Art for a New Year

While I know the New Year started several weeks ago, the holiday recovery time seems to take longer every year. But now that we are approaching the end of January (!), perhaps people are ready to start heading out again for theater, music, and other forms of art to engage and brighten their spirits.

Much Ado About Nothing opens tonight, Friday, February 27th, at DCP in Telford and runs through February 11, 2017. In this production of Shakespeare’s comedy;

Shakespeare’s themes of personal scandal and public reputation still hold true in today’s world of instant information and the 24-hour news cycle. This imaginative production features all the beauty of the original language blended with the trappings of our self-obsessed culture, enhanced by the original music composed by Bill Thompson (The Snow Ball).

Wine receptions are held after performances on opening weekend.DCP Theatre, (215) 234-0966, 795 Ridge Road, Telford, PA Tickets may be bought at the door, over the phone, or online.

A new farce, The Explorer’s Club has it’s world premiere tonight on stage at the Pennsylvania Playhouse, 390 Illick’s Mill Road, Bethlehem, Pa.

The show runs from January 27 – February 12, 2017.

The Allentown Art Museum, free on Thursdays from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. and on Sundays from noon – 4 p.m. (admission charge Tuesdays through Saturdays), will be unveiling its latest acquisition, the Franz Kline Mural this Sunday afternoon, January, 29, 2017. Several current exhibits will be closing in early February, so now would be a good time to run over and check them out, at 31 North Fifth Street, Allentown, PA.

This is also a great time for the movies – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story continues to play at our local Grand Theater in East Greenville, through February 2, 2017. The Hidden Figures (an amazing true story about the early days of NASA and the African-American women computers who made it a success) opens at The Grand on February 3 – 9, 2017.
