a very brief note, all i have time or energy for at the moment. miriam margolyes, an actor much better known in england than the US, has recently finished a british tour of her one'-woman show, dicken's women. she began her US tour here in boston for one night on wednesday. it wasn't well publicized, and i was lucky that a friend of mine knew about it. it was....pick your superlative--splendid, brilliant, grab-your belly funny and then painfully touching. i so nearly didn't see it, and it is so fine, i wanted anyone who might be interested to be aware, if it does come to your area.
