  • “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee has bred generations of followers, and there’s good reason: For baby boomers and beyond, the Pulitzer Prize-winning book was the first clear depiction of fighting for civil rights, in spite of the odds. It became an instant overnight sensation.

  • “Every other line is famous,” whispered an audience member in astonishment to her friend during a performance of the Round Table Theatre Company’s “Hamlet” at Guild Hall on Sunday.

  • The Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue has chosen to open its 30th season with a laudable production of the 1945 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “Harvey,” by Mary Chase, directed by Diana Marbury.  

  • “Travesties” by Sir Tom Stoppard opened Saturday as the second production in Bay Street’s season of — as Scott Schwartz, the artistic director, puts it — “art and revolution.” If one were to Google the words “plays about art and revolution,” this provocative and brilliant offering by the Isaac Newton of theater would most likely be first, or at least in the top 10.

  •     All Charlie Baker wants is some peace and quiet — from his humdrum London desk job, his dying wife, and his own demons. But when Froggy LeSueur, an English military type still with the barest whiff of colonialism about him, brings the staid British bore on a three-day job 100 miles south of Atlanta, a mishmash of mushmouth and cultural clashes ensues, with jaw-hurting hilarity.

  •     Sunday’s matinee performance of “Sex: What She’s Really Thinking,” by Ilene Beckerman and Michael Disher, was packed, and an appreciative audience filled the Southampton Cultural Center with laughter throughout the show.

  •     Gérald Sibleyras's  “Le Vent des Peupliers” (“The Wind in the Poplars”), adapted for the English stage by Tom Stoppard as “Heroes,” is the second offering this year at the Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue, and quite an offering it is, too.

  •    Somewhere between the edgy nihilism of Holden Caulfield and the playful insurgency of Ferris Bueller, there was Benjamin Braddock, the 1960s misfit hero of “The Graduate,” now playing at the Southampton Cultural Center until Sunday.

  • Maidstone’s experts make case for irrigation plan
  • Turtle Rescue of the Hamptons, a nonprofit based in Jamesport on the North Fork, is doing its best to help save the local animals, rehabilitating and releasing as many as 100 turtles a year.
