Time goes forward, and we go with it. Imagine if one person in a relationship went forward in time from the then to the now, like everybody else, but the other person went from the now to the then. What would it look like? Probably a lot like The Last 5 Years, a two-person musical from StageWorks Fresno, at the Fresno Art Museum’s Bonner Auditorium until September 16 (or is that from September 7?).

It’s summertime in Reedley, time for the River City Theatre Company to trot out another edition of their Legends series. This year, it’s Legends: Icons, where a group of 10 performers honor famous singers and groups, with some sweet touches of humor added to spice up the tributes.
