He believed in the interdependence of man and nature, independent thinking, education through discovery, and he rebuffed organized religion. (more...)

BWW Review: A Poignant Memoir Takes the Stage with HOLIDAY MEMORIES at Avant Bard

Like a sepia-toned photo from the pages of a family album, Avant Bard's production of HOLIDAY MEMORIES evokes seasonal joys untouched by commercialism and cynicism - two mortal enemies of the true spirit of Thanksgiving and Christmas, in my opinion.
