The best way to describe the Canna Pop-Up event is one part social event, one part education, one part foodie, one part art exhibit, and ALL parts for anyone with an open mind. Pop-up experiences last for only a brief period of time. They are transitory and as a result, exciting and compelling.

The Canna Pop-Up experience will elevate your senses to a higher level. We bring people together ...

'Unmasked' Takes High Energy Look at Andrew Lloyd Webber

No doubt Andrew Lloyd Webber is one of the most prolific composers in recent years. We’ve all heard the music of “Cats” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Evita” and a host of others. Paper Mill Playhouse honors him in this moving tribute

The show is  quite a pistache of well known, and not so well known, creations. It’s fascinating to see clips of ...

'Lost in Yonkers' Confronts Generational Angst

CHATHAM, NJ - The setting is a two-bedroom apartment in Yonkers, NY. The time is 1942. We learn that two young boys, Jay and Artie, are about to move in with their cold,domineering grandmother.

There’s a lot going on in this taut, smartly written play by Neil Simon. Braden Mellina as Jay, the older brother, and Arty (Logan Guvenel) are doing their best to accept this fearful fate. Janet ...

The Adults in the Room

My house was recently designated as being “teen free”.

This is because my youngest two children just turned 20. They are twins. They are both in college, away from home. I only physically see them when they come home on breaks.

Turning 20 means they have run out of youthful brand names. After spending a lifetime transitioning from infants to toddlers to kids to tweens to teens ...

The Heart of a Friendship

To have a friend and be a friend is what makes life worthwhile. ~Unknown

February is the month of the heart, the time when we celebrate love. We buy chocolate, flowers, jewelry, and greeting cards to profess our undying love to that special someone. But, in all the hoopla of the season, perhaps we forget to honor the affection provided by the people that sustain us and enable us to thrive ...

Spend Valentine’s Day with the Love of Your Life...You!

­

I was watching television recently when it happened … I saw the first commercial for the Valentine’s Day diamond collection – you know, the gift that every woman will treasure. As I listened to the music and watched as the camera panned the romantic setting, waves of emotion overcame me like a tsunami. At that moment, in my mind, everyone in the world was in a loving, ...

Chaos: Charles Manson the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties. John 

O’Neill and Dan Piepenbring  (New York: Little Brown, 2019).

Can New Jersey Really Call Itself the Pizza Capital of the World?

New Jersey’s official state Twitter account, @NJGov, set off a “pizza war” a few days ago when — just in time for National Pizza Day — it proclaimed the Garden State the “official pizza capital of the world.”
