    - On Friday, June 2nd the Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield, CT welcomes comedian Paula Poundstone. “The kids are out of school for the summer. Come enjoy a night of laughter while that still seems like good news,” says the Emmy Award-winning Poundstone about her upcoming performance.

    Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s foremost comedians, prized for her razor-sharp wit and an incomparable spontaneous interaction with a crowd. Writes Nick Zaino with the Boston Globe: "…there's a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she's so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong.” A star of several HBO specials and her own series on ABC and HBO, Poundstone can be heard regularly on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, where she holds court with our Country’s top Pundits. Says Peter Sagal, host of the show, “Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known….If you chopped her into bits, each piece would be hilarious. (But don’t.)”

    Also an author, Paula’s second book, The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness (Algonquin Books) debuts on May 9, 2017. Is there a secret to happiness? Meditation? Volunteering? Getting in shape? Swing dancing? Driving a Lamborghini? You may be laughing too hard to care. Poundstone was the first woman to perform at the prestigious White House Correspondents Dinner, the first woman to win the Cable television ACE for Best Standup Comedy Special, and is an American Comedy Award-winner for Best Female Standup Comic.

    - Members of the public are invited to learn about an exciting and rewarding volunteer opportunity at Pequot Library’s Prospective Docent Information Session on Thursday, June 8, 2017 from 10:00 - 11:30am. The Library is looking for members of the community interested in history and education to lead guided tours of the institution’s Special Collections exhibitions of rare books, manuscripts, and archives, library history and architecture, and art exhibitions for students and community groups.

    Pequot Library Docents are trained volunteers who engage visitors through lively, interactive discussion, and a hands-on approach to learning while conveying the celebrated warmth of Pequot Library. Docents are needed to lead tours that serve community groups of adults and children, school groups, adults and children with special needs, and ESL learners. Jean Kaul, School Programs Coordinator at Pequot Library, adds, “Guided tours of Pequot Library’s Special Collections exhibitions offer unparalleled insight into the culture and history of the United States, nature, literature, and the arts. We are excited to welcome a new class of docents to the library this spring, so that we may continue to bring our treasures to life for the community.” This program is supported by the Town of Fairfield.

    During the Prospective Docent Information Session, the public will have the opportunity to learn about the program and meet with current Pequot docents.

    Although they first broke into the limelight marketed as a country act in the 1990s, Miami's Mavericks, led by the soaring, Roy Orbison-like vocals of singer Raul Malo, and with a sound that blends country elements with Tex-Mex, Latin, and Cuban touches, along with pure pop, making them close to a band like Los Lobos than a country band.

    More than two decades into a career, The Mavericks turn another corner with the new album Brand New Day, to be released on March 31.

    - Early Elton on StageOne
    Friday, June 9

    A tribute to the Elton John, Dee Murray and Nigel Olsson trio tours from 1970 - 1972 featuring members of Southside Johnny, Bon Jovi, The Fab Faux, and Ian Hunter Band.

    Early Elton used rare video and recordings in shaping their collective vision of Elton's trio period to create the ultimate homage to Sir Elton. If you can imagine those lucky enough to have been at A&R Studios in 1970, you can understand what it'll be like to share a night with these fellow music lovers.
