For most people on the planet, Halloween will end at the stroke of midnight tonight. Once the witching hour passes and it's then officially November 1, the masks come off, the costumes get packed away and we then turn our attention to all of the other holidays that loom on the calendar. Mind you, I said "most."
David Mamet's political farce November, which ran for six months on Broadway in 2008, gets a crackling revival at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.
Thanksgiving is the "heavy-hitter" holiday of the month, and always requires a little planning. Whether you are hosting the entire family, playing it loose with a group of friends, or you've decided to invite everyone over for a pre-Christmas bash, now is the time to prepare your home for entertaining.
