The Apocalypse Is Good For You

Why are we drawn to post-apocalypse stories? One theory is that shows of social chaos and survival prepare us better for the fearful time we live in and that fans of such stories are better able to cope with anxiety.

So turn off the news, cut down on your meds and watch these two very different and exceptional shows.

“The French Dispatch” is a film about France, about art, about youth and love and the 1960s —  and above all about journalism, with Bill Murray, at left in photo, portraying editor Arthur Howitzer Jr. Photo from The French Dispatch

The Great Stephen Sondheim

Stephen Sondheim died last week at age 91. He transformed the American musical. Ranking his musicals seems futile; they are all so different and almost all so good.
