Section 2, part 2

(1) Cappy Tosetti:  Hi there……always an interesting read.  Glad to know about Jerry Crouch’s award……wonderful news. It’s going to be fun working with him as stage manager on the upcoming Jubilee production in April.

(2) Hannan Isaacs: A robot is not about to replace your lawyer

(3) Arlene Ditzler:   I recently read a wonderful book–actually 5 CDs (your reference to the Vanderbilts reminded me) The Rainbow Comes and Goes, by Anderson Cooper & his Mom, Gloria Vanderbilt.  It covers a year long dialogue between Mother & Son as they reveal and discover their lives. I really enjoyed how–although they always loved each other–they revealed so much of themselves from the past & they really got to know and understand each other better. You may have read it. Take care.


(5) Roger Clark:   I love the jokes you share in your newsletters.   They are always the first thing I read. This one is a hoot.  Thanks and have a happy upcoming Passover – just around the corner.

Dear friends of mine always have me to their house for the Seder Prayers and Meal.  More, later and thanks for creating a very interesting newsletter.
You da MAN !!!!
(6) Why People Continue to Believe Objectively False Things
(7) Terry Coleman Toporek:  I love your BLAINESWORLD paper…..keep it going…..please!!!!
(8) The best exercise for aging muscles
(9) Carol Seufert: 50 questions to ask your kids instead of asking “How was your day?”
 Note: And then there us this additional question that I received from my friend Karen Marinoff who has run nursery schools and is now also a grandmother:
We mostly say “do you have poop in your diaper???”  Most important!!

Section 12B, PA/NJ events

(1) At Actors’ Net in Morrisville, PA:

The Explorers Club
Written by Nell Benjamin
Apr. 28 – May 14, 2017

In this zany romp, London’s Explorers Club is in crisis: the acting president wants to admit a woman who discovered a lost city. Worse still, the club’s bartender is terrible! Will the intrepid members resolve their dilemma and get a decent drink? And who is that blue-painted fellow at the bar?

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.

(2) At Kelsey Theatre in West Windsor, NJ:
Playful Theatre Productions, the Yardley, PA-based theatre company that produced recent Kelsey Theatre Productions of The Addams Family, Cats, Les Miserables, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, is extremely pleased and proud to bring you the area debut of this unusual new musical!

In this staging, the instrumental orchestration and accompaniment will be provided by the onstage cast. So in addition to the usual complement of singers, dancers, and actors, look for clairvoyant pianists, guitar-playing antagonists, a bride with a clarinet, and a respected local physician armed with a tuba. And fish. A lot of fish. Too many fish, most likely. But it’s too late to give them back.

Big Fish: The Musical ​will run for six performances only, March 31 and April 1, 2, 6, 7, and 8. All shows will be at Kelsey Theatre, on campus at Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, NJ.

Tickets are on sale right at this very moment, unless you are reading this after 5:00PM and before 8:00AM. We urge you to consider ordering tickets in advance, either by clicking: or calling the Kelsey Theatre box office at 609-570-3333 or 609-570-3586.
