Top Five Events of the Weekend: ‘A Doll’s House Part 2’, Clint Black & GangstaGrass | Entertainment
By Mike Ward Special Envoy
If your default Netflix and DoorDash weekend plan has become as repetitive as “Groundhog’s Day,” then it’s time to escape the routine. These RVA stage shows can provide just the boost you need to break the cycle and get out there.
“A Doll’s House, Part 2” begins Friday
Before we had luminaries like Betty Friedan and Oprah to disrupt archaic constructs of marriage and gender roles, we had Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece, “A Doll’s House.” Today, 143 years after Nora slammed the door on the status quo, the Virginia Repertory Theater brings the play’s sequel to its November theater. Proof of COVID-19 vaccine or negative test required. Until February 27. Hours vary. 114 W. Broad St. $45-$56. https://va-rep.org/ or (804) 282-2620.
Clint Black at the Dominion Energy Center on Sunday
Maybe you know him from “The Masked Singer”. Or that catchy album you bought at Cracker Barrel (along with a chicken fried steak) years ago. Or maybe his 22 songs that reached No. 1 on Billboard’s US country charts. Grammy winner Clint Black has done it all and he returns to the Carpenter Theater with his wife and collaborator, Lisa Hartman Black, for his “Mostly Hits and the Mrs.” tower. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show starts at 8 p.m. 600 E. Grace St. $45-$129. www. dominionenergy centre.com or (804) 592-3330.
