I enjoy live theater, and my husband and I try to get over to the Williamstown Theatre Festival at least once during their summer season. On Saturday, July 10, we saw an excellent production of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Funny! One of the stars was the guy who played an editor on "The Wire" (and a nerdy husband on a casino commercial). Years ago, we saw Christopher Reeve and Terri Garr in a play; the audience was invited to a "cast party." I couldn't work up the nerve to say a word to Christopher Reeve.
Before the show, we stopped at the terrific Clark art museum. A special exhibit through mid-September shows how Picasso was influenced by Degas. It includes many examples of work by both artists that clearly demonstrates the Degas influence.
