0 Written by: | Wednesday, May 06, 2015 12:02pm


From Center Stage Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah, comes a world premiere musical based on the life and music of Bob Marley. After surviving an assassination attempt in 1976, Marley left Jamaica for London, where he spent nearly two years in self-imposed exile. Chronicling the events surrounding this earth-shaking moment, Marley tells the story of a man transformed into one of the 20th Century’s most important cultural figures. Set in the soundscape of an era, this new musical weaves together the life and music of a man who, to heal himself, first healed his homeland. Click for more info.

Owl Bar is Auctioning Off Some Historic Furniture

OwlBar2-0Want to buy a piece of the Owl Bar? Figure out what you’re willing to bid.

The Owl Bar, located inside the Roosevelt Hotel, is holding an auction of historic items on May 31. The prime items up for bid will be six wooden banquettes that sat around the bar’s perimeter, dating to 1903.

“They have been replaced (we tried to incorporate into the new look, but to avail) with new ones, covered in faux zebra skins and rich oxblood mohair,” an announcement states.

An infamous antique stool will also be auctioned off.

Glenn Freeman, in conjunction with Jonathan Melnick, Auctioneer, will be running the bidding. Proceeds of the auction are set to benefit BARCS, and the organization is even bringing a few furry friends.
