I'm still on a little getaway this week, so please forgive the lazy blogging. Instead of dazzling fresh stuff, I'll just direct my Web-only readers to some items they might otherwise miss in Friday's paper.
For those of you looking to make your own getaway, consider the attractions of the 14th Virginia Arts Festival, which goes on well into May. I've never made it there myself, but I've heard great things about this extravaganza from colleagues over the years, and the 2010 lineup is full of things that should be well worth the trip.
Meanwhile, in our area, if the idea of clever wordplay is music to your ears, consider the bright revival of "On the Verge" at Rep Stage. Eric Overmyer's play is like an unsung opera, with arias, duets, trios and the occasional quartet, all spun into a comic, witty, literary fantasy. The production is a visual winner, too.
