From the Tony award winning Mary Zimmerman, The Secret In The Wings has a new take of little-known fairy tales weaving a rather dark and beautiful new story. Beasts, beauties and other familiar/not so unfamiliar characters tell tales "from close corners of childhood to distant basements of imagination."

You have probably heard the phrase “strange bedfellows.” It may have been invented by Shakespeare in The Tempest, “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.” Today we often hear the phrase “politics makes strange bedfellows.” We’ll go one step further with Classical music and politics, strange bedfellows indeed!

From a 19th century folk song to a 2012 a musical portrait of “social and human crisis” for piano and orchestra, we’ll hear Political Classical compositions on today’s What’s New!

As dietary preferences change for many from meat-centered to plant-based, it is sometimes difficult to incorporate the variety into shared meals. Renowned vegetarian writer Anna Thomas has released a new cookbook that encompasses options for recipes that allow anyone to share the same food. Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore presents recipes that start as a vegan base, with the option to expand ingredients to include vegetarian and omnivore compliments, with the goal of bringing everyone together at the same table. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.

The Indiana State Museum opens three new galleries to the public this week, kicking off a series of renovations museum officials hope will leave visitors with more awareness about the footprint they’re making on the land.

A new gallery at the Indiana State Museum showcases the state’s natural history, with plant and animal props populating a number of dioramas. One section of the room features a group of woodland creatures, including a raccoon on top of something you don’t typically see in a museum display – an overflowing trash can.
