  • Turning 1930s Abstract Art into Engaging History

    by Bruce Chadwick

  • 1936 Olympics Relays – No Jews Allowed

    by Bruce Chadwick

    Jesse Owens won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympic Game in Berlin.  But this is the story of how Marty Glickman and Sam Stoller, phenomenally fast runners, were kicked off the American 400 meter relay team in the ’36 Olympics because they were Jews.


  • The Marx Brothers Are Back!

    by Bruce Chadwick

    What makes I’ll Say She Is so good is the staging of the play, sequined chorus girls still dancing and prancing in it, and the sensational performance of the magnetic Diamond as Groucho.

    by Bruce Chadwick

    by Bruce Chadwick
