By James Lomuscio

“Today’s the last day?” a woman asked. Kerch nodded.

“What are you going to do with all the chocolates?” the woman continued. “Any discounts?”

Kerch confirmed that it was the last day of operation for the chocolate seller and cafe, but there would be no discounts.

A Smile After “I Do! I Do!” Rave Review Image
Michael Ross, managing director of the Westport Country Playhouse, was all smiles tonight following a highly positive review in today’s Wall Street Journal of the Playhouse’s current production of “I Do! I Do!” Critic Terry Teachout called co-star Kate Baldwin “an absolute knockout” and added “This production bodes well for the reign of Mark Lamos, Westport Country Playhouse’s new artistic director. It’s good enough to go over in one of the smaller Broadway houses.” The musical has been extended until Sept. 4. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Helen Klisser During for

Reflections on a Lithuania Forest Image
Westport artist Judith Orseck Katz poses with one her works at an opening reception tonight at the Nylen Gallery at Picture This, 606 Post Road East. In contrast to her well known exuberant, expressionist watercolors of the Connecticut coast and Upstate New York’s mountain scenes, these stark black and white ink drawings and prints are her emotional reaction following a trip last fall to Lithuania. There she visited the forest of Panerai, outside of Vilnius, where between 1941 and 1944, the Nazis murdered 100,000 people, including almost all of Vilnius’ large Jewish population. The exhibit runs until Sept. 25. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Helen Klisser During for

A bedroom faulty electric outlet caused a small fire at a Greens Farms Road home today and damaged a nearby mattress, the Westport Fire Department said.

Firefighters responding to a 911 call from 285 Greens Farms Road were met by the homeowner and directed to a bedroom where the fire had started, said Assistant Chief Robert Kepchar.

The homeowner said that flames were coming from the outlet and she went to the electrical panel and turned off the circuit breaker for that room and then called the fire department.

Firefighters checked the wall for extension of the fire and found that it was limited to the outlet and the edge of a mattress that was against the wall, Kepchar said.
