Terms of Endearment 9/12 - 10/05
Bennett Hall, 62 Centre Street



     Challenges in life and love test the resilience of a mother-daughter relationship in Dan Gordon's adaptation of Terms of Endearment, based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winner Larry McMurtry and James L. Brooks's screenplay of the Oscar-winning film. Described as a heartfelt comedy drama, Terms of Endearment explores the tumultuous relationship between Aurora, a devoted but opinionated mother, and her often pregnant and always headstrong daughter, Emma.
     As Aurora struggles to impose order on her wayward daughter’s chaotic life, she finds her own taking an unexpectedly thrilling turn when she falls deeply in love for the first time in her life – with retired astronaut Garrett Breedlove. But Garrett it seems, is as big a cad as her daughter’s husband, and only when tragedy strikes the family is he revealed as a man with a heart of gold. This funny and touching story captures the delicate, sometimes fractured bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, and lovers, both old and new.

Kill the Whale 9/16 - 9/16
Bennett Hall, 62 Centre Street

Kill the Whale: A Musical Odyssey

Kill The Whale is a Musical and Album by singer and composer Daniel Emond, that re-imagines Moby-Dick as a series of songs baring the souls of each character on board Captain Ahab’s vessel.
The score, soaked in rock and hip hop, folk and roots, rhythm and blues, psychedelia and soul, like the culturally inclusive cast of actor-musicians, is an eclectic reflection of America’s diversity.
The piece seeks to deconstruct biases, using gender-bending motifs to place non-males in the roles of authority, and casting people from opposite ends of the world as soul mates.

Daniel Emond is an actor, a singer and a musician living in New York City. Daniel plays regularly in NYC with his bands Blue Eyed Bettys and Lion & Spaniel, in addition to his own work.
His work has been seen at Knitting Factory, Rockwood Music Hall, Mercury Lounge, PIANOS, The Slipper Room, Bowery Electric, Arlene's Grocery, Pete's Candy Store and The Living Room.

This performance will have an introduction from Daniel's friend and fellow Melvillean, acclaimed author Nathaniel Philbrick (In the Heart of the Sea, Why Read Moby-Dick).


When: September 16th at 7:00pm

Where: Bennett Hall, 62 Centre Street 

This performance will take place on stage in the round. Call our box office for more information 508-228-4305.
