TRUE STORIES

October 13th | Staff Birthday Picks at The Babcock Theatre

Another wacky Birthday Pick from Creative Director Brian Oestreich, the man that tries to bring some under-appreciated gems to the theater.

From the mind of David Byrne, front man of Talking Heads, comes True Stories - the first and only film directed by the musical icon! An ode to the extraordinariness of ordinary life, follow David to Virgil, Texas where the heartland of good honest Americans meets the hyperrealistic vista of  80s capitalism as the citizen prepare for the annual Celebration of Specialness. A uniquely honest and loving vision of America, this musical journey to Virgil introduced us to John Goodman in his first major role, and is a surreal and charming slice of cinema that you'll be glad you experienced.
