The Happiness Project Charles Spearin's Happiness Project was easily one of the most unique and odd albums to come from the extended Broken Social Scene family, and you can check out the live version tonight at the Gladstone. See listing.
WIth The Void Painters Stephen Andrews and Pierre Dorion and video artist Dara Gellman explore the territory between the figurative and the abstract. The title comes from a comment Albert Camus wrote in a guest book for an Yves Klein exhibit: "Avec le vide, les pleins pouvoirs" (With the void, full powers). At Diaz Contemporary. See listing.
Next To Normal It's rare for a musical to win the Pulitzer Prize, but Next To Normal (which also won a Tony) wows just about everyone who sees it. Another Tony winner for the show, Alice Ripley, is great as a mother dealing with bipolar disorder, but just as good -- maybe even better -- is Emma Hunton, who plays her daughter. See review here and listing here.
Sketchcomedylounge Have fond memories of the Kids in the Hall? You can catch two of them, Scott Thompson and Kevin McDonald, as part of tonight's entertainment at the Rivoli, along with the Imponderables, Ron Sparks and others. See listing.
