The Week in Entertainment

Live: Maria Stuarda, with Sondra Radvanovsky. Wonderful performance.

TV: Of Human Hearts, a really shining example of preachy Thirties movie making. The scene when Lincoln chewed out the young doctor for not writing his mother was priceless. George Washington Slept HerŠµ, a Jack Benny comedy about city folks buying a place in the country. The Royal Tennenbaums, which I do love.

Read: Backstage at the Lincoln Assassination, a look at the actors and stage crew at Ford's Theater that night. Began the All These Shiny Worlds anthology. The Inugami Mochi, a beautiful and melancholy story - or collection of stories - about the bond between a woman and her dog.
