It was an era of turmoil. The United States was escalating its presence in Vietnam. Social protest in the country's streets and universities was at a high. The music was psychedelic. The touted film was "Easy Rider." It was a time of reflection--and a time of action. Movies have largely steered away from the hot issues of the late '60s, preferring the cooler climate of postwar, pre-Kennedy assassination America.

The first line of The Band's classic-rock staple "The Weight" draws a clear, almost cinematic picture of a lonely traveler pulling into a town called Nazareth. But which Nazareth? Did songwriter Robbie Robertson base the song on the Pennsylvania borough, the biblical town, or some other Nazareth? And is the song's story of generosity gone wrong based on real-life events? Had "The Weight" been a here-today, gone-tomorrow pop single, those questions might not matter.

Set designer James Eric has reconfigured the Greenway Court into an old-fashioned dance pavilion and more.
