Details of The Basement and the Ticket Luck value
The stage production of the play The Basement is based on the television series of the same name. Initially, Nobel laureate Harold Pinter penned it as a screenplay for a movie. Instead of making a movie, the screenplay was revised for the television show. The show successfully aired in 1967..
With a career spanning over fifty years, Harold was also famously known for his work as a director, an actor and a screenwriter. Although the British dramatist is deceased, his legacy continues in the form of his amazing work.. This fall, the play will be playing at the Subterranean -Chicago, Ottobar - Baltimore, Union Transfer - Philadelphia and The Studio at Webster Hall - New York. All you have to do is get The Basement tickets in time, before they all sell out.
The Basement is based on an unpublished twenty-seven page script known as “The Compartment.” Harold penned the screenplay in 1963-1965 for a movie that was part of the triple-bill “Project I,” but the movie was never made. His contribution for “The Compartment” remained dormant until the script was revised for the television series named The Basement. Directed by Charles Jarrott, the television premiere aired on BBC2 as part of the “Theatre 625 series.” The cast included Derek Godfrey as Law, Harold Pinter as Stott and Kika Markham as Jane.
The stage adaptation premiered in New York City at the Eastside Playhouse in 1968. Directed by James Hammerstein, the play was performed as a double bill with Harold's other play titled, “The Tea Party.” The play opens in a basement flat and features the characters at various times of the day and night. The story circles around two men namely “Law” played by Ted van Griethuysen and “Stott” played by James Ray Jane. These two men compete with one another over the possession of a “basement flat” as well as their (at times) mutual girlfriend named, “Jane."
During the play, the men reverse their roles with respect to one another. The reversed role defines who is in power with the ownership of the flat as well as possession of Jane, at a certain time. The changing setting of the setup further defines the sovereignty of the person in-charge at that point in time. The changing circumstances not only affect the men but Jane as well, and she tends to adapt accordingly. Find out how the story unfolds by getting The Basement tickets. The stage production will soon be coming to an arena near you.
The plot as well as the character relationship between Law and Stott bears resemblance to the prose fiction work of Harold in "The Examination" and "Kullus." The stage personnel who worked behind the curtains to make the play a success include Ed Wittstein who worked on Scenery, Neil Peter Jampolis was in charge of Lighting and Deidre Cartier designed the Costumes. The amazing production will soon be coming to perform in an arena near you. Do visit the scheduled venue to enjoy the play with your friends and family.
Basement is a band from Ipswich that packs a serious punch. They first came on to the scene in 2009 and have since released two studio albums, three extended plays and a demo. After going on a hiatus for some time, their recent announcement about a reunion has come as a source of major joy for their fans. They may seem like an underground band that caters to a selected audience, but talk to anyone with Basement tickets to their sold-out US tour and they will tell you otherwise.
Basement began to perform in 2009 and that remained the case till 2012 before they called it a day after the This Is Goodbye tour. Memories of their last performance at the Camden Underground in London are still fresh in the minds of their hardcore fans. But the wait is finally over because they are back. The band announced their reunion on their Facebook page in January 2014 and now fans will finally get a chance to hear new tracks by their favorite band live on stage.
The hiatus was a carefully thought out practical decision. Every band member was working on “real-life stuff” as they call it. Andrew went back to school to to become a certified teacher. James graduated from art school and the rest worked on their own respective careers. They went away, did what they wanted to do and then came back to restart Basement.
Basement tickets are now in demand for their scheduled gigs at The Glass House in Pomona, the Echoplex in Los Angeles, the Subterranean in Chicago and The Sinclair Music Hall in Cambridge and other concerts on the road trip.
Basement's sound draws its inspiration from the 90's acts like Sunny Day Real Estate and the iconic Nirvana. The sound is heavy but a complete mix of beats, drums and some great guitar-work mixed in with catchy tunes. They released their debut extended play titled Songs About The Weather in May 2010 and just three months later, they had landed themselves a record deal with Run For Cover Records.
They were the only band from the United Kingdom on the label so expectations were high from a band that was quite young in terms of the time spent in the music world. They had talent and it all turned out to be a great experience for them. Basement started recording and came out with I Wish I Could Stay Here, their first ever full-length studio album. What followed were several promotional tours, including a trip to Australia. They also performed and traveled with Daylight to the United States. Then in 2012 came their second, and last before their hiatus album, Colormeinkindness.
Basement broke up suddenly and the news of their return came out of the blue as well. In this age of social media frenzy, the band managed to quietly get back together and also record and release a new EP, titled Further Sky. It has two new songs, “Summer's Color” and “Jet.” The EP also features the band's cover of “Animal Nitrate” by Suede.
The band members Andrew Fisher, Alex Henery, Ronan Crix and James Fisher are very clear about their music. According to them they are not here to “make it,” but are simply here to “make music.” They are independent and play an active part in every aspect of how they want the band to come across. From merchandise designs, flyer artwork and even the website they do it like they want to do it.
The most important thing is that they consider this a part of their lives as a creative outlet, rather than a full-time career. It's a fun and different approach to music from what we see these days and goes to show Basement is a project that is purely driven by the members' passion to make music. Now that they are on tour, it is a great chance for their fans to watch them live.
Basement are as unique as they come. They do things their own way and that arguably is their biggest strength as well.
