HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Malala Yousafzai, who was wounded when Taliban gunmen opened fire on her and her friends' school bus in Pakistan's Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old teenager, who had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls' education in her region of Swat Valley in Pakistan, was shot in the head, sparking international media outrage. An educational activist in Pakistan, Yousafzai has since emerged as a leading campaigner for the rights of children worldwide and in December 2014, became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

We are happy to book class trips from October 9th thru November any morning of the week for this very important and inspiring movie. Contact Max Morey by email to book a field trip for your class:

Invincible Czars - NosferatuInspired by numerous requests from fans over the years, Austin's Invincible Czars will debut their new score for the 1922 German silent film Nosferatu (F.W. Murnau) this fall in New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. The tour will be accompanied by the release of a CD EP featuring highlights from their soundtrack.

Nosferatu is one of the most revered films in the history of cinema. As the world's first vampire movie, it is regarded as the first important horror film--but it was almost erased from the history books when the estate of Bram Stoker sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed. Several survived, and this performance will feature the most completely restored version that exists.
Nosferatu marks the 7th effort for a band that’s increasingly becoming known for its well-crafted original silent film scores. Last year, The Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, known for hosting acclaimed silent film accompanists from around the nation, called the Czars' soundtrack for the 1929 Lillian Gish silent classic The Wind "as good as any we've seen." In March 2015, the band were artists-in-residence at Texas A&M University, where they gave three lecture-recitals on music for film and silent film that culminated in a live performance of their score for The Wind. They’ve also performed silent film scores at the Kimball Museum, Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, University of Houston, and several outdoor music and film events.

The Invincible Czars' Nosferatu score incorporates violin, glockenspiel, organ, flute, bass clarinet, vocals, music box, loops, electric guitar, bass, singing bowl, tambourine and other hand percussion--all of which is a sight to behold when performed live by only four players!

The band always incorporates music from the classical realm into their scores, and this time they've chosen Bela Bartok's Roumanian Folk Dances in a nod to the fictional Count Orlock's home turf. The highlight of their arrangements is a haunting version of Roumanian Dance IV featuring an otherworldly vocal performance by the band's wind mistress Leila Henley.

Nosferatu tells the story of Hutter and Ellen, a couple from the village Wisborg. Hutter travels to Transylvania to sell a piece of property in Wisborg to Count Orlok. Hutter stays in Orlok’s castle only to learn that the Count is a vampire. Orlok purchases a house next to Hutter’s, locks Hutter in the castle and travels to Wisborg. On the way, he manages to possess Hutter’s employer and Ellen and strike the village with an outbreak of the plague. Hutter rushes home to stop him before it’s too late.

Chef Adam Jones had it all - and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he'll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene. This remarkably funny and emotional story is about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.

"BURNT" starts October 30th at the Crescent Theater in Mobile, AL.


Caleb Synan at Crescent Theater in Mobile, AL

Caleb Synan is one of our favorites here at Comedy Whatever. He's been on a handful of our shows. You may remember he opened for Dave Stone a couple of times when Dave was here. Caleb was on the most recent season of Last Comic Standing. You may also recognize him from Just for Laughs Montreal, Bob and Tom Radio Show, and Cameron Esposito's Put Your Hands Together Podcast.

Check out Caleb Synan on Conan!

From his site-
"Caleb Synan’s act is a deceptively smart blend of Southern charm and razor sharp wit. His instant likability and absurd view of the world has led him to appearances on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, and The Bob and Tom Radio Show. He also won “Wittiest” in Franklin County High School’s 2009 Yearbook. And he’s a pretty nice guy."

It's the weird and wonderful as newly engaged couple Brad and Janet encounter a problem when they car halts in the rain. They both look for contact only to find themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite. A place to stay is offered, but will Brad and Janet want to remain there? Especially when a large group of Transylvanians dance to the 'Time Warp', Dr. Frank-N-Furter builds his own man and a whole host of participation for the audience to enjoy.

Presented by The Mystic Society of Rocky Horror.

Audience participation is encouraged! All props and costumes are allowed EXCEPT rice, because rice is too hard to clean up and we want to keep the theater in good shape. The Mystic Society of Rocky Horror will sell $5 bags of most props in the lobby before each show, but you may bring your own.

This drama tells the extraordinary story of Jack, a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma. Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. However, they are trapped in a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named "Room." As Jack's curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma's resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.

"ROOM" starts at the Crescent Theater on November 13th for an 11-day run.


Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, lead the cast of a powerful drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain. The stirring story centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.'s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life. When increasingly aggressive police action forces Maud and her dedicated fellow suffragettes underground, they engage in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the authorities, who are shocked as the women's civil disobedience escalates and sparks debate across the nation. Inspired by true events, SUFFRAGETTE is a moving drama exploring the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women's right to vote - their jobs, their homes, their children, and even their lives. The film also stars Ben Whishaw, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson, Romola Garai, and Natalie Press. SUFFRAGETTE is directed by BAFTA Award winner Sarah Gavron from an original screenplay by Emmy Award winner Abi Morgan.

SUFFRAGETTE is November 25th to the Crescent Theater in Mobile, AL.
