Live From the Vineyard: It’s Musical January!

Live From the Vineyard: It’s Musical January!

January 8, 2019

With Christmas and New Year’s receding from view, the first month of 2019 is a time for quiet contemplation—somewhere, probably. But on the Vineyard, musicians are filling the month of January with live entertainment. 

Molly Conole

Last weekend, audiences flocked to three cabaret-style performances of Molly Conole’s Wicked Good Musical Revue at the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse in Vineyard Haven (set list below), and more than 30 performers took part in the year’s first Pot Luck Jam at the Chilmark Community Center. (The next Revue is Feb. 8-10 and the next Jam is Feb. 16.)

This month, Oak Bluffs mainstay the Ritz hosts live entertainment six nights a week:
