    National Theatre Live: 'Follies'

    National Theatre Live: 'Follies'

    Tools

    Tue., Nov. 21, 7 p.m.

    There’s nothing quite like a trip down memory lane with old friends and colleagues. In Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical Follies, several former performers gather in a soon-to-be-demolished Broadway theater to look back on their glory days as stars of a well-known musical revue. The ladies laugh, lament and, of course, lift their voices in soaring numbers such as “I’m Still Here” and “Who’s That Woman?” On Thursday, a cast of 37, including Imelda Staunton and Tracie Bennett, performs the bittersweet musical at London’s National Theatre, then audiences in South Burlington, Middlebury and St. Johnsbury watch an on-screen broadcast. at Catamount Arts Center in St. Johnsbury. Northeast Kingdom (map). $16-25.

    Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real

    Sun., Nov. 19, 7 p.m.

The singer and guitar player is referring to the tunes on his latest album with his band, Promise of the Real. Released this year, the group’s self-titled LP contains a dozen songs covering themes ranging from outlaws to love lost to hometown pride. After gaining experience as folk-rock legend Neil Young’s touring and studio band, Nelson (yes, he’s Willie’s son) and POTR take center stage at Rutland’s Paramount Theatre as part of a national tour. Country crooner Nikki Lane opens. at Paramount Theatre in Rutland. Rutland/Killington (map). $22.50.

    Candy Ambulance, Rooftop Love Club

    Candy Ambulance, Rooftop Love Club

    Tools

    Sun., Nov. 19, 8 p.m.

    Saratoga Springs, N.Y., three-piece Candy Ambulance are living examples of the rock-and-roll lifestyle. Loud guitars? Check. Near-naked live performances? Check. Songs about errant hand jobs, steamy trysts and weeklong benders? Check, check, check. But a glimmer of vulnerability appears beneath the band’s cocksure façade of sex, drugs and late-night chaos. Dynamic choices, such as frequent shifts in tempo and explosive choruses, imply personal volatility and vulnerability. Singer and guitarist Caitlin Barker furthers the dichotomy with her casual inflection and emotional resilience. Catch Candy Ambulance on Sunday, November 19, at the Monkey House in Winooski. Rooftop Love Club open. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $3/8. 18+.
