MY NATIVE AIR: CHARLES EVANS HUGHES & THE ADIRONDACKS
ON DEMAND 1/15-2/15
This 49-minute documentary tells the story of the life and career of Glens Falls native Charles Evans Hughes, his role in Adirondack forest land conservation and preservation of the springs at Saratoga Springs, and his connections with cultural attractions in the district such as The Hyde Collection art museum and Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls, Fort Ticonderoga, Silver Bay Association in Hague, scenic Lake George, and Lady Tree Lodge at Upper Saranac Lake.
The documentary, two years in the making, is the creative effort of filmmaker Caitlin Stedman, sound engineer Tom Appler, and history writer and former long-time Post-Star reporter Maury Thompson.
You buy a ticket. You’re delivered a box. Inside the box, you find a variety of objects, along with an invitation… beckoning you to solve a mysterious puzzle. You accept the invitation, and are connected online to a detective who needs the clues in your box to start connecting the pieces… but… the pieces to what? As the plot unfolds into a night of twists and turns – along with virtual live performances that plunge you deeper into a world of noir and intrigue – you realize this is about much more than random items in a box. You begin to wonder: in this virtual game of cat and mouse… who’s chasing who? And why is one of your objects a clock that’s slowly counting down? And… perhaps most importantly of all… what happens when it hits zero?
It’s time for Andy and Laura’s Painting for Two – the BEST paint-by-numbers instructional show on public access WBPP! By signing up for this week’s show, you’ve received your canvas and paints in the mail, and you’ll be following along with Andy and Laura to make it a masterpiece in a night where wine and canvas meets live theatre. One small change: Laura isn’t here. She’s gone. But… Andy’s here, live… from the living room they once shared… and he’s ready to make this blank canvas into a stunning piece of art with YOU! Also, due to budget cuts, we may need him to host a few more shows throughout the evening… also the future of the station may be at stake. But… it’ll be fine, right? Yeah… yeah it’ll be… fine…
