Jan 19, 2006 - 10:42 AMTonight: don't forget Villagefest!
Friday: At 4pm, Kitty Carlisle Hart celebrates her 95th birthday by performing at the Annenberg. Her website claims that she's "the oldest working woman in show business." Sounds about right.
Saturday morning: the Desert Film Society is screening Pure at 9am. The Society serves complimentary coffee & pastries, and Keira Knightley costars in the flick. Yum to both.
Saturday afternoon: Try a 2pm matinee of Cirque Dreams at the Palm Springs Pavilion Theatre: "An international cast of acrobats, contortionists and aerialists perform under a multi-million dollar ultra violet stage set that ignites them into some of the most amazing feats and performances ever witnessed on stage and in the air." Mom always threatened to ignite a fire under my keister, but I think this is something different.
Saturday evening: Palm Canyon Theatre presents "Into the Woods" at 8pm: "An ambivalent Cinderella, a blood-thirsty Little Red Riding Hood, Prince Charming with a roving eye and a witch who raps are all part of this fractured fairy tale. One of Stephen Sondheim's most popular works." I'd say that pretty much speaks for itself.
Sunday: At 2:30pm, violinist Alexander Markov plays at the Annenberg. This guy won a Gold Medal at the Paganini International Violin Competition. Is that like the Good Housekeeping Seal of the fiddling world?
