How sweet it is! You can get a sugar rush just by reading the titles of two new Off-Broadway productions. “The Chocolate Show!” is now in previews — just in time for Valentine’s Day — and “Peace, Love and Cupcakes: The Musical” is in rehearsals for next month’s premiere.
Valentine’s Day conjures up thoughts of chocolate and candy. And San Francisco is the perfect destination for New Yorkers dreaming of sweet treats and milder weather. The City by the Bay is well known for its good food — specifically, great desserts.
Susan Minot’s first novel in over a decade, “Thirty Girls,” is more than a literary event as it powerfully summons the fate of a girl captured by Joseph Kony’s rebels in Uganda.
