  • New England Pulls Out The Stops For Christmas

    New England Pulls Out The Stops For Christmas

    When it comes to Christmas, no place does it better than New England. With picturesque town greens and old-fashioned Main Streets, sparkling cities and quaint seaside villages, it's hard to find a spot that doesn't look like it's straight out of a Currier & Ives drawing. To experience the grandeur...

  • Old Sturbridge Hires Tinsel The Talking Christmas Tree

    Old Sturbridge Hires Tinsel The Talking Christmas Tree

    Old Sturbridge Village is a celebration of times gone by, a period-perfect re-creation of an 18th- to 19th-century village. But among the village's attractions this holiday season is a contemporary treat: a Christmas tree that talks, sings, recites poems and answers questions. Last weekend, on...

      • Yale Rep's Risk-Taking 'Seven Guitars' Hypnotic

        Yale Rep's Risk-Taking 'Seven Guitars' Hypnotic

        I've become wary of productions of August Wilson plays that last less than two and a half hours. This singular playwright's words need room to breathe. The music needs to rise up organically. The plot needs to unfurl gradually, lest it seem forced or melodramatic. Timothy Douglas' hypnotic, risk-taking...

      • A Grand 'Wicked' Fills The Stage At Oakdale

        A Grand 'Wicked' Fills The Stage At Oakdale

        There's no rest for the "Wicked." The national tour of the long-running Oz-stravaganza bobs, weaves, flies, glimmers, and engages in swordplay with wands and brooms. This is the show's fifth time in Connecticut, and the first time it's played somewhere other than The Bushnell. The Oakdale in Wallingford,...
