Crispin Glover extravaganza
Connoisseurs of the peculiar and devotees of the weird, take note. Eccentric film actor, director and screenwriter, recording artist, publisher, author and all-around renegade Crispin Glover will host a rare two-night multimedia extravaganza at the Heights Theatre. Glover is best known for playing oddballs including Marty McFly’s twitchy dad in “Back to the Future,” Andy Warhol in “The Doors” and the Knave of Hearts in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” It’s his non-acting projects, however, that crank the freaky-meter all the way up and break off the knob. Monday at 7, Glover performs his “Big Slide Show Part 2,” a one-hour dramatic narration of eight of his illustrated projected books. He will then present the Twin Cities premiere of his surreal psychosexual 2007 feature film “It is fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE” (Part Two of the “It” Trilogy). Tuesday, he will present “Big Slide Show Part 1,” followed by his 2005 feature “What is it?” (Part One of the “It” Trilogy). Each evening, Glover will conduct a Q&A and a book-signing, events that have been known to stretch on till the wee hours. (Heights Theatre, 3951 Central Av. NE., Columbia Heights, $20, www.take-up.org.)
