Last weekend was filled with strong women, including A Doll's House, Part 2, with Nora returning as played by the excellent Christina Baldwin.
This weekend, Christina's always wonderful sister Jennifer Baldwin Peden takes the stage at Artistry theater in Bloomington in Jason Robert Brown's musical adaptation of The Bridges of Madison County.
Re: great singers this week marks the 100th anniversary of one of the greatest, baritone William Warfield. Treat yourself to this movie version of "Ol' Man River." You're welcome. You can find the entire movie online too.
And remember Federico Fellini's 100th anniversary this week too. It's surprising how little attention it's getting, given Fellini's enormous influence. But the BFI is on it, with this list of 10 Essential Fellini Films. And next month's Italian Film Festival in the Twin Cities includes one of Fellini's first films, LO SCEICCO BIANCO (The White Sheik). And the MSP Film Society just announced their Fellini Tribute in April. A little dolce for your February vita.
