For an epic plot twist, look no further than “I and You,” presented by The Public Theatre in Lewiston. The play centers around high school seniors Caroline (Emma Wisniewski) and Anthony (London Carlisle), who get paired up to do a report on Walt Whitman and uncover a secret to end all secrets. “I and You” has been called both “life-affirming” and a “must-see.” It was canceled last year at this time because of the pandemic but has been revived virtually.

Mexican painter Frida Kahlo died in 1954 at age 47 and left behind a body of work that continues to captivate, fascinate, intrigue and spellbind all that see it. Rockland’s Strand Theatre invites you to stream the documentary “Frida Viva La Vida” featuring interviews with Hilda Trujillo Soto, the director of the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City, and Cristina Kahlo, Frida Kahlo’s grandniece. You’ll see historical documents, photographs, clothing and personal items belonging to Kahlo that are kept in the Frida Kahlo Museum’s archives in Mexico City and aren’t part of the public viewing collection. You’ll also see several paintings by Kahlo that are displayed in some of Mexico’s museums.
