VOLUME 14, NUMBER 2 -- October 8, 2007

- Theater review -

“Miss Daisy” an endearing, gentle ride

“Driving Miss Daisy,” playing at TheaterWorks in Hartford, is quite a remarkable ride for not only the main characters, but the audience too.

The plot centers on the play’s namesake, a white Southern woman by the name of Miss Daisy Werthan, and her relationship with her black driver. They lived in Georgia during the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s.

Springsteen and the E Street band cast a spell in Hartford with Magic tour

HARTFORD, Conn. – Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are back. After four years apart, the band had one goal in mind: to rock the stage in Hartford.

The band’s Oct. 2 performance at the Hartford Civic Center premiered their new hit album, Magic, and opened their new tour.

My dad’s famous guitar friend works his own Magic with an onstage tour

I’d never been to a rock concert before, so I didn’t know what to expect when my parents told me that we were going to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band open their tour.

Don't miss The Tattoo's interview with guitarist Nils Lofgren

I was really excited, though, to see Bruce in action, and I told all my friends about it before the show.

What made it even better was the possibility of an up-close encounter with my dad’s good friend, guitarist Nils Lofgren, who plays in the E Street Band.

I hoped for a chance to talk with Nils, and I got it.

Cow parade comes home

Have you herd the moos?


There’s an invasion of colorful, even psychedelic, cows throughout the center of this mid-sized, upscale Connecticut town.


People are stampeding like cattle to see the return of the Cow Parade, an international public art show on hooves.


For the Cow Parade, local artists use a variety of materials to transform the nearly life-size figures of standing, grazing and reclining cows into fab-bull-ous creations, each with its own personality and style.
