  • People disposed to romantic musings assure us that this wide world holds one perfect companion for each of us, and the sometimes giddy, sometimes crushing, often humiliating and always hopeful search for that ideal “plus one” has been keeping poets, musicians and florists busy since long before a heartsick Troilus “mounted the Trojan walls, and sighed his soul toward the Grecian tents where Cressida lay that night.”

     

  • Body acceptance is a huge issue right now in the news — models are dying from anorexia, childhood obesity is on the rise, and fashion designers are revamping their sizing structures to meet the ever-changing figures of clothing consumers.

Meadows whose edges provided prime timber for Malet and his fellow French-Canadian neighbors, Samuel and Aszine Veznia, Antione Roy and John Riopelle.

  • Being a princess is hard work. Just ask Kate Middleton as she is planning the royal wedding for Prince William. There are glass slippers to be fitted, coaches that keep turning into pumpkins, and royal clocks that strike midnight at inopportune times.

In StageDoor Theatre’s upcoming production of “Cinderella,” audiences (and Kate Middleton) can see how it’s done.
