Dear Jacquelyn, I have a very good friend who is dealing with a chronic illness. I never know what to say or do when she is having a bad day. How do I show support for her without over stepping my boundaries? I want to be helpful, not cause her more stress.
When a friend or family member is ill, it’s often difficult to know what to say and do. We may feel tongue-tied or blurt out the wrong thing and inadvertently upset the person. But the right words can provide...
Q. My three-year-old grandson has become very aggressive. He hits and slaps his parents and angrily yells at them. I have told his parents that this is not appropriate behavior, and that they need to stop it. He does not try to hit me. He is an only child who has not been in child-care other than family. He does not try to hit me. What guidance can I give my son and daughter-in-law?
The first step, according to panelist Joanne Raftas, should be for the grandparent to talk to the...

All’s Well That Ends Well.
It’s one of William Shakespeare many titles and phrases that have entered the lexicon.
“All’s Well That Ends Well,” primary source material for the phrase, on stage through Aug. 5, brings down the curtain on the 2018 Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival (PSF) at DeSales University, Center Valley.
There is no curtain to bring down or up in the three-quarter round Schubert Theatre. Nor is there a director, scenic designer, costume desiger, lighting...
The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Dreamgirls” is rarely staged by local community theaters because its musical complexity, casting demands and vocal challenges can easily turn into a director’s nightmare.
It’s not so easy on the performers, either.
That didn’t stop Northampton Community College Summer Theatre Director Bill Mutimer from choosing the Motown-inspired musical as the last show of his impressive summer season where “Dreamgirls” continues through Aug. 5....
“Mamma Mia!” Here We Go Again” is really Amanda Seyfried’s movie.
While the movie poster for “Mama Mia! Here We Go Again” lists its stars in alphabetical order, Seyfried stars as Sophie, daughter of Donna (Meryl Streep), who is readying the reopening of Hotel Bella Donna on a Greek island (The fictional Kalokairi. Island scenes in the sequel were filmed on Vis, Croatia, in the Adriatic Sea).
Seyfried, an Allen High School graduate, is effervescent, in good voice and has the...
“Crazy For You,” through Aug. 12, Pennsylvania Playhouse, Bethlehem, is one of those feel-good, toe-tapping shows not unlike the wildly-popular romantic musical comedy movies of the 1930s.
That’s because “Crazy For You,” which premiered on Broadway in 1992, is based heavily on George and Ira Gershwin’s 1930s hit “Girl Crazy.”
Like its escapist Great Depression-era counterparts, the Tony award-winning “Crazy For You” features a fairly simple plot. Audiences know it is going to...
