Dickens_05082006_27WE'LL GIVE FIVE QUID TO THE FIRST KID WHO GOES UP TO THE FISH 'N CHIPS STAND AND SAYS, "PLEASE SIR, MAY I HAVE SOME MORE?"

Opening near London later this month, Dickens World promises to take British kids back to the -- well, to the really quite miserable old days. Attractions will include a schoolroom where today's coddled class will encounter the "Dreaded Disciplines of Victorian Education," and a boat tour through the sewers of London. Dare we hope that there may also be a "Bitter Old Spinsters of the Caribbean" ride. . .?

UPDATE: AMY WILSON'S "MOTHER LOAD"

Gina Bellfante of the Times has  reviewed "Mother Load," old friend Amy Wilson's one-woman show about Manhattan parenting, running through June 16 at the Sage Theater in midtown, and reports, "It is impossible to dislike Ms. Wilson. . . even as she leaves no cliché of sophisticated maternity untouched."

For shows about Manhattan parentings replete with cliches, please refer to my senior class yearbook, Trinity School (W 91st), 1981.
