Plenty of theater goodies for the young ones. Adults will want to head to Heidi’s Jazz Club or Riverside Theatre for some adult entertainment or to area museums for provocative exhibits. BTW, no art sent to me this week, so I will pepper this post with photos from the BREAD AND PUPPET THEATRE, which I visited recently in Vermont.
