Ethan Hawke, in Richmond for the filming of his latest endeavor, the SHOWTIME limited series, “The Good Lord Bird”, will be at the Byrd Theatre on Sunday, October 6th to participate in a live Q&A session following the screening of his film “Blaze”. The film will screen at 7:30 PM on Sunday, October 6th.
Blaze is inspired by the life of Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze’s past, present and future.
The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact of his songs and his death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The braided storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze’s profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.
Ethan Hawke and the crew of Showtime’s “The Good Lord Bird” have been enjoying the Richmond area and the Byrd Theatre. They had a private screening of Unforgiven, the Clint Eastwood classic a few weeks ago.
Tickets are $6 and are available at Byrdtheatre.org.
