Dear Readers,

I wish all you arts lovers a happy and healthy new year for 2014. May your lives be filled with imagination, creativity, wonder and happiness as you attend some of the events I have listed on this blog for the past 4.5 years.

I hope my reviews have informed you about various productions and prodded you to attend some and see for yourself what all the fuss is about! And I hope that you have spread the word to your family members, friends, and colleagues. You are my best advertisers—and the reason I have none on this blog.

Keep tuned for an exciting 2014! I will feature something for all tastes. Thank you to Sheila Abrams for writing music and dance reviews (and theater reviews when I have been unable to attend). She got me into this business back in 1996 and to her I am eternally grateful to be able to pursue my teenage dream of being a “reporter.”

All the best,

Ruth Ross
