Feb. 22 & 23rd – “Searching For Sugarman” – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  Searching for Sugar Man tells the incredible true story of Rodriguez, the greatest ’70s rock icon who never was. Discovered in a Detroit bar in the late ’60s by two celebrated producers struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics, they recorded an album which they believed would secure his reputation as the greatest recording artist of his generation. In fact, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, he became a phenomenon. The film follows the story of two South African fans who set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation leads them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door  2/22, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 2/23, 8:00 pm.  www.auburnpublictheater.org                 315-253-6669

Feb. 22nd -24th  – “The Women” - Irene Bisgrove Theatre, Cayuga Community College, 197 Franklin St., Auburn.  This brilliant play has assumed the status of a modern classic. Aside from the novelty of its involving a large cast of women, it is an im-mensely entertaining panorama of our modern metropolitan world from the feminine view-point. The plot involves the efforts of a group of women to play their respective roles in an arti-ficial society that consists of vain show, com-edy, tragedy, hope and disappointment.  8pm 2/22 & 2/23, 2pm 2/24. www.auburnplayers.net  315-702-7832


Feb. 24th – Bruce Cockburn – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  Hear the legendary Folk icon in our intimate 200-seat Main Stage venue.  The best live albums create the illusion of being there, witnessing an artist in a memorable performance. Bruce Cockburn has recorded three previous live recordings: Circles in the Stream (1977), Live (1990) and You Pay Your Money and You Take Your Chance (1997), each critically acclaimed and featuring Cockburn in concert with a backing band. Now, the celebrated musician-activist delivers something new: his first-ever live solo album. Recorded last spring over a series of dates in the northeastern United States and one in Quebec, Slice O Life is a double CD that showcases a cross-section of Cockburn’s finest songs and some of his most dazzling guitar work. The album, produced by longtime associate Colin Linden, also includes one new song, “City is Hungry,” three tracks recorded at sound checks on the tour and some between-song banter that shows Cockburn to be both a quick wit and an engaging storyteller.  Tickets $35; $31.50 APT Members, 7:30pm.  .  www.auburnpublictheater.org                 315-253-6669

Feb. 25th – Phi Beta Kappa Scholar Sir Peter Crane to Speak at Wells – Wells College, 170 Main St., Aurora.  Wells College welcomes Sir Peter Crane, the 2013 Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar, for a campus residency and public lecture titled “The Future of Plants.” The talk will take place at 4:45 p.m. Monday, February 25 in the E.

Feb. 26th – The Makers – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  Women Who Make America tells the remarkable story of the most sweeping social revolution in American history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy. It’s a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, in courts and Congress, in the boardroom and the bedroom, changing not only what the world expects from women, but what women expect from themselves. MAKERS brings this story to life with priceless archival treasures and poignant, often funny interviews with those who led the fight, those who opposed it, and those first generations to benefit from its success. Trailblazing women like Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey share their memories, as do countless women who challenged the status quo in industries from coal-mining to medicine. Makers captures with music, humor, and the voices of the women who lived through these turbulent times the dizzying joy, aching frustration and ultimate triumph of a movement that turned America upside-down.  Suggested donation $5, 8pm.  www.auburnpublictheater.org                 315-253-6669
