The Greenwich Odeum Theater reopens tomorrow (Saturday) with an evening of performances at its historic location on Main Street in East Greenwich. After surviving many incarnations since it opened as a vaudeville house in 1926, the theater closed in 2007 due to stricter fire codes following the tragic 2003 Station nightclub fire in West Warwick. Five years and over 200,000 dollars in renovations later, the Greenwich Odeum will host performing arts events once again. Co-chair of the Odeum's board, Frank Prosnitz, says theater lovers old and new are ready for this next chapter.
Oh my goodness, folks, those wacky Brits are back. They arrived Monday night in a slippery snowstorm using as their invasion vehicle the much anticipated, and much hyped, “Anne Boleyn” by veteran troublemaking playwright Howard Brenton. You will remember his work if you caught the deliciously provocative play “Paul” which celebrated the life of St. Paul at the Gamm a while ago.

For this month’s Artscape, we go to a Winter Solstice music celebration featuring the Irish harpist and singer Aine Minogue. The concert is put on by the Common Fence Music Association, a non-profit group based in Portsmouth, RI and as they say on their website, “focused on presenting music and music education in a people-oriented and sustainable community setting.” Do you have insight or expertise on this topic? Please email us, we'd like to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org
