SING YOUR LIFE
’80s Prom Sing-along at the Brattle Theatre
40 Brattle St., Harvard Square, Cambridge; Saturday at 10 p.m.; all-ages, $12 ($10 for students and members)
As Ferris Bueller said, “Life moves pretty fast.” So if you missed the news that legendary filmmaker John Hughes passed away earlier this month and didn’t mourn or celebrate his life properly, the Brattle is here to give you a musical mulligan in the key of life. The ’80s Prom Sing-along, hosted by ’FNX Radio’s Julie Kramer and organized by Action Pack, promises many Hughes memories all caught in one giant tiara of ’80s goodness, complete with props, lyrical captions on the big screen and the crowning of a king and queen. Relive the decade that will never go away.
