Inasmuch as I eat out nearly every night of the year, I've found a new home at Justine's -- as have many of my neighbors around the lake. Even when it misses, it always pleases. In fact, heading out for some shrimp scampi with mussels and some neighborly chat. A great new addition to the town, county and to nearby SUNY Cobleskill.

- We had a fantastic show tonight with a very responsive house! Laughs on Larry’s first line as George Bailey, “but they’ve got an Olympic size swimming pool underneath the gymnasium floor”, and for the Christmas tree reveal. Full standing ovation right at the top of curtain call!

- We had another fantastic performance tonight! Lots of laughs throughout especially for the Sam Wainwright phone call with the coat rack. Full standing ovation at curtain call!...

Larry has received standing ovations at every performance before and after opening night. What a terrible comment In fact, it was the ONLY performance he has ever given without a standing ovation- in all the time he did it at Cape May as well.

Lest we forget, God of Carnage won for best play in 3 countries and most produced play in America right now. This Tony Award®-winning comedy that the New Yorker magazine called “ninety minutes of sustained mayhem,” offers a close-and-personal glimpse at grown ups behaving badly. We all know them -- and often, sadly, they are ourselves.

Hats off to the ensemble and to Capital Rep for not playing it safe, but including risky, new, material in its season.

The production at Capital Rep is fun and entertaining. This comedy of manners without the manners runs through Sunday, May 27. I suggest that theatre fans see for themselves! For me and the people around me on opening night, it was a hoot!

Don't know why I am seeing these for the first time but the images are arresting and capture the dramas large and small that impact lives forever. Thanks to Jeff Haff and each of the photographers for sharing.

Enjoyed reading this -- and the comments on facebook. Looking forward to seeing it on Sat. afternoon -- before LAF Italiano.
