Mamma Mia! at Bass Concert Hall Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 14:11

By Katie Stotts

 

Mamma Mia, here we go again! The bright and boisterous musical is at the Bass Concert Hall for one week only.

This tale of 3 forgotten loves has been entertaining audiences since it opened in 1999 in England. The love story starts with Sophie, a young hopeful girl who just wants a dad to walk her down the aisle.

Unfortunately, her mother had some wild days in the 1970s, so she can only narrow it down to three possible dads. Confusion and entertaining love stories begin as the three bewildered "dads" get invited to Sophie's wedding –without her mother knowing.

Mamma Mia! is named after ABBA's hit title track, and of course ABBA's music reigns throughout every scene with hits such as Super Trouper, Dancing Queen, and The Winner Takes it All –the song that inspired the show's writer to see ABBA's potential for the stage.

This musical has a ton of heart and just enough spandex to make you miss the 70s. Mamma Mia is playing until January 25th, so get your tickets now!

Weekdays at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm and 8pm, Sunday at 1pm and 7pm through January 25th

AMIRA & SAM Special Offer for Military Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 21:01

For the theatrical opening weekend of Drafthouse Films' Amira & Sam all active duty and veteran military service members will be able to bring a date to see the film for free. Service members can present a valid Military ID at the box office to receive a free ticket with the purchase of a ticket to see Amira & Sam. The film opens in select theaters across the country and on demand on January 30. A list of participating theaters for the Amira & Sam "Military Date Night" offer can be found below. 

Amira & Sam, winner of a half dozen top prizes at festivals across the country, is a smart, sweet and refreshing take on the romantic comedy genre. The story of a war veteran falling in love with an immigrant is infused with authenticity thanks to the unique background of writer/director Sean Mullin. Sean is a graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point and Captain in the New York Army National Guard, where he was a first responder on September 11th. For almost a year, he spent his days working as the Officer in Charge of the soldiers down at Ground Zero, and his nights performing stand-up comedy.

 

"Most 'soldier-coming-home-from-war' films deal with a soldier battling PTSD, but I wanted to flip that well-worn premise on its head: what if the soldier who returns if fine, but it's his country that's lost its mind? America was built on the backs of immigrants and protected by the courage of veterans, yet both of these groups have grown increasingly marginalized in today's society. I decided that the best way for me to explore such complex issues in the context of an independent film was to create an intimate love story with universal implications," said Mullin. 

 

Here is a list of all theaters participating in the "Military Date Night" special offer for opening weekend. Offer for a free ticket to Amira & Sam with purchase is valid for each participating theater's opening weekend (Fri - Sun) with Military ID presented at the box office. In NY and LA there will be in-theater Q&As with talent from the film.

AMIRA & SAM Synopsis

Rousing, smart, and sweet, Amira & Sam is a confident feature debut from writer-director Sean Mullin, and follows Sam (Martin Starr, "Freaks & Geeks", "Silicon Valley"), an army veteran adapting back to civilian life after a lengthy tour overseas. Upon reuniting with his unit's former Iraqi translator in New York City, he meets Amira (newcomer Dina Shihabi), his war buddy's niece; suspicious of soldiers, she wants nothing to do with him. However, when Amira runs into immigration trouble, Sam offers to keep her safe at his apartment. After a rocky start, their unlikely friendship starts to blossom into something more. Meanwhile, Sam's cousin Charlie (Paul Wesley, Before I Disappear, "The Vampire Diaries") offers him a lucrative opportunity at his hedge fund, helping to secure wealthy veterans as new clients. However, all is not as it seems, and Amira and Sam soon find themselves faced with mounting obstacles in order to stay together.
