Not Just Another Cold Day in Feb.

“I was nauseous and tingly all over. I was either in love or I had smallpox.” -Woody Allen

 

February has never been one of my favorite months. I mean, the major winter holidays have passed and, at this point, all I really want is for it to be warm again. I’m sick of shoveling snow and doing the one-legged Watusi on icy sidewalks, causing back and neck injuries that I won’t feel for another two days.  And, personally, when I get cold it takes forever for me to warm up again. All I want to do is camp out in front of the fireplace and wait for someone to tell me it’s safe to go outside again.

“Jackie Kennedy said if you bungle raising your children, I don’t think anything else you do matters very much,” Sherry (Katie Puglisi) smugly tells “Mama” (Michelle Hand). The irony is that Sherry’s teenage daughter, Natalie, (Berklea Going) cuts herself to relieve stress and her son depends on Ritalin. Natalie herself has been through a dizzying array of “medications.”

Review: Avalon’s “The Price”

Front_Panel_2_Season_2

“Everything has a price,” is one of those old sayings we’ve all heard. Arthur Miller uses it as the basis for this play, but he doesn’t stop with the easy cliché. Instead, he delves deeply into the psyches of two estranged brothers, their shared history, and their current circumstances to examine whether the price we pay is a fair one. The balance shifts throughout. In the beginning it appears that Victor (John Contini) has paid too high a price for doing the right thing, while his brother, Walter, (Peter Mayer) got off easily by being selfish.

Shortly before my Grandma Andoe passed away she began spilling the family secrets, including stories about the womanizing of my late Granddad, Sam Andoe. He was a tall, confident, and good looking man
who worked in the shipyards and drove trucks. Legend is he had women all over the place. It was a  Thanksgiving when my ninety year old grandma unexpectedly decided to let the stories rip.
