Introduction to Windows 10
Wednesday, Jan. 11
We expect these programs to fill quickly, as the class size will be kept small. If you have recently updated to Windows 10 and feel it would be helpful to take a beginners course, then this is the class for you. IT librarian Andrew Ward will be going over some basic Windows 10 system information and answering as many questions as time permits. There will be two classes offered. The first will run from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and the second will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Please register online or in person.
Lincoln Center Local
Sunday, Jan. 15, 2 to 4 p.m.
Few have captured the magic of the theatre better than Moss Hart, a poor kid from the Bronx who went on to become a lion of Broadway. Moss Hart, the writer of classic comedies with George S. Kaufman and the director of the original production of “My Fair Lady,” has captivated theater lovers for over 50 years with his memoir, “Act One.”
Now another lion of the theater, James Lapine, has fittingly reimagined this memoir for the stage. Lincoln Center Theater’s gorgeous production pulls out all the stops, creating a world as vivid and transformative as the stage itself. But it’s the strong performances from its first-rate cast — led by Tony Shalhoub, Andrea Martin and Santino Fontana — that anchor the play in real human emotion.
Saturday, Jan. 28, 2 to 4 p.m.
Nathan Lane gives the performance of a lifetime as Chauncey Miles, a comedian of the 1930s who plays gay men for laughs – at least on stage. With a touching love story at its core, Douglas Carter Beane’s Tony Award-nominated play is also a fond and funny tribute to the golden age of burlesque.
Saturday, Feb. 11, 2 to 4 p.m.
Based on a bestselling novel by Edna Ferber, “Show Boat,” with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, tells the 40-year story of the lives of performers, stagehands, and dock workers who are the denizens of the Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat.
