My membership, my community

This week, I opened up my mailbox and found a letter from The Music Hall that didn’t come from my department. It was my yearly reminder to renew my membership. As I wrote my check, I got to thinking about what it means to me to be a member. Read More Read More
Film discussion: Spotlight Wildcard

Film discussion: Spotlight

Anyone who has ever recommended a movie to a friend knows the dilemma: You can be calm and judicious in your praise and risk sounding unenthusiastic (which means they won’t want to see it); or you can jump up and down and use every superlative at your disposal (which, for many young people is confined to “Awesome!”) and risk raising their expectations so high that they’re disappointed with the movie and will never watch another movie you recommend.

In Appreciation

Recently I was asked what I enjoy most about working at The Music Hall, and I found myself answering without pause: the people. Since joining TMH last year, I have been warmly welcomed by staff, board and committee members, and supporters alike – and have seen first-hand the pride and commitment they share in seeing this organization thrive.

Film discussion Tuesday night: Jafar Panahi’s Taxi

First of all, I wish each of you a Happy New Year! (I’d say it’s going pretty well so far although the dearth of snow is, of course, a black mark on the year’s record.)

A year in review: 2015

Usually here at The Music Hall we’re looking forward. We’re working on the next show, reading the next book, screening the next movie but today I thought I’d take some time to look back at the last year here at TMH and share some of my favorite moments. Read More Read More
An Interview with Mr. Pickwick Interviews

An Interview with Mr. Pickwick

The holidays in Portsmouth are a magical time, from the wreaths around the lamp-posts to the majestic tree in Market Square, it’s hard not to feel festive this time of year. While many people think of Portsmouth for the fabulous restaurants, the shopping is just as spectacular. This year, I’m thrilled to welcome Pickwick’s Mercantile as our Vintage Christmas sponsor, and I had the distinct honor of sitting down with the elusive Mr. Pickwick this past week for his first ever interview.  Read More Read More

Sponsor Spotlight:  C&J Bus Lines

This month we are celebrating the much-anticipated opening of White Christmas, the Musical as part of our Ogunquit Playhouse at The Music Hall series. This year, C&J Bus Lines partnered with us as the Presenting Sponsor of this series and I recently had an opportunity to ask C&J’s President Jim Jalbert more about this partnership—as well as his own favorite moment from this holiday classic—for this month’s Sponsor Spotlight.  If you haven’t had a chance to see Jim and his brother Walter in C&J’s White Christmas video challenge, be sure to check it out here!
