Reefer Madness, Shadowbox Live, Sunday, May 6, 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.


Reefer Madness Shadowbox LiveThis live musical comedy at Shadowbox Live explores the “dangers” of marijuana in a tongue-in-cheek, campy manner.  The show is based upon the 1936 film with the same intent, but genuine, and it succeeds as a wonderful satire. The show has received wonderful reviews, and it stays in the same vein of Shadowbox Live’s tradition of fantastic live shows. Photo courtesy of Shadowbox Live.


 Franklin Park Conservatory Blooms & Butterflies

Blooms and Butterflies, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, through September 3, 2012


Although Blooms and Butterflies will be running all summer, now is the perfect time of year to enjoy the Franklin Park Conservatory.  The exhibit showcases the life cycle of butterflies as well as highlights the ecological importance of the stunning creature. Hundreds of exotic butterflies emerge from their chrysalises as visitors watch, and then they are released into the Pacific Island Water Garden.  Visitors also can enjoy the gorgeous flowers throughout the Conservatory as they watch the butterflies emerge.  Photo by Roberta Kayne, www.KaynePhotography.com
