Spring is coming! Already we have had guests who are taking on some of the easier hikes and even one that completed the Stowe Pinnacle climb (three hours to complete up and back). Even in the woods that surround Stone Hill the only traces of snow anywhere are the plowed diminishing piles at the end of driveway. Already, we’ve pruned a dozen bushes and begun cleaning beds.   Some of the daylillys have just broken ground. We’ve almost finished cleaning the sand from the parking lot! IT MUST BE SPRING!

Comedian Paul Reiser Takes The Stage Oct 16th — Our Next EVENINGS! Package

I’m sure it will come as no surprise to past guests of the Stone Hill Inn in Stowe, Vermont that the two cities that provide the greatest number of our guests are Boston and New York City. And, again, no surprise that both are lauded for their support of and the quality of the performing arts that they provide.   In our next production we have a very special talent that was born in New York, has performed many times in both Boston, New York, and has built an excellent reputation as a seriously entertaining, multi-dimensional performer.

We welcome comedian Paul Reiser at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe, VT on October 16!

PaulReiser-High-Res-200x300The Paul Reiser EVENINGS! package includes:

  • Two, side-by-side first row box seats at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts center.
  • A $50 credit towards dinner either before or after the performance.

Total cost including all taxes is $1,380.00. (Seems like a lot for three nights, but it’s October 16 – peak season. The dinner and tickets are a pass-through cost from us.) Tickets are limited. Haste, please.

In addition to being a nationally known comedian, Paul Reiser is also an actor, television personality, writer, author and musician. His October 16th performance at the beautiful Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center will highlight the funny things about life, love, and relationships. Paul’s Spruce Peak show is part of his nationwide, national tour.

Paul is one of those folks that is blessed with a basket of gifts, and he continues to add to his list of accomplishments. In addition to co-creating and starring in the critically-acclaimed NBC series, Mad About You (1992), which garnered him Emmy, Golden Globe, American Comedy Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, his successes also include his book, “Couplehood”, which sold over two million copies and reached the number one spot on “The New York Times” best-seller list, and “Babyhood”, his follow-up book about the adventures of being a first-time father also made “The New York Times” best-seller list. (IMBd).

Born and raised in New York City, Reiser went to college at the State University of New York at Binghamton, where he majored in Music – pAULREISERIMBDPiano and Composition.  After developing his stand-up comic skills in the New York clubs, Reiser had a breakout film role in 1982 when he appeared in Diner, a coming-of-age film directed by Barry Levinson. Reiser’s character, Modell, a closet stand-up comedian, effectively brought Reiser’s abilities to the attention of Hollywood.

He followed this success by playing a detective in Beverly Hills Cop (1984), a role he reprised in its sequel, Beverly Hills Cop II (1987). Reiser also had roles in James Cameron’s Aliens (the corrupt Carter Burke); The Marrying Man (1991) and Aliens (1986). (Wikipedia)

Reiser’s TV fame began when he starred as one of two possible fathers of a teenage girl in the TV sitcom My Two Dads (1987–90), and later came to prominence in North America as Paul Buchman in Mad About You (1992–99) in which Helen Hunt co-starred as his on-screen wife. He was also the co-composer of the show’s theme song, “The Final Frontier” (with Don Was), and performed the piano for the theme’s recording.[6] For the show’s final season, Reiser and Hunt received $1 million ($1.4 million today) per episode.

More recently, he starred in two original movies for Showtime – Strange Relations (2001) (aka “Strange Relations”), opposite Julie Walters, and Chazz Palminteri’s Women vs. Men (2002), opposite Joe Mantegna and Christine Lahti. He is ranked 77th on Comedy Central’s 2004 list of the “100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time”.

This EVENINGS! program with Paul Reiser and wonderful box seats looks to be a delightful evening. Paul, clearly, is a man comfortable being on stage and is blessed with insightful comedic talent wherein he will likely poke at us, give us reason to laugh at ourselves, and persuade us to simply relax and enjoy.

Over the course of her acclaimed career, Mary Chapin Carpenter has recorded 13 albums and sold over 13 million records. With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations,) two CMA awards and was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012.   She is the only artist to have won four consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, which she received from 1992 to 1995

Excitement and fearless creativity have been common threads throughout Mary Chapin Carpenter’s two-and-a-half-decade recording career, during which she’s sold more than 13 million records and developed a remarkably loyal and devoted international fan base.  Stylistically she defies easy categorizing, preferring to blend country, Americana, and soft rock. Her songs speak to the most personal of life’s details and the most universal.  She will perform in Stowe with her trio.

 

Mary Chapin Carpenter

 

Born in Princeton, New Jersey, Carpenter began playing guitar and writing songs early in life, and was playing her songs in D.C. clubs before she was out of her teens. Word of Carpenter’s talents eventually reached Nashville, winning her a deal with Columbia Records, which released her 1987 debut album, Hometown Girl.

Her debut disc set the stage for the success of 1989’s State of the Heart and 1990’s Shooting Straight in the Dark, each of which produced four Top 20 hits, including the Grammy-winning smash “Down at the Twist and Shout.” Those releases were followed by the massive commercial breakthrough of 1992’s Come On Come On, which was certified quadruple platinum and yielded no less than seven charting singles.

More success followed with such albums as the platinum Stones in the Road, A Place in the World, Time* Sex* Love* and Between Here and Gone. Carpenter moved to Rounder/Zoë in time for 2007’s Grammy-nominated The Calling, which was followed by the seasonally themed Come Darkness Come Light: 12 Songs of Christmas, the Grammy- nominated The Age of Miracles and Ashes and Roses.

In January 2014 Ms. Carpenter wrote and released, Songs from the Movie, her debut orchestral recording.  Later that month she appeared with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra at the prestigious Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow to introduce the songs from her new album. Carpenter appeared as a guest with orchestras in the U.S. and the U.K. throughout 2014.

In addition to five Grammy Awards, Mary was named the Country Music Association’s Female Vocalist of the Year in 1992 and 1993 and in 2012 was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Her compositions have also been covered by a diverse assortment of artists including Joan Baez, Wynonna Judd, Cyndi Lauper, Trisha Yearwood, Maura O’Connell, Mary Black and Dianne Reeves and has also collaborated, on record and/or on stage, with the likes of Joan Baez, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, the Indigo Girls and Tony Bennett.
