Along with the three nutty Squirrelles, these “bestus” friends might get invited to a swimmy fancy costume dancey pool party or decide to spend the day playing ping-pong in silly hats.  This lively and irresistibly charming musical look at friendship has become one of the best-selling and loved young readers’ series of the past decade.

“Over the top.” Nothing describes American musical theatre of the 1980s to the present better. Characterized by lavish spectacles and epic plots, musicals like THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, LES MISÉRABLES, MONTY’S PYTHOM’S SPAMALOT, and WICKED continue to captivate us with their “bigger is better” approach. On the flipside, American popular artists such as Rod Stewart, Joni Mitchell, Michael Buble, and even Lady Gaga (in partnership with the incomparable Tony Bennett) returned to the humble roots of the Great American Songbook for contemporary – yet classic – hits.

Aaron Parks Little Big, the new Ropeadope album from the acclaimed pianist, keyboardist and composer, is at once the culmination of his brilliant early career and the long-awaited follow-up to his Blue Note Records debut, Invisible Cinema. That 2008 release, with its gorgeously melodic writing and improvising and deft use of indie-rock, electronica and hip-hop elements, established Parks as one of the most gifted and original young voices in jazz. “This is the natural successor to that record,” says the New York-based artist, 34. “It’s taking the ideas of that project and doubling down on them—fully committing to that direction.”

The beloved indie classic Napoleon Dynamite hit theaters almost 15 years ago. Since then much has changed; but the characters, as enduring as they are endearing, stay in our hearts.

Appealing to the inner-teenager in each of us, the story, and more importantly the dialogue, makes Napoleon Dynamite one of the most quoted movies of our time. Napoleon Dynamite makes us laugh – and laugh hard – over and over again.

This unique evening includes a full screening of Napoleon Dynamite followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with fan-favorite cast members Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and John Gries (Uncle Rico). VIP tickets include premium seating and a meet and greet with Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez and Jon Gries.

“Over the top.” Nothing describes American musical theatre of the 1980s to the present better. Characterized by lavish spectacles and epic plots, musicals like THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, LES MISÉRABLES, MONTY’S PYTHOM’S SPAMALOT, and WICKED continue to captivate us with their “bigger is better” approach. On the flipside, American popular artists such as Rod Stewart, Joni Mitchell, Michael Buble, and even Lady Gaga (in partnership with the incomparable Tony Bennett) returned to the humble roots of the Great American Songbook for contemporary – yet classic – hits.

Aaron Parks Little Big, the new Ropeadope album from the acclaimed pianist, keyboardist and composer, is at once the culmination of his brilliant early career and the long-awaited follow-up to his Blue Note Records debut, Invisible Cinema. That 2008 release, with its gorgeously melodic writing and improvising and deft use of indie-rock, electronica and hip-hop elements, established Parks as one of the most gifted and original young voices in jazz. “This is the natural successor to that record,” says the New York-based artist, 34. “It’s taking the ideas of that project and doubling down on them—fully committing to that direction.”
