Almost, Maine
Discover Putnam, Connecticut – On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken.

Midwinter Mischief
Old Sturbridge Village – After a successful run last year, Midwinter Mischief returns to Old Sturbridge Village this January and February! Midwinter Mischief combines theatrical storytelling, historical interpretation and period dining to offer guests a daytime winter adventure… Imagine the tale of a Yankee peddler passing through the village who decides to settle down at the Bullard Tavern on a cold winter's night. There the peddler spends every dollar he has earned on food and drink, racking up a tab far beyond his means. After being confronted over his debt, the peddler fills up his cup with ashes from the hearth and promises the tavern owner that he will return with a cup overflowing of gold. From the Bullard Tavern, costumed storytellers, artisans, and villagers will entice tavern guests to wander deep into the village where they will find evidence of the peddler’s adventures and schemes. Admission to a Midwinter Mischief includes the two-hour outdoor/indoor experience and a period-inspired meal in the Village’s Bullard Tavern where guests can enjoy live music, demonstrations, and a cash bar. Each day, the first experience departs the Visitor Center at 9:00 am and the last at 3:00 pm, with experiences beginning every 20 minutes (except for noon and 12:20). After your adventure, you will be led to the Bullard Tavern Great Room where you can enjoy your inclusive hearty soup or stew meal. Non-members: $30 Adult | $20 Youth OSV Members: $20 Adult | $10 Youth Midwinter Mischief was written and directed by P.J. Griffith.

Think of England by KJ Charles
Annie's Book Stop in Worcester, Massachusetts – Its the start of our third year at Rainbow Readers so come and join us in the new year with a fantastic historical spy romance! Copies will be available soon at Annie's Book Stop of Worcester "Lie back and think of England... England, 1904. Two years ago, Captain Archie Curtis lost his friends, fingers, and future to a terrible military accident. Alone, purposeless and angry, Curtis is determined to discover if he and his comrades were the victims of fate, or of sabotage. Curtis’s search takes him to an isolated, ultra-modern country house, where he meets and instantly clashes with fellow guest Daniel da Silva. Effete, decadent, foreign, and all-too-obviously queer, the sophisticated poet is everything the straightforward British officer fears and distrusts. As events unfold, Curtis realizes that Daniel has his own secret intentions. And there’s something else they share—a mounting sexual tension that leaves Curtis reeling. As the house party’s elegant facade cracks to reveal treachery, blackmail and murder, Curtis finds himself needing clever, dark-eyed Daniel as he has never needed a man before."

Mozart & Beethoven
Springfield Symphony Orchestra – HAYDN Desert Island Overture MOZART Piano Concert No. 20, K.466, D minor BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3, Op. 55, E flat major (Eroica) These three composing contemporaries--friends, mentors and teachers--shocked and awed their audiences with their wild and wooly works! Desert Island Overture, a violent example of classical era tone painting, uses "sturm und drang" (storm and stress) to caue extremes of emotions. Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20, considered his most turbulent and Beethoven-ish works, is performed by Diane Walsh. Beethoven's bold Symphony No. 3, The Eroica (Heroic), celebrates the heroism of the individual against tyranny.
