“The Graduate’s” unlikely love triangle @TybeePost

By Jim Reed/SMN

Looking ahead to Sept. 7, the Tybee Post Theater (one of our area’s restored, single-screen historic cinemas) presents a one-show-only revival of the iconic romantic dramedy “The Graduate” starring Dustin Hoffman (“Outbreak”), Katharine Ross (“Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”) and Anne Bancroft (“The Miracle Worker”). Directed by the late, great Mike Nichols (“The Birdcage”), co-written by Buck Henry (TV’s “Get Smart”) and featuring a best-selling soundtrack of Simon & Garfunkel tunes, this seminal 1960s motion picture about the unlikely love triangle formed by a young man, his girlfriend and her mother earned six Oscar nominations and influenced untold scores of coming-of-age pictures around the globe.

A legitimate masterpiece of awkward comedic timing and bittersweet subject matter, echoes of “The Graduate” can be plainly seen and felt in such disparate later works as Wes Anderson’s “Rushmore” and Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” If you don’t happen to live on the island, it’s well worth the drive to see this one in a theatrical setting. Plus, admission price for this 7 p.m. show includes a glass of wine (if you’re old enough) and a piece of chocolate. Beat that!
