Play review missed the boat



OK, let’s have a show of hands: How many think Cary Ginell’s review of “The Lovely Boat” was way too harsh? Ahha. Just as I thought—they agree with me. I found a lot to laugh about in this fun satire. Sandy Pratt’s character was creative and well-crafted and her facial expressions were hysterical. Mr. Bjork and Baboo were the most […]

Let’s talk turkey

Hot Flashes

It was all so simple on Adair Street. For Thanksgiving, Mom ordered the bird from our local yokel, threw it in the back seat of the station wagon next to the barf bucket, scrubbed it (the turkey, not the bucket), stuffed the puppy, slathered it with butter and baked the sucker until it was dry as the scale on granny’s […]

Between 1988 and 2002, Hal Morgenstern, an epidemiology professor at the University of Michigan, conducted a number of health studies to […]

Are you ready for the ‘holi-daze’?

Single Files

Hopefully my loyal “Life in the Single Lane” followers have been able to find me here with my new column head and its new name. Although there was nothing wrong with the old one, the newspaper has been updating the look of all of the headers, and the former name of my column no longer fit the new profile. I […]

Musical offers nostalgia, glamour

PLAY REVIEW /// ‘Follies’


Stephen Sondheim’s “Follies” was a show that signaled a cataclysmic change in musical theater in the early 1970s. A revue taking place in a time-ambiguous setting, it utilizes a story that has no plot. The Conejo Players’ new production of “Follies” is a potent, ravishing piece that wrings emotions from its players as well as its audience. For Arryck Adams, […]
