"A Little Night Music" at SummerFest 2013
Opera Theater SummerFest presents an international classic by American master composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim with some of musical theater’s favorite songs and scenes. “Send in the Clowns”, “Every Day a Little Death” and “A Weekend in the Country” are among the numbers woven into the musical version of “Smiles of a Summer Night”, Ingmar Bergman’s story of lovers whose affairs converge during a visit to a country estate. Fully staged, “A Little Night Music” is directed by Scott Wise and accompanied by the SummerFest Orchestra, conducted by Walter Morales. SummerFest presents this Sondheim treasure Sun., July 7 at 2:30 pm at the Twentieth Century Club, 4210 Bigelow Blvd., in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Oakland (15213). Patrons are also invited to a Liebeslieder Waltzes during brunch at 1:00 pm and a Piano Bar at 4:30 pm. Tickets and information at: www.otsummerfest.org or call 412-326-9687.
Former Arizona Democrat Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is urging congressional Republicans to "have some courage" and hold town halls, after Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert referenced her and 24 others being shot at a constituent meeting in 2011 as his explanation for not having one. Gohmert, contends leftist groups, some with violent strains, are preying on public meetings wreaking havoc and threatening public safety. Giffords scoffed at the notion stating Congress has a civic obligation to represent and listen to concerned citizens by holding town halls.
