London, 1850: an anonymous writer sends a letter to the paper claiming to have committed the perfect crime—and promising to kill again. Young gentleman sleuth Charles Lenox is convinced that this is his chance to prove himself. In the tradition of Sherlock Holmes, this chilling new mystery in the bestselling historical suspense series takes readers back to Lenox’s very first case and the ruthless serial killer who would set him on the course to become one of London’s most brilliant detectives.

New Line Theatre presents Anything GoesMarch 1 – 24, 2018Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 8pmThursdays: Adult = $20, Student/Senior = $15, Military/Educator = $10 (with ID)Fridays & Saturdays: Adult = $25, Student/Senior = $20It’s 1934 and you’re going on a wild transatlantic cruise full of sex, booze, God, and gangsters. New Line continues its 27th season with the rowdy, naughty, subversive masterpiece of musical comedy, Cole Porter’s Anything Goes, a stinging satire of Americans’ quirky habit of turning religion into show business and criminals into celebrities, along the way skewering Wall Street, Prohibition, Old Money Brits, and a few other ripe targets. Anything Goes is a masterful mashup of musical comedy, gangaster movie, screwball comedy, and social satire. Anything Goes fearlessly ripped open the American psyche and spilled it all out onto a Broadway stage. And the American pysche hasn’t changed that much since 1934. Despite its reputation as fluff, the show is a whip-smart satire of American “cafe society” (the 1% of 1934), with the steamship S.S. American standing in for Shakespeare’s woods, a place with no rules, where people find out who they really are and “correct” the mistakes they’ve made in the world of the City.For more information, visit the New Line Theatre website.

Doors 7pm, Show 8pm, $25 Flat, All Ages, Buy Tickets @ Metrotix.comIf joy were a person, hed bring both peace and frenzy. Hed be full of music, light, and energy that soothes even as it stirs us up. Eyes closed, wire-rim glasses in place, mandolin pressed against his ribs, joy would be Sam Bush on a stage. I feel fortunate that when its time to play, no matter how I feel physically or mentally, once the downbeat starts, my mind goes to a place thats all music, says Bush. The joy of the music comes to me and overtakes me sometimes I just become part of the music. That rapt merging of life and art fills Bushs new album Storyman, a freewheeling collection that gleefully picks and chooses from jazz, folk, blues, reggae, country swing, and bluegrass to create a jubilant noise only classifiable as the Sam Bush sound. Many of the songs are stories several of them true and the legendary mandolin player co-wrote every one of them with friends including Guy Clark, Emmylou Harris, Jon Randall Stewart, Jeff Black, and others. Im hoping it just kind of flows for people and makes them go, Hey! Its a Sam record. It sounds like Sam and the band,' Bush says. But for the first time ever, I also find myself thinking, I hope you enjoy the stories. Its my singer-songwriter record. The Father of Newgrass and King of Telluride has long since established himself as roots royalty, revered for both his solo and sideman work, which includes time with Harris, Lyle Lovett, and Béla Fleck. But instead of kicking back and soaking up honors such as an Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award and suite of Grammys and International Bluegrass Music Association trophies, Bush still strives relentlessly to create something new.
