Opera Theater SummerFest presents an international classic by American master composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim with some of musical theater’s favorite songs and scenes. “Send in the Clowns”, “Every Day a Little Death” and “A Weekend in the Country” are among the numbers woven into the musical version of “Smiles of a Summer Night”, Ingmar Bergman’s story of lovers whose affairs converge during a visit to a country estate. Fully staged, “A Little Night Music” is directed by Scott Wise and accompanied by the SummerFest Orchestra, conducted by Walter Morales. SummerFest presents this Sondheim treasure Sun., July 7 at 2:30 pm at the Twentieth Century Club, 4210 Bigelow Blvd., in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Oakland (15213). Patrons are also invited to a Liebeslieder Waltzes during brunch at 1:00 pm and a Piano Bar at 4:30 pm. Tickets and information at: www.otsummerfest.org or call 412-326-9687.
President Obama has proposed making more Americans eligible for overtime pay. Salaried employees who make up to $50,400 per year would be paid over-time for hours worked over 40 hours in a given week. The increased salary ceiling would bring overtime benefits to about 15 million more workers. Republicans argue that by increasing the overtime threshold will discourage companies from creating jobs, and slowing economic growth.
