Greetings! Have you recovered from the election? There was something for everyone to be happy about and I am just glad that everyone everywhere will stop telling everyone else to vote. Even Sweetgreen sent me an email to vote. I get it and I am very happy there was such engagement for a mid term but I can’t say I am sad it is over. How do we celebrate?
Tonight, to celebrate all the new women taking their place in the House, I suggest SCENA Theatre company’s all-woman take on the Oscar Wilde classic A Woman of No Importance at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. Set in a 1930s Hollywood, the show takes feminist take on that backstabbing world. Tickets are $15-$45.
