As far as the Carlstrom family of Columbus is concerned, “love is still a worthy cause.” That’s the name they’ve applied to a community coffeehouse concert they have organized for Friday at 7 p.m. at the Columbus Country Club.
When it comes to bargains, the Mississippi University for Women Department of Music and Theatre can’t be beat. For a mere quarter, they are offering Brando, red beans and rice and an evening of Tennessee Williams Friday, Feb. 20, in Cromwell Communication Center on the MUW campus. As a prelude to its production of Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie” Feb. 26-March 1, the department’s “Meals for a quarter in the Quarter” will include “dinner and a movie” beginning at 7:30 p.m. The original play, written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author born in Columbus, won the prestigious New York Drama Critics Circle Award in 1945. “When Tennessee Williams was a struggling artist in New Orleans, he lived for a while in a home run by an eccentric landlady who tried briefly to open a restaurant,” explained play director Brook Hanemann, of MUW. “To help pay rent, Williams passed out flyers for his landlady brandishing his own advertising slogan: ‘Meals for a quarter in the Quarter.’
