It was a great night out in Portland. We were stunned by the presentation of Papermaker at Portland Stage, impressed with supper at Po’ Boys & Pickles, and very pleased with our room at the Best Western Merry Manor Inn.
We don’t usually insist that you do something in this column, but please don’t miss Monica Wood’s extraordinary and powerful play, Papermaker, at the Portland Stage through May 14. Monica is a Mainer with four wonderful novels, and her autobiography, When We Were The Kennedys, about growing up in Rumford, is the best autobiography Linda and I ever read. And now, it turns out she is a great playwright too.
