Clybourne Park

Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, 2:30 p.m. Continues through Sept. 6

Many of us don’t go a day without seeing something in the news about race relations. These issues have been going on for decades, as can be seen in Bruce Norris’ Tony Award-winning Clybourne Park, which debuts at Mad Cow this weekend. The play begins in 1959 as a white, middle-class neighborhood called Clybourne Park is shaken by new black residents. Fast-forward 50 years and Clybourne Park, which has become predominantly black, is now dealing with potential gentrification. Follow the community as their story unfolds with personal histories intertwining and prejudices colliding along the way. Floridian actress Trenell Mooring, who has appeared in 10 other shows at Mad Cow, including Donald Margulies’ Shipwrecked! An Entertainment and Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker, is set to star in the monthlong run. – Caroline Fernandez $24.25-$36.75

Happy Hour Tour of the Alfond Inn

First Wednesday of every month, 5:30 p.m.

In the eternal quest to gorge your eyes with beauty while sticking to a diet budget-wise, the monthly free tours of the Alfond Inn’s collection of contemporary art are a vital new activity. You can wander in and look at the art on your own any time, of course – donated by Rollins alums Barbara and Ted Alfond, the Alfond Collection is an ever-growing body of works by significant contemporary artists, most of which are installed at the hotel (though pieces are rotated fairly often, and sometimes they make their way into shows at Rollins’ Cornell Fine Arts Museum). But on the first Wednesday of each month, CFAM staff lead a tour of the art, giving insight and background into the works scattered throughout the five-floor hotel. Conveniently, it’s scheduled right around happy hour, and the hotel just so happens to have a cozy little bar offering happy-hour specials … the perfect place to discuss your new knowledge over a drink or two. – Jessica Bryce Young free
