Shotgun Players production of Hamlet

Celebrating their 25th anniversary season, Shotgun Players will be presenting Hamlet opening March 31st. Looks like another great production idea, as the actors will not know what part they will play until 5 minutes before showtime.

Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953

IMG_6071Did you know that Sylvia Plath dreamed of being a fashion editor at “the intellectual fashion magazine” Mademoiselle? She did manage to be chosen out of many young women from Smith College to be one of the special guest editors during the summer of 1953. This is a fascinating book by Elizabeth Winder about what the fashion world was like at this time in New York City, and to be a young woman in that environment. It’s a part of Sylvia Plath’s life that most do not know about. I highly recommend this book you.

DO NOT MISS THE CURRENT EXHIBIT AT THE LEGION OF HONOR: It was wonderful!

This current exhibit has a perfect range and amount (not too many and not too little) of clothing that represents the often neglected history of important American designers. Most of the designers included in this exhibit changed the course of not only how American women dressed, but also influenced European designers as well.
