Laura Marling Live
Saturday, Sep 24, 7:30 pm

The Lincoln Theatre presents English singer/songwriter Laura Marling on Saturday, September 24th at 7:30pm
 
Laura Marling was only 16 years old when she emerged on the British indie scene in 2007 thanks to a handful of infectious singles made available on her MySpace profile. Endowed with a husky voice, an acoustic guitar, and a gift for building quirky, hooky folk songs, Marling quickly made a name for herself throughout England thanks to a heavy touring schedule and a few high-profile gigs. 2016 has seen Laura step back from her prolific album making of the past 10 years and instead she has embarked on a year of side projects. In September she will take to the road on a solo tour of smaller venues in North West America in the spirit of a good old fashioned road trip.

An Intimate Evening with Bebel Gilberto
Wednesday, Sep 28, 7:30 pm

 “Bebel Gilberto has taken on traditional bossa nova rhythms and infused it with her trademark alluring vocals to create a hypnotic new sound.” – NPR
 
“Atmosphere is everything to this music, and it’s an atmosphere that creates a cozy realm between the retro and the fashionable, and between Brazil and international clubland.” – New York Times
 
World-renowned singer-songwriter Bebel Gilberto, who has earned multiple Grammy nominations over the course of her career, has captivated fans and earned media acclaim worldwide with her trademark electronic bossa nova, taking over clubs around the world and positioning Bebel as one of the top-selling Brazilian artists in the U.S. since the ‘60s. Gilberto’s penchant for sonically transporting listeners to Brazil, with bright, incandescent bossa nova-infused melodies, lyrics about love, and a lilting performance style has earned her raves for her live performances.

National Theatre Live

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren and the Lincoln Theatre has been there from the start. They've since broadcast more than twenty other productions live from the National Theatre, and on occasion other theatres in the UK and we've screened them all.

Past broadcasts include Danny Boyle's Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden and The Last of the Haussmans with Julie Walters. This past season has included Coriolanus and War Horse and now NT Live has just announced their new season that we are excited to present: A Streetcar Named Desire, Skylight, Of Mice and Men, JOHN & Treasure Island.

Though each live broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the 'best seat in the house' view of each production.

Artist Statement:
 
My passion has always been to transform the artist's eye in practical visual forms in the landscape, until I realized the potential of the world of glass. Using glass has opened me up as an artist/landscape architect. It is my desire to integrate my knowledge of visual and 3-d form.
