Building a Climate-Resilient Community, Sustainable Princeton

Wednesday April 17, 2019
7:00 PM

Extreme heat, flooding and climate-related health problems - this is what climate science says is in store for the Princeton region. Planning and preparation can help mitigate the worst of these effects, and reduce the economic burden, for dealing with them after the fact. On Wednesday, April 17, join host Sustainable Princeton to find out what Princeton is doing to be climate resilient.

Light refreshments will be served. All events are low-waste. For information about Sustainable Princeton, please visit sustainableprinceton.org

Princeton Public Library, Community Room, 65 Witherspoon Street, Princeton, NJ

Benny & Joon - Paper Mill Playhouse

Wednesday April 17, 2019
7:30 PM

April 4 - May 5

Based on the 1993 film starring Johnny Depp and Mary Stuart Masterson, this new musical is a smart, funny, tender-hearted celebration of love: between children and parents; romantic partners; friends; and, most of all, siblings. The pair at the heart of the show are Joon, a young woman dealing with mental illness, and Benny, the big brother who’s determined to take care of her. When a charmingly eccentric stranger comes into their lives, he throws their carefully calibrated world off-kilter—maybe for the better. Large in emotional scope and artistic ambition, Benny & Joon embraces a difficult subject with warmth, honesty, and wit.
