Here's Looking at You (And Listening, Too)

With a winter storm bearing down on the Northeast, who wouldn't want to be in Casablanca right about now? Sitting in Rick's Cafe American, sipping a Manhattan as the ceiling fans do their best to keep the breezes flowing in the otherwise balmy air....

Well, if you're able to make it to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center tomorrow evening or the State Theater in New Brunswick on Sunday, you can actually escape to Morocco for a stretch, at a screening of the classic 1942 film Casablanca, with musical accompaniment by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. Under the direction of conductor Constantine Kitsopoulos and music director Jacques Lacombe, the NJSO will perform classics from the film's soundtrack, including As Time Goes By and La Marseillaise. Why? Because of all the cities in all the countries in all the world, this blizzard had to walk into ours. For ticket info, click here.
