LN’s own design editor ALAN E. BRAINERD and his business partner, MARIA CLIFFORD, were among a privileged few who recently attended the highly anticipated auction of socialite LILLY PULITZER’s estate in West Palm Beach. Brainerd and Clifford, co-owners of Great Estates, were able to secure seats in the second row of the packed auction house for the sale of items from the fashion icon’s Palm Beach compound. Among Brainerd’s acquisitions for the day: three LILIAN MACKENDRICK watercolors and a charming, lidded cabbage box to add to his majolica collection. For her part, Clifford secured Chinese Chippendale cocktail and side tables for her living room.
How did Peter Pan become the boy who never grew up? The story behind the beloved character’s magical journey to Neverland will be unveiled during the Broadway play Peter and the Starcatcher, running today through March 9 at Peabody Opera House. The five-time Tony Award-winning production, which also garnered a record-setting nine nominations in 2012, is the Broadway adaptation of the internationally popular book series, Peter and the Starcatchers, a prequel to J. M. Barrie's classic tale of Peter Pan. Author Ridley Pearson, who has called St. Louis home for the past 14 years and penned the series with author Dave Barry, recently told LN more about the book’s transformation from the page to the stage.

After the spate of awful action movies to hit theaters in the past 10 months or so, suffice it to say, the cinematic bar has been lowered. Really, all I hope for these days is a car chase, an explosion and a likeable good guy who wins in the end. A plot, you say? Well, that would be nice certainly. So, imagine my surprise when I sit down to this: a prequel to the intelligent and wildly successful films based on the Tom Clancy novels. There’s a car chase and an explosion—there also is an extremely well-crafted, interesting and engaging thriller. Who knew?

I’m calling it a boring, obvious pedantic tale better suited for a short story--a very short story--than a two-hour film. So, without further ado.
Story: An ornate chair at stage left and a stately desk at stage right rather starkly adorn the stage for an appearance by one William-Henry Ireland in London in 1826. He’s there to publicly explain how, some 30 year earlier, he fooled the experts and conned the public into believing that he had unearthed a treasure trove of original letters, poems and even a hitherto unknown full-length play by none other than The Bard himself, William Shakespeare.
Ah, the beginning of another year, time to reflect and make resolutions. If you’re looking for suggestions, how about sitting down for family dinners? We’ve all seen the Norman Rockwell painting of the family sitting down for Thanksgiving. Multiple generations are ready to share the turkey. Just how they planned to carve that turkey at the dining room table has always been a mystery to me, but that’s another story. The message that picture sends is one of a family coming together for conversation and sustenance.
