    Bright Family Screening Room
    Public: $10, Members & Seniors: $7.50, Students $5

    ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage presents Lemony Snicket: A Series of Unfortunate Events. Jude Law as Lemony Snicket narrates this black comedy enjoyed by all ages, based on the best-selling books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler). The happy childhood of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire swiftly comes to an end when their parents die in a fire, leaving them orphaned—and with a huge fortune, but only when the oldest child comes of age. Sent to live with their greedy and strange distant relative, the out-of-work-actor Count Olaf (Jim Carrey), the siblings soon realize that he wants their fortune for himself. With the help of their paranoid Aunt Josephine (Meryl Streep) and snake-adoring Uncle Monty (Billy Connolly), the Baudelaire children manage to avoid his murderous plans.

  • Hamlet

    10/13/12
    2:00 pm - 4:45 pm
    Paramount Center
    Paramount Center Mainstage
    See artsemerson.org for ticket pricing information

     ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Hamlet. From Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London, a handful of players perform this timeless classic. Hamlet explores political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection ("to be, or not to be…") and violent action, tragic depth and wild humor. Capturing the youthful and less jaded aspects of Hamlet's personality rarely seen in more traditional interpretations, in just two and a half hours, this production embraces the theatre of Shakespeare's day. Actors play multiple characters and live music, infusing the performance with a lively energy. Humorous and boisterous, the Globe Company packs an emotional wallop with their inherent theatricality.

  • The House of Sand and Fog

    10/13/12
    6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room
    Public: $10, Members & Seniors: $7.50, Students $5

    ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage presents The House of Sand and Fog. A quarrel over real estate escalates into unexpected tragic consequences. Based on the novel of the same name by Andre Dubus III, this quiet psychological drama slowly gets under your skin; when recovering addict Kathy (played by Jennifer Connolly) is mistakenly evicted from her house, she finds herself driven to extremes to reclaim her property despite the fact that it has been auctioned off to an Iranian family. Ben Kinsgley plays Colonel Massoud Behrani, a former military officer in Iran, who desperately tries to maintain the appearance of financial success for his family and refuses to negotiate with Kathy. The film deftly explores the motivations of each character without casting any of them as the villain. Both Connolly and Kingsley are deeply moving, but the standout performance is Shohreh Aghdashloo who plays Nedereh, Behrani's wife, a sheltered, gracious woman who reaches out to Kathy only to pay the ultimate price.
