      • Tunisian Drama 'Hedi' At Wadsworth Atheneum

        Tunisian Drama 'Hedi' At Wadsworth Atheneum

        The conflict between doing what is expected of you and following your dreams is a classic cinema plot. The film showing at Wadsworth Atheneum tells this story, from a contemporary Tunisian perspective. "Hedi" tells the story of a man who is being set up in an arranged marriage to a woman as unenthusiastic...

        • 'Angels In America' In Area Theaters

          'Angels In America' In Area Theaters

          "Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia On National Themes" was a critical darling when it premiered in 1991. Tony Kushner's two-part symbolic fantasy tells the stories of several gay men, both out and closeted, as they deal with AIDS and homophobia in 1980s America. The play won a Tony, a Pulitzer...

          • Big Mean Sound Machine At Arch Street Tavern

            Big Mean Sound Machine At Arch Street Tavern

            Any time you get nine talented musicians playing together, you're approaching a critical mass at which, if the sound and energy gets harnessed, powerful things can happen, just in terms of volume, texture, moving parts and layers. Big Mean Sound Machine is a big, mean band. Their horn-heavy and...

          • Moose Blood At Ballroom At The Outer Space

            Moose Blood At Ballroom At The Outer Space

            Moose Blood's 2016 record "Blush," has 10 one-word song titles, some of which sound like color-swatch names from a twisted clothing catalog: "Pastel," "Honey," "Sulk," "Sway." There's a pink theme to the new record, its second full-length. The band plays a kind of compressed, muscular pop-punk-ish,...

          • The New Pornographers At College Street Music Hall

            The New Pornographers At College Street Music Hall

            The New Pornographers are kind of a Canadian indie-rock supergroup, a rotating collective of singers, players and songwriters. They've been making music now for 20 years. (Their new record is called "Whiteout Conditions," which may suggest a particularly Canadian familiarity with lake-effect snow.)...

            Saratoga Springs Offers Victorian Architecture, 'Health, History, Horses'

            If you think wellness vacations are a new phenomenon, a trip to Saratoga Springs will prove you wrong. Travelers have been heading to the charming city in upstate New York for more than 200 years, drawn by the purported healing powers of the area's mineral springs. In the mid-1800s, Saratoga was...

          • Portsmouth: Where Naval History, Charm Converge

            Portsmouth: Where Naval History, Charm Converge

            Portsmouth, N.H., is the kind of place that if you've already been, you likely want to go back. And if you haven't, then you need to go. With roots predating the Revolutionary War by more than a hundred years, the seacoast city, an hour's ride north of Boston, is a heady mix of culture, charm and...

            Newport Church Where Kennedys Married Opening To Public

            PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The church where John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier wed is inviting visitors in to kneel where the couple knelt, listen to the music that played and imagine the day. St. Mary's Church, in Newport, Rhode Island, was the site of the wedding on Sept. 12, 1953, when Kennedy was...
