Crimes of the Heart

Dogwood Dell is a great place to take the kids. However, no matter how
successfully the talented (and underappreciated) folks at the Dell interpret
Beth Henley's bitingly funny comic drama, it won't work for the 5 and under
crowd and only barely for the 12 and under crowd. Given that I'll already be
seeing two shows this weekend, the non-family-friendliness factor
disqualifies this show from my dance plate. Which is too bad: I'd be very
interested to see how the talented actresses in the Dell cast measure up
against the movie version's Dianne Keaton, Sissy Spacek, and one of my
all-time faves, Jessica Lange.
