On Our Screen and Stage – Week of December 10, 2019

This week at Hopewell Theater, BECOMING ASTRID pays tribute to a Pippi Longstocking’s creator, Astrid Lindgrin, with a biopic that proves the story behind the scenes is just as timelessly engaging. Opens Friday and runs through Thursday, December 20. Saturday at noon, we welcome back to HT Lucy Kalantari and the Jazz Cats for a Family Fun Concert!  Lucy and the Jazz Cats present ‘It’s the Holidays’ a seasonal concert featuring music from their holiday EP with original songs commemorating Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year’s celebrating community, unity and togetherness. Thursday is your last chance to catch SWIMMING WITH MEN – a romantic comedy about a man suffering from a mid-life crisis finds new meaning in his life after joining an all-male, middle-aged, amateur synchronized swimming team – and MARIA BY CALLAS featuring never-before-seen footage and performances offering insight into the life and career of renowned opera singer Maria Callas. More info on these and all of our great upcoming holiday programs here.
