Five plums on Thur, Feb 8, including the $trip at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse

The Nerve Ensemble (see earlier posts on all these stories, please) is a NYC group who's worked with Centenary College drama students for the past month as they developed a musical on the American dream called The $trip. They open a four-night run on Th, Feb. 8.

Also vying for your attention on Thursday eve:

* Nick Spitzer, host of American Routes music program - airs each week on Red River Radio - and major musical folklorist, gives a talk at Centenary on the future of New Orleans.

* Fiddler Amanda Shaw & band at SciPort, along with a wetlands exponent and supper and the terrific Imax movie, Hurricane on the Bayou.

* Hot preview of a cool movie presented by Robinson Film Center at LaBoardwalk cinema.

* Short story writer Jill McCorkle speaks at Caddo Magnet High School. She is the Mary Jane Malone series author.

Bon chance.
