    Theater: Mea culpa! I realized that I forgot to tell you anything about recent theater in our region. Last Sunday we went to WVU for their final production of the season, “You Can’t Take it With You,” directed by my old teaching partner, Jay Malarcher. The students did a very good job with the play, though I suspect this is one of those plays that you can’t kill no matter the circumstances. Jay had to miss two weeks of rehearsal due to an emergency medical problem, so others stepped in to help until he could be back in the rehearsal hall. The week before, we had driven up to Pittsburgh to see the Public Theater’s production of ”A Doll’s House, Part Two,” an exciting new play by Lucas Hnath that asks the question, “what next” after Nora walks out on her husband and family at the end of the Ibsen play. I used to love asking this “what next” question when I was teaching many plays. Students always seemed to enjoy trying to figure out where the plot and characters might end up. This new play is 15 years after the events of Ibsen’s play…Nora returns.
