November Arts At A Glance In SLC
Nov 10th 2011
One of the main reasons I love living in Salt Lake is the plethora of arts related activities and options. We have everything from classical music to heavy metal, from Broadway theater to community productions, from break dancing to ballet. There is something for just about every interest and, perhaps more importantly, something at every price. Here are a few events you can take advantage of this month: In just a few weeks the Natural History Museum of Utah will open in its new location. They are holding a Grand Opening Community Gala on Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. For more information, visit the museum's website. The new space opens to the public Nov. 18. At Hale Centre Theatre you can see My Fair Lady, the beloved Broadway musicial that scored six Tony Awards. My Fair Lady plays Monday-Saturday evenings, and Saturday afternoons, through Nov. 26. Visit Hale Theatre for more info and tickets.
Check out the Guest Writers Series on Nov. 17 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Finch Lane Gallery and Art Barn (54 Finch Lane). You can hear readings from prose writers Danzy Senna and Robert Glick, and the reading is free and open to the public. For more info, click here.
Salt Lake Acting Co. will feature A Man Enters through Dec. 4. The play, according to the Acting Co., is a “semi-autobiographical and wildly-whimsical odyssey about love -- and then what happens.” At the Sorenson Unity Center you can see For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf until Nov. 20. “For colored girls is a “choreopoem,” according to the center's website. "A series of 20 poems depicting the struggles and obstacles recognizable to any African-American woman.” Performance contains strong language and adult content.
