REMEMBER "TRY TO REMEMBER"? Such the solid, soaring, classic musical ditty. It is a staple of "The Fantasticks," that beautifully straightforward, full-of-romance musical that ran on Broadway for years and years and then decades and decades. For good reason, too: it's all heart. Adding to the all-heart bit is actor Eric McCormack, Will of "Will & Grace"; it's at the Freud Playhouse at UCLA through May 17.
POOL, PUB, PAINTINGS (AND MORE): The 1st Thursday ArtWalk in San Pedro is a delightful strut in a delightful burg. Galleries, lookie-loo-ing, evening light, and salty breezes entrance. Adding to this month's go-out is a pre-poolside party at Dwell at Vue, followed by a swing by The Whale & Ale.
"DEGRASSI" STAR: We know more than a few people who've enjoyed all the many incarnations of the "Degrassi" shows. The drama, right? And the issues. All absorbing. Actor Cassie Steele starred in "Degrassi: The Next Generation," but she's also quite the chanteuse. Catch her show at the Knitting Factory. 7PM doors.
