VERGENNES — Going to the movies is definitely different now than it used to be back in the time of Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant and other classic Hollywood stars. Back when the red carpet was rolled out, the finest duds adored and, oh, the afterparties. Nowadays we plop on the couch, flip on Netflix and browse until we give up declaring there’s “nothing good to watch anymore.”

David Metzger agrees.

ROCHESTER — Choosing to live in Rochester, a town of just over 1,000 people, is choosing to live a small-town way of life — very small.

American Idiot by Steve James.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — For some of us, reconnecting with our inner, angsty teenager isn’t very difficult; for others, that was a time better left forgotten. The Middlebury College Department of Theatre and Dance is embracing it with a musical adaptation of the band Green Day’s 2004 concept album, “American Idiot.” The show, directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Michole Biancosino (a ’98 Middlebury alumnus) with musical direction by Clint Bierman (’97 alumnus) and live music by The Grift, will be performed May 2-4 at Wright Theater on campus.
