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).

KQV/Trib Total Media Listener Poll Do you think the Animal Rescue League is over reacting to the Michael Vick signing or are they justified in moving their fundraiser and rejecting Steeler donations? <More Info>
The Animal Rescue League is protesting the signing of 35-year old veteran NFL quarterback Michael Vick to a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers by moving its major fundraiser from Heinz Field. They object to Vick because he was spent 21 months in a federal prison for funding and participating in a dogfighting ring. They also said they will no longer include any Steelers-related merchandise or memorabilia in their event's auction or at any other fundraisers.
