Walter Farley’s classic tale has been adapted with amazing facility by Carol Ballard and executive producer Francis Ford Coppola. Even though its essential features (shipwrecked child, desert island, magical stallion, ’40s New York) represented appalling production problems, the film jettisons most of the cuteness implicit in its theme and handles the material with dream-like clarity. A magnificently well-crafted movie. (Time Out London).
Tickets: $27.50 - $42.50. Buy tickets online.

The Philadelphia Folksong Society welcomes Dr. Ralph Stanley to the Colonial Theatre. Since the 1940s, Ralph Stanley has been an icon of country, bluegrass and American music. A multiple Grammy winner and recipient of the Living Legend Award from the Library of Congress, Stanley’s music has impacted not only his listeners, but also his former band mates who include Ricky Skaggs, Keith Whitley and more. His contributions to the “O Brother Where Art Thou” soundtrack brought Dr. Stanley’s music back to the forefront of popular music where he has stood strong since. Opening act will be Mason Porter.
