Healing With Music And Words

Theater: ‘Between War And Here’

Next week in Norfolk and Hartford we will find these forces performing together in “Between War and Here” a program of music and narration featuring the Celtic music group, Ensemble Galilei, former National Public Radio host Neal Conan and war correspondent Anne Garrels.

Face To Face With Race

Theater: ‘Race’

The title of the play is not nuanced. 
David Mamet’s “Race” which runs at TheatreWorks New Milford through March 16th and will be the premiere presentation of Lloyd Baroody’s ShowTown venture at the Seifert Theater in Salisbury on March 22 and 23, is a gritty, engaging and intense exploration of the topic.
Mamet made certain that theatre goers got the point when he stressed that the “theme is race and the lies we tell each other on the subject.”
And, so it is.

Theater: ‘Terms of Endearment’

‘I deserve this,” Shirley MacLaine said accepting the Oscar for best actress in “Terms of Endearment,”  the 1983 film written by James L.
