Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? (Documentary)

7:30 PM19:30

Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? (Documentary)

Uncover a little-known side to saxophonist Clarence Clemons

The world knew him as The Big Man. The Minister of Soul. The Secretary of the Brotherhood. Musician, singer, songwriter and a lifetime member of the E Street Band.

But there was also a deeply spiritual side to Clarence Clemons that took the saxophonist to China.

In 2005, after a long tour with Bruce and the E Street Band, Clarence wanted to go someplace he had never been, to the other side of the world: China. 

Clarence Clemons: Who Do I Think I Am? shows the profound effect of a trip to Northeast China. This search for his true self took him from rural China to the streets of San Francisco. The documentary shows us his soulful mission and how it changed him, while paying  tribute to The Big Man through recollections with his closest friends and family members.

The film features interviews with President Bill Clinton, Jake Clemons, Joe Walsh, Willie Nile, Nils Lofgren, Vini Lopez, Norman Seldin, Michael Narada Walden, Gayle Morrison, Danny Clinch, Don Reo and additional family and friends who knew him well.

The film’s producer, Joe Amodei, and Backstreets writer Shawn Poole will be in attendance at this screening!

Dine

Black & White Dinner guests bring a picnic dinner for you and your partner or group. That includes beverages, flatware and utensils. Set-up is from 6:00 to 7:00 PM, and dinner begins at 7:00. 

Homemade food or take-out from a local restaurant are welcome. Please note that alcohol beverages are not permitted.

After dinner, head into the theatre for a free screening of His Girl Friday (1940).



Frequently Asked Questions

We will provide tables, chairs and white linens. You will need to bring a picnic dinner for two (including flatware and glasses), non-alcoholic beverages, desserts, and any decorations you'd like for your spot at the communal table.

How should I dress?
Guests are asked to dress only in black and white clothing. Elegance and creativity are encouraged! Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed folks in attendance.

Can I buy a ticket for just one person?
You're welcome to attend with a partner, friend, or group. Upon arrival, each couple is seated at the next open pair of seats. Tickets are sold only in pairs because guests are seated across from each other at one long communal table.

Comedian Gilbert Gottfried (Two Shows)

The one and only Gilbert Gottfried will perform two shows at the Newtown Theatre on Saturday, November 2. Shows will start at 6:00 PM and 8:30 PM.

Doors open at 5:00 PM for the 6:00 PM show and at 7:45 PM for the 8:30 PM show.

Beer, wine and concessions will be sold from the time the doors open until the start of the performance.

About Gilbert Gottfried

At the young age of 15, Gilbert Gottfried began doing stand-up at open mike nights in New York City, after a few short years, became known around town as “the comedian’s comedian.” After spending several years mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC late night comedy show Saturday Night Live became aware of Gottfried and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn’t until a few years later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel. This led to several television appearances on “The Cosby Show” and “Late Night with David Letterman.”

Gottfried’s work in television soon led to roles in film. Most notable was his improvised scene as business manager Sidney Bernstein in the hit sequel “Beverly Hills Cop II,” for which the New York Daily News said, “Gilbert Gottfried steals the picture with a single scene.” Aside from his glowing reputation in comedy clubs, Gottfried began to gain a reputation as the king of quirky roles in both movies and television. He appeared in such movies as “Problem Child,” “Problem Child II,” “Look Who’s Talking II” and “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.” He was also the host of the very popular late night movie series “USA Up All Night.”

After his stellar performance as the wise cracking parrot, IAGO, in the Disney classic “Aladdin,” Gottfried became one of the most recognizable voiceover talents, lending his voice to several commercials, cartoons and movies, including the frustrated duck in the AFLAC Insurance commercials. Gottfried also is the voice of DIGIT in the long running PBS Series “Cyberchase.” His signature voice can also be heard on the Comedy Central series, “The Annoying Orange, the voice of the horse on “Family Guy,” Mr. Mxyzptlk in the new “Lego Batman 3 – Beyond Gotham” video game, and Abraham Lincoln in A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Gottfried has made numerous memorable appearances on Comedy Central Roasts and the Comedy Central series, “The Burn with Jeff Ross.” Gilbert has been a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late Show with Seth Meyers”, “@Midnight with Chris Hardwick” and numerous appearances on “The Howard Stern Show.” He also has had a recurring role on “Law and Order” SVU as TARU tech Leo Gerber.

As a famed comics comic, Gottfried puts aside political correctness for his live performance and fires an onslaught of jokes that know no boundaries.

Comedians Kevin Downey, Jr. and Larry XL

Catch stand-up comedians Kevin Downey, Jr. and Larry XL on stage at the Newtown Theatre for an unforgettable double-headliner show! Doors open at 7 PM and the show starts at 8 PM.

Beer, wine and concessions will be sold from the time the doors open until the start of the performance.

Comedian and columnist Kevin Downey, Jr. has been recently labeled "refreshingly bizarre" by fellow comedian Joe Mulligan. Kevin headlined small rooms all over the U.S. and enjoyed a cult following until his frequent and on-going bookings at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino's "Comedy Stop" in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, brought him to a new level of notoriety.

Larry XL has been a finalist in comedy competitions in his native Baltimore and neighboring cities like Washington, DC and Philadelphia. Soon after he started performing at area clubs, Larry XL recorded a concert CD with the DC Standup All-Stars, 2004's DC Standup vs. Earth and later his own live DVD, 2009’s Crowd Control. He’s opened for the likes of Bobby Slayton, John Witherspoon, Ralphie May, Jim Florentine, Don Jamieson, Roy Wood Jr., Finesse Mitchell, and Charlie Murphy.

About the Band

acoustic deadication 2.jpg

Acoustic DEADication was formed when drummer/percussionist Paul Downie invited long time musical friends Mike Borowski (piano) and Daniel Bower (drums) to put together a group to perform an evening of acoustic Dead tunes at the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, PA.

Dan, Mike and Paul were joined that evening by Anders Alfelt (bass) and Daniel Dolla (guitar), and Acoustic DEADication was born.

The band performs acoustic versions of Dead tunes and related projects.
