Playgoers who haven't walked away from a Broadway musical beaming since before they can remember should head over to Times Square for On The Town, the 1944 musical which introduced Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Jerome Robbins.
On the Town with youthful high spirits from the music, empathy from the actors, and comedy firing on all cylinders. "New York, New York" in Pittsfield, well worth the trip up the Taconic.
Becoming Dr. Ruth is not just an ordinary, clichéd pop biog. There is a tale of struggle, perseverance and survival mixed in with all the sex therapy talk. There is, yes, quite a bit of sex talk, including a not-very-dramatic section where she answers questions from dial-in callers with naughty-for-an-old-dame answers.
