Hildegarde in Concert

Just came from the Dittmans' one-woman Hildegarde Dolson show at the Barrow Little Theater, and if you missed it tonight, you have a chance to catch it tomorrow. It's a quick introduction (or re-introduction for those of us who already knew who she was) to one of Franklin's most successful native daughters, a midcentury writer with a keen eye honed in the small town and refined in NYC. Not as domestic as Erma Bombeck, not as pissy as Dorothy Parker, not as political as Art Buchwald, not as berserk as Dave Barry-- she has her own special voice and Mike's script paired up with Amy's delivery help bring her alive.

It's a mere five bucks and just 45 minutes out of your life. You should go!
