The Importance of Being Earnest

I recently invited my mom on a mother-daughter date to see Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. While I have read this play before, like I’m sure most honors literature classes have, when I looked online to see the running time for the performance I was shocked to see that the average length was around three hours. I

Bella

Last Friday I was fortunate enough to be able to spend a little bit of time with my 15-year old niece. Getting time with any teenager is tough in this world of technology! I picked her up at 9 a.m., told her to turn off the phone and we headed to see a play at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival in Lehigh Valley. Each year I try to see at least one adult and one kid’s production. This year it just happened to be Beauty and the Beast. I have never seen the movie, so I knew I was going to be in for a real treat.

With each kid’s show, there is always a twist to the story so that the cast can make it their own. This one started off with storyteller and enchantress, Florabunda and the hysterical Grampaw Gus telling the story of Henry Beaumont and his beautiful daughter Belinda Bell. Here’s the short version …

By Tracey Werner

Ok. I’ll admit it. I have never seen an Alfred Hitchcock movie. So when I decided to see the play version of “The 39 Steps” at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival on Thursday’s preview night, I had no idea what to expect. All I knew from reading the description on the web site was that the cast consisted of only four actors who would be playing all of the roles and I honestly wondered how they were going to pull that off.

Oklahoma!

When it comes to entertainment, I’m more of a sci-fi or action-adventure kind of girl. When it comes to enjoying life, if you have a new thing for me to try, chances are I won’t turn you down. Last night, at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival hosted by DeSales University, I had the chance to see a preview performance of Oklahoma!, the first musical written by the dynamic duo, Rodgers and Hammerstein.

WHAT IF: Summer Olympics 2024

It seems that Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have been sent letters by the U.S. Olympic Committee to gauge interest in hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics.

Aside from any boost Lehigh Valley may get in overflow from a Philadelphia games, what if Lehigh Valley pulled the upset and won the bid for the games outright?

Lollipop: Gutai Influences

Three of the women, adorned in dresses made out of newspaper, entered Little Apple Market on N. 7th Street in Allentown. They made their way through the turnstile just inside the door, careful not to rip their newsprint and spotted a rack of coupon pamphlets. They stopped and noticed the paper coupon booklets were pretty much the same material as their dresses. So, they stopped, giggled, looked at each other and took a few copies. You know, in case they needed an emergency hem.

The artists are just a few of 25 Japanese artists taking up residency in Allentown from February 10 to March 2 as part of the international art exchange entitled “Lollipop: Gutai Influences.” The event is being coordinated by the great people at Fuse Art Infrastructure.
