    'MeshugaNutcracker!' At Cinemark

    Hanukkah and Christmas are linked forever for both being festival holidays happening in December. So it’s only natural that Jewish artists would someday co-opt a classic Christmas celebration to tell their own story. “The MeshugaNutcracker! A Chanukah Musical” adapts Tchaikovsky’s traditional “Nutcracker”...

      • Rockapella Coming To Infinity Hall Hartford

        Rockapella Coming To Infinity Hall Hartford

        Rockapella is a long-running vocal group that mixes, as you might imagine, a little sweet-voice a cappella styling with boy-band emotion and big gestures, plus some pop and light comedy. The group’s thing is almost tailor-made for feel-good holiday shows. The group took shape in the ‘80s when some...

      • A Deep, Resonant 'Color Purple' At The Bushnell

        A Deep, Resonant 'Color Purple' At The Bushnell

        The Bushnell wears “Purple” well. The 2005 musical version of “The Color Purple” did an exceptional job of distilling a beloved book into a smooth, lively, emotional drama.

        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...
