What Would Phyllis Do?
February 22, 2008 - Phyllis Sigal
I've been heading to Pittsburgh the last few weekends for assorted cultural events, but this weekend, I'm staying close to home. And I'm planning to catch a few of the events happening right here in our area.
The Wheeling Symphony, conducted by Andre Raphel Smith, is tonight at the John Marshall Center for the Performing Arts; concert talk at 7, concert at 8.
On the menu is the W.Va. premiere of Jennifer Higdon's "Concert 4-3," featuring the trio, Time for Three. From my inside source I hear it's going to be a great concert.
And speaking of menus, a concert at John Marshall is one more excuse for me to dine at Alexander's on Seventh, that great little spot in Moundsville. I try to tell everyone I know that if they're in Moundsville on a Friday night to check it out. The place is open for dinner only on Fridays, but for lunch Monday through Friday. I especially recommend any of the pasta dishes. The menu actually changes from week to week, which to me, is always a sign of a great place! It means they pay attention to what's fresh and available, and usually it means the chef is creative. Even if you're not in Moundsville, it's worth the drive.
"The Kite Runner" is at Towngate Cinema, a highly acclaimed film. My book club read the book, however, I never did get around to it. I've heard the book is wonderful, and the film a great one.
Rated PG 13, “The Kite Runner” will be shown at 7 and 9:15 p.m. today; 4, 7 and 9:15 p.m. Saturday; and 2 and 4:15 p.m. Sunday.
Saturday at Generations is the Half-Way to Jamboree Party. Performing will be the Joe Zelek Band. Opening for them will be Junior & Abby, formerly of The PovertyNeck Hillbillies.
"Cinderella" and "Amadeus" are on stage in Pittsburgh this weekend. "Cinderella" will be performed by Les Ballet de Monte-Carlo at the Benedum Center Saturday and Sunday. "Amadeus," presented by the Pittsburgh Public Theater, is at the O'Reilly Theatre through Sunday.
But, with the lovely weather we're having, it might just be a good weekend to stay in and catch up on some cleaning, reading and organizing!
