THE WEEKENDER: Hot Fun for a Cool Weekend!
Welcome to The Weekender, our sneak peek at some of the highlights from a busy weekend. It’s going to be a bit cooler this weekend, so I only have one outdoor event, but there are lots of indoor events to check out.
But, these are just the editor’s picks. What do you think is a “can’t miss” event? Let us know, with as much advance warning as possible, and you might find it on the next episode of The Weekender!

This clever reimagining of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, adapted for the stage by Kate Hamill, will have audiences falling in love with the March sisters all over again. Set during the Civil War, the play follows Jo and her three unforgettably distinct sisters, Meg, Beth, and Amy, as they navigate a war-torn world defined by gender, class, and circumstance. Yearning for a future beyond what society expects them to be, they discover what it means to stay true to themselves as they grow from young girls to little women.

Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof's universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
