…well, six, if you count Bob Cilman’s hats. We do. Plus he and Diane Porcella bring us some pretty amazing entertainment, and this year’s Four Sundays in February is no exception. Expect amazing acappella, classic films scored by a live orchestra, a film festival by and for kids, flaming yoyos and smokin’ ukeleles! Plus, the 20th birthday of The Really Big Show, featuring Tom Mahnken as Ed Sullivan. It’s an event so packed with entertainment, we actually need to give it another show to talk about, because we ran out of time.

New Century Theatre is celebrating its 20th anniversary by revisiting favorite productions from their past seasons. Opening this week is The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), which sold out the Academy of Music back in February as part of this year’s Four Sundays in February. If you missed it then, or want to see how it’s evolved in the intervening months, don’t miss this production. We sit down with actors Sam Rush and Phil Kilbourne, plus director Tom McCabe, to find out just how you can cram so much theater into two hours.

Planning on catching a movie this weekend? We sit down with our pal and Hollywood correspondent Luke Bittel to discuss summer blockbusters: not just which ones are coming up, but the process behind making them, why so many movies suck these days, and why the industry is in trouble. We also talk about the Hollywood/Northampton connection, and its most recent result (this podcast was recorded BEFORE Mel’s most recent meltdowns, otherwise I’m sure we would have had a lot more to say about that).

Warning: this podcast contains spoilers. Rated R for language.

He’ll be speaking this Thursday at the Academy of Music about the intersection of energy, the economy, and the environment; and how community is key.
