          'Cinderella' Brings The Ball To The Palace

          Don't worry, you're not late to the ball. The national tour of "Cinderella" has already parked its pumpkin coach in Connecticut twice — just over a year ago at The Bushnell in Hartford and (after scaling down to a non-Equity production) in April at New Haven's Shubert.

                    A Non-Skier Finds Quaint, Quirky Fun In Vermont

                    NORWICH, VT — I hate winter. Thank you, but I'll pass on the slopes, rinks and trails. The lure of cocoa at a lodge can't compare to a pina colada on a Caribbean beach in February. So the thought of spending some time recently in central Vermont filled me with the dread of winter. I like Vermont,...

                    Don't give in to cabin fever.
