THEATER REVIEW: “The Dixie Swim Club” – five women in the water of life

Once upon a time, in a faraway galaxy called Youth, five Southern teenaged girls were members of the same swim team, and apparently the camaraderie and group spirit was so binding that they agreed to meet every August for a long weekend at a beachside cottage on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

The Light in the Piazza

The Light in the Piazza

The Malaga Cove art show and sale is here for spring and summer Perhaps it’s the fountain and the weathered statue of Neptune, located a few dozen yards away, but there’s something slightly mythological about the 30 or so artists emerging each spring to exhibit their wares on the green lawn in front of Malaga […]

THEATER REVIEW – “Cinderella”

Even so, it’s a timeless fairy tale, and it’s been dusted off for a new […]
