            'Sound Of Music' At Palace Theater

            Connecticut has a special ear for "The Sound of Music."

The show hasn't had a Broadway...

                    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. But those glass slippers...

                          The title "Riverdance — 20th Anniversary Tour" is getting a little old.

                          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,...
