    Karla Knight's 'Spaceship Drawings' At EBK In Hartford

    Karla Knight’s pencil-on-paper drawings, which she calls “spaceships,” look like schematic diagrams scattered with letters not from any human alphabet but from an alphabet beyond Earthly understanding. Knight, of Redding, wants them to stay beyond our understanding. “People ask me if there is a...

        NBMAA Exhibit Highlights New Britain's Industrial History

        Paul Baylock grew up in New Britain and walked past the factories daily. “They were like cathedrals,” he said. “Workers would coat the windows with material that was reflective so the heat wouldn’t come in or to reduce the light. You could see the color blue or red come out. It had the quality...

                G-Thang To Play Funny Bone; Tim Dillon Coming To Comix

                Gary “G-Thang Johnson” has an intriguing name, an intriguing film resume (“Moneyball” and “Disaster Movie”), and last year he starred in the TV series “Grown Folks.” He does his stand-up June 28 through July 1 at the Funny Bone club, 194 Buckland Hills Drive, Manchester.

                Goodspeed To Stage Dickens' Tale Of Downtrodden 'Oliver Twist'

                ‘Please sir, I want some more.” That’s the phrase that sets “Oliver Twist” in motion.

                A Highly Entertaining, Energetic 'In the Heights' At Playhouse On Park

                They share the same initials, but West Hartford ain’t Washington Heights. I nonetheless expected Playhouse on Park would have a special feel for “In the Heights,” Lin-Manuel Miranda’s 2008 musical about the vibrant, diverse neighborhood near where he grew up in New York City. Playhouse on Park...

                When It's All About The Hotel, Not The Destination

                For many travelers, hotels are nothing more than a generic place to sleep and store their luggage while they spend their days exploring exotic locales. In some cases, however, the accommodations steal the show. From doing jail time to sleeping in a treehouse, these unique hotels and inns from New...

                Why Delray? A Beautiful Beach And A Bustling Avenue

                In the 1980s Delray Beach was sadly saddled with the nickname “Dullray Beach,” reflective of a reputation as a dowdy, rundown Palm Beach County ocean side Florida town full of vacant buildings, high crime, racial tension, dysfunctional politics and a crumbling infrastructure.
