A new exhibit, “Native Americans: A Diverse & Evolving History,” opened recently at the Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum, Allentown.
“The history of American Indians is shrouded in folklore and stereotypes from Western movies,” says Joseph Garrera, Executive Director of the Museum. “Much of their history has been written by the cultures that conquered them and took their lands.”
Museum officials contend that the new exhibit humanizes Native Americans, portraying them as people...
To begin with, to paraphrase Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” Eva Peron was dead. And yet, not unlike the Ghost of Jacob Marley, the spirit of Eva Peron is still with us.
The musical, “Evita,” begins with the funeral of Eva Peron, and then rewinds magnificently, fascinatingly and somewhat shockingly through the twists and turns of her youth, cabaret success, and movie actress fame to that of First Lady of Argentina at age 27.
The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival (PSF)...
It’s the 50th anniversary of “Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical.”
“Hair” was post-hairspray. Young women let Aqua Net on the shelf, ironed their hair, or went Afro. Young men let Brylcreem on the shelf and skipped the barber.
“Hair” was pre-”Hairspray.” It set the stage for other non-book Broadway musicals (“Company,” “Godspell,” “Pippin”).
“Hair” is of a time, a time that now seems long ago, naive and quaint. It not only seems long ago. It was long ago: a half...

“My Cousin Rachel” should appeal to fans of “Masterpiece Theatre” and classic Hollywood movie melodramas such as “Wuthering Heights” (1939) and “Rebecca” (1940).
This should come as no surprise since the movie, “My Cousin Rachel,” is based on the book by English novelist Daphne Du Maurier (1907-1989), author of several novels adapted for the big screen, including “Rebecca,” a 1940 best picture Oscar recipient (of 11 nominations) directed by Alfred Hitchcock that starred Laurence...
Q. I spent many hours at my computer and got this awful pain in my forearm that made me stop. Do you think I have carpal tunnel syndrome?
I’m not qualified to diagnose, so I suggest that, if that pain persists, you see a physician and get it checked. However, I can tell you about carpal tunnel syndrome.
