This is the first weekend of the new year and we are expecting snow this weekend. Wait, what?? It will probably just be flurries and most of us from the north and midwest will just laugh it off but still be careful out there. It’s a little quiet this weekend but if you are looking for things to do in Myrtle Beach, we have some suggestions below.
If you are already dreaming of summer, check out the boat show running this weekend at the Convention Center.
The Normal Heart at Theater of the Republic on Friday and Saturday at 7:00 pm and Sunday at 3:00 pm. This incredible drama is about the public and private indifference to the AIDS epidemic and one man’s lonely fight to awaken the world to the crisis. Produced to acclaim in New York, London and Los Angeles, The Normal Heart follows Ned Weeks, a gay activist enraged at the indifference of public officials and the gay community. While trying to save the world from itself, he confronts the personal toll of AIDS when his lover dies of the disease. Originally published in 1985 and celebrated in a passionate and eloquent 2011 Broadway revival, this definitive edition of the play features an updated version of the play.
