Shorts #4

Shorts or 5 Things to Know This Week is a weekly posting that features short blurbs on interesting topics related to film and theatre studies, research and resources, theatre goings on in New York City, lots of library-related news and other stuff.

1.  NEW YORK THEATRE GOINGS ON  --  The Testament of Mary is indeed a daring play. I think seeing it during this past Easter weekend truly intensified the drama. The play was written by Colm Tóibín and stars Fiona Shaw as Mary. Her performance is riveting. 

2. Happy 50th Anniversary to General Hospital.

3. Less than one week until Mad Men returns on April 7th!

4. Check out the new DVD -- Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away.

5. The New York Times reports that the Oregon State Hospital in Salem is now the Museum of Mental Health. The movie, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, was filmed there. Click here for the article.
