Preparing for a tropical getaway, so I am playing this 1988 CD I bought in Oahu in 1991 when I was with the Uhlers Ski Club. Time to get back there. Photo with my Yashica SLR, 3M film.
AEROBICS PARIS STYLE
Something different was added to Silver Sneakers aerobics today at the YMCA when instructor Sarah provided Edith Piaff singing “LaViene Rose.” On a day when I thought rigor morits had set in, this was enough to help me forget that it’s only 9 degrees outside today.
ARTY DORMAN, THEATER CRITIC
Growing up in New York in 1965, Arty Dorman saw a summer production of “The Music Man” with Anita Bryant as Marian and Gig Young as Professor Harold Hill. Given that Gig was gay and Anita was homophobic, that was indeed a strange bit of casting. Arty spoke Sunday at the Or Emet Jewish Humanist Congregation meeting in St. Paul. He recommends the play “The Humans” which won a 2016 Tony Award. Dorman expanded his love of theater to become the lead Twin Cities critic for www.talkinbroadway.com
