PLEASE NOTE: this production contains nakedness and adult themes.

What happens when you mix Shakespeare with Story of O, the erotic tome of dominance and submission? You get Peak Performances latest offering, the world premiere of Richard Schechner’s “Imagining O.”

The Alexander Kasser Theater at Montclair State University celebrates its 10th anniversary with the avante-garde work dubbed exhilirating and erotic by the New York Times. Presented by East Coast Artists, a female cast runs the world premiere of “Imagining O”, which is co-directed by Benjamin Mosse. The theater gets a workout as the audience never sits in the house once. An owl (a man wearing a dress and an owl mask) leads the audience throughout the whole theater, including backstage and outside.

Pedestrian crossing signMontclair has a new campaign to make the streets safer. “Drive with Care in Montclair” wants all users of the road feel safe whether they are traveling by foot, bike, car, or other means.

Sparked by an idea of Second Ward Councilor Robin Schlager, the campaign is funded by Partners for Health Foundation and administered through the Township Council’s advisory committee on Pedestrian Safety. The Committee will hold a strategic planning meeting to solicit public feedback on Wednesday, October 8 at 7 pm at the Fire HQ, 1 Pine Street.

The cops don't need to be everywhere at once, the penalties need to be harsh. It is not hyperbole JC. No one is slowing down for a few hundred bucks. 5k or 10k and you can be sure that "speed won't be creeping up" on folks.
