HEY THERE, GEORGIE BOY
If you ask us, everyone is focusing a bit too much on the wrong George W. The dance-theater artist Ann Liv Young brings us back to our nation's roots with The Bagwell in me, a solo performance piece with original music focusing on the "life and loves" of president number one, George Washington. So what kind of guy was G.W.? "I didn't know him, and I'm not going to speculate," says Young. "I am retelling a story based on fact and fiction. The fact is stated to be fact, but I guess the fact could also be fiction, since I wasn't there when it was recorded." Since we can't even tell what's fact or fiction about our current administration, we'll take it.
