Friday, April 5
‘The Strange But True Story
of Hazel McNally’
7:30 p.m.
The Acting Ensemble Stage Company
Studio 217
217 S. Michigan St. , South Bend, Ind.
(574) 807-0108

This is based on the 1922 South Bend trial in which McNally was accused of murdering her twins, which she claimed were baby dolls.  This sounds fascinating!

Gun Metal Black

The Livery
190 5th St. , Benton Harbor

Three years after the bombastic debut concert that spawned a live DVD and CD release, Marcus Robinson brings back Gun Metal Black. Improvisational jazzfusion comes alive again at the Livery, this time including trumpet player Herb Smith.

Sunday, April 7
South Bend Record & CD Collector’s Show
11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Comfort Suites
52939 Route 933, Mishawaka, Ind.
(574) 255-2227

This one’s pretty self explanatory, so take a trip if you want to find those out-of-print release Smiths vinyls. Never been to the Comfort Suites, but with 20,000 pieces of vinyl and 56 dealers, I assume they have a ballroom. If it’s in a single suite and a guy with grillz and neck chains smoking Swisher Sweets greets you at the door, find something else to do.

Wednesday, April 10
‘The Godfather’
7 p.m.
Cinemark Classic Series
Cinemark Movies 14 — Mishawaka
910 W. Edison Rd., Mishawaka, Ind.
(800) 326-3264

Seeing “The Godfather” digitally restored on the big screen should be a great treat. Plans to release “The Godfather II” to follow.
