But their friendship angers a witch, who in retaliation turns the pretty Sophie into a decrepit old woman. With help of the fire demon Calcifer and Howl's other magical companions, Sophie sets off to find a way to reverse the witch's spell and return to her former self—visiting other worlds and dimensions along the way. Christian Bale, Emily Mortimer, Jean Simmons, Lauren Bacall and Billy Crystal comprise the English-speaking voiceover cast.

    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.

    In this adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by John Steinbeck, the Joad family has lost everything: their home, livelihood, dignity and nearly all hope for a better future.

Expecting the land of milk and honey, the Joads face further disillusionment, exploitation, and a lack of resources at the hands of big business and corrupt authorities.

The ordinary Evey (Natalie Portman) finds herself thrown into the fight against the totalitarian state when she becomes the unlikely ally of freedom fighter V (Hugo Weaving) after he rescues her from a run-in with the secret police.

  • Ghost World

    10/20/12
    9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room
    Public: $10, Members/Seniors: $7.50, Students: $5

    ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage presents Ghost World. In one of the smartest adaptations of a comic book ever brought to screen, best friends Enid (Thora Birch) and Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson) search for what to do with themselves the summer after high school graduation. As Enid and Rebecca search for their grown-up identities, they begin to drift apart and into other, more complicated relationships. Directed by Terry Zwigoff with a screenplay by Daniel Clowes based on his comic book of the same name, the film reveals the agonies of adolescent uncertainty and the changing nature of friendship without ever patronizing its young subjects.
