  • 'Sound Of Music' At Palace Theater

    'Sound Of Music' At Palace Theater

    Connecticut has a special ear for "The Sound of Music." The classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical — about a nun/nanny, the adorable kids she cares for and the gruff captain with a heart, all running from the Nazis — had its premiere at the Shubert in New Haven in 1959. The show hasn't had a Broadway...

      A Week Of Dance: Riverdance, Urban Bush, BODYTRAFFIC

      The title "Riverdance — 20th Anniversary Tour" is getting a little old. When it played The Bushnell last May, it was firmly in the zone, coming two decades and two months after the Irish dance spectacular's first U.S. performances in New York at Radio City Music Hall. Yes, the anniversary apparently...

          Impressionism Exhibits Focus On Lush Landscapes Of France

          Connecticut is the home of American Impressionism. At the turn of the 20th century, colonies sprouted up in Old Lyme, Cos Cob, Farmington, Kent and other places.

                Don't worry, you're not late to the ball. The national tour of "Cinderella" has already parked its pumpkin coach in Connecticut twice — just over a year ago at The Bushnell in Hartford and (after scaling down to a non-Equity production) in April at New Haven's Shubert. But those glass slippers...

                          A few years ago, Jamaica was seeing a roots reggae revival. After dancehall took hold in the '80s, reggae had receded a bit, becoming more of a tourist attraction than a vital current in Jamaican popular music, but that's changed, with a whole batch of artists, like Chronixx, who've returned a...

                          Twenty or 30 years ago, classical-leaning percussion ensembles had a more limited repertory to choose from. There was Lou Harrison, John Cage, Edgar Varese, Carlos Chavez and Steve Reich. Since then, particularly with the ascendance of the globally informed phase music that Reich made, percussion...

                          Rhiannon Giddens has an American story to tell. Her music is soaked in the past, and often about events gone by, but the singer has her eye on the future and what it can be.

                          NORWICH, VT — I hate winter. Thank you, but I'll pass on the slopes, rinks and trails. The lure of cocoa at a lodge can't compare to a pina colada on a Caribbean beach in February. So the thought of spending some time recently in central Vermont filled me with the dread of winter. I like Vermont,...

                          Don't give in to cabin fever.

When you go, bring plenty of warm clothes — and, if you're brave enough, your bathing suit, since some of the...
