And what about Judge Wise O. Al? Is justice on his side—or does he have a secret to hide? Then there's the media— have they come to accurately report the proceedings—or to turn the courtroom into a media circus? This rollicking, fun-filled, action-packed trial-of-the-century with a lesson or two learned along the way, all ends happily ever after, of course...

  MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS

  July 26 through July 28

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed eight times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again; "the perfect balance of the cerebral and the comic.... To Purchase Tickets &  For More Information, Click Here

Elliott Landy's Woodstock Vision: The Spirit of a Generation

Elliott Landy, born in 1942, began photographing the anti-Vietnam war movement and the underground music culture in New York City in 1967.

He photographed many of the underground rock and roll superstars, both backstage and onstage, from 1967 to 69.

His images of Bob Dylan and The Band, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Joan Baez, Van Morrison, Richie Havens, and many others documented the music scene during that classic rock and roll period which culminated with the 1969 Woodstock Festival, of which he was the official photographer.

After that, Elliott moved on to other inspirations and art forms, photographing his own children and travels, creating impressionist flower photographs and doing motion and kaleidoscopic photography in both still and film formats.

His photographs have been published worldwide for many years in all print mediums including covers of Rolling Stone, Life, the Saturday Evening Post, etc. and album covers, calendars, photographic book collections, etc.

He has published Woodstock Vision, The Spirit of A Generation, in book and CD-ROM format, and authored the book Woodstock 69, The First Festival.

He is currently publishing a series of limited edition lithographs of his classic rock photographs. To additionally view and purchase Elliott Landy's photographs and merchandise, click here to visit his website.
