In our last print edition, we featured our Fall 2010 Arts & Entertainment Guide. It was a phenomenal collection of some of the best arts offerings and activities coming down the line this fall. Yet, there just so many great opportunities — so we’ve decided to double-up and list some more. Check out these listings below, and be sure to check out the Fall 2010 Arts & Entertainment Guide at goqnotes-launch2.newspackstaging.com/8010.

The Real George Washington
The North Carolina Museum of History hosts the traveling exhibition “Discover the Real George Washington: New Views From Mount Vernon” during its traveling tour. Nearly 100 objects, including the sole surviving complete set of Washington’s dentures, will be on display through Jan. 21, 2011. North Carolina has the pleasure of being the only Southeastern stop on the national exhibit tour’s schedule.
9/15-10/2 // CHARLOTTE
The 39 Steps
Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte presents its regional premiere of Broadway’s longest running comedy, the two-time Tony Award-winning “The 39 Steps.” An adaptational mix from the novel by John Buchan and a film by Alfred Hitchcock, “39” results in a hilarious tale complete with an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs (oh my!), missing fingers and good old-fashioned romance.
9/18-11/6 // CHARLOTTE
Open Studio Saturdays
The McColl Center for Visual Art gives community members and art enthusiasts a rare look “behind the scenes,” opening artists’ galleries to the public as they work on their individual masterpieces.
9/25 // CHARLOTTE
Bluegrass and BBQ
Historic Latta Plantation busts out the banjo, fiddle and bass and fires up the BBQ pit for an old-fashioned fundraiser, silent auction, pony rides and more.
10/7-23 // DURHAM
Another regional premiere hits Durham’s Manbites Dog Theater in downtown Durham. Written by Jennifer Haley and directed by Jeff Storer, “Breadcrumbs” is a story of mothers, daughters and memories. A reclusive fiction writer must depend on a troubled young woman to finish her last book, an autobiography, and find her way through the dark woods of her past.
10/10 // CHARLOTTE
Latin American Festival
The Queen City’s annual Latin American Festival celebrates its milestone 20th anniversary with music, tradition, cuisine, arts and crafts, dance, children’s activites and more showcasing the traditions of the Caribbean and Central and South America.
10/27-11/13 // CHARLOTTE

She finds herself leading a double life that quickly accelerates out of control. Wacky and wistful, this life-affirming romantic comedy is filled with laughs, hairpin turns and a story set firmly in overdrive! Buckle up!
