After more than five decades of performing and with more than 200 recordings under his belt, Canada's most famous folk-pop singer-songwriter, Gordon Lightfoot, continues to entertain and inspire. The multi-platinum-selling artist, famous for his deep baritone and 12-string finger-picking skills, had success in the 1960s with songs like "If You Could Read My Mind," "For Lovin' Me," "Early Morning Rain" and "Steel Rail Blues." But it was the recording of his songs by major names -- from Elvis Presley and John Mellencamp to Neil Young and Bob Dylan -- that cemented Lightfoot's near-mythic status in the folk canon. With more than 20 albums and five Grammy nominations to his name, Lightfoot is in exclusive company as one of music's all-time greats. Presented at The Hanover Theatre in Worcester, "Gordon Lightfoot in Concert: The Legend Lives On" will feature Lightfoot's well-known hits as well as some deep album cuts for die-hard fans, all woven together with Lightfoot's own behind-the-scenes stories and personal anecdotes.

Set in medieval times, this bawdy black comedy centers on a rag-tag group of financially irresponsible French monks whose patron saint seems to have deserted them. Desperate for a way to save their monastery from economic ruin, the monks appear to be rescued when a cunning, one-eyed traveling minstrel teaches them an outrageous new way to fill their coffers. In crafting this clever comedy, award-winning playwright Michael Hollinger ("Opus") drew inspiration from the true exploits of two feuding French monasteries in the 9th century and the widespread practice of buying, selling, stealing and faking holy relics in the early days of Christianity, when souvenirs from the saints were big business. Enjoy this Burlington Players production of "Incorruptible" at the Park Playhouse. [less-]
