Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre continues 

THURSDAY 6/13

Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre continues, with its one non-Shakespearean show of the season, "Oliver!" The musical is based on the Dickens classic "Oliver Twist," and it will be performed at UCA's Reynolds Performance Hall at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, $27. Fans of gothic folk are advised to check out Maxine's, which will host folk/blues-tinged duo Some Dark Holler and country-informed singer/songwriter Bonnie Whitmore, 8 p.m., free. Live at Laman continues this month with The Mercers and Charlotte Taylor, Laman Library, 7 p.m., free. If you're looking for some classic rock-inspired Red Dirt sounds, don't miss Micky & The Motorcars. Oklahoma singer/songwriter Samantha Crain returns to White Water Tavern, with Parker Milsap, 9:30 p.m. If for some reason you'd like to observe a charlatan hoodwinking the bereaved and credulous live and in-person, you're in luck, because "psychic" and TV host John Edward will be at Robinson Center Music Hall, 7 p.m., $45-$95. Fans of sketch comedy will probably want to check out Red Octopus Theater's "Electric Octopus," 8 p.m. Thursday through Friday. Grown-ups only, as usual.

FRIDAY 6/14

Here's one that's sure to pack out White Water Tavern: Cory Branan, performing with Pawtuckets alum Andy Grooms, 9:30 p.m. You can catch Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre's production of "Much Ado About Nothing" on a pay-what-you-can basis at The Village at Hendrix, 7:30 p.m. Friday and Sunday. Up in Northwest Arkansas, TheatreSquared presents its 2013 Arkansas New Play Festival, which includes staged readings of four new plays, a showcase of 10-minute plays by Arkansas high school students and the annual 24-Hour Play-Off, Walton Arts Center's Nadine Baum Studios, 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m., $7-$10.

SATURDAY 6/15

Magic Springs hosts Contemporary Christian Music star TobyMac, with Capital Kings, Timberwood Amphitheater, 9 p.m., $50-$60. 2013 Simply Red: A Night of Stars is a fundraiser for the Arkansas AIDS Foundation, with live entertainment, heavy hors d'oeuvres, silent auction and more, Argenta Community Theater, 6:30-10:30 p.m., $60-$100. This year's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner features keynote speaker Gov. Jennifer Granholm of Michigan, Statehouse Convention Center, 7 p.m. Vintage goods buffs will want to head on over to the first South Main Vintage Market, which will have vintage and antique goods for sale, The Bernice Garden, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

MONDAY 6/17

Jazz legend and "Schoolhouse Rock!" composer Bob Dorough will perform at The Afterthought, 8 p.m., $5.

  • Cotton speech draws protest

    I'm at anchor on a ship lying off Grand Turk Island, and I should have known better than to pick up the digital Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, particularly given the painfully slow download time on the ship's satellite Internet. But I did and began a slow burn.
  • Stop presses: Clintons ambitious

    Here are a couple of earthshaking developments: It turns out that Hillary Clinton is obsessed with privacy and that across the years former U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers detected ethical failings in other politicians, even friends like Bill and Hillary Clinton.
  • The loss of skepticism

    The manufacture and dissemination of didactic fables pleasing to the viewing audience is what many journalists do. And that's becoming almost as true at MSNBC as at Fox News. Particularly in stories involving race and sex, that is to say, a lot of them.
