Hartford - "Wicked"
Posted on: 2014-11-13
When: November 5-23, 2014; Call for schedule of perfomances
Where:Mortensen Hall at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, 166 Capitol Ave., Hartford
What:Back by "popular" demand. Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon," and it continues to break box office records across North America. Winner of over 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is "Broadway's biggest blockbuster" (The New York Times). Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete - and completely satisfying - musical in a long time" (USA Today). Recommended for children 8 and older. Children under 4 not permitted. Strobe lights are used 55 minutes in to Act 1 and 26 minutes into Act 2. Tickets $25 - $105; for tickets or more information, call 860-987-5900 or visit www.bushnell.org 

 
Avon - Avon Library to host National Traveling Exhibit
Posted on: 2014-04-07
When: Saturday, November 1, 2014 through Sat. December 13, 2014
Where: Avon Library, 281 Country Club Road, Avon
What: First East Coast Stop, only appearance in CT! The Avon Free Public Library is pleased to announce that we have been selected to host the traveling exhibition "Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863 and the March on Washington, 1963" from Saturday, November 1, 2014 through Saturday, December 13, 2014. This will be the only Connecticut stop for the traveling version of the exhibit which is currently on view at the National Museum of American History in Washington DC. "Changing America" examines the relationship between two great people's movements that resulted in the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and in the March on Washington in 1963. Both grew out of decades of bold actions, resistance, organization, and vision. In the 19th century, enslaved and free Americans chipped away at slavery through daily acts of resistance, organized rebellions, and political pressure on politicians, generals, and the U.S. government, until the Emancipation Proclamation was issued. Similarly, throughout the next century, Black Americans organized parades and speeches on each Emancipation Day anniversary to remind the black community and the nation of a commitment that remained unfulfilled. These events and other 20th century demands for justice and equal rights culminated in the March on Washington. Held on Aug. 28, 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial in the nation's capital, the march celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. "Changing America" is presented by the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture and the National Museum of American History in collaboration with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The traveling exhibition is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information on the exhibit and related programs for the public, call 860-673-9712 or visit www.avonctlibrary.info.
