National Theater Live presents “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead” @ Broadway Centre Cinemas

National Theater Live presents “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead” @ Broadway Centre Cinemas |  |  |

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London.

David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.

Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.

Pyron recently published “Lucky Strike,” a book about Nate Harlow’s desire to win a prize, get picked first, call a coin toss correctly — anything to have some luck. But when Nate survives a lightning strike at the mini-golf course, his luck begins to change. But is there room for his science-and-logic-loving best friend Genesis Beam in Nate’s lucky new world?

Teen Writers Group is free and open to the public — tickets are NOT required.

ARTLandish, Gustave Baumann: Artist and Artisan @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts |  |  |

In a time of mechanization, Gustave Baumann (German-American, 1881–1971) chose the traditional and labor-intensive woodcut process for his modern compositions. Martin Krause, the leading expert on Baumann, will discuss the life and technique of this indefatigable artist.

Krause is curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. He organized IMA’s 2015 exhibition Gustave Baumann, German Craftsman – American Artist and edited The Autobiography of Gustave Baumann. Copies of the book will be for sale in The Museum Store, and a book signing will follow the talk.

ARTLandish: Land Art, Landscape, and the Environment is sponsored by the S. J. and Jessie E. Quinney Foundation and presented in partnership with the University of Utah’s College of Fine Arts and J. Willard Marriott Library, and the Salt Lake City Public Library.
