January Events in the Bay Area

If you’re spending time in the Bay Area this month, you can still catch some holiday magic in Palo Alto, and see an award-winning musical in San Jose.  Read below for details on these fun winter events!

Stop by the Museum of American Heritage (MOAH) in Palo Alto this weekend for your last chance to catch Living LEGO-cy this season. The museum, The Bay Area LEGO User Group (BayLUG) and Bay Area Lego Train Club combined forces to create a spectacular holiday display. Visitors to the MOAH can explore a variety of LEGO creations and an operating LEGO train layout. The display highlights scenes in the Bay Area in a 12 by 25 layout featuring cities, farms and suburbs. See if you can recognize any locations and structures!

Living LEGO-cy will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3:30pm. Club members may be present to answer questions. Admission is free for active MOAH and BayLUG members and $2 per person for all others. For more information, please visit www.moah.org.

If you’re in the mood for a thought-provoking musical, head over to the San Jose Reparatory Theatre January 10 to February 3 to see “Next to Normal.”  This emotional musical takes a therapeutic look at coping with sanity. A mother attempts to cope with her mental illness to maintain “normal.” Her affliction threatens to drive her suburban family apart. Together they fight the past and find the courage to face the impending future. “Next to Normal” is a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Awarding winning rock musical, hailed for its powerful accuracy and empathy. The New York Times calls it “a work of muscular grace and power.”
