  • Center Stage at the Southampton Cultural Center will begin a three-week run of “A Chorus Line” tonight at 7:30. The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, conceived and choreographed by Michael Bennett, opened on Broadway in 1975 and ran for more than 6,000 performances. Set at an audition, the show celebrates the ambitions and disappointments of background dancers who perform in the shadow of a production’s stars.

  • As part of the Madoo Talks lecture series, Marilee Foster, an artist, writer, and farmer whose family settled in Sagaponack in the mid-1700s, will talk about “The Evolving Sagaponack Landscape” at the Madoo Conservancy in that village on Sunday at noon.

  • After a monthlong hiatus, the Fireside Sessions with Nancy Atlas will return to Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor tomorrow evening at 8. Ms. Atlas’s guests will include Billy Campion and Billy Ryan, formerly of the Bogmen, one of New York City’s biggest underground bands during the mid-1990s.

  • Spring Sports

    Spring will officially be here Monday insofar as East Hampton High School sports — boys and girls lacrosse, girls and boys track, baseball, softball, and boys tennis — are concerned.

    As of last week, Lou Reale, the softball coach, couldn’t get into the shed where his pitching machine is stored, and, given all the snow cover, it seems as if it will take a while not only for the snow to disappear, but also for the softball and baseball infields to dry out.
