Capitol Steps--Thursday, 11/06/2014 - 8:00pm. Clark Construction Comedy Series. The much loved Capitol Steps put the MOCK in Democracy. The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Their original idea was to put on a nativity play, but in all of Congress they couldn't find three wise men... or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day creating song parodies and skits to convey their special brand of satirical humor. Ticket Price $55.

Thomaston Opera House - Crimes of the Heart

11/06/2014 to 11/14/2014

158 Main St., Thomaston, CT 06787. Phone: (860) 283-8250.

The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.
