Neumans continue to fuel invisible pogo sticks with their recent efforts Sorry for Partyin’ and Fishin’ for Woos.

The Picture House's very first film flickered across the screen in 1921, and today, the recently restored nonprofit continues its legacy by showcasing a variety of new independent features, foreign films, and classic cinematic wonders. The theater projects hard-to-find flicks in both its 300-seat main house and intimate 20-seat screening room, eliciting laughter, kick-starting sorrow, and rekindling dreams of finding one's destiny during a battle with merpeople. To keep guests on the back edge of their seats, the owners frequently curate and host dedicated series that highlight family-friendly flicks, international pictures, and acclaimed documentaries.
While living the life of a peripatetic juggling duo in 1970s Europe, Paul Binder and Michael Christensen had a dream: a non-profit circus that would combine community outreach with shows by the world’s best performers. Today a rotating cast of acrobats, clowns, and daredevils tour with a menagerie of exotic animals. Led by animal trainer Jenny Vidbel. The circus's ponies, Arabian horses, and dogs perform sprightly routines, learned under humane training regimens based on positive reinforcement. Shows take place under the big top, custom designed so that every seat is within 50 feet of the ring. The tent is also engineered to keep showgoers comfortable with a raisable cupola that allows warm air to escape as guests relax on comfy cushions that keep incubating eggs from cracking in back pockets.
Led by globetrotting maestro Eckart Preu, the Stamford Symphony satiates aural appetites with beautiful interpretations of classic and modern pieces. The program will kick off with Leroy Anderson's chart-topping 1951 melody "Blue Tango," which beguiles eardrums with midcentury charm and quarter notes bearing roses in their teeth. Next, the symphony treats audiences to "Last Round," written by contemporary Argentinean composer Osvaldo Golijov to commemorate the death of celebrated tango composer Astor Piazzolla. The soprano saxophone concerto of Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Jennifer Higdon allows the bluesy sax to moodily soar under the supporting harmonies of a full orchestra. Preu tops off the evening with Beethoven's celebrated Symphony no. 6, Pastoral, a five-act tone poem that conjures up images of a day in the country without the hassle of traveling or milking a cow in your living room.
