We are optimistically listing a few things to do this weekend just in case everything doesn't close because of our latest snow storm! Good luck out there.
Friday through Feb. 22
543 Columbia Rd., Dorchester
Fiddlehead Theater Company presents this alternate telling of “The Wizard of Oz”, which first hit Broadway in 1975. It featured a series of funky original songs that laid down a very different vibe from the 1939 film, and restored elements from L. Frank Baum’s book that had been missing or altered, like the monstrous Kalidahs and the silver (not ruby) shoes.
Amore: Valentine Opera Concert
Friday, 7 p.m.
Old North Church
193 Salem St., Boston
The North End Music and Performing Arts Center present their 4th annual Valentine’s concert, with a program crafted to encompass the highs and lows of love, including music from Monteverdi, Strauss, Puccini and Rodgers and Hammerstein, all in the perfectly romantic setting of the Old North Church. Note: the admission price listed above is a suggested donation.
Friday, 7:30 and 10 p.m.
The Wilbur Theater
246 Tremont St., Boston
Comedian/storyteller Mike Birbiglia returns to Boston with more of his hilariously awkward true tales. In an age of social anxiety, when we’re constantly worried about our bosses seeing our Facebook party pics or accidentally texting the wrong person with something terribly personal, comics like Birbiglia remind us life is already sort of embarrassing to begin with. And you thought it was just you!
Channel/Dance: An Evening of Music, Art and Theater
Friday and Saturday
290 Congress St., Boston
Fort Point Theater Channel and Contrapose Dance present this concert, featuring the work of ten local choreographers collaborating with artists in other disciplines, such as music, photography, drama and more. The results include several short movement pieces and six so-called “movement-themed plays.” Note: the show is free, but you can reserve a seat at the address above.
Larry C. Volk/Jill Weber
Through March 1
450 Harrison Ave., Boston
Larry C. Volk’s side of Bromfield Gallery this month is a video piece entitled “The 4 Questions”, and explores his mother’s experience as a Holocaust survivor through the tradition of the Passover seder. Jill Weber presents a set of paintings that turn architectural forms on their head with pleasurably brain-altering effects, showing how used we get to seeing certain forms in certain ways.
