Randee Mia Berman

Fast forward about 3,000 years to Israel Horovitz' play Out of the Mouths of Babes. In this striking Cherry Lane Theatre production (www.cherrylanetheatre.org), the Babes are adults. Out of their mouths comes wit..with claws. Picture four sassy, savvy, snarky babes -- all ex-wives and lovers of the same beloved Professor -- clumped together in one Paris apartment for his funeral.

We can't force someone to forgive. Therefore, the road to forgiveness may also involve understanding the person who has harmed us. This requires starting off on a journey that may entail a close examination of the person we need to forgive. The journey can be long and torturous.

Stage Door: The Judas Kiss

Oscar Wilde's story - his rise and fall - remains fascinating. His plays were the toast of London and his 1895 masterwork The Importance of Being Earnest, was being staged at the time of his scandalous trial.

One of the most celebrated authors of his time, Oscar Wilde spent two years in jail for "gross indecency." When given the option to flee London or go into exile in Paris, he preferred waiting for the police while dining on lobster at the discreet Cadogan Hotel.

Why America Needs a New Theory of Fame

The time is long overdue to re-imagine the very concept of fame. Enough with the vapid "fame for the sake of fame" corporate manufactured "stars," who appear out of nowhere to hog up the public airwaves and divert attention from the vital issues threatening our democracy and planet.

They exist in every religious tradition. I'm not talking about fundamentalists. I'm talking about people who believe they're called to turn the spirit and idealism of a religious founder or reformer into institutions.

Culture Is Only A Thin Apple Peel Over A Glowing Chaos

All great artists which I call artistocrats have a constant lifelong desire to communicate vitally important messages. But sometimes a fervent desire to be understood and to convey an important message looks like a declamation of a Shakespeare's Sonnet to a hungry dog.

Married or Dating--Be Yourself

Marcia Naomi Berger | Posted 12.07.2015 | Women
Marcia Naomi Berger

Knowing who you are also means being aware of your feelings. We need to recognize and be willing to share our emotions if we want a truly intimate relationship. Sharing feelings makes us vulnerable, which can feel risky, especially if we grew up in family that discouraged expressing them or labeled some feelings as right or wrong.

6 Reasons It's Good Some People Don't Like You

When someone condemns our work, comments unkindly on our appearance, judges our parenting style or disapproves of any of our actions, it is a pure and total reflection of them, not us. Take relief and comfort that a critic's words often have nothing to do with you at all. Here are six reasons critics can be a good thing in your life:

8 Reasons I Keep a Daily Diary

Timothy Merrill | Posted 08.07.2016 | Religion
Timothy Merrill

Of all literary genres, the diary is the least read and most uninteresting, with possible exception of Wilde or Anais Nin. A nutrition label on a loaf of pumpernickel is more exciting. So if no one is going to read your diary -- and really, you don't want them to -- then, why write at all?
