    Over the last 30 years, at dozens of shows, a lot of smart, art-savvy people have written about the work of Dorothy Arnold. I'm not going to quote them. But I am going to quote something Dorothy told me on almost every occasion I visited her magnificent Cambridge studio to talk about the possibility of a show and later when I was selecting work for this show.

    Glenda Jackson - a True Inspiration
    Glenda Jackson, the brilliant British actress, is 82 years old. Yet despite being an octogenarian, she won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a play Sunday night. Performing on the stage on Broadway is grueling work - eight shows a week - for anyone, let alone a person who is well beyond what usually is full retirement age (65 years old) for most of us.

Celebrating Pride in Our Communities

Every June, our communities come together to celebrate Pride Month, a tradition that grows stronger every year. In 1989, Massachusetts became the second state to pass a law prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. In 2004, Massachusetts became the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry. Our state has always been a national leader on defending LGBTQ rights, and I’m proud of our communities’ work and reputation as a place that promotes inclusion and acceptance.
