Get Out: Star-Gazing, Changing Mexico, Free Museums
STARS: "A Story in the Stars" at Vista Hermosa Park promises to tell the story of 2012 by looking to the sky (and explaining what the Mayan calendar really said). Meet at the park office (the park is just west of downtown) at 5 pm for the 2-hour program
MEXICO: The play "El Nogalar" dubbed "explosive tale of humor and heartache in a changing Mexico" premieres tonight at The Fountain Theatre at 5060 Fountain Avenue. The play is inspired by Anton Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard." When the Galvan family returns home to Mexico after years in the U.S., they must come to terms with encroaching drug cartels, economic upheaval and a new class order.
MUSEUMS: This is a great weekend to get out and go to the museum for free.
