The Abel Opera House, Sigal Bridal Gallery, and the Sigal Museum all have one very big thing in common: their location. The Abel Opera House and Sigal Bridal Gallery evolved to what is now the historic downtown Easton’s Sigal Museum. I say “evolved” as the museum still pays homage to these previous tenants in many ways through their exhibits. Opening in the summer of 2010, the Sigal Museum is a gem in the historic downtown, flying a bright red banner reading “History Here” on its exterior. The museum is a mere block from the Easton Farmers’ Market, and a must-see if you are in the area! There is something in this museum for everyone – adults and children alike.

The sign says it all.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel!

Grimm’s Fairy Tales have always been a favorite of mine. I’m not sure which tale I like the best, but having a son kind of kept me away from a new found favorite of mine, Rapunzel. I, along with my almost 15-year old step daughter-to-be, Lauren, went to see the production of Rapunzel at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival in Lehigh Valley recently. Lauren is very interested in acting so I thought if she could see firsthand what is expected of an actress, it might help her in her decision-making process of what she wants to be when she grows up.

Around the World in Lehigh Valley

By Laura Eppler

Around the World in 80 Days is a delightful journey of whimsy. The five incredibly talented cast members, who together played dozens of roles, seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves. And it showed. Between their physical antics, playful posing, and dancing, and their word play and hilarious mispronunciations, the show entertained non-stop.

The actors occasionally engaged members of the audience, who relished their moments in the spotlight and were pretty comical themselves.
