At least once a year, we go with friends to Stratford, Ontario to take in a few plays. You can see what we saw this year and all of them were excellent, especially Macbeth. I loved the singing and dancing in A CHORUS LINE but have to say the narrative seems dated in its presentation. AS YOU LIKE IT had a terrific Rosalind but it is definitely a weaker play from the bard. And way too long at three hours. Still Stratford productions are always original and totally professional. As good as anywhere to my mind.
One of the treats of going to Canada is I always have lunch with Brian Busby and get to hear about what he's up to. And this year, he gave me these two terrific books with intros from Brian and J.F. Norris. What a treat. These Ricochet books can be ordered on Amazon, Abe Books and other venues.. Brian is Ricochet's series editor if you didn't know that.
We always try to bring home a greeting card or small print and this was this years choice from a 90 year old artist.
Oh, and have a happy fourth! I get to march in the parade as a Friend of the Library. Bring out the aspirin.
