2023 Shows

The Glass Menagerie
By Tennessee Williams
June 1-10, 2023 in Procunier Hall at The Palace Theatre
Directed by John Pacheco
Presented by Pacheco Theatre
The Glass Menagerie is a memory play as told to us by Tom Wingfield, a merchant marine looking back on the Depression years he spent with his overbearing Southern genteel mother, Amanda, and his sickly, cripplingly shy sister, Laura. Pressured by his mother to help find Laura a suitable husband, Tom invites an acquaintance to the apartment from the factory where he works. Each of these characters invents beautiful fantasy worlds in order to survive their difficult, and sometimes ugly, lives. Williams’ intensely personal and brilliantly tender masterpiece exposes the complexity of our memories, and the ways in which we can never truly escape them.

Runtime: 2 hours including one 15 minute intermission.

Tom Green
June 17, 2023 on the Main Stage at The Palace Theatre
Experience a live, unrehearsed and unhinged Tom Green.
After living in the USA for decades, Tom Green recently relocated to Canada, where he starred in Amazon Prime's "LOL: Last One Laughing Canada." He cracked up many of Canada's funniest comedians, including K. Trevor Wilson, Dave Foley, Colin Mochrie and special guest P.K. Subban. Tom's program "The Tom Green Show," which began on Ottawa cable TV and moved to MTV, influenced the rise of shock comedy shows like "Jackass." Tom's appeared in several films, including "Charlie's Angels," "Road Trip," "Stealing Harvard," "Shred" and "Freddy Got Fingered," which he wrote and directed. Tom's TV appearances include hosting "Saturday Night Live." He is among the few comedians to guest-host for David Letterman on "Late Show with David Letterman." The eccentric, funny man was also a contestant on "Celebrity Big Brother," in which, despite being Canadian, he was voted America's favourite house guest. He competed on "The Celebrity Apprentice" with former U.S. president Donald Trump. In 2006 Green, a pioneer in independent web-casting, was producing a talk show from his Los Angeles home. Fellow comedian Joe Rogan named Green's show as an influence on his podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience." Numerous podcasters and other online content creators have cited Green as a pioneer in the medium. Tom's battle with testicular cancer was chronicled in the short film "The "Tom Green Cancer Special." The topic was also covered in his 2004 autobiography "Hollywood Causes Cancer: The Tom Green Story." Don't miss this rare opportunity to see Tom Green live on stage! Uncensored show. Discretion advised.

A Film Written by Woo-sang Park, Y.K. Kim, Joseph Diamand
Saturday, July 29, 2023 at The Palace Theatre
Directed by: Woo-sang Park, Y.K. Kim
Come celebrate Odyssey Records and Cinema's 5th Anniversary in Old East Village with the 80s classic, Miami Connection
Directed by 9th-degree black belt/philosopher/author/inspirational speaker Grandmaster Y.K. Kim, the one-of-a-kind MIAMI CONNECTION is one of the most entertaining martial arts films made in America that you will ever see. The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice in the streets of Orlando. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine” . . . and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION.
Doors open at 8:30 pm, Movie starts at 9:00 pm
Runtime: 90 minutes
Tickets $20 (inclusive of fees)
