August: Osage County
When the husband of a foul-mouthed, pill-popping matriarch goes missing, the whole family convenes on their Oklahoma homestead. Rather than bringing with them the warmth of loved ones, the three Weston daughters unleash a maelstrom of disturbing secrets, long-buried rivalries, and anger that threatens to move from a simmer to a rolling boil—and they’re barely a match for their mother. Tracy Letts’s biting and darkly funny study of familial dysfunction won a host of awards, including the 2008 Pulitzer Prize, a Tony Award for Best Play, and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. “I’d bet the farm,” wrote Charles Isherwood for the New York Times, “that no family has ever been as unhappy in as many ways—and to such sensationally entertaining effect—as the Westons . . . .”
Not many theaters have been featured in Oscar-winning films. The Everett Theatre is an exception. The space took center stage during a pivotal scene in 1989's Dead Poets Society, and its vintage facade, plush red curtains, and ornate arches helped it fit right in with the film's '50s setting.
But despite its brush with Oscar gold, it's the Everett's function as a community center that has made it a source of local pride since it first opened in 1863. While weathering fires, remodels, and closures, the venue made entertainment its mission, from vaudeville shows and movies to musicals and plays. More than a century later, the renovated Everett Theatre continues to produce entertainment for Middletown and its surrounding area.
