Creator and performer Adil Mansoor brings us on his deeply personal journey to translate and adapt the play _Antigone_ with his Ammi (his mother). Despite the deep love between them, their relationship is strained – Ammi struggles to accept Adil’s queerness and turns towards her faith in an attempt to save her son in the afterlife. Adil turns to an ancient Greek theatrical text to break the silence between them. _Amm(i)gone_ asks: How do you choose between love and faith? What is lost (or gained) in translation, and what transcends language itself? Through Greek tragedy, teachings from the Quran, and audio conversations in Urdu and English, Mansoor creates a theatrical blend of lecture and personal story about locating love across faith.

David Birney’s entertaining adaptation is the portrait of two very unusual people, those first lovers who met under rather complicated circumstances and found a way to build a life together. Written through the eyes of America’s greatest humorist, Mark Twain’s story set within the Garden of Eden bursts with wit, laughter, and the lyric poignance of the first love and the first loss, taking audiences on a delightful journey of self-discovery and exploration. _Mark Twain's The Diaries of Adam and Eve_ plays at Legacy Theatre May 30-June 16, Thursdays-Sundays. Tickets are on sale now at or through the Box Office at (203) 315-1901. _Mark Twain's The Diaries of Adam and Eve_ is sponsored by Branford Coworking and WSHU Public Radio, and Legacy Theatre's 2024 Mainstage Season is sponsored by Atlas Healthcare.

Four-time Grammy Award winning artist Gary Clark Jr. announces his upcoming North American tour in support of his hotly anticipated new album, JPEG RAW, set for March 22 release via Warner Records. This new body of work signals a brave new world for Clark’s ever-expanding creative palette. The new music is dense and adventurous with a more cohesive synthesis of his eclectic musical universe. His samples, Thelonious Monk and Sonny Boy Williamson, decorate flourishes of African, World Music, and even Jazz while merging with rock, R&B, hip-hop and blues; familiar areas he has ventured before, this time with more unity forging a fresh new style.

David Dunlop’s solo show Light Fantastic offers a visually transformative experience in this exciting exhibition of 27 new and adventurous works. Dunlop is a master of luminosity. His use of multi-layered translucent glazes, reflective metal surfaces and bright underpainting result in paintings that appear to possess their own inner light. He paints on copper, galvanized steel, and brushed gold and silver laminated aluminum which give his work the radiance of Dutch and Italian Renaissance paintings. Historically, artists have quested for luminance, and like Dunlop, wanted their works to glow in their settings, whether it be daylight or candlelight. David is also well known for his lively and entertaining PBS series, Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop. We are honored to present these newest works from this versatile and award-winning artist. The Gallery is located at 679 Boston Post Road, Madison, CT. Gallery hours are Tues-Sat, 11am-5pm, and by appointment. For further information, please call (203) 318-0616, email us at [susanpowellfineart@gmail.com](http://gmail.com) and visit [www.susanpowellfineart.](http://www.susanpowellfineart)[com](http://www.susanpowellfineart.com/) to see works in the show.

David Dunlop’s solo show Light Fantastic offers a visually transformative experience in this exciting exhibition of 27 new and adventurous works. Dunlop is a master of luminosity. His use of multi-layered translucent glazes, reflective metal surfaces and bright underpainting result in paintings that appear to possess their own inner light. He paints on copper, galvanized steel, and brushed gold and silver laminated aluminum which give his work the radiance of Dutch and Italian Renaissance paintings. Historically, artists have quested for luminance, and like Dunlop, wanted their works to glow in their settings, whether it be daylight or candlelight. David is also well known for his lively and entertaining PBS series, Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop. We are honored to present these newest works from this versatile and award-winning artist. The Gallery is located at 679 Boston Post Road, Madison, CT. Gallery hours are Tues-Sat, 11am-5pm, and by appointment. For further information, please call (203) 318-0616, email us at [susanpowellfineart@gmail.com](http://gmail.com) and visit [www.susanpowellfineart.](http://www.susanpowellfineart)[com](http://www.susanpowellfineart.com/) to see works in the show.

Gravity grounds us in the world. But what happens when art invites us to imagine otherwise? Since the early 20th century, numerous artists have harnessed and subverted gravitational force—dropping, dripping, and pouring to produce their work. Though deceptively simple, this act—of releasing materials in the air—is in fact a dynamic creative gesture. The artworks it yields have the potential to imaginatively upend our bearings, reconfiguring our sense of place in both embodied and metaphoric ways. Join Miriam Ashkin Stanton, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman–Joan Whitney Payson Fellow, Academic Affairs and Outreach, for a discussion of these ever-shifting coordinates in works by artists such as Helen Frankenthaler and Jackson Pollock.

Creator and performer Adil Mansoor brings us on his deeply personal journey to translate and adapt the play _Antigone_ with his Ammi (his mother). Despite the deep love between them, their relationship is strained – Ammi struggles to accept Adil’s queerness and turns towards her faith in an attempt to save her son in the afterlife. Adil turns to an ancient Greek theatrical text to break the silence between them. _Amm(i)gone_ asks: How do you choose between love and faith? What is lost (or gained) in translation, and what transcends language itself? Through Greek tragedy, teachings from the Quran, and audio conversations in Urdu and English, Mansoor creates a theatrical blend of lecture and personal story about locating love across faith.

The Kevin Saint James Band is a collective of professional New Haven area Jazz musicians brought together in collaboration with veteran saloon-singer Kevin Saint James. The band revisits, re-interprets and recreates true-to-form selections of classic jazz favorites and popular standards in a variety of artistic styles with a rare balance of musically "scientific" re-invention and profound reverence for historic significance and tradition. The band has a genuinely unique capacity for working spontaneous experimentation into their respectful reinterpretations of familiar popular standards that transport more mature audiences back in time to the sounds of days long ago, while recreating, re-introducing and perhaps even endearing these precious melodies to younger listeners at the same time.

Etching has been used in printmaking for centuries by artists such as Goya, Rembrandt, and Picasso. It is created by applying various resists to a metal plate that when worked through and exposed to acid, creates grooves in the surface that hold ink. The inked plate is then run through a printmaking press, and the image is transferred to paper. Because the plate design is permanent, multiple images can be created.

Students will learn techniques for drawing into both hard and soft ground as well as a Sharpie resist. The instructor will provide demos each week and assist new students in creating prints.

Includes one 3-hour practice session per week during monitored practice hours.

Tuition for this class includes a fee of $20 for basic materials provided by CAW.

David Birney’s entertaining adaptation is the portrait of two very unusual people, those first lovers who met under rather complicated circumstances and found a way to build a life together. Written through the eyes of America’s greatest humorist, Mark Twain’s story set within the Garden of Eden bursts with wit, laughter, and the lyric poignance of the first love and the first loss, taking audiences on a delightful journey of self-discovery and exploration. _Mark Twain's The Diaries of Adam and Eve_ plays at Legacy Theatre May 30-June 16, Thursdays-Sundays. Tickets are on sale now at or through the Box Office at (203) 315-1901. _Mark Twain's The Diaries of Adam and Eve_ is sponsored by Branford Coworking and WSHU Public Radio, and Legacy Theatre's 2024 Mainstage Season is sponsored by Atlas Healthcare.

David Dunlop’s solo show Light Fantastic offers a visually transformative experience in this exciting exhibition of 27 new and adventurous works. Dunlop is a master of luminosity. His use of multi-layered translucent glazes, reflective metal surfaces and bright underpainting result in paintings that appear to possess their own inner light. He paints on copper, galvanized steel, and brushed gold and silver laminated aluminum which give his work the radiance of Dutch and Italian Renaissance paintings. Historically, artists have quested for luminance, and like Dunlop, wanted their works to glow in their settings, whether it be daylight or candlelight. David is also well known for his lively and entertaining PBS series, Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop. We are honored to present these newest works from this versatile and award-winning artist. The Gallery is located at 679 Boston Post Road, Madison, CT. Gallery hours are Tues-Sat, 11am-5pm, and by appointment. For further information, please call (203) 318-0616, email us at [susanpowellfineart@gmail.com](http://gmail.com) and visit [www.susanpowellfineart.](http://www.susanpowellfineart)[com](http://www.susanpowellfineart.com/) to see works in the show.

Creator and performer Adil Mansoor brings us on his deeply personal journey to translate and adapt the play _Antigone_ with his Ammi (his mother). Despite the deep love between them, their relationship is strained – Ammi struggles to accept Adil’s queerness and turns towards her faith in an attempt to save her son in the afterlife. Adil turns to an ancient Greek theatrical text to break the silence between them. _Amm(i)gone_ asks: How do you choose between love and faith? What is lost (or gained) in translation, and what transcends language itself? Through Greek tragedy, teachings from the Quran, and audio conversations in Urdu and English, Mansoor creates a theatrical blend of lecture and personal story about locating love across faith.

Madison Lyric Stage, a professional non-profit theater company, will present Richard Strauss’ electrifying musical masterpiece, _Elektra, _June 7-9.  While this opera originally premiered in 1909, this is the very first time it has ever been presented in the state of Connecticut. Inspired by the Greek tragedy by Sophocles, Elektra has just witnessed the murder of her father Agamemnon, the king, by her own mother. Now that she knows her mother’s hands are bloody, the tormented Elektra is hellbent on vengeance – but when her brother returns from exile to carry out her wishes, Elektra’s obsession for revenge pushes her fractured family to the brink of destruction.  _Elektra _is 100 minutes of action-packed, “fasten your seatbelt” opera, from its dramatic, harrowing music to its hair-raising finale. _“Elektra_ is one of the most frequently performed operas based on classical Greek mythology, yet strangely enough has never been performed in Connecticut,” said Marc Deaton, artistic director of Madison Lyric Stage.  “Prepare to be spellbound, as we bring you this unforgettable journey into a haunted world of passion, revenge and murder.”  Mary McCue stars as the title character, with Allison Waggener as her sister Chrysothemis, Amy Maude Helfer as her mother Klytëmnestra, Daniel Hague as her brother Orest, and Marc Deaton as Klytëmnestra’s lover Aegist.  Deaton also directs, with Nathaniel Baker as musical director. Tickets are $55 and are available at madisonlyricstage.org.  Performance times are Friday and Saturday at 7:00 pm and Sunday at 4:00 pm at the historic Deacon John Grave House, located at 581 Boston Post Road in Madison. Elektra will be sung in its original German, with English supertitles.

Alex Newell made history with their recent Tony Award win for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for their role in “Shucked.” This hit musical has received glowing reviews and praise with Newell’s performance of the song “Independently Owned” being called a showstopper. Newell, who identifies both as nonbinary and gender fluid, is the first out nonbinary actor to win a Tony Award for a performance. Newell’s performances have also granted them the Drama Desk Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Featured Performer in a Broadway Musical. Prior to this, Newell starred as the God ‘Asaka’ (female role) in the Broadway revival of “Once On This Island” which earned Newell a Grammy nomination for Best Musical Theater Album.

David Birney’s entertaining adaptation is the portrait of two very unusual people, those first lovers who met under rather complicated circumstances and found a way to build a life together. Written through the eyes of America’s greatest humorist, Mark Twain’s story set within the Garden of Eden bursts with wit, laughter, and the lyric poignance of the first love and the first loss, taking audiences on a delightful journey of self-discovery and exploration. _Mark Twain's The Diaries of Adam and Eve_ plays at Legacy Theatre May 30-June 16, Thursdays-Sundays. Tickets are on sale now at or through the Box Office at (203) 315-1901. _Mark Twain's The Diaries of Adam and Eve_ is sponsored by Branford Coworking and WSHU Public Radio, and Legacy Theatre's 2024 Mainstage Season is sponsored by Atlas Healthcare.

Although Will may be known mostly in the worlds of Jazz and Jam bands with his associations with musicians like John Medeski, Charlie Hunter, Stanton Moore and others, Pond Life is Will’s continuing project in which he explores his “Creative music” or “new Music” side. Will has long been writing more introspective music and in fact holds a music degree in the classical music from UC Berkeley during a time when he was immersed in 20th century composition and studied with the likes of Andrew Imbrie and Alloudin Mathieu. Pond Life has no set rules and contains free improvisation with through-composed pieces. Although currently a New Yorker, guitarist Will Bernard's unique voice was formed fro the most part from the rich cultural roots of the San Francisco Bay Area. Along the way he studied classical music, jazz, played in basements and coliseums, and absorbed the Bay Area Multi-Kultii, the New York downtown edge, and the loose funk of New Orleans. He has performed or recorded with Charlie Hunter, Stanton Moore, Robert Walter, John Medeski, Dr Lonnie Smith, Ben Sidran, Peter Apfelbaum, Jai Uttal, Tom Waits, Bill Laswell, Dr. John and a lot of other known and unknowns. Will can be seen working in a chameleon-like way to fit into his current habitat. His 2007 CD "Party Hats" as well as his 1997 collaborative project T.J. Kirk's If Four Was One were both nominated for Grammys, and he is nominated yearly in Downbeat Magazine's Critics Poll for "Best Rising Star" Guitar Player. Will is a regular fixture at New Orleans Jazz fest, Jam Cruise and other similar events, and has toured extensively in the US and Europe. Currently, Will performs with John Medeski's Mad Skillet, Peter Apfelbaum's Sparkler, Frequinox with Stanton Moore and Robert Walter, Club D’Elf, Brian Charette's Mighty Grinders, Club Foot Orchestra, TJ Kirk spinoff Damn Skippy and the Will Bernard ’s Freelance Subversives and Pond Life. Will’s 11th record as a leader was released in 2022 on Dreck to Disk records and was on many best of 2022 lists. In 2023 Will released a duo record with SF clarinetist Beth Custer.

Creator and performer Adil Mansoor brings us on his deeply personal journey to translate and adapt the play _Antigone_ with his Ammi (his mother). Despite the deep love between them, their relationship is strained – Ammi struggles to accept Adil’s queerness and turns towards her faith in an attempt to save her son in the afterlife. Adil turns to an ancient Greek theatrical text to break the silence between them. _Amm(i)gone_ asks: How do you choose between love and faith? What is lost (or gained) in translation, and what transcends language itself? Through Greek tragedy, teachings from the Quran, and audio conversations in Urdu and English, Mansoor creates a theatrical blend of lecture and personal story about locating love across faith.

Madison Lyric Stage, a professional non-profit theater company, will present Richard Strauss’ electrifying musical masterpiece, _Elektra, _June 7-9.  While this opera originally premiered in 1909, this is the very first time it has ever been presented in the state of Connecticut. Inspired by the Greek tragedy by Sophocles, Elektra has just witnessed the murder of her father Agamemnon, the king, by her own mother. Now that she knows her mother’s hands are bloody, the tormented Elektra is hellbent on vengeance – but when her brother returns from exile to carry out her wishes, Elektra’s obsession for revenge pushes her fractured family to the brink of destruction.  _Elektra _is 100 minutes of action-packed, “fasten your seatbelt” opera, from its dramatic, harrowing music to its hair-raising finale. _“Elektra_ is one of the most frequently performed operas based on classical Greek mythology, yet strangely enough has never been performed in Connecticut,” said Marc Deaton, artistic director of Madison Lyric Stage.  “Prepare to be spellbound, as we bring you this unforgettable journey into a haunted world of passion, revenge and murder.”  Mary McCue stars as the title character, with Allison Waggener as her sister Chrysothemis, Amy Maude Helfer as her mother Klytëmnestra, Daniel Hague as her brother Orest, and Marc Deaton as Klytëmnestra’s lover Aegist.  Deaton also directs, with Nathaniel Baker as musical director. Tickets are $55 and are available at madisonlyricstage.org.  Performance times are Friday and Saturday at 7:00 pm and Sunday at 4:00 pm at the historic Deacon John Grave House, located at 581 Boston Post Road in Madison. Elektra will be sung in its original German, with English supertitles.

In the early 1800s, when the prevailing belief was that the earth was 6,000 years old and had been shaped by Noah’s flood, James Gates Percival showed that the traprock in the Connecticut valley was volcanic and far older. Author Kathleen Housley will present “Poet James Percival and the Geology of New England,” at the Pardee-Morris House on Sunday, June 9, 2024, at 2 p.m. For weather updates check FB/IG or call 203-562-4183. Free registration[ here.](https://www.simpletix.com/e/poet-james-percival-and-the-geology-of-new-tickets-164826) Based on her book, “Stone Breaker: The Poet James Gates Percival and the Beginning of Geology in New England,” Housley’s lecture will offer an accessible biography of Percival, a true American polymath. Exploring the confluences of literature, art, and geology, she will reveal how one of most famous poets of the 1820’s became a renowned geologist with his groundbreaking “Report on the Geology of the State of Connecticut,” published in 1843. The presentation will include historic photographs and paintings of the Connecticut landscape. A poet, linguist, and unstable savant, Percival was also a brilliant geologist who walked thousands of miles across Connecticut and Wisconsin to lay the foundation for generations of earth scientists.
