Sherman concerts move to Pecan Grove

As temperatures finally arrive at their triple-digit resting place for the next two months, Sherman’s aptly named Hot Summer Nights concert series is looking to cool things down. The final four outdoor concerts of the year will be held lakeside at Sherman’s Pecan Grove Park venue, which offers significant accommodation advantages over the city’s Municipal Park, where the first four concerts of the year were held.

Film festival set to roll

Hollywood stars and starlets are flocking to France this weekend as the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival opens.

AC students to celebrate Hispanic culture

‘Fading Gigolo’: A blossoming second career

Fioravante is not, by his own admission, a good-looking man. But in “Fading Gigolo,” a story about a reluctant male escort, he’s played by the tall, angular and quirkily constructed John Turturro, which makes him a statuesque, even striking figure. And the character — a part-time florist who agrees, almost too easily, to pimp himself out to lonely women — also proves to be surprisingly good at his job.

Shakespeare coming to town

Starting one month from Wednesday, Sherman’s Pecan Grove Park will be filled with fairies, the theatrics of Theseus and the puckishness of, well, Puck. The brainchild of Sherman Tourism Manager Diana Adair, the inaugural Shakespeare in the Grove event will bring “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to the park for a series of performances between May 30 and June 8.
