This month, Performing Arts of Woodstock presents veteran comic actors Audrey Rapoport and James Judd, in “Funny Stories,” a series of humorous vignettes. Former members of the famous Los Angeles sketch comedy group the Groundlings, Judd and Rapoport bring a hilarious array of characters to life in “Funny Stories,” from a harried Republican Town Hall organizer stalling for a tardy Richard Nixon, to a boozy ex-Mouseketeer determined to get through her nightclub act before being thrown out of Disneyland, to the challenges of pledging the sorority Kappa Delta Fang. Wigs included at no extra charge. January 27 & 28 at 7pm; January 29 at 3pm. Kleinert/James Arts Center, Woodstock. $20/$25. (845) 679-7900; www.performingartsofwoodstock.org

The Most Famous Small Town in the World flies its peace signs with pride. A casual observer might be forgiven for thinking this place is resting on its hippie laurels, stuck in time. But quirky, iconic Woodstock, home of high-end creative pyrotechnics for well over a century, gifted and burdened with the legacy of the Iconic Concert that Wasn't There, continues to grow into all that mojo through a constant stream of reinvention.
On February 8, Luminary Media launched the first in a monthly series of community events, titled Chronogram Conversations. Nearly 100 invited guests—community leaders, influencers, and creatives—filled the Lace Mill in Midtown Kingston.
