Those familiar with Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play may know that it is Daisy Werthan’s crash of her Packard (not Rolls) that occasions her son, Boolie, to hire a driver for her to navigate the Atlanta neighborhood in which she makes her home. He interviews and hires an out of work, soft-spoken Black man to present to his genteel but opinionated Southern Jewish mother: and the two are a study in contrasts. Thus begins 25-year relationship that unfolds on stage as the two tentatively at first, then tenaciously, build a friendship that endures the many differences of their initial meeting.

The newly renovated Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem, NH, continues its 2018 Anniversary Film Series with the Beatle’s Yellow Submarine Friday, August 10 at 7:30 PM. At 50 years old this joyful, phantasmagoric blend of colorful animation and the music of the Beatles is still delightful family fare. This animated meandering journey filled with puns and dry British humor, where psychedelic music videos take precedent over any linear story. The swirling animation is a mixture of pop-culture images and modern artistic styles brought loosely together with a naïve antiwar message and some clever political commentary. The Blue Meanies take over Pepperland, draining it of all its color and music, firing anti-music missiles, bonking people with green apples, and turning the inhabitants to stone by way of the pointed finger of a giant white glove. As the only survivor, the Lord Admiral escapes in the yellow submarine and goes to London to enlist the help of the Beatles.
