Dance ‘Crazy’ at Playhouse

Friday, July 27, 2018 by DAWN OUELLETTE in Focus

“I got rhythm, I got music, I got my man

Who could ask for anything more?”

Most everyone can hum the tune, but not many know it’s source.

You can see the full song and dance in “Crazy for You,” with classic Gershwin music, which takes the stage July 27, 28 and Aug. 3-5 and Aug. 9-12, at the Pennsylvania Playhouse, Bethlehem.

“Crazy for You” is the tap-dancing filled tale of a stage-struck New Yorker who falls for a gal he should not get close to. The musical has had audiences dancing in their seats since its debut on Broadway in 1992.

Respectfully Yours: Casual dining

Friday, July 27, 2018 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Focus

Dear Jacquelyn,

I’ve noticed that many men are wildly, and often sloppily under-dressed when out on a date or to dinner with their dress-to-impress date, fiancée or wife. And what is it with men wearing their shirt tails out? Is it to hide their beer guts? A shirttail out resembles a dress on some men. Few realize how ridiculous they look. Furthermore, what happened to dressing up to go out to dinner?

Dear Reader,
