Music. Comedy. Theater. Connecticut has it all this weekend.
Saturday the 45th annual “Pickin’ & Fiddlin’ Contest” takes place in Roxbury. Musicians display their skills while you relax and enjoy the fun from the comfort of your own lawn chair or blanket. Also Saturday, Art Garfunkel plays the Warner Theatre in Torrington, and Queen Latifah takes the stage at Mohegan Sun Arena.
Comedy options include a Friday performance by Rob Schneider at Foxwoods Resort Casino. Saturday you can see three comedians, including headliner Steve Shaffer from Comedy Central, at the Treehouse Comedy Live at Ives Concert Park event in Danbury.
If you prefer your comedy wrapped into a Shakespearean classic, check out the production of “Much Ado About Nothing,” opening this weekend in Stamford. Curtain Call offers this outdoor show Thursday through Sunday (through July 21) at the Sterling Farms Complex.
That’s just a small sample of what’s happening. Check out the slide show to see what else you might enjoy.
