Exhibition. Last Days of Pangea: In the Footsteps of the Dinosaurs @ Bruce Museum Tickets
Nov 19 2016 @ 10:00 am – Jul 16 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Exhibition. Last Days of Pangea: In the Footsteps of the Dinosaurs @ Bruce Museum |  |  |

This exhibition features beautiful fossils and life restoration models of some of the weird and wonderful species that thrived in the Triassic but died out at the end of that Period. These include armored plant-eating crocodile relatives, long-necked reptiles that swam like frogs, and the Icarosaurus, which glided on a membrane supported by outstretched ribs. Also featured are the 14-foot-long predator Postosuchus, a bipedal relative of modern crocodiles that kept early dinosaurs off the top of the food chain, and Coelophysis, a small dinosaur accused of cannibalism but acquitted by new scientific research. Historic footprints from throughout the Connecticut Valley record the comings and goings of dinosaurs and their kin.

Mannequins on the Runway, Haute Couture and Contemporary Designs of the 20th Century @ Darien Historical Society Tickets
Apr 21 @ 12:00 pm – Aug 31 @ 5:00 pm
Mannequins on the Runway,  Haute Couture and Contemporary Designs of the 20th Century @ Darien Historical Society |  |  |

In keeping with its mission to tell the ongoing story of “costume”, one of history’s most tangible artifacts, the Darien Historical Society is presenting designer and ready-to-wear styles that existed during and after World War II. Mannequins on the Runway, Haute Couture and Contemporary Designs of the 20th Century highlights five decades of fashion with designer outfits from the 1940s through the 1990s. It follows the history of prêt-à-porter, or ready-to-wear, as it largely replaced haute couture in the fashion industry. The exhibit opens on April 21 and runs through August 2017, with a Champagne Reception on April 21 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and Ladies’ Luncheons with the Curator on May 3 and 10 at 11:30 a.m.

Curator of the show, Babs White, set up the exhibit to mimic a 20th century fashion show, with mannequins lined up as if on the runway. White, who has her own 47-year history with the Darien Historical Society as its costume curator, arranged the fashions chronologically, beginning with a 1947 design by Christian Dior. She commented, “At the end of World War II, women longed to replace fashion’s stiff, square shoulders and straight lines. Dior’s more romantic look took the fashion world by storm.” Dior’s success allowed Paris to reassert its world leadership of haute couture following its decline during the war.

Dior eventually commissioned his designs to be produced abroad as ready-to-wear lines in the 1950s and Yves Saint Laurent followed suit with his “Rive Gauche” designs. In the 60s, the charm and elegant style of Jackie Kennedy was greatly admired and copied, and Sophie of Saks and Elizabeth Arden, both represented in the exhibit, produced designs in New York. By the mid-60s, fashion began to focus on youth, their music, and their “free-wheeling” attitude, producing the most potent symbol of the 60s scene, the miniskirt, also on display.

Bill Blass and Oscar de la Renta creations reflect the bold fabrics of the 1980s, which also heralded the look of big shoulders and giant sleeves. The Reagan administration signaled the return of formality, and Adolfo and Ungaro fashions mirror the 90s, an era in which ready-to-wear had become dominant. In keeping with a typical fashion show of the 20th century, the exhibit concludes with a bridal gown: a 1983 design by Carolina Herrera, socialite and longtime fixture on the best-dressed list.

Fairfield County Bank, Darien Board of Realtors, Pagano’s Seafood, Palmer’s of Darien, Leary’s Liquor Cabinet, Cesco’s Trattoria, Sanda’s Cleaners and Tailors, Darien Sport Shop, The Finishing Touch Landscaping, and Diane Browne Catering sponsor Mannequins on the Runway. The hours of the exhibit are from noon to 5 p.m. from Tuesdays through Thursdays, and on Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. A non-member donation of $5 is suggested. Cost for the Champagne Reception on April 21 is $50 for members and $65 for nonmembers. Ladies’ Luncheons on May 3 and 10 are $25 for members and $35 for nonmembers.

SWEET CHARITY @ Curtain Call / Kweskin Theatre Tickets
Jun 2 @ 8:00 pm – Jun 24 @ 10:30 pm
SWEET CHARITY @ Curtain Call / Kweskin Theatre |  |  |

Sweet Charity, the iconic Broadway musical written by Cy Coleman (music), Dorothy Fields (lyrics), and Neil Simon (book), will trod the boards at the Kweskin Theatre on Newfield Avenue, in Stamford, Connecticut, for four weekends, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., beginning June 2 and playing through June 24.

Long before iPhones, Facebook, and dating sites, there was sweet and naive Charity Hope Valentine, a taxi dancer at a sleazy dance hall called the Fandango Ballroom in New York City. Wearing her heart on her sleeve – in her case, her arm – this vulnerable and trusting waif wants nothing more than to love and be loved. The show is based on Federico Fellini’s 1957 film classic, “Nights of Cabiria.”

“I’ve always been a huge Neil Simon fan and this show, in particular, has been a favorite…it’s the third time I’ve worked on “Sweet Charity,” says Curtain Call’s executive director, Lou Ursone, adding, “so, if the proverb is correct, and ‘third time’s a charm,’ then we have a hit on our hands.”

This classic of the American Broadway Musical Theatre is directed by Debra Lee Failla, with music direction by Tony Bellomy. Re-staging the iconic choreography by the legendary Bob Fosse, will be Emily Frangipane. Megan Latte Ormond is creating the costumes and Peter Barbieri, Jr., will be designing the set, with lighting design by Aaron Meadow.

“Sweet Charity” is “a bittersweet story with loads of laughs and some of the greatest music ever created for the stage (“Big Spender,” “If They Could See Me Now,” “Rhythm of Life”),” says Ursone. “It’s an honest look at 1960s New York, with all its trials and tribulations not seen in many shows.” “To me, while the show may not have a fairy tale ending, it’s a reminder that if you get knocked down you need to get up, brush yourself off, try again and never give up,” said Failla.

‘Sweet Charity” will play in The Kweskin Theatre, June 2 through 24, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00m and Sunday afternoons at 2:00pm. Regular prices are $32 for adults, $25 for senior citizens and $16 for children. Thursday evenings, all seats $25. Box Office: 203-461-6358 or online at www.curtaincallinc.com. More information is available at www.curtaincallinc.com or by calling 203-461-6358.
