Here's to another month of summer fun and activities! Let's see what's going on in the Burgh...
Around the City:
Guys & Dolls
August 8-13 | Benedum Center
Set in New York City, GUYS & DOLLS is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. The show takes us from the heart of Times Square, to the cafes of Havana, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
Crash Course: Social Justice and Our Contemporary Moment
August 9-16 | Carnegie Museum of Art
How can art call attention to contemporary issues or make a difference in the way we think about or react to each other? Delve into works of art that succinctly express themes of inequity, human rights, and oppression. Discuss the role of empathy in our personal interactions and how art can be a positive platform for social discourse. Engage in optional gallery discussions following in-class time exploring questions critical to societal transformation.
Bloomfield's Little Italy Days
August 17-20 | Liberty Ave
Get ready to immerse yourself in the vibrant energy of Little Italy Days, right in the heart of Bloomfield!
