The Rainbow Chorale's As Seen on TV! showcase on Friday, March 27, was an entertaining romp through a range of favorite television theme songs and other classic TV moments...

Despite rumors to the contrary, modern classical music can be melodic and fun. The lucky audience at Mélomanie’s concert on Sunday at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts got to hear two such works along with some fine representatives of the Baroque and pre-Classical periods.

I clutched my pearls at the beginning scenes of Wilmington Drama League’s performance of Lips Together, Teeth Apart (LTTA). The actors spewed uncomfortable words. The diverse audience did not know how to react at such horrific words. Most wanted to laugh but saw that we had neighbors that might not find the humor in it.

The Delaware Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Music Director David Amado, presented works by three such composers Friday, March 13, at the Laird Performing Arts Center at Tatnall School.

Expectations and assumptions were not just what I found, as I rushed down to Wilmington Drama League to catch “Searching for Self,” performed by Pieces of a Dream modern dance company.

I LOVE Tracy Letts! He’s a masterful playwright who’s biting humor peeks through the dark depths of his plays. His psychological thriller, Bug is quite an experience. The play is an engrossing piece of theater -- questioning how far someone will believe in another person’s distorted reality, because of the need to connect with another human. 

The Delaware Historical Society is hosting the Forging Faith, Building Freedom book launch on February 28th from 2-4pm. The book was written by Constance J. Cooper and Lewis V. Baldwin. Forging Faith, Building Freedom started as an online exhibition, that is still currently accessible, but has progressed into published form, with their Forging Faith book including information not available on their website.

If you haven’t seen the production NORA at Delaware Theater Company on the Wilmington Riverfront it is time to check it out! The play continues through February 22nd so there still is a short window to check it out. Don’t delay, purchase your tickets here.
