This summer, Eventide Theatre Company is presenting two very unique perspectives to bring our audiences along on a journey to discovery all of the varying emotions and experiences these men bring with them as part of its continuing Summer Series.
In “From Blubber Bay to Broadway: The Older I Get the Better I Was” Garry Mitchell, a seasoned veteran of Broadway (and Cape Cod) Theater, shares a lifetime of experience tripping the light fantastic. Garry shares heartwarming and heart pounding tales of his days in New York, embellishing the stories of how he got there and how he got here in episodic fashion. The consummate storyteller, Garry’s rich baritone spins yarns, drops a few names, and invites the audience to settle in for an evening that is part Garrison Keillor, part Gary Cooper, and all Garry Mitchell. Garry Mitchell will perform “From Blubber Bay to Broadway” August 9th and 10th
In “An Illiad”, Kevin Quill brings a very different tale encompassing the passage of time, not in decades, but in centuries. Kevin is easily recognizable to Cape audiences as well with his boyish good looks and easy charm. In this outing, his experience as a veteran performer in his own right shines through and his youthful exuberance is tempered by a gravity that reads well beyond his years. Quill plays the narrator of the Illiad, though it is never quite clear if he is the Homer of history, or a greater mor omnipresent narrator of life and perspective. Quill has presented “An Illiad” on Cape Cod before…the last time in 2013 to sold out houses and much critical acclaim. Kevin Quill will present “An Illiad” on August 23rd and 24th.
Both shows will be featured on the Stage at the Jacob Sears Library in Dennis. Performances start at 7:30pm. Tickets are on sale for $18 now online at www.eventidearts.org or at the door for $20.
