    Classics... The very word is an attraction for some but a turn-off for others, which is understandable if an old play is presented as a stodgy museum piece, or used as a springboard for some ill-conceived deconstruction. Fortunately, the finest and greatest theater pieces remain pulsing and pertinent for contemporary audiences through the universality of their characters, stories and humanity.

When is it appropriate to file a noise complaint..and how?

I have neighbors who are having a loud party at 1130pm on Sunday. They often party, get drunk and fight and scream on weekends, weekdays, whenever. It's difficult to hear the movie I'm watching because of their music. Is this appropriate for a noise complaint? How do I go about doing that?

Thanks!

    well, the law is the law, but i have some advice.
    people who sleep lightly or work shifts here in the noisy city have to take care of themselves. get some good window treatments. vegas blackout curtains are not very expensive, and they do block noise and light and help w sleep. if that isnt enough, you can get inserts that add an extra layer of insulation to you windows and block sound.

    sleep hygiene is a thing, and it is within your own power to improve. not that expensive, either.
    come summer and open windows, well......
