Movie Night – “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”

Image may contain: 2 people
Join us for another Movie Night at Common Root, hosted by Larry!

Saturday, August 5 at 8 PM we’ll be showing “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”

Originally a musical – written, directed and starring John Cameron Mitchell, it was made into this movie in 2001. The play was revived in 2014 with Neil Patrick Harris stepping into the lead role. It’s a musical, so there are a lot of songs. My two favorites from the soundtrack are “The Origin of Love” and “Sugar Daddy”.

There are strong sexual themes, so probably not a good fit for youngsters. As always, popcorn will be provided. “But Larry, what’s it about?” “It’s about 95 minutes.” Thank you, thank you.

Community Support Circle

Going through a rough time? Feeling like no one could possibly understand what you’re going through? You might be surprised by the warmth and kindness of others just like you!

The Common Root Community Support Circle was created to give folks a place to talk about what’s troubling them in safe environment where they will be listened to and supported on their journeys.

Our next circle will be held Sunday, July 30th from 5-6:30 PM at Common Root.

Circles will be facilitated by a few Common Root folks and others are welcome to jump in with topics for discussion, ice-breakers, and encouragement. We’ll ask that any information shared within the Circle does not leave it and that everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

We’d love to see you there.
