Five things to do this weekend: April 20-22

“Berlin; or, The Part of You That Wants It: A Musical Comedy Love Story (Written by Accident)” world premiere at 8 p.m. Friday and 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Central Square Theater, 450 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square. General admission is $35.

    Five things to do this weekend: April 20-22
    Women in Comedy Festival all weekend at venues throughout Cambridge, Somerville, Medford and Boston. Ticket prices vary.

It’s a yellow kind of day! 💛 The artist, Dewing, created a striking contrast between the precisely modeled face and arms, and the feathery brushstrokes of the dress. Isabella hung the painting in the Yellow Room, a setting perfectly attuned to the hue of the woman’s dress. Image: Thomas Wilmer Dewing, A Lady in Yellow, 1888, oil on panel.
