‘Hadestown’ Brings New Orleans Style To Orpheus & Eurydice Tale – Review

By sheer happenstance — because sometimes in New York it can seem that everything really is happening somewhere nearby — I saw a revival of Tennessee Williams’ lyrically overwrought drama Orpheus Descending in a tenderly lucid, gripping production staged by Austin Pendleton in a Christopher Street church, poor-theater style with not much more than a few sticks of furniture. The language and a fine company did the rest. That was just a few days before Hadestown, which…

Hey folks, Harry here reporting with a shit-eating grin that Jason Blumhouse managed to convince John Carpenter to Godfather a new outing of HALLOWEEN as Producer and Composer.   What does this mean?   Here’s something Carpenter says in the press release:

“HALLOWEEN needs to return to its traditions,” Carpenter said. “I feel like the movies have gotten away from that… Michael is not just a human being; he’s a force of nature, like the wind. That’s what makes him so scary.”

At the Press Event in L.A. John mentioned that he had to miss a basketball game to attend – and some may feel that is a joke, but if you know John Carpenter…  for him to miss a Playoff Game…   That’s a pretty big deal for him, he LOVES the game.   LOVES LOVES LOVES.   So, I take that little nugget from the event to be a very good sign.   I love John, he was one of my first heroes to welcome me into their home a few times and as a movie poster & lobby card enthusiast, we chatted a lot about posters we were always hunting for, for the longest time his search for a set of lobby cards to RIO BRAVO was driving him nuts.   Then we told collector loss tales like when he lost a house in a fire that devastated his collection.  Similarly, a busted pipe destoryed a ton of our stuff when I was in High School.
