Music, film, theater and U.S. immigration history

Are you ready to laugh, enjoy great music and expand your knowledge of American history? We have all that and more this month at Waterstone at Wellesley!

On May 7, film critic Dan Kimmel lead a screening and discussion of Gene Saks’ 1968 film, “The Odd Couple.” Get ready to laugh as you watch two recently divorced men (Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathau) with distinctive and clashing personalities move in together.

Continue your viewing pleasure on May 13 when Michael Goodwin Musical Theater presents “West Side Story” and “The Music Man.” Enjoy “Gary, Indiana,” “Till There Was You,” “Tonight,” “Maria” and the other beloved songs the two musicals have to offer. 

Later in the month, get ready to enjoy unique musical performances. The Needham Retired Men’s Glee Club will perform a large repertoire of songs—Broadway hits, sing-a-longs, folk tunes—for guests on May 16; bring your pipes and join in the fun! Then on May 20, the Kadima Band will introduce you to Klezmer music from Eastern Europe.

Round out the month with a historical presentation, “Before Ellis Island: Immigration through New York in the 1800s,” from Professor Brendan O’Malley of Newbury College. You’ll head home with a new understanding of the history of American immigration.

See below for full details. We hope to see you soon!
