Next Stage Arts and Twilight Music present contemporary folk singer/songwriter John Gorka at Next Stage Arts on Sunday, March 19 at 7:30 pm.
John Gorka is perhaps the quintessential iconic singer/songwriter of the 1980’s folk scene. Hailing from New Jersey, he honed his craft and persona as a shy, wry and insightful singer/songwriter in the Greenwich Village “Fast Folk” and Boston music scenes. Gorka got his start at Godfrey Daniels, a neighborhood coffeehouse in eastern Pennsylvania which is one of the oldest and most venerable music institutions in the country.
On the eve of Purim . . .
Ex-Rockapella star Sean Altman’s unkosher comedy song concert
is "tuneful and sharply witty” (Los Angeles Times), “relentlessly clever” (Chicago Tribune) and “bawdy with a wicked modern streak” (Washington Post), with “hilarious pleasures” (The New Yorker) that combine “the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer” (Boston Globe) with a “silky tenor voice that produced chills” (New York Times).
Altman — one of “New York’s finest comedians” (New York Times) and “a terrific singer and a songwriter with an ear equally attuned to comic satire and the power of pop music” (The New Yorker) — “writes hilarious and irreverent acoustic rock songs about his awakening Jewish awareness” (Jerusalem Post) to make you “laugh your tuchis off” (Time Out) as “part of a new breed of Jewish hipster comedy that includes Jon Stewart, Sacha Baron Cohen and Sarah Silverman” (Philadelphia Daily News).

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. – Scissors will snip and curls will be clipped as the Battle of the Barbers heats up on Main Street Friday, March 3.
The tonsorial action will take place in the lobby of the Latchis Hotel beginning at 5 p.m. and features an appearance by Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and his nemesis, Signor Adolfo Pirelli.
These masters of the close shave will meet again in the Main Street Arts musical production of Sweeney Todd that opens Thursday, March 16 at the historic Bellows Falls Opera House for a two-weekend run.
“We wanted to have some fun while promoting our show,” said the show’s director, David Stern. “We will have real hair stylists on hand to do some speed cutting and maybe carving.”
Are you feeling frantic? Worn out by the nightly news? In need of encouragement? Don’t despair -- Purim is coming! March 11 at the Vermont Jazz Center, we’ll let loose, wear wild costumes and masks, vent our rage at evil and oppression by shaking our graggers (noisemakers) at the name of Haman (or any other evil government official you’d like), and retell the story of how one brave undercover Jewish woman saved the whole Jewish people.

When I was a kid there was a game called ‘Barrel of Monkeys’. It consisted of a plastic cup filled with a bunch of little multicolored simians with limbs that interlocked. The object was to lift and hook arms forming a chain with as many as possible. At least that’s how I remember it. This recollection corresponds to an image that was once broadcast on the Daily Show, of Jon Stewart presenting his writer’s room. The shot was inside a racquetball court, behind a glass wall, the space stuffed with people, hipsters mostly, cheek to jowl, practically climbing over each other. Let these images serve as illustration and introduction of my point.
