We finally have a new layout for the site as well as a new name. I changed the site’s name from Salt of the Earth to something a little more dynamic. I came up with AERODYNAMIC. The word means a branch of mechanics that deals with the motion of air and other gases and with the effects of such motion on bodies in the medium. Basically in this case referring a lot to Treat’s love of flight and all that implies with that motion. We also have a newly minted Twitter account. You can find it @treatwilliamson. If you want to keep posted on the updates to this site, please feel free to follow us there. I’m hoping to get some of the backlog done over the next little while. So please keep watching this space or the Twitter account. I still have the gallery to get done please be patient as I get that updated. Thanks for sticking around.

I want to take this time to wish Treat the happiest of days. He turns a very young 66 today and he doesn’t look anywhere over 50. Please take care Treat and have an awesome day with Pam, Ellie and Gil.

The website DenofGeek has named two of Treat’s films as some of the most under appreciated of 1984. In the list, they name FLASHPOINT where Treat played the part of Ernie Wyatt, and the film ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA where Treat played the part of James Conway O’Donnell. Here’s what DenofGeek had to say.

9. Flashpoint

Here’s a brilliantly paranoid throwback to the conspiracy thrillers of the Nixon era – most obviously Parallax View. The chance discovery of a corpse and a partly-buried jeep reveal long-hidden links back to the assassination of John F Kennedy, which spells all sorts of trouble for the Texas cops who unearth the whole affair. Kris Kristofferson and Treat Williams star in a thriller told by director William Tannen in taut, terse fashion.

3. Once Upon A Time In America

Sergio Leone’s sumptuous, punishingly long drama about organized crime in New York was subjected to a brutal edit for its North American release. Chopped down from 229 minutes to 139, the edited Once Upon A Time In America was scorned by critics for its lack of coherence, and largely shunned by audiences. It was a cruel fate for a superbly acted and mounted film, with Robert De Niro and James Woods both magnificent as Jewish gangsters climbing the ranks of Prohibition-era Manhattan.

If you can’t spend the near four hours of attention the film requires, our advice is to watch it in two parts. Woods once described Once Upon A Time In America as Leone’s finest film. He may well be right.

Double post today. Looks like Treat will be a busy bee. Not only is he starring in the Hallmark series of films CHESAPEAKE SHORES, but he’s also scheduled to take the stage in a production of MAN OF LAMANCHA at the Weston, Vermont playhouse.

Weston’s 2016 season reflects growing national stature

Weston Playhouse has been “breaking a leg” for 80 years and will be celebrating with not one, but two gala seasons. The summer 2016 season will begin the celebration, opening with “Man of La Mancha” starring Treat Williams, and feature the long-running Broadway hit “Mamma Mia!”

“There are barely more than a dozen theaters in the country that have achieved that (80 year) standing,” Producing Artistic Director Steve Stettler explained in a phone interview.

“Happily for Weston, we’ve got to that point where our age starts to look equal to our accomplishments,” he said. “More important than that is that this needs to be a celebration not so much of our past but of our future.”

The 2016 main stage season also includes “Round and Round the Garden,” the third play in British playwright Alan Ayckbourn’s comic trilogy, and the Arthur Miller classic “All My Sons,” continuing Weston’s American Masters series. The intimate Other Stages productions, including the annual children’s show, will be announced when details have been confirmed.

The company is also in the midst of a $10 million capital campaign to create a year-round cultural center for retreats, workshops and performances on its village campus. For its second year of celebration, Weston hopes to open its Walker Farm arts center, including a state-of-the-art studio theater, in 2017.

Weston Playhouse Theatre Company is Vermont’s oldest professional theater company and has long been the benchmark for the state. But, more and more, with its top-notch productions such as last season’s “Guys and Dolls” and “The Glass Menagerie,” and its development of new musical theater, Weston is seen as competitive nationally.

“This is a vibrant and important company that is making a major contribution in its own home state and region, but is increasingly making work that is recognized on a national level,” Stettler said.

Part of Weston’s success comes from its “Vermont values.”

“What’s really special about Weston is we have the combination of a high level of artistry and a high level of humanity,” Stettler said. “There are a lot of companies around the country that do really good work and are not fun places to be on the inside. And there are plenty of places around the country — which Weston was — that are not doing the work that they would like to or should, but are creating family.

“Weston is finally at the point where it’s doing both. And I can say that with huge confidence,” he said.

The main stage season will open with “Man of La Mancha” (June 28-July 16), starring Williams. Having launched his career with the Broadway production of “Grease” and the film version of “Hair,” Williams will return to the musical stage as Cervantes/Don Quixote under the direction of Tony winner Wayne Cilento (“The Who’s Tommy,” “Wicked”).

“Treat is so pumped about doing this piece and bringing his friend Wayne Cilento, who is Broadway royalty as much as Treat is industry royalty,” Stettler said. “That Weston gives them a playground for them to do this together is just so exciting for them and for us.”

In collaboration with Dorset Theatre Festival and White River Junction’s Northern Stage, Weston will produce “Round and Round the Garden” (July 21-30), of the “The Norman Conquests.” The three companies will share a cast and creative team in bringing the trilogy to life, encouraging audiences to follow the exploits that take place in and around an English country house on a summer weekend.

Weston is one of the first regional theaters to secure the rights to “Mamma Mia!” (Aug. 4-20), one of the longest running shows in Broadway history, a feel-good musical based on the songs of ABBA. Producing founding director Tim Fort (“42nd Street,” “Les Misérables”) reunites with choreographer Michael Raine (“Guys and Dolls,” “A Chorus Line”) to deliver this blockbuster.

Continuing its five-year American Masters series, Weston celebrates Miller’s 100th birthday with “All My Sons” (Aug. 25-Sept. 4). Director Mary B. Robinson (Weston’s “Copenhagen”) will be at the helm of this Tony-winning play. It will include lectures, a statewide teachers workshop, school matinees and a performance at the Flynn Center in Burlington.

“This is a portrait of a company that I’ve always wanted us to be, that we’re finally beginning to show that we are,” Stettler said. “This coming season gives a picture of where Weston playhouse is — and where it’s going.”

After the cancellation of AMERICAN ODYSSEY, Treat will be starring in a series of films from the novels called CHESAPEAKE SHORES. Treat will star alongside Jesse Metcalfe, Diane Lane, and Barbara Niven. Treat will be playing the part of Mick O’Brien. Here’s hoping the best for it. More news as it becomes available.

Treat Williams & More to Star in Hallmark Channel’s CHESAPEAKE SHORES Movie Series

Hallmark CHANNEL announces the start of production on “Chesapeake Shores,” a series of Hallmark CHANNEL original movies debuting on the network in 2016. The film is based on the novels of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods. Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas,” “Desperate Housewives”) stars alongside Meghan Ory (“Once Upon A Time”), Golden Globe(R) nominated actor Treat Williams (“Everwood,” “Hair”), Academy Award(R) nominee Diane Ladd (“Wild At Heart”) and Barbara Niven (“Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove”) in this epic, multi-generational family drama.

“It is a true honor to bring to life Sherry Woods’ captivating novel of family and forgiveness,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “This amazing, all-star cast will expertly portray Woods’ emotional, poignant and romantically woven story. We know our audience will be as taken and swept away by ‘Chesapeake Shores’ as we are.”

Ory portrays Abby O’Brien – a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to two young daughters. After years away from her family, she takes a trip from New York City to her hometown of Chesapeake Shores. The visit brings her face to face with her past, including her high school sweetheart Trace (Metcalfe), her undemonstrative father Mick (Williams), her daring sister Jess, and her beloved grandmother Nell. This trip also makes Abby notice the toll her career has taken on her ability to be a hands-on mother to her daughters. As she spends more time in her charming hometown, Abby begins to consider a permanent move to the town she once called home — Chesapeake Shores.

Metcalfe portrays Trace Riley, a handsome musician who was Abby’s first love. After high school, Abby abruptly left Trace and Chesapeake Shores without warning, an action he has never forgiven her for. Trace eventually follows his dreams to become a musician, only to return to Chesapeake Shores years later and find that Abby, too, is back in their hometown. The two remember what they once had, sparking deep and unresolved emotions.

Williams portrays Mick O’Brien, the commanding patriarch of the O’Brien clan. Mick’s wife walked out on him years ago, leaving him a single father working hard to provide for his family. Unfortunately his work took precedent, which made him emotionally unavailable to his children. When his daughter Abby returns home, it marks a new beginning for Mick and Abby as they work to reconnect and repair their strained relationship.

Ladd portrays Nell O’Brien, the beloved matriarch of the O’Brien clan and Mick’s mother. She is a warm, maternal and wise woman — with a lovely Irish lilt – who took over rearing of the O’Brien brood when her son’s wife, Megan, abandons the family. Through the decades, she is the glue that keeps the fractious, fractured family together.

Niven portrays Megan, Mick O’Brien’s estranged wife.

Dan Paulson is the executive producer. Martin Wood is the director and executive producer. Vicki Sotheran and Greg Malcolm are the producers. Nancey Silvers is the writer and executive producer, based on the books by Sherryl Woods, who also serves as an executive producer.

I know I’m behind in Treat’s episodes of AMERICAN ODYSSEY, and I’m sincerely sorry. My mom died May 16 and I’ve had a ton of things to do to settle her estate. Considering the finale is coming up in two weeks, I’m going to wait till I have the next two episodes done and post them all at once. Thank you for understanding.
