  • Far From Heaven

    2/09/13
    1:00 pm - 2:45 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Far From Heaven. In a tribute to the "women's films" of the 1950s, writer/director Todd Haynes produces a visually tantalizing and emotionally involved look at the life of one '50s housewife in abnormal circumstances. When she finds out her husband (Dennis Quaid) is having a homosexual affair, Cathy Whitaker (Julianne Moore) realizes that, although she has the perfect veneer of a happy life, she wants more. She seeks solace in the company of a black gardener (Dennis Haysburt), and soon rumors about the two of them begin spreading like wildfire. Providing a personal look at the racial and sexual prejudices of the era, this modern reinterpretation of Douglas Sirk's classic film All That Heaven Allows stands out with tight writing and manicured visuals. Add in the acting talents of Viola Davis and Patricia Clarkson, and Far From Heaven becomes an irresistible, tenderly wrought tale of suppressed love and desire.

    Paramount Center
    Paramount Center Mainstage
    See artsemerson.org for ticket pricing information

     ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Servant of Two Masters. Identities are mistaken, engagements are broken and lovers are reunited in Carlo Goldoni's commedia dell'arte masterpiece. Mayhem erupts when the wily—and chronically hungry—servant Truffaldino (played by acclaimed actor Steven Epp) hatches a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once. The virtuosic physical comedy of The Servant of Two Masters is directed by Christopher Bayes, whose hilarious choreography is featured in the hit stage production of Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps.

  • Swimming to Cambodia

    2/09/13
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Swimming to Cambodia. Actor and raconteur Spalding Gray delivers his acclaimed monologue Swimming to Cambodia for the camera. Slipping in history and socio-political context of the political turmoil Cambodia was experiencing at the time, Gray recounts his experience as an extra on the Sam Waterston film The Killing Fields filmed on location. A modern master of language and story, Gray's riveting tale speaks to the power of storytelling and importance of using the arts—theatre in particular—to bring about social awareness.

  • The Bride of Frankenstein

    2/09/13
    9:00 pm - 10:15 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Bride of Frankenstein. This classic horror film directed James Whale returns to the Frankenstein story with cast members from the original movie, including the legendary actor Boris Karloff. Dr. Frankenstein and his monster are not, in fact, dead as was implied by the end of the first film. They're back, and this time the monster wants a companion. With the persuasion of Dr. Pretorius, Frankenstein is convinced to create a bride for his monster. The results are, of course, nearly disastrous. Featuring a haunting score and cutting edge technology for the time, The Bride of Frankenstein serves as a prime example of the classic horror film from eras passed.
