Laughter really is the best medicine…


February 9, 8pm 

Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood of Whose Line is it Anyway

Tarrytown Music Hall (Tarrytown, NY)

COLINBRAD2013WEBIf you’ve ever seen an episode of Whose Line is it Anyway, you know who Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood are. If you haven’t, you have no idea what you’re missing. Quick-witted, intelligent and talented, these two men are considered tops when it comes to improvisational comedy. This weekend the two will take the stage at Tarrytown Music Hall in what promises to be a hilarious evening. The show, made up entirely on the spot, relies heavily on audience participation; sometimes by shouting out suggestions and or by joining the comedians on stage. Whatever role you play, you’re sure to have a night of side-splitting humor.  For more info, visit:

This year, the Jacob Burns Film Center will appeal to sweethearts and movie-lovers alike with a one-time screening of Roman Holiday, the classic romantic comedy starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.  With performances that are as magical as the scenery (the film was shot on location), this is a film that was meant to be viewed on the “big screen.” But, best of all, the cozy theater provides an intimate experience that includes cappuccino, local bakery items and, for this showing only, a complimentary glass of champagne for each ticket holder.   For more info, visit:
