Hudson Valley locals—hikers and indoorspeople alike—know that with the warmer weather come the dangers of Lyme disease. "The Little Things" shines a personal spotlight on the deadly effects of the tick-borne disease, based on transcribed conversations with the Elone family of Poughkeepsie. In August 2013, 17-year-old Poughkeepsie High School honor student Josephe Elone died after contracting Lyme disease, which tragically spread to his heart. Writer Jeremy Davidson and his wife, director Mary Stuart Masterson, both Dutchess County residents, are staging a theatrical reading at the Bardavon in Poughkeepsie on June 8 at 7pm. A Q&A session with Hyde Park-based Lyme disease specialist Dr. Richard Horowitz will follow. Admission is a suggested donation of $6. (845) 473-2072; Bardavon.org
