Harry Connickuh everyone! Every year, the week before Christmas, we celebrate the life and works of Sir Harry Connick, Jr. – this time around, returning guest Jane Dempsey joins us to talk about William Friedkin’s Bug, adapted from the Tracy Letts play! Here, Connickuh plays third fiddle to Ashley Judd and Michael Shannon as a pair of co-dependent strangers who shack up in an Oklahoma motel room to hide from the world, only to find themselves dealing with a strange bug infestation – that may or may not be real. Check it out along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
This week, Julia Rohed of Mercy Street Theatre Company joins us to squeak about the 2003 remake of Willard, starring the ever-creepy Crispin Glover as an eccentric mama’s boy who starts doling out his own brand of justice against those who wrong him – with the help of a few friendly rats. It’s a surprisingly eccentric, Raimi-esque dark comedy with a wicked sense of humor, and we take it all in with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
