Don't miss A Christmas Carol at Civic Theatre.

It seems hard to believe that A Christmas Carol is in its 27th year of being directed at Civic Theatre in Allentown. The show has evolved over the years, most notably on the number of actors, from a mere 31 when it started in 1989 to over 100 in today’s production.

Explore the Southside arts culture on First Friday.

Post contributed by Erika Liodice.

On the first Friday night of every month, the shops, restaurants, and art galleries of South Bethlehem open their doors and welcome passersby to step inside and discover something new. They do this in celebration of First Friday, a community tradition I’ve known about for years but have never managed to attend. So when a friend suggested we check it out, I decided that last Friday would be my first First Friday.

X Ambassadors perform at the Sands Steel Stage during Musikfest 2016.

Excitement and anticipation lit up the air on the opening night of Musikfest. Opening the show were piano rockers Jukebox the Ghost, who played a free concert at the Levitt Pavilion at Steelstacks earlier in the summer months. Rachel Platten performed a heartfelt performance talking about the struggles of show business in her own life. The crowd was invigorated by her popular songs  “Fight Song” and “Stand by You.”

Nighttime fell and X Ambassadors took the stage with an incendiary presence. The soul funk band hailing from Ithaca, NY provided the perfect set to kick off ten days of Musikfest fun. Multi-talented lead singer Sam Harris kept the audience engaged from start to finish. The most commanding moment may have been before the hit song “Renegades.” Harris provoked the audience to think about unity and making a positive change in the world.

Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, a high-spirited comedy at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, will be wowing crowds through August 7.

The show begins with a married couple, Charles and Ruth who were both previously widowed, getting ready for a dinner party. They’ve invited a special guest, Madame Arcati, to their home in hopes of gathering material for Charles’s latest novel. She is an odd woman who is known to be a medium who connects humans with spirits from the afterlife. Unfortunately for Charles, his life is about to change when the ghost of his first wife, Elvira, comes back to haunt him when Madame Arcati’s séance succeeds.

I’m not ashamed to admit I’m a lightweight when it comes to Shakespeare, preferring his comedies over his more dramatic works. That’s why I chose to see The Taming of the Shrew as part of the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival (PSF) 2016 season at DeSales University.

The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival celebrates its 25th season.

As the string quartet finishes on the greens, I take the last sip of my wine; it is a beautiful evening here in Center Valley, PA.  Like so many others, we are here for the opening night of Julius Caesar for the 25th season at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

Energy is high as we enter the small, intimate Schubert Theatre. The theater is beautiful with only 187 seats, making no bad seat in the house.  As the director, Patriuck Mulcahy, exits the stage after his welcome remarks, the audience becomes anxious. The tale begins and you immediately step into the streets of Rome cheering on glorious Caesar as he is paraded around over his victory.
