For those unable to make it to the Big Easy this weekend, Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks and the HooDoo Loungers will headline a Mardi Gras party at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Saturday at 8 p.m.
Since Mr. Casey formed the Lone Sharks after moving to the East End in 1988, the band’s roots-drenched rock has been a staple of the local music scene and beyond. The band did 150 shows last year, mostly on Long Island but also in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York City.
The John Drew Theater Lab will present a free staged reading of Roger Rueff’s 1992 play, “Hospitality Suite,” on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
Set in a small hotel room in Wichita during a business convention, the story focuses on two salesmen and a research scientist for a firm that manufactures industrial lubricants. While waiting for a meeting with a C.E.O. they hope will save their company, they air their conflicting ideas about character, salesmanship, honesty, religion, and love, with less than harmonious results.
