Goodspeed Musicals Presents an Exclusive Preview: “Darling Grenadine”

Goodspeed Musicals Presents an Exclusive Preview of “Darling Grenadine,” a new musical from Daniel Zaitchik.

Meet fun-loving jingle composer Harry. In modern Manhattan, his charmed life with girlfriend Louise, brother Paul and beloved Labrador Retriever (also Paul!) sparkles with the fizz of romantic comedies and the whimsy of MGM musicals. But will it all go flat when reality interrupts Harry’s tenderly orchestrated fantasia?

A rich contemporary score explores the friction between romance and reality, bitter and sweet, high and low. Raise a glass to a musical serving something magical, moving and boldly new.

Book, Music and Lyrics by Daniel Zaitchik

For over 30 years, The Norma Terris Theatre has been Goodspeed’s home for developing fresh, innovative, and original new musicals that have then moved on to New York and other theatres. Because it is a developmental theatre, audience reaction and feedback can cause the show to change on a day-to-day basis. New scenes are added, songs are moved, costumes are changed, dialogue is tweaked.

Meet NHFPL Staff Member: Maria Tonelli

Maria Tonelli’s New Haven Free Public Library career spans several non-consecutive decades.  Maria worked here at the Library in the 1960s and 1970s, and then left in 1976 when she was became pregnant with her daughter Liza. Twenty-one years later, in 1997, after doing several things to occupy her time, Maria happily returned to the Library.  That was the plan, and she’s been here ever since!

My happiest times are interacting with the people – from Library staff to patrons of all ages and backgrounds.  A sense of fulfillment keeps me here.
What book are you currently reading or is on your nightstand waiting to be explored?
Currently I am reading Talking to Animals: How You Can Understand Animals and They Can Understand You by Jon Katz.

He and his border collie, Red, were very popular with all the librarians – his book is a must read!

Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things: Amy Dickinson in conversation with Gina Barreca about Love, Loss, and Coming Home

 

New York Times bestselling author and America’s most popular advice columnist “Ask Amy” AMY DICKINSON shares her journey of family, second chances and finding love.  In Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things, Amy Dickinson peels back the curtain of her syndicated advice column and reveals much of the inspiration and motivation that has fueled her calling.  

This special evening event features Amy Dickinson in a lively conversation with fellow author Gina Barreca.

In her follow-up memoir to The New York Times bestselling The Mighty Queens of Freeville–America’s most popular advice columnist, “Ask Amy,” shares her journey of family, second chances, and finding love.

Exploring central themes of romance, death, parenting, self-care, and spiritual awakening, this touching and heartfelt homage speaks to all who have faced challenges in the wake of life’s twists and turns. From finding love in middle-age to her storied experience with step-parenting to overcoming disordered eating to her final moments spent with her late mother, Dickinson’s trademark humorous tone delivers punch and wit that will empower, entertain, and heal.

Amy Dickinson writes the syndicated “Ask Amy” advice column, which replaced the Ann Landers column in 2003. “Ask Amy” appears in more than 150 newspapers in North America, including the LA Times, The Chicago Tribune,Newsday, The Boston Globe, The Denver Post, The St. Louis Post Dispatch and The Washington Post. She currently lives in Freeville, NY.

Gina Barreca is fed up with women who lean in, but don’t open their mouths. In her latest collection of essays, she turns her attention to subjects like bondage which she notes now seems to come in fifty shades of grey and has been renamed Spanx. She muses on those lessons learned in Kindergarten that every woman must unlearn like not having to hold the hand of the person you’re waking next to (especially if he’s a bad boyfriend) or needing to have milk, cookies and a nap every day at 3:00 PM (which tends to sap one’s energy not to mention what it does to one’s waistline). She sounds off about all those things a woman hates to hear from a man like “Calm down” or “Next time, try buying shoes that fit”.

If You Lean In, Will Men Just Look Down Your Blouse? is about getting loud, getting love, getting ahead and getting the first draw (or the last shot). Here are tips, lessons and bold confessions about bad boyfriends at any age, about friends we love and ones we can’t stand anymore, about waist size and wasted time, about panic, placebos, placentas and certain kinds of not-so adorable paternalism attached to certain kinds of politicians. The world is kept lively by loud women talking and If You Lean In, Will Men Just Look Down Your Blouse? cheers and challenges those voices to come together and speak up. You think she’s kidding? Oh, boy, do you have another thing coming.

GINA BARRECA is nationally syndicated columnist with Tribune News Service. She’s the author of It’s Not That I’m BitterBabes in BoylandThey Used to Call Me Snow White but I Drifted and co-author of  I’m With Stupid: One Man, One Woman, and 10,000 Years of Misunderstandings Between The Sexes Cleared Right Up with Pulitzer Prize winner Gene Weingarten. She’s a professor of English at UConn, and a member of the Friars’ Club. She grew up in Brooklyn, NY but now lives in Storrs, CT. Go figure.

R.J. Julia Booksellers and New Haven Legal Assistance Assoc. Present Scott Turow, “Testimony”

R.J. Julia Booksellers and New Haven Legal Assistance Association Present SCOTT TUROW!

Please note, the venue location for this event is R.J. Julia Booksellers, 768 Boston Post Road, Madison, CT. 

In the bestselling tradition of Presumed Innocent—the 1987 debut novel that made him “one of the major writers in America” (NPR)—comes what may be Scott Turow’s best thriller yet.

Bill ten Boom has walked out on everything he thought was important to him: his career, his wife, Kindle County, even his country. Still, when he is tapped to examine the disappearance of an entire Gypsy refugee camp—unsolved for ten years—he feels drawn to what will become the most elusive case of his career.

In order to uncover what happened during the apocalyptic chaos after the Bosnian War, Boom must navigate a host of suspects ranging from Serb paramilitaries to organized crime gangs to the U.S. government, while also maneuvering among the alliances and treacheries of those connected to the case: Morgan Merriwell, a disgraced U.S. Major General; Ferko Rincic, the massacre’s sole survivor; and Esma Czarni, an alluring barrister with secrets to protect.

A master of the legal thriller, Scott Turow has returned with his most irresistibly confounding and satisfying novel yet.

Scott Turow is the author of ten bestselling works of fiction, including IdenticalInnocentPresumed Innocent, and The Burden of Proof, and two nonfiction books, including One L, about his experience as a law student. His books have been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, and have been adapted into movies and television projects. He has frequently contributed essays and op-ed pieces to publications such as the New York TimesWashington PostVanity FairThe New Yorker, and The Atlantic.

New Haven Legal Assistance Association, Inc. (LAA) is a nonprofit organization that was incorporated on April 7, 1964 to “secure justice for and to protect the rights of those residents of New Haven County unable to engage legal counsel.” LAA was one of the first legal services programs established and the federal government used it as a model for similar programs throughout the country.

A ticket is $35 and will admit (1) person to the event. Ticket includes (1) copy of Testimony.

If you’re unable to attend the event and would like a signed copy of Testimony, please purchase the “Signed” version below.

This event will be moderated by Alexis Smith.

Alexis Smith, Executive Director, New Haven Legal Assistance Assoc.
Alexis joined LAA in September, 2012 as Deputy Director and will be dedicating her talents to the education and employment units. She obtained her J.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Law School and B.A. from Duke University. Alexis is admitted to practice law in Connecticut, the Federal Court for Connecticut, and the United States Supreme Court.

Alexis is a past president of the George Crawford Black Bar Association, and currently serves as secretary of the Connecticut Center for Arts and Technology (CONNCAT), secretary of Community Partners in Action, and a member of the Highville Charter School Board of Directors. In her spare time, Alexis referees youth and high school soccer and basketball and enjoys spending time with her family.
