There’s a brief piece on Granville Scott and his appearance in Chamberlayne Actors Theatre’s “Harvey” in this week’s Style. This is also Style’s ‘State of the Plate’ issue, which is always good, particularly for those of you who go out to dinner at places other than Mexico and McDonalds.
I especially like Brandon Fox’s “Whose Umami?” side article in this issue. I relate to the jaded feeling she describes; I get it sometimes regarding theater (though not right now given that the last few productions I’ve seen have been pretty energizing). Unlike Brandon, when I get that feeling, I can’t narrow it down to a specific taste. But next time I DO feel it, I’ll challenge myself to figure out what it is I’m looking for.
