry, & very little is open. There's a lot of talk about special mowers & building bathrooms & that's nice, yes, let's do that, certainly. But *right now* people using this trail are hungry & want to buy food & drink (& use the bathroom, as a paying customer): if the businesses that are already there were OPEN it would go a long way to providing amenities & destinations. ...
