With the musical Triumph of Love, Dignity Players founder and artistic director Mickey Handwerger offers much lighter entertainment than the group's usual socially conscious fare. Dignity Players arrived on the scene a little more than a year ago with The Exonerated, a drama about six death-row inmates whose names were cleared, followed by The Laramie Project on the killing of gay college student Matthew Shepard. After presenting four dramatic pieces, Handwerger said, he decided to "lighten the mood with Triumph of Love and give everyone permission to laugh."

We, as humans, will never grow tired of such a story. Best-selling historical novelist Margaret George has recognized our eternal appetites and delivered a feast with her Helen of Troy.

AUSTIN, Texas -- No. This is not acceptable. This is not the country we want to be. This is not the world we want to make. The United States of America is still run by its citizens. The government works for us. Rank imperialism and warmongering are not American traditions or values. We do not need to dominate the world. We want and need to work with other nations. We want to find solutions other than killing people. Not in our name, not with our money, not with our children's blood. I rarely use the word "we" because it's so arrogant for one citizen to presume to speak for all of us. But on this one, I know we want to find a way so that killing is the last resort, not the first.

"Triumph of Love," a musical set in a formal garden, blossoms with tuneful music, wit and stylish charm. This Center Stage world premiere is the most sheerly delightful musical bauble that theater has produced since "She Loves Me," more than a decade ago.If the title sounds familiar, that's because Center Stage produced the non-musical version of this 18th-century French comedy by Marivaux in 1993. That version, translated by the theater's resident dramaturg, James Magruder, was pleasant enough.

Middlesex, Vt.--The Cold War is just about history. But if you're gripped by nostalgia for drop drills and teach-ins, peace marches and police actions, this region in the midst of the Green Mountains could be the perfect vacation spot.On our visit here we spent a night at the Camp Meade motel, a cluster of 18 small cabins deployed among the machines of war, including a 155-millimeter howitzer, a 1940 Stuart light tank, a halftrack, a couple of jeeps and an F-86 Saberjet used in Korea. A public address system barks reveille at 7:45 a.m., then broadcasts martial music.
