    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

Although the treatment is ‘modern’, the artist has captured uninhibited joy in her figures and this transmits easily to the viewer. Here are my pictures:

If you feel like getting an uplift, this exhibition is for you. And, its free!
