Scott Naumann and friend in Five Card MurderComedy

Double Wider: Murder at the Chitlin County Fair and Five Card Murder

The Lodge Hotel and Skellington Manor

Friday, December 10, and Friday, December 17, 6:30 p.m.

 

When I first heard that Five Card Murder – the latest interactive comedy by the Quad Cities’ It’s a Mystery troupe – concerned a killing that takes place during a poker game, I thought it sounded like an ideal setup for big, juicy laughs. Then, a couple weeks later, some friends emptied my pockets in a poker game of our own. Now I’m just feeling enormous empathy for the killer.

The keynote presentation for the 25th-annual Quad Cities Youth Conference at the RiverCenter in Davenport on January 24 and 25 will be the MWAH! Performing Arts Troupe, an acronym for Messages Which Are Hopeful.

At its third appearance at this conference in the past nine years, the issues-oriented ensemble will combine real-life drama with contemporary music and audience interaction. An overall focus is what’s happening with today’s youth and their families, and a common thread is the importance of making the right choices. Current MWAH! troupe members range in age from nine to 19 and live in 11 cities and towns in the western suburbs of Chicago and across northern Illinois.

Naomi and Wynonna JuddMusic

The Judds: The Last Encore

i wireless Center

Sunday, November 28, 7 p.m.

 

By now, I’m presuming, we all pretty much know that Wikipedia shouldn’t be taken as the final word on any given subject. But I’ll admit that I was still taken aback by the very first sentence in its entry on a legendary musical act: “The Judds were an American country-music duo composed of Naomi Judd and her daughter, Wynnona Judd.” May I ask, Wikipedia: What the hell’s with the past tense?!

Maggie BrownMusic

Third Sunday Jazz featuring Maggie Brown

The Redstone Room

Sunday, November 21

 

“There is a lot of great music out here,” says performer Maggie Brown in a recent Chicago Defender interview. “It is not popularized. It’s not going to come to you on the radio, or on a CD. You have to look for it.”

Well, folks, you can stop looking; great music can be found at Davenport’s Redstone Room on November 21. Appearing as the latest guest in Polyrhythms’ monthly Third Sunday Jazz Series, the Chicago-based Maggie Brown will present a 3 p.m. jazz workshop and a 6 p.m. concert of bound-to-be-thrilling solos, underscoring why the Defender describes her as “a phenomenal artist who has loads of individual style.”

Tomáš Kubínek & Orchestra Iowa: Professor Kubínek Meets the Symphony

Iowa City West High School

Friday, November 5, 7:30 p.m.

 

Czech-born entertainer Tomáš Kubínek, who has displayed his ingratiating talents everywhere from Tokyo’s Asahi Hall to Broadway’s New Victory Theatre, is a multi-hyphenate if ever there was one: a musician-comedian-magician-director-vaudevillian-inventor-clown-award-winning-housefly-catcher. (Check out his Web site at Kubinek.com. I am so not kidding about that last one.)
