Weekend Warriors

Murder, music and film coming at you this weekend

There I was, on a sunny afternoon, perusing the columbusmakesart.com events section for weekend plans, when I saw it: OSU’s theater department’s production of Bonnets: How Ladies of Good Breeding Are Induced to Murder. Oh, OSU, you had me at murder. BTW this delish treat is running Oct. 29-Nov. 3 in the Roy Bowen Theater.

It’s going to be a fun weekend.

ProMusica’s Naked Classics returns with Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony, Friday Nov. 1, at the Southern Theatre. For those not familiar, Naked Classics provides a more immersive concert-going experience that allows the audience to explore the stories behind the music. I’m guessing they will explore questions like, “Hey Schubert, why didn’t you finish the symphony?”

Nov. 1 and 2 the Columbus Symphony will be presenting The Romantic Cello: Masterworks 3, at the Ohio Theatre.

The annual Blockfort tenant exhibition is upon us. This year the theme is We Are all Animals, and the opening reception is 6-9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 1 (at Blockfort of course).

Lowell Tolstedt: Small-Scale Recent Drawings, opens Friday, Nov. 1 at Keny Galleries. Opening reception is 6-8 p.m. Side note: Tolstedt was the dean of fine arts when I started working at Columbus College of Art & Design in 2001. In addition to being insanely talented, he is also kind and extremely funny.

Film nerds (written with pure love and repect) will be excited about the Wexner Center for the Arts Picture Lock program this weekend. They are featuring films from their 30-year history of filmmaker residencies. The first screenings are The American Sector and Land of the Breasted Woman, on Nov. 1 at the Wex.

And a quick last call note, The Rocky Horror Show at the Garden Theater will be wrapping up its run this weekend. So, see it while you can.

Lacey Luce is a digital strategist for the Greater Columbus Arts Council who does not know nearly enough to be a film nerd, but she is quickly becoming a knitting nerd. #nerdsrule.
