Some fun First State events to dive into this weekend.
1. The dark comedy “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” is considered by many as one of the best American plays.
In it, a college professor named George and his wife, Martha, entertain a young couple at their home over drinks, which turns into fun and games, and more.
Audiences will find themselves on an emotional roller coaster as they witness how far the characters are willing to go to defend the lives they wish they had.
Folks will get to see “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” at the Chapel Street Playhouse, 27 N. Chapel St., Newark at 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday. COST $5 students; $12 seniors; $18 adult. INFO chapelstreetplayers.org or 368-2248.
2. Country outlaw Gary Allan has nearly 10 studio albums under his belt and over 270 million streams.
He’s stayed true to his artistic voice each step of the way, since working up his way to becoming a force in country music.
His latest album is the 2013 project “Set You Free,” which topped the Billboard 200 (Pop Chart), a career first for him.
The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row), producing Allan’s fifth No. 1 song on the country radio chart with “Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain.”
