Lake Wobegon Comes to Waterbury

I enjoyed a pleasant evening listening to storyteller Garrison Keillor, known for his "A Prairie Home Companion" radio program at a performance last night at the Palace Theater in Waterbury. The beautifully restored theater, with its reminders of the past was a perfect setting for An Evening with Garrison Keillor. The author combined song, poems and stories about life at Lake Wobegon and time gone by. Keillor, fighting the sniffles all night from allergies, chatted for about two hours on subjects like getting older, trying to figure out the younger generation and remembering a simpler time of family vacations, women gathering at the local hair salon, fishing on the lake with is uncle Jack and a time seemingly free from worries we take for granted today. Next up at the Palace is Mandy Patinkin: Dress Casual on April 10. For information, visit http://www.palacetheaterct.org/. -- Lauren Yarger
