The great author, broadcaster and journalist Studs Terkel touched a nerve in 1974 when he published "Working", an oral history of real people and the jobs they performed. From sanitation truck drivers to professional athletes, the book gave voice to a sweepingly diverse cross-section of American life and was subsequently adapted into a Tony-nominated Broadway musical of the same name. Now that you're hooked on seeing it, prepared to be reeled in -- the "Working" musical was recently updated with new songs by "Hamilton" impresario Lin-Manuel Miranda, adding a whole new level of clout and resonance for the modern age, and it's coming to the Umbrella Annex in Concord. See it and be powerfully reminded that though there is much that divides us, we are all school teachers, millworkers, waitresses and masons. We are all united by the need to work, and to find meaning in the work that we do. [less-]

The Headless Horseman rides again -- on an actual horse -- as "The Sleepy Hollow Experience" returns to the living history museum known as Old Sturbridge Village with its goosebump-inducing mix of immersive outdoor storytelling, seasonal scares and spectacular special effects. Thrills, chills and even some laughs are provided as this period-perfect production puts you down right in the middle of Washington Irving's classic ghost story, where you'll follow a roving band of minstrels across the grounds to learn all about bumbling schoolteacher Ichabod Crane, his love for beautiful Katrina and his rivalry with the brutish Brom Bones. The "Worcester Telegram & Gazette" warns that intense feels may come from "witnessing the drama unfold in real time and, sometimes, too close for comfort." So it's about as close to a real-life "Westworld" experience as you can get without the killer robots. [less-]

Once you're done, you'll be able to say you've tried everything from a new California Cabernet to a German Riesling to a Portuguese wine made from grapes no one can pronounce.
