As does the SundayArts blog from New York’s excellent PBS affiliate WNET. And TheaterMania, too. If you can’t go to HERE to see the show, check out the video preview.
>>>Mad respect for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which, on the heels of its brilliantly curated Cezanne exhibit, took the Golden Lion award at the Venice Bienniale.
