It takes only a moment with Tony Award winning actress Cady Huffman to appreciate why “Hello, Dolly!” remains one of America’s most enduring and endearing musicals. Huffman stars as Dolly Levi in “Hello, Dolly!” now playing at Theatre By The Sea. Huffman took a break from rehearsing to talk with The Voice & Herald.

Portrait of Toni  Stopler, 1924, from Alison Rose’s book, Jewish Women in Fin de Siècle  ViennaPortrait of Toni Stopler, 1924, from Alison Rose’s book, Jewish Women in Fin de Siècle ViennaWHEN MY toddler, Ari, asked if the “Christmas man” was coming to our house, I felt obliged to teach him about difference.

His collection of poetry, center, covers more than four decades of his verses.NEW YORK (NEXTBOOK) – When Hollywood scouts look for new books to turn into screenplays, they probably don’t spend much time with the catalog of Brandeis University Press.

That the hero of the story is Yehuda Amichai, Israel’s greatest poet and one of the major writers of the 20th century, is just the icing on the cake.

CLIFFORD ODETS’ Awake and Sing! is an American classic. And, it’s a story with refreshing relevance to today’s tough economic times. Written in 1935, it follows the struggles of a Depressionera Jewish family in the Bronx. They are a classic New York working-class Jewish family of the era. They talk about the war; they complain about how things aren’t like they used to be; they whine about the importance of having (or not having) a dollar.
