    Apparently, fairytale characters also like to air out their grievances on talk shows.
    Second Street Players' new Street Kids production, "The Ever After – A Musical," is a who's who children's musical featuring some of your favorite fairytale characters on the set of a famous talk show that parodies "The Jerry Springer Show."
    "The Ever After," directed by Susan Newark and Sharon Buchanan, debuts at The Riverfront Theatre tonight. The final show date is Sunday.
    Curious if time really does heal old wounds, famous talk show host Sally Lizzie Jesse Donatello-Griffin invites Cinderella and her middle-aged stepsisters (Drizella and Anastasia) to reconcile with each other after being estranged for 20 years. Snow White and the evil Queen, of course, also appear as guests on the episode. Yet it hasn't been made clear to all of the guests why they've been brought on the show, which creates a lot of tension on stage.

    With an arsenal of originals and tasteful covers, the up-and-coming JohnStone is well-equipped to handle venues of all kinds. The band released its debut album, "Eyes Open," in 2005 and has gone on to win several D.C.

    Tempest will serve up a warm plate of its mouthwatering Celtic tunes at the Cooldog Concert Series in Kenton on Sunday. But before the concert, the magician Kim Z will open the show with some miraculous illusions.
    Based in San Francisco, Calif., Tempest has released 15 acclaimed records, one of which is its latest "Another Dawn," released in 2010. Tempest has also played more than 2,000 gigs.
    After forming in 1988, Tempest has delivered its high-energy folk rock fused with Irish reels, Scottish ballads, Norwegian influences and other world music elements. The gang has also enjoyed an evolving lineup that has allowed the band to grow in creativity.
    Hailing from Oslo, Norway, founding member and lead singer/electric mandolinist, Lief Sorbye, is recognized as a driving force in the modern folk-rock movement. He started Tempest after years of touring and recording on the folk circuit.
