Whether you recognize him in a blonde wig as Andy Warhol from The Doors biopic, the creepy villain from the first Charlie’s Angels, or most likely, George McFly in Back to the Future, Crispin Hellion Glover has probably left an impression on you. He’s not just a one-trick pony though; this actor has a robust arts career behind his blockbuster appearances. Years ago, he started his own production company to publish books and produce films that he directs and writes. With the exacting personality of an artist who lives for his work, Glover now tours with his films—and he’s making a stop in the Twin Cities tonight.
At the Heights Theater, Glover will present a one-hour “dramatic narration” of eight of his books (he’s written a dozen or so), while the stories are projected on screen. The screening of It is Fine! Everything is Fine, a drama exploring the haunting psyche of a man afflicted with cerebral palsy, follows the projections, and he’ll stick around afterward for a Q&A session and book signing. 7 p.m. $20. –EK
