ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Tomorrow is Halloween, and this year’s edition is coming complete with a blue moon.

But the real scare of the weekend comes early Sunday morning, when Daylight Saving Time ends, leading to a 5:07 p.m. sunset that night.

On the plus side, those without young kids will gain an extra hour of sleep. Just make sure to check your smoke detectors and be extra careful on local roads and trails.

Here are the most-read ARLnow articles of the past week:

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
