THREE PLAYS IN ONE: United by the common thread of the history of the early days of aviation, the stories of the Wright Brothers, Charles Lindbergh, and Amelia Earhart are presented as a musical in three separate acts. Shown above is Amelia Earhart (Jenn Collella) in the act that describes Earhart’s role.

Taking Flight With Lindbergh, Earhart, and the Wright Brothers, McCarter Presents U.S. Premiere of Inventive Aviation Musical

Donald Gilpin

Experienced any horror stories at Newark Airport lately? Still able to conjure up any of those romanticized anticipations that accompanied airline trips in years gone by, before the terrorism alerts, the endless security lines, the disappearance of all amenities, and the pervasive worries about environmental consequences? The glamour of air travel in the past century has vanished, but Take Flight, an American premiere musical currently at McCarter’s Berlind Theatre, recreates on stage much of the excitement of the early days of flight, and many of the tribulations too.

Nancy Plum

Princeton Symphony Orchestra ended its 2009-10 season with a taste of what is in the future — new Music Director Rossen Milanov led the ensemble in a clean and well-nuanced program of 19th, 20th, and 21st century music this past weekend. From the audience reaction to the performance in Richardson Auditorium on Sunday afternoon, it is clear that the community has fully welcomed the new conductor in town.
