Hello, I must be going

Your faithful blogger is taking a week off to recharge the old cultural batteries and I will be running some vintage posts during my absence (they’re not reruns, they’re reprises!).

I should have a lot to report on when I get back, however, including a new book about one of the real “Mad Women” who worked in the New York advertising business back in the 1960s and the controversial new production of “Rigoletto” (above) at the Metropolitan Opera, set in the “Rat Pack” era of Las Vegas, back in the 1960s.

Also have a pile of new DVDs and downloads to go through before I get back.

Have a great week!
