|A Look At East Lynne Theater Company's 2021 Season|
(CAPE MAY, NJ) -- As the award-winning Equity professional East Lynne Theater Company prepares for its upcoming 41st summer/fall production season in Cape May, NJ, it continues to produce virtual events for its YouTube Channel, most of which will be free and can be viewed any time during a limited run in the comfort of one’s home. ELTC strongly recommends connecting the computer to the flat screen TV with an HDMI cable so the show can be seen on a larger screen with better sound. Some televisions have easy access to YouTube, in which case, most of ELTC's virtual shows can be viewed directly on the "big screen."

(NEW YORK, NY) -- The York Theatre Company sustained major damage from a water main break that occurred early on January 4, 2021.

|John Fogerty Releases New Song "Weeping In The Promised Land"|
John Fogerty has released "Weeping In The Promised Land," a poignant reflection on 2020 and how the events of this past year have altered life as we've always known it. Coming from a songwriter who has captured the pulse of the nation time and again through enduring classics like "Fortunate Son,” "Bad Moon Rising” and “Have You Ever Seen The Rain,” Fogerty reckons with the isolation, loss, division and hardship that were all too common this past year. The new song ultimately serves as a moving tribute to those who have been victims of the pandemic and those who have suffered through prejudice and injustice, with an eye on brighter days ahead.
