THE B-52'S 40TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR WITH VERY SPECIAL GUESTS OMD & BERLIN
The Mann Center for the Performing Arts
The B-52’s celebrate their 40th Anniversary live at the Mann on September 19th with very special guests OMD and Berlin.
You don’t need to look too hard to see or hear the multi-dimensional influence of The B-52's… For as loud as anthems like “Dance This Mess Around,” “Love Shack,” and “Rock Lobster” might resound, the group has quietly impacted alternative music, fashion, and culture over the course of four+ decades. Selling over 20 million albums worldwide, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated quartet—Fred Schneider (vocals, toy piano), Kate Pierson (vocals, keyboards), Cindy Wilson (vocals, percussion), and Keith Strickland (guitar, drums, keys, programming)—ignited a legacy of innovation and inspiration that dates back to 1976.

STEEL RIVER PLAYHOUSE PRESENTS THE ETHICS OF LIVING JIM CROW
Steel River Playhouse
For ONE Night Only!
Steel River Playhouse Presents
The Ethics of Living Jim Crow
Join Steel River Playhouse in Pottstown PA on Saturday, September 21st at 8PM for an intense and important theatrical event, which will highlight the painful era in US history characterized by the forced segregation of African Americans. Mr. Brown brings these stories to life in a way that will stay with you long after the evening is over.
In 2007, local dramatist Reginald C. Brown was granted permission by Julia Wright, Richard Wright's daughter, to adapt stories from her father's book, Uncle Tom's Children. Richard Wright was, arguably, the most influential African-American writer of the twentieth century.
Uncle Tom's Children (1938) is a collection of short stories which laid bare, unflinchingly, the intense desperation felt by African Americans living under Jim Crow laws and practices. Before Wright, no one had exposed with such emotional power the oppression faced by People of Color. It would not be an exaggeration to say that his books helped to lay the ground work for the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s.
