Don’t let the cold keep you from enjoying live music, brews, jambalaya and more at Alexandria’s annual Winter Blues Fest. Local musicians, The Millstream Mojo Blues Band, will warm up the crowd both nights. On Friday evening, enjoy a mix of blues, jazz, reggae and more by The Josh Garrett Band. RB Stone and his band will be performing on Saturday. A portion of the proceeds from Winter Blues Fest will benefit the Mazza Museum at The University of Findlay.
“Wit,” the winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama by Margaret Edson, is about Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., a renowned professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the brilliant and difficult metaphysical sonnets of John Donne. She has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. Her approach to the study of Donne is aggressively probing and intensely rational, but during the course of her illness, and her stint as a prize patient in an experimental chemotherapy program at a major teaching hospital, Vivian comes to reassess her life and her work with a profundity and humor that are transformative both for her and the audience.
