Things to Do — By Jacy Meyer on February 3, 2011 at 4:42 am

Definitely it’s a month to stay indoors, and luckily Prague’s museums and theaters assist with heated entertainment options. Be sure to do a couple outdoor wanders however; enjoying Charles Bridge and Prague Castle relatively crowd-free is your reward for visiting Prague in February.

Faces of Truth: At Old Town hall through March 6, internationally known Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý is having his first exhibition in Prague. The photographer is known for his voyeuristic photos taken with homemade cameras from roughly the 1950s-1980s. Tichý never expected to show his work, and many of the photos are haphazardly developed, ripped and in tatters. All this lends an extra feeling of intrusion into the lives of his unknowing subjects. At Old Town Hall.

Queens OFF Broadway: English language theater is pretty hit-or-miss in Prague. On February 18, 19, 25, 26 at Divadlo Kamen, catch “Queens OFF Broadway,” what’s being described as an “amuse’ical based on the hit shows Chicago and Cabaret.” The show revolves around two divas both trying to break their way into show business.

Gotan Project: One of France’s most famous bands, the Gotan Project brings its tango electronica performance to Prague’s Archa Theater for one night only on February 25. Masters of rhythm and atmosphere, the band is a mix of performers from Argentina, France and Switzerland.
