It was a great experience being arts editor in Howard County the past 25 years. This was a dream job for a guy like me and I can't believe I'm walking away from it this week with nary a kick nor a scream. I'll always treasure the opportunities the job...
One area Howard County can certainly boast about is its vibrant arts scene, with an abundance of choices that include theater, music and dance companies, as well as free outdoor concerts at Lake Kittamaqundi, Centennial Park and Columbia’s village...
Critic's Notebook: The dramatist who used to regularly scorch the stage with complex stories has let his anti-P.C. rage blunt his work. What in the world has happened to David Mamet? The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Glengarry Glen Ross," a modern...
