Date Night Film: Moonstruck

Comedian Erin Donovan will start the show off with a 15 minute set.

When there’s a full moon over Brooklyn, anything can happen, and everything happens in the neighborhood where widowed bookkeeper Loretta Castorini lives. Loretta agrees to marry a man she does not love, Johnny Cammareri, simply because he knows how to propose properly. Before the wedding can take place, Cammareri must visit his dying mother in Sicily.

Ragamala Dance Company: “Sacred Earth”

Known for dancers of impeccable technique and incandescent beauty, Ragamala Dance Company demonstrates “how Indian forms can provide some of the most transcendent experiences that dance has to offer” (The New York Times). Performed to live music and set against largescale projections of exquisite Warli paintings, Sacred Earth explores the interconnectedness and fragile relationship between nature and man. Mother and daughter choreographers/dancers, Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy, create dance landscapes that dwell in opposition—secular and spiritual life, inner and outer worlds, human and natural concerns, rhythm and stillness—to find the transcendence that lies between.

Tickets $40 – $35

Student Deal $15
