SWEET CHARITY Festival Theatre/Shaw Festival
While musicals can address social attitudes, like “Carousel” and domestic violence,
they can also soften issues, like the prostitution of Fellini’s “Nights of Cabiria” becoming the softened “Sweet Charity” of a taxi dancer who is constantly seeking love while dodging the cash opportunities of the job.

True believers can be very difficult people, that emblematic moral superiority which makes them superior to the rest of us.
Sometimes it’s justified.

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER Royal George Theatre/Shaw Festival
The Shaw Festival’s “Peter and the Starcatcher” is a triumph of style over substance and a great show.
If you think in Hollywood terms and the presence of Disney in originally putting this show together makes that inevitable, this is a prequel to “Peter Pan.”

Locally owned and operated family business, celebrates its 100th year in Buffalo, New York.
Instant Products Company, Inc., manufacturers of Life O’ Wood Furniture Polish, is pleased to announce that their, family owned and operated business, is turning 100 years old this year! Formulated by a chemist a century ago, the secret family recipe of Life O’ Wood Furniture Polish has, for the most part, remained unchanged. All of their ingredients, supplies, and materials are even made in America. The glass bottles are still hand labeled with a paint brush and a cup of glue, when the production manager is not adding and mixing the ingredients in the 180 gallon vat during the five hour manufacturing process. After the polish is made and sets for the night; the labeled bottles are then hand filled with the help of a gravity weighted, one nozzle-filling machine. This of course is followed by the hand tightening of each cap before they are placed in a box, stacked and sealed for shipping. A monotonous and tedious job, maybe, but to Melanie Hachten, the sole person in charge of manufacturing, she likes to think she is giving each bottle the personal attention the customer deserves.
