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.
According to Pew Research, most Americans believe crime rates are rising and gun ownership - not gun control - makes people safer. Over the past 25 years or so, there has been a divergence between American perceptions about crime and actual crime rate holding near 20-year lows. Those who worried about crime had favored stricter gun control; now, they tend to desire keeping the laws as they are or loosening gun control.
