Stories you may have missed over the weekend
Nothing like a holiday weekend to provide a good excuse for getting away from routine. Me, I defied the rules of the cyber road and forgot all about blogging and twittering and Facebooking (for shame!). I'll soon get right back into the fray, I promise.
Meanwhile, here are some things you might have missed if your holiday included a break from reading the paper -- my reviews of "Chess" in a new, highly entertaining revision from Signature Theatre (this may be the best chance the not-so-charmed musical has had yet to reclaim the limelight); the play "Travels with My Aunt" in a delectable new production from Rep Stage; and a look ahead to the Baltimore Symphony's new -- emphasis on new -- season.
There. That should keep you occupied until I can think of something fresh and brilliant. Well, maybe not that long -- no one has that much time.
