Only 90 minutes to Williamstown, Degas and Picasso

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.

(I am not finding the proper place to post this, so i am doing so here. Feel free to find its proper spot)

I just emailed this to your blogger Tom Lewis, and would appreciate your reposnce as well.

TO: Tom Lewis

I ask the following Q in all seriousness....

RE: your Saratogian blog:

In the interest of fair play and "being balanced' in delivering opinions from across the spectrum, why is there not a blog witten by a COMMUNIST to offset the blog by Mr Lewis? A far right opinion should be offset with a far left one.

In other words: why is the ultra-right suddenly given a place at the table, but not the ultra-left?


(and please, spare us the "mainstream media is left!" garbage, Mr Lewis)
