Why I've Changed the Title Of My Features
The good news is that we are coming closer to seeing the live theater coming back again, though worries about safety remain with us. At any rate, CurtainUp is not returning to its former self. Like New York Times columnist Jane Brody, who i've followed for years, I've spent the past year
reconsidering and accepting that I'm at an age when it's no longer possible to do certain things. Topping my list of activities no longer possible is shouldering the editing and reviewing tasks of the formerly full-bodied CurtainUp, as I have for so many years. However, I will continue the less stessful alternative, reporting on theater in my irregularly posted blogs. And do some features about live shows, but with a continued focus on what's available for on screen viewing.
The extensive content, will still be available at this streamlined main page. You can look up a specific item in the "enhanced by Google" box. Though Google will pop up a couple of their own
listings first, if you just keep scrolling down you'll see items pertinent to your search. Below that special search box you will also find lnks to archives of older blog entries and streaming features, as well as some other special topicsCurtainup has covered.
