The Glass Menagerie

"The Glass Menagerie” centers on the Wingfields, a disconnected family living in illusions. Amanda basks in her days as a young Southern belle through countless retellings of all her gentlemen callers. Her son, Tom, spends his time writing poetry and longs for the adventure he finds in movies. And Tom’s sister, Laura, spends her days caring for her collection of glass animals. But the arrival of gentleman caller awakens possibilities for Laura, as well as Tom and Amanda. Will illusions be shattered or crystallized? For better or for worse?

What others had to say!!

 

“Eye opening experience! It was great to get my ideas out on paper. I feel confident that my goals will come to fruition.” – R. Douglas

 “This was an awesome experience!! I enjoyed learning how to get my vision out of my head and into a tangible, visual board – that I created! I noticed it helped me focus and expand on my goals.” – S. Franklin

 “I'm glad I didn't have time to make my comments after the class. It gave me the opportunity to really absorb & recognize God's presence in the workshop and anointing after I got back to work & looked at my board. I just sat teary eyed staring at it! The process was so cleansing. I didn't anticipate the emotional release or the anointing to be present after doing my board! I was very blessed by the experience & I look forward to the next one!!!! Thank you bunches!” – D. Drake

Halloween is the type of holiday where you can dress up like a complete clown and everyone will adore you. But on Friday October 31 at Stadium Bar, you’ll have to choose either Heaven or Hell.

This is Boston’s official Heaven and Hell Halloween event, so make sure to bring out your true side so we can decide where you’ll fall – Heaven or Hell!

Annual Ministry Renewal Day

Presenters: Thomas H. Groome, STM professor of theology and religious education, chair, Department of Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry, and Rev. Michael Himes, professor of theology, Boston College Department of Theology

The Second Vatican Council was a great catalyst of renewal and reform, launched upon the Church and world by the Holy Spirit. Pope John XXIII called for a program of aggiornamento, a process of both returning to the sources of faith and then developing it to be more credible and attractive in the modern world. This program would require significant "changes" for Catholic Christians that did not come easily, and yet have brought great new life to our faith. Now what we've made a start, the changes must continue; we are far from being the community of Jesus's disciples that we should be. However, if we keep on changing-in the right direction-we will come to at least approximate the biblical sentiment that we be perfect as our God is perfect. This event will review the reasons for further change in the Church, and then how to go about making them. Early registration recommended.

The James Hunter Six

The James Hunter Six


Minute By Minute

With his last two albums, 2006’s Grammy-nominated People Gonna Talk and 2008’s The Hard Way, James Hunter delivered a classic yet perpetually modern brand of rhythm and blues that captivated listeners across generations and earned him two Billboard Blues #1's, tours with Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Etta James, and Willie Nelson, performances on Leno, Letterman, and Conan, and critical raves everywhere from the NY Times to USA Today.

Minute By Minute, due out February 26, 2013 on GO Records/Fantasy, marks a pivotal movement in this unique artist’s career—not only because it arguably contains his best writing, singing, and playing to date, but because it signals James’ return to the studio following the loss of his wife Jacqueline, who died of cancer in October 2011.

It’s also the first album credited to The James Hunter Six. James made this change in recognition of the collective talent and unstinting loyalty shown by his longtime cohorts Lee Badau (baritone saxophone), Damian Hand (tenor saxophone), Kyle Koehler (organ), Jonathan Lee (drums), and Jason Wilson (double bass). The Six have hung together through multiple albums and more than two decades of interna­tional touring, from small clubs to the Hollywood Bowl – developing a cohesion and intuitive knack for creating precisely the right arrangement and feel for James' original songs.

And Minute By Minute is the first James Hunter album to be recorded in the US, and the first to be pro­duced by Gabriel Roth, aka Bosco Mann Productions. Roth is co-founder of Daptone Records, America’s premier soul revival imprint. He earned a Grammy for his expert engineering on Amy Winehouse’s best–selling album Back to Black, and has also produced and/or engineered recordings by Lee Fields, Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones & the Dap–Kings, the Budos Band, and Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens, among others.

“It really does have a leaner and punchier sound than our previous albums,” Hunter says of Roth’s deft, unobtrusive touch on Minute by Minute, punctuating his remarks with characteristic raspy laughter. “I take the credit it for that, because I followed Gabe’s suggestions. I thought that was very intelligent of me!

“Without pouring any fancy ketchup on it, Gabe got this sound that we always thought we should have had.”

The Story So Far

James Hunter was born October 2, 1962 into a working–class family in Colchester, Essex. “It wasn’t quite like growing up with the blues in Alabama, but in my part of England, anywhere south of Watford would be considered Alabama,” he notes. “In the States, you’ve got the Mason– Dixon Line and in England, we’ve got the Watford Gap.”
Among James’ earliest musical influences was a collection of 78 r.p.m. records of Fifties rock ‘n’ roll and rhythm & blues given to him by his grandmother; and his older brother Perry Hunstman (James' real surname), “the one responsible for me learning how to play a G chord.” (Perry later became an accomplished acoustic guitarist; he performs regularly on the Midlands folk club circuit, playing in a traditional fingerpicking style.)

James’ passion for the music of the Fifties and Sixties never waned as he toiled for seven years as a signal locking fitter in Colchester, tending to a Victorian–era safety feature found in signal boxes.

In the early Nineties, Van Morrison caught James’ act at a gig in Wales and subsequently hired him as a backup singer for several years of touring and recording. James appeared on Morrison’s live album, A Night in San Francisco (1994), and on the studio set, Days Like This (1995). About Hunter, Morrison said, "He's one of the best voices and best kept secrets in British R&B and soul."

But by 2003, James Hunter was 41 years old and without a record deal or a gig. His dreams of a career in music were fading. “I went through a particularly skint time,” he later told an interviewer. “I was forced to do laboring jobs through an agency. It was terrible. I discovered that busking was better. The hours were more sociable; the pay was better, and the crack addicts were far better company!”

Through a chance encounter with an American vacationing in London, busking later led to management and a record deal, and in 2006, GO Records/Rounder released People Gonna Talk, the first James Hunter album ever issued in the US. With its affectionate echoes of Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson, the disc became an airplay staple on some of the nation’s most influential radio stations. The Los Angeles Times praised James Hunter’s “extraordi­nary soul voice”; Rolling Stone called his album “a treat not to miss.” By the year’s end, People Gonna Talk was among the Top Ten “Best Albums of 2006” as cited by Mojo, USA Today and the WFUV listeners’ poll, to name a few. It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Tradi­tional Blues Album and James himself was nominated as Best New/Emerging Artist in the annual Americana Music Awards.

Hunter’s next album, The Hard Way (GO Records/Hear Music) earned even better accolades, with Rolling Stone calling it “unbelievably awesome” and the New York Times praising Hunter’s “tight, slithery groove” and “sweet growl.” The album featured a guest appearance by avowed Hunter fan Allen Toussaint, and like its predecessor reached #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart. Hunter toured extensively behind it, both as a headliner and supporting the likes of Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Willie Nelson, Van Morrison, Chris Isaak, Boz Scaggs and others.
