High 5: Music, Comedy, Dogs & Wine

[NECNMIGR] 724374.jpg

We are winding down the week and people are thinking about their weekend plans. Check out the "High Five" spots to be this weekend provided by our friends at Shindy.TV.

NUMBER 1

  • Event Date/Time:  Thursday — Saturday, 8 p.m.; Sunday, 7 p.m.
  • Event Name: Stone Soup Theatre presents "The Cradle Will Rock"
  • Event Location: 10th Avenue Theatre, 930 10th Avenue. Downtown
  • Event URL:  www.stonesouptheatre.net

Event Description:

A Play in Music by Marc Blitzstein — Corruption, greed and deception pervade the American economy…in 1937.

In this “play in music,” Corporate America has gotten out of hand and we are all suffering the economic fallout. This isn’t the plot of a new musical reflecting the world we face, but the revolutionary musical about the state of the economy in 1937.

Who would have thought that a provocative musical written during the Great Depression as a part of the Federal Theatre Project could still be relevant 70 years later?

Can’t afford a ticket? No problem! Show up at the theatre and Pay-What-You-Can! All unsold seats the night of performance are available at whatever price you can afford. Just show up and give what you can afford.
