Lehman Trilogy

Simon Russell Beale, Ben Miles and Adam Godley perform in “The Lehman Trilogy,” a play about Lehman Brothers that will be screened at 7 p.m. Monday at the Center for the Arts. It will be broadcast live from London as part of “National Theatre Live.”

Dance quietly

Well, sort of.

Silent disco is coming to the Center for the Arts, giving Jackson’s resident ravers the opportunity to don some earphones and dance to their beats of choice, all in a room that’s otherwise silent save for the sound of shuffling feet.

The Beat Byrd, Lauren Chase, Luminesce, DJ Crayon, Hunter Singleton, Tristan J, KnewJack and others will all spin tracks at the show, which will kick off at 8 tonight. First-tier advance tickets cost $21, including processing fees. Day of tickets cost $31, including the same fees.

Love your locals

On Friday, Snow King Mountain Resort will spin its lifts for free for locals, giving shredders from Teton and Lincoln counties and Teton Valley, Idaho, the chance to ski for free. Adult tickets typically cost $59, so it’s a good deal. Lifts will be open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday.

A taste of the ’80s

The cover band craze is continuing.

The ’80s cover band 86 will play Friday at the Mangy Moose Saloon, bringing a slew of favorite covers — hair metal and otherwise — to the popular apres joint. The band is known for its rowdy Halloween and New Year’s Eve shows, so it’s sure to be a good time. Spandex and leather attire are encouraged to accompany the music of Bon Jovi, Warrant, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Journey and Def Leppard.

Tickets are free, and the person with the best ’80s costume will win $100. The band will play from 9 to 11:30 p.m. For information, call the Moose at 733-4913.

Split your board

And learn to shred.

Jackson Hole Mountain Guides is hosting an intro to splitboarding class Saturday in Grand Teton National Park. And though the class isn’t recommended as an alternative to a AIARE 1 course — the class commonly referred to as an “avy one” — it is intended to give splitboarders in the making a good overview of how to travel in the backcountry.

Tickets cost $200 per person. Another class will be held March 14.

Celebrate the night

The first of two celebrations for Jackson Hole Public Art’s 2019-20 Glow Nights installation is set for 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday in Teton Village, where four pieces are installed: Bland Hoke’s now perennial “Ice Glowbs,” CLB Architects and KWC’s “Get Out/Get In,” Maggie West’s “Flora Moon” and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s “Heart Mountain.”

Shake in your stirrups

The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar’s next show is on the horizon.

Runaway June, an up-and-coming Nashville, Tennessee, country act that just wrapped a 50-plus-day opening tour with Carrie Underwood, will play the bar at 8 p.m. Feb. 28. The group’s recent single, “Buy My Own Drinks,” recently became the first top five radio hit performed by an all-female country trio in 16 years. The group has picked up awards from the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Television. Rolling Stone ranked the group’s latest album “Blue Roses” as No. 14 on its list of the 40 best country and Americana albums of 2019.

Tickets cost $20 for general admission, $75 for Cowboy VIP Lounge and $100 for Cowboy VIP Premier. They will go on sale at noon Friday at CowboyBarJH.com and at the bar.

‘National Theatre Live’

Director Sam Mendes — whose intimate but epic World War I film “1917” just won best drama and best director awards on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards — leads a crackerjack cast (Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, Ben Miles) in the London production of Stefano Massini’s three-act, three-actor, century-spanning tragic-comedy, “The Lehman Trilogy.”

From 1844 Bavaria to 2007 New York City, the rags-to-riches-to-revolution story traces an epic and intimate arc of immigrants dreaming the American dream becoming plutocrats dashing that same dream.

The five-time Olivier Award nominee is this month’s “National Theatre Live” offering, which will be screened in high definition at 7 p.m. Monday at the Center for the Arts.

Tickets cost $23 for adults and $18 for students, including fees. They can be purchased at JHCenterForTheArts.org, 733-4900 or 265 S. Glenwood St.

Camenzind to speak

Conservation writer, research and cinematographer Franz Camenzind will speak during the Jackson Hole Bird and Nature Club’s meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Teton County Library.

Camenzind, the first person to film giant pandas in China, was executive director of the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance for 13 years and a founding member of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition. In a free talk, he’ll share his perspective on the loss of “natural values” in the face of “mechanized recreational experiences.”

For information about the meeting, email Bernie McHugh at jhbirdclub@gmail.com.
