After having to scramble this spring to cancel and reschedule hundreds of shows due to COVID-19, the Ridgefield Playhouse is back to doing what it does best: hosting live shows. As of right now, that means outdoor shows with socially distanced seating. Music fans starved for live entertainment, as opposed to video streams, will want to note this weekend’s double bill under a tent on the field adjacent to the Playhouse.
The weekend, highlighting Connecticut-based performers who have garnered national attention, kicks off on Friday, Aug. 28, at 7 p.m. with Guilford’s own Nick Fradiani (and winner of TV’s “American Idol” in 2015) and The Alternate Routes, based in Bridgeport, best known for hit folky-rock songs like “Nothing More,” “Stronger” and their newest, “Safe Haven.”
