  1. RED HERRING: The Little Theatre of Norfolk

    January 18 - January 20 @ The Little Theatre of Norfolk

    Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. It's 1952: America's on the verge of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower's on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy's on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy's daughter just got engaged to a Soviet Spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor - or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. A blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot. Red Herring is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

  6. Offsite Gallery opening reception: Dottie Holmes & Mark Pehanich

    January 25, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Offsite Gallery, World Trade Center

    Abstract painters Dolly Holmes and Mark Pehanich have had an ongoing dialog as artists for more than 25 years. Using "line, shape and color to illustrate the intuitive...The pairing makes visual sense: Holmes' uncluttered expanses and Pehanich's carefully considered simplicities complement each other in a push and pull rooted in primitivism and abstract expressionism. Both artists convey a vibrant tranquility that's devoid of complication or distraction. By giving their paintings room to breathe, the elemental approach frees the viewer from the demands of literal interpretation." Style Weekly, February 12, 2016.
