A comedy show at the Capitol Theatre and stories at Tarrytown Music Hall are some of our favorite reasons to get out of the house this month.

March 27

Blackout

There is quite possibly no one as adept at the art of the rant as Daily Show alum Lewis Black. The Grammy-winning funnyman has two HBO standup specials, as well as a dozen comedy albums to his credit, and is known for his work on films such as Inside Out and Accepted. Drop by Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre on March 27 if you’d like to see this baron of brash in the flesh.

Carnival Pleasures

The art-historical tradition of the carnivalesque is brought to vivid life in a new exhibition at the Katonah Museum of Art, on show from March 13 to June 26. Constant Carnival: The Haas Brother in Context pairs the work of famed artists Nikolai and Simon Haas, with sculptures and drawings of both historical and contemporary value, to investigate the liberation, color, and societal fluidity epitomized by the carnival.

Cohn Head

If you still find yourself humming the Grammy-winning tune “Walking in Memphis” every now and then, why not take time out to see the guy who crafted the hit? This month, singer-songwriter Marc Cohn will be taking the Mamaroneck stage for a performance of his concoction of blues, soul, and gospel at The Emelin Theatre.

Off to See the Wizard

Those who long for the days of watching great American films flickering on a movie screen need pine no more. This month, join Dorothy and Toto as they discover The Emerald City in the immortal 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Part of the Jacob Burns Film Center Kids Series, this Golden Age offering is cherished by film lovers of all ages and has endured as a timeless Hollywood classic, starring the iconic Judy Garland. JBFC filmgoers are invited to step back in time to re-experience this Academy Award-winning masterwork the way it is truly meant to be seen.

Shadow Play

The concept of darkness versus light and its potent symbolism are tackled in this probing exhibition at the Pelham Art Center. Shadows features six artists addressing the thematic and artistic significance of shade, utilizing various media to interrogate what in society is deemed worthy of being seen and what is stowed away in the darkness.

With her 2007 hit “Bubbly” still among the bestselling digital tracks in history, Colbie Caillat remains a musical mainstay, having sold nearly six million albums. Now a celebrated singer-songwriter with a pair of Grammy Awards to her credit, Caillat is hitting the road this month and stopping by The Ridgefield Playhouse for an evening of her soul-soothing melodies.
