Memphis Jewish Community Center, 6560 Poplar
Through Feb. 28
Deliman in just one of the films you might see at this festival of Jewish cinema which kicked off on Tuesday with the film, Dough. I'm starting to see a trend here but rest assured there are other films of varied subject matter. Check out their website for the schedule. And while you are at the Center, might as well check out "Tennessee Craft: Southwest Show" located in the Shainberg Gallery. You might just find the perfect tchotchke.
The Halloran Centre, 225 S. Main
Fri., Feb. 19, 7-8:15 p.m.
After attending the Robin Spielberg concert last week, I couldn't wait for the next event at the Halloran Centre so that I could temp you to go see the new performance space. Fortunately for you, the next event is Dr. Kaboom. You are going to have an electrifying good time.
Hattiloo Theatre, 37 S. Cooper
Sat., Feb. 20, 7 p.m.
Maybe you've heard that Hattiloo has been so successful since moving to Overton Square, expansion is again necessary. Seems like my belt was telling me that just the other day. But unlike needing a new wardrobe, when it comes to entertaining Memphis, the fine folks at Hattiloo have put together an special night for you with the opportunity to help fund the expansion. This special night will include food, music, cocktails, and snippits from The Wiz. Ease on down the road for fun and community theatre.
The Dixon Gallery & Gardens, 4339 Park
When: Sat., Feb. 20, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Pull out your bell bottom jeans, load the VW van, and be transported to 1976 when Dixon Gallery and Gardens first started entertaining Memphis with wonderful art and gardens. Create groovy art, enjoy far-out music, rad activities, and explore exhibitions. Be there or be square.
Playhouse on the Square, 66 S. Cooper
Fri., Feb. 19, 8 p.m., Sat., Feb. 20, 2 & 8 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 21, 2 p.m.
These new works by Jennifer Archibald, Joshua Peugh, and Gabrielle Lamb celebrate place. Your place, my place, our place—and Playhouse on the Square will be the place to be for these performances. One of the works is set entirely to Stax music. That's a good place. Should you go on Friday, arrive around 6:30 p.m. and you will have the opportunity to speak with these innovative choreographers. Something that might be a fun addition to the weekend if you are celebrating your place, is “Memphis: Art and Place.” This is a three day event as part of the Communities in Conversation program from Rhodes College. Check out what's going on here.
