November Events Image

As you may have heard (perhaps from our very own blog yesterday), our building was among the hundreds of thousands without power last week due to Winter Storm Alfred, so we were unable to post our monthly live events preview. But have no fear! Here are the highlights, with plenty of time left in the month to enjoy them.

Before I get into that, just let me remind you to celebrate International Drum Month and Real Jewelry Month (as opposed to fake jewelry, I suppose).


Trans-Siberian Orchestra: This is one of my favorite new holiday traditions. TSO takes classic holiday songs and turns them into rocking laser light shows. One of the most exciting winter concerts you'll see.

NFL: Excitement is growing for Turkey Day games, which this year include Lions vs. Packers, Cowboys vs. Dolphins and Ravens vs. 49ers. November is key for establishing dominance in the league, as there are are only a few months left until the playoffs.

Bonnie & Clyde: This new musical is at the top of my Broadway to-do list this year, since it combines 1930s criminals with music. What could be better? Previews began November 4, and the show officially opens December 1.
