Actor and film maker Crispin Glover, best known film roles including George McFly in the first “Back to the Future” movie and the rat-herding title character in the horror film “Willard,” will show off a few different facets of his talent when he appears July 5 at the Nightingale Theater, 1416 E. Fourth St.
Tickets for the evening, which begins at 7 p.m., are $25, and will be available only at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. The Nightingale accepts only cash. No one under the age of 18 will be admitted.
The event is sponsored by BookSmart Tulsa.
Glover will present what he calls his “Big Slide Show,” a collection of images taken from the books he has made. Glover takes volumes that are in the public domain and reworks them – redacting passages and adding illustrations and new texts – to create new works of art.
He will also screen his 2007 film “It is Fine! Everything is Fine,” a dark tale about a man with severe cerebral palsy whose fantasies about women take a violent turn. The film was written by and stars Steven C. Stewart, who had cerebral palsy.
The New York Times described the film as “Wildly impassioned and macabrely fascinating,” while Variety said the film is “as much a psychological horror film as it is an exercise in midnight movie madness.”
Glover will answer questions from the audience and will be signing copies of his books.
