This Week In Art : 08.19.19

The intimacy of theater when you can see every detail is something you're missing out on if you've only ever seen productions in huge rooms. "This Week In Art" is here to connect you to Orlando's many artistic scenes.

- Friday, Ragtime the Musical opens at The Garden (through Sept 15). At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. In New York City, a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician are brought together by the promise of the future.

- Thursday & Friday, CFCArts Presents Into the Woods. Classic fairytale characters collide in Sondheim's fairytale masterpiece.

- Opening Wednesday, Mad Cow Theatre hosts Fade. A true-to-life new comedy, Mexican-American Lucia is hired to write for a Latina TV character in a cutthroat Hollywood TV studio.

Cornell Fine Arts Museum hosts their monthly Saturday Highlights Tour, a free docent-led tour of works currently on view at the museum.
