JDTLab: MY LESSONS FROM DOGS by Patrick Christiano
JDTLab: MY LESSONS FROM DOGS by Patrick Christiano
Guild Hall
158 Main Street
East Hampton
631-324-0806

7:30pm
John Drew Theater Lab (JDTLab) is a workshop devoted to fostering East End performing artists continues its fall season! MY LESSONS FROM DOGS by Patrick Christiano (told by the FIRST PLACE WINNER of the ARF “Smooch With Your Pooch” Contest last summer at the Mulford Farm) is an inspirational tale about the writer’s 22 years with Norfolk Terriers, an ironic journey to rediscovering his childlike energy, which drew him back to the theater and away from selling million dollar homes in the Hamptons to playing on stages in New York City and beyond. Conceived from improvisations with people he meets while walking his dogs on the streets of the West Village, the witty autobiographical story chronicles the beginning of his theater writing, a return to acting in NYC, a gig as a Hampton realtor on MTV, and ultimately portraying Truman Capote in TRU. Patrick weaves a funny, true and inspiring tale about following your bliss and confronting death.

Live in the Lobby Opening Night - Chris J. Connolly and Bryan Gallo with Butchers Blind
Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts Lobby
71 E. Main St.
Patchogue
631-207-1313

10/23/2014 7:30 PM
Tickets: $10 and include a beverage at the bar.  SEATING IS LIMITED, and “First Come.” Doors open at 7 PM.  Tickets can be purchased the day of the performance at the box office, or call 631-207-1313 to reserve tickets.

We open our Tenth season for Live in the Lobby with two great singer-songwriters that are each releasing their debut albums and celebrating with us!  A double Album release celebration with Chris J. Connolly and Bryan Gallo with Butchers Blind.

Bryan Gallo is a Long Island based singer-songwriter and former front man of the band Attic Space. His songs are inspired by late nights in bars, the backseats of cars, and the pressures and consequences of living life romantically. Intrigued by both the sounds of alternative country-rock and wistful pop music he embarked on a solo career and began to pen songs that would be deeply personal but still readily accessible. Steeped in reflective heartache, the lexicon of Gallo’s lyrics stands as a testament to his raw talent as a musician while weaving a flush and relatable narrative. Whether it be an intimate gig at a tavern or cafe or on a large stage setting under the lights, Bryan’s words and melodies stick with audiences long after the show is over. He’ll be backed by Pete Mancini, Paul Cianciaruso, Brian Reilly, and Christopher Smith who are also known as Butchers Blind, a well established Long Island Band that recently released their second album on Paradiddle Records and are hard at work on their third.

Weaving between two continents, Chris J. Connolly’s music has been his support system and a reflection of his journeys. Originally from Staffordshire, England - Chris spent his early years performing in hometown venues before eventually crossing the Atlantic to reside in his current home on Long Island. Inspired by both early American roots music and modern alt-rock, Chris grew to craft his own unique style of writing and phrasing that moves between sublime, evolving and hook based melodies.

Chris’s debut album, due out this fall on Diversion Records, is anchored around his raw acoustic guitar and vocal arrangements while also exploring new-found sonic territory.  With minimalistic additions of percussion, bass, and electric guitar, the album is a diverse and spacious journey rooted in natural performances and craftsmanship that maintains the intimacy and presence of his earlier work.  The first single is due in September, with the full album following in late 2014.

Entering its tenth season, Live in the Lobby has cemented its reputation for supporting, nurturing and encouraging original music from Long Island, having presented over 100 shows in the intimate setting of the PTPA Lobby and given birth to several other performance series such as The New Musicals Project and Laughter in the Lobby.  The hard working volunteers that present Live in the Lobby are proud of our “venue within a venue” and look forward to welcoming you!

For kids of all ages! $10.00 admission for children and adults alike, including a non-alcoholic beverage at the bar. Tickets day of show or call 207-1313 to reserve. Seating is limited; doors open 1/2 hour prior to performance.

Kids of all ages, join us for this interactive concert revival of Boo! A Monster Musical, a special presentation of The New Musicals Project at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts.

With a script by Norhport native Joe Pospisil and songs by Patchogue’s Howard Beckerman, the musical Boo! was commissioned by the Central Park Conservancy and performed as “Halloween at Belvedere” outdoors at Belvedere Castle for four Halloweens in Central Park. This Patchogue revival of the show is a “Live in the Lobby” event and includes time for the children to meet and speak with the cast of comic actors after each performance. Come in costume if you wish!

Our story begins when eleven-year-old Harold Owen Ween sets out on a mission to stop the “World Holiday Commission” from cancelling the Halloween holiday—they say because of low candy and costume sales. During his travels, Hal meets a trio of recently unemployed and good-natured monsters whose very livelihood depends on the survival of Halloween. It isn’t long before they join Hal and the audience on their quest to save the holiday from extinction.

Another production of “The New Musicals Project,” a cooperative venture between The Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts and Worldwide Voices, both Not-For-Profit 501(c)(3) organizations.

Speaker: Mount Holyoke College President Lynn Pasquerella, Ph.D.

Free Public Lecture
Join us for a discussion on how the biology and concept of death is handled in the American health care system.
A philosopher and ethicist who has combined teaching and scholarship with civic engagement, Mount Holyoke President Lynn Pasquerella has written extensively on medical ethics, theoretical and applied ethics, metaphysics, public policy, and the philosophy of law.  A celebrated teacher, she has found time to co-teach a class in almost every semester of her presidency, with faculty in departments as disparate as Sociology, Biology, and Africana Studies. At the core of her career and her priorities is an abiding commitment to liberal education as a force for good, both for the individual and for civic society.  Manifestations of that commitment include her work as senator and member of the executive committee of Phi Beta Kappa, and her role as host of The Academic Minute, a WAMC Northeast Public Radio program, and “Difficult Dialogues: Voices from the Valley,” a public access television show.

2:30PM -5:30PM
Exchange ideas in this monthly discussion group based on the socratic practice of questioning. Based on the work of Christopher Phillips, author and co-founder of The Society for Philosophical Inquiry, Socrates Café groups are gatherings that meet all over the world in which people from different backgrounds get together and exchange thoughtful ideas and experiences while embracing the central theme of Socratizing—the idea that we learn more when we question, particularly when we do so with others. Prior to the first meeting a list of potential questions will be sent to each participant. At the first meeting, participants will select the question to be examined. From then on, participants will suggest and select questions at the end of each meeting for future meetings. To learn more about Socrates Café go to http://www.philosopher.org/ Socrates_Cafe.html. Free registration begins 10/1.
