  • Theater Review: Restaging Of ‘Souvenir’ Is Perfection In New Milford

    NEW MILFORD — TheatreWorks New Milford’s production of Souvenir is awesome. A night at the theatre I will not soon forget. Written by Stephen Temperley, this comedy with music is immensely entertaining while covering all of the emotional bases.

    This production was originally performed at Westport Community Theatre. Under a new director, Sonnie Osborne, the play is being restaged at TheatreWorks. This was an excellent move.

  • The Top of the Mountain

    I read at www.screenfree.org that May 4-10 was (is still) “Screen Free Week,” and the fur on my back stood up. And that led me to realize how connected we are to screens of all kinds. Turning off the computer screen at work turned out not to be an option, for this all paws journalist. Then I started thinking about other links: Kindle, iPhone, iPads, television… what’s a newscat to do?
