P

resident’s Day is an
American holiday that is
celebrated each year on the
third Monday in February. School
children typically get the day off
from school and many profession-
als also get the day off from work.
Established in 1800,
President’s Day once went by a
different name. Known as
Washington’s Birthday, which is
still the legal name of the holiday,
this day was meant to celebrate
the first President of the United
States, George Washington,
whose birthday was February 22.
Congress declared that day a fed-
eral holiday more than 200 years
ago, and eventually the holiday
grew to become a celebration of
President Abraham Lincoln, who
was born on February 12, as well.
The holiday is now a celebration
of the lives and accomplishments
of every U.S. president.
Few Americans would be
hard-pressed to identify George
Washington’s visage, which is
depicted on some American cur-
rency, including the $1 bill. Born
in 1732 to Virginia planters,
Washington’s interests included
western expansion, which he was
able to take part as a teenager,
helping to survey the Shenandoah
lands at the age of 16.
Washington was also interested in
military arts, and he was commis-
sioned a lieutenant colonel in
1754, eventually playing a role in
what became the French and
Indian War.
In 1759, Washington was
serving in the Virginia House of
Burgesses, an assembly of elected
representatives of the English
colonies in North America.
Growing frustrated with, and feel-
ing exploited by, British regula-
tions, Washington voiced his
resistance to restrictions placed
on colonists, who were moving
toward what would become the
American Revolution.
At the Second Continental
Congress, which assembled in
1775, Washington was elected
Commander-in-Chief of the
Continental Army, taking com-
mand of troops at Cambridge,
Massachusetts on July 3, 1775.
Under Washington’s com-
mand, the Continental Army
would ultimately succeed, win-
ning the colonists their independ-

expectancy will go up; might
you run out of money before
you run out of life?
What will NOT go up?
Cost of living increases
on pensions and Social
Security will NOT go up.
Most people’s salaries will
NOT go up. Vacation time,
free time and time spent with
family will NOT go up.
People’s savings and invest-
ment contributions, in gen-
eral will NOT go up.
Standard of living will NOT
go up. Job creation will most
likely NOT go up either,
squelched by the Obamacare
doctrine. raises, bonuses and
perks will NOT go up as
companies are trying to
regroup, rethink and retool
their businesses to be more
competitive and to demon-
strate bigger and fatter profits
to their shareholders after a
lackluster few years of stock
market performance.
What can and should you do
about this?
My advice is that you
make an immediate appoint-
ment with your financial
advisor, a.s.a.p., to determine
the best plan of action to:
1.Reduce, avoid, mitigate or
eliminate Income tax from
your portfolio.
2.Create a plan to maximize
your contributions to your
retirement plans: 401k, IRA,
TSA, Pension and non-qual-
ified funds.
3.Start living below your
means to increase your dol-
lars allocated to both debt
reduction and asset accumu-
lation.
4.Examine your insurance
policies to see if premiums

ence from British rule.
In 1787, Washington
presided over the Constitu-
tional Convention in
Philadelphia, where the new
Constitution was ratified.
Within two years Washington
was unanimously elected as
the first President of the
United States.
Though the current two-
term limit was not law at the
end of Washington’s second
term, he chose to retire from
the Presidency anyway, leav-
ing office in 1797. He would
retire to his Virginia home at
Mount Vernon, where he still
engaged in various business
dealings. Within three years of
his retirement, however,
Washington would fall ill of a
throat infection that ultimate-
ly took his life on December
14, 1799.
In addition to providing
the inspiration for President’s
Day, Washington’s legacy is
that of a hero who led an army
of colonists to a victory over a
dominant empire.
The Washington Monu-
ment and Mount Rushmore
are two of the more notable
monuments honoring the first
President of the United States.
In addition, the nation’s capi-
tal of Washington, D.C. is so
named in honor of George
Washington.

entin, as dis-
cussed in the
first part of this
series, is a unique layer
of the tooth. It is made
up of tiny tubes (denti-
nal tubules) that go
from the inside of the
tooth, the nerve (pulp),
to the outside (enam-
el). It is from these
tubules that the tooth
has sensitivity.
Various stimuli
(sensations) move the
fluid in the tubules
inwardly or outwardly.
The movement of the
dentinal fluid activates
the nerve endings at the
pulp/dentin junction,which
causes the pain. Anything
that increases fluid movement
in the tubules or “softens” the
dentin increases sensitivity.
Very strong brushing and
gum recession were two rea-
sons for dentin hypersensitivi-
ty. Gum recession can be
caused by over-brushing,
tooth grinding/clenching
(bruxism), and gum disease.
Poor oral hygiene leads to
many problems. The plaque
(bacteria) left around your
teeth from poor oral hygiene
and infrequent dental clean-
ings produces acids, which
cause decay, gum recession,
and dentin hypersensitivity.
Dental erosion can be
caused by diet, medications,
drugs, dry mouth, reflux, or
stomach acids. This
exposes dentin and can
lead to severe tooth
wear when combined
with clenching or
grinding. Read all
labels of food and
drinks for contents of
harmful acids, such as
citric and benzoic
acids. Combing these
with sugar can do irre-
versible damage.
Tooth-whi teni ng
acts by applying hydro-
gen peroxide in over-
the-counter or pre-
scription doses from
your dentist. It pene-
trates the enamel and removes
stains. If the enamel is eroded
or missing,the peroxide can
cause pain. Over tooth-
whitening actually is dehy-
drating (drying out and
removing the fluids in the
tubules) the tooth and can
irreversibly damage the nerve
of the tooth.
This is why I insist on
monitoring all patients who
have their teeth whitened.
There are many products,
especially Colgate ProRelief
toothpaste, and prescription
fluorides that can treat dentin
hypersensitivity.
Part three will deal with
pulp damage to the tooth and
its symptoms, prevention, and
treatment.

co-friendly lifestyles
aren’t just for adults.
Encouraging kids to go
green at a young age can set
them up for a lifetime of mak-
ing decisions with the envi-
ronment in mind. The follow-
ing are just a few ways parents
can impart a sense of responsi-
bility to the environment on
their youngsters.
•Lead by example. Many kids
try to mimic their parents’
behaviors, and moms and dads
can take advantage of that by
making sure kids see them as
they recycle, conserve water
or make other eco-conscious
choices. If kids want to know
why you’re separating trash or
opting for tap water over bot-
tled water, explain to them
the positive impact that such
behaviors can have on the
health of the planet.
•Encourage eco-friendly hob-
bies. Today’s youngsters have
a host of technology at their
disposal, and parents know
full well that such access can
be both good and bad. While
technology can enhance
learning in the classroom and
beyond, gaming systems and
other electronic devices have
made it easy for kids to forgo
outdoor activities in favor of
more sedentary hobbies.
Many medical researchers
believe that such hobbies are

Getting kids to go
green
contributing to higher rates of
childhood obesity. But they
also can harm the environ-
ment. Gaming systems,
whether played on televisions,
computers or handheld
devices, use a substantial
amount of energy. Parents
who encourage more eco-
friendly activities, such as
reading or playing outside,
can get the best of both
worlds, as kids will be getting
out and about and embracing
activities that don’t harm the
planet.
•Ride bicycles more often.
Reducing fuel consumption is
one of the most effective ways
to reduce your carbon foot-
print, and even though kids
can’t drive, that doesn’t mean
they can’t pitch in to conserve
fuel. Children who attend
school close to home can ride
their bikes rather than taking
the bus or hitching a ride with
mom or dad. Explain to
youngsters the impact that
such a choice can have on the
environment, and ride bikes
with your kids whenever possi-
ble, be it on trips to the park
or to visit friends and family
members. Many kids love to
ride their bikes, and they
might like it even more if they
understand the positive
impact that such a hobby is
having on their planet.
•Teach kids to reuse products.
Waste is a significant environ-
mental issue, but reusing prod-
ucts is a great way to cut back
on waste. Items that would
once be tossed into the trash
after serving their purpose can
be repurposed when tackling
projects around the house, and
kids can get in on the act, too.
Rather than purchasing store-
bought decorations for holi-
days like Halloween or
Chanukah and Christmas,
reuse old products to craft
homemade decorations.
Birthday gifts or items
exchanged during the holidays
can be wrapped in old newspa-
per instead of store-bought
wrapping paper. Many prod-
ucts that would otherwise be
discarded can be reused, and
kids might enjoy finding new
ways to make use of old items.

P
residents George
Washington and
Abraham Lincoln
both made their marks
on American history, so
much so that every year
Americans celebrate
their birth and influence
with Presidents’ Day.
Washington may
have been the country’s
first president, but
Lincoln is perhaps more
frequently celebrated for
his profound efforts to
abolish slavery. He is best
known for presiding over
the United States during
the Civil War and sign-
ing the Emancipation
Proclamation, which lib-
erated slaves across the
country. While much is
widely known about
Lincoln and his life, there are
some lesser-known tidbits that
only historians or history buffs
seem to know. In honor of his
birthday, here are 13 facts
about the man that aren’t as
widely known.
1.Towering over others at a
height of 6 feet 4 inches tall,
Lincoln remains the tallest
president to hold office. It is
likely his stature helped to
present an air of
authority during his
presidency.
2.Lincoln had two
romantic interests
before he married
Mary Todd in 1842.
Lincoln was in a rela-
tionship with Ann
Rutledge, who died of
typhoid fever. He also
courted Mary Owens
for some time before
they ended their rela-
tionship.
3.Lincoln was notori-
ously messy. His law
office was often clut-
tered, much to the
chagrin of his partner
William Herndon. It
is said Lincoln kept an
envelope on his desk
marked, “When you
can’t find it anywhere else,
look into this.”
4.Lincoln was the first presi-
dent to be photographed at
his inauguration. His future
assassin, John Wilkes Booth,
can be seen in a photo stand-
ing close to the president.
5.In 1849, Lincoln obtained
Patent No. 6,469 for a device
that was designed to lift and
keep boats afloat when they
passed over a sandbar or
entered shallow water.
Lincoln served as a ferry oper-
ator and flatboat pilot prior to
entering politics.
6.Lincoln took his dreams
seriously.Before his election to
the presidency, Lincoln said
he was startled by a vision of a
double image of himself. The
second image was pale,
according to accounts. His
wife was led to believe the
vision meant Lincoln would
be elected to two terms as
president and die during the
second.
7.Lincoln’s beard is almost as
famous as the man. He was
urged by advisors to grow a
beard during his first term to
soften some of his harsh fea-
tures.
8.Lincoln was born to Thomas
Lincoln and Nancy Hanks.
Actor Tom Hanks is a distant
relative of the former president.
9.Despite his stature, Lincoln
apparently had a high-pitched
voice and not a deep timbre.
10.Lincoln wore a size 14
shoe.
11.According to reports by his
personal secretary John Hay,
Lincoln would sometimes
pace the White House
because of insomnia. He
would keep Hay up with
funny stories or with readings
of Shakespeare.
12.Lincoln accepted a chal-
lenge to a duel with James
Shields, a state auditor.
Lincoln chose a broadsword as
the weapon, but Shields
decided to work through his
differences with Lincoln ami-
cably rather than face him in
the duel.
13.The contents of Lincoln’s
pockets on the night he was
killed were not revealed until
February 12, 1976.
Little-known facts about Abraham Lincoln
T
he elderly are at risk
for depression and are
underserved by the
mental health profession.
Many are resistant to treat-
ment because they equate
depression with weakness or
death. Here are some coping
strategies for you and your
loved one:
1.Recognize that depression is
an illness. Family members
should be aware of the disabil-
ity that depression can cause
and should avoid making
depressed parents or relatives
feel guilty by telling them to
get out more or pull them-
selves up by the bootstraps.
Depression is an illness and
can become quite debilitating
if left untreated.
2.Don’t dismiss symptoms. If
your loved one is not eating
for more than a few days, or
loses interest in activities they
used to love for more than
two weeks, it could
be signs of depression.
Unexplained crying, sadness
that lasts for extended periods
and social withdrawal are
other signs.
3.Talk about how they feel.
Instead of plunging directly
into a tough discussion about
treatment, try asking what’s
going on. “I’ve noticed you
haven’t been sleeping well.”
Or “You seem so sad lately.
You don’t seem like yourself.”
Using gentle probing will not
instantly put the elder on the
defensive.
4.Allow them to remain inde-
pendent. Do not take over
doing tasks for them that they
can do for themselves. Doing
things for a depressed person
only reinforces their percep-
tion that they are worthless
and incapable.
5.Seek professional help. If
they are resistant to help, tell
their doctor your concerns
and behaviors you’ve noticed.
Older people are sometimes
less resistant and more willing

O
wning a pet is often a
rewarding responsi-
bility. Pets make for
loyal friends, and for every
late night walk in the cold pet
owners must endure, their pets
repay those gestures in spades.
While the greatest
responsibility pet owners have
to their pets is to ensure their
furry friends live as comfort-
ably and healthily a life as pos-
sible, pet owners also have a
responsibility to the planet.
Eco-conscious pet ownership
can have a positive and sub-
stantial impact on the envi-
ronment, and the following
are a few simple ways for pet
owners to care for their pets
and protect the planet at the
same time.
Say “so long” to plastic
bags. Picking up pet waste is
arguably the worst part of
owning a pet, and some pet
owners simply want to pick up
the waste without giving it a
second thought. But how pet
owners pick up their pets’
waste can impact the environ-
ment. Using plastic grocery
bags leftover from trips to the
store is bad for the planet, as
research has shown that such
bags can take as long as 1,000
years to degrade. That means
that plastic bag full of pet
waste might still be around
come the dawn of the next
millennium. Instead of using
plastic bags to pick up their
pets’ waste, pet owners can use
biodegradable waste bags
made from materials other
than plastic. Such bags might
not make the task of picking
up pet waste more enjoyable,
but they are certainly more
eco-friendly, taking far less
time to degrade than plastic
bags.
Embrace organic pet
foods. Pet foods have evolved
considerably over the last sev-
eral decades, and pet owners
now have more healthy
options at their disposal.
Organic pet foods make for
healthier alternatives for pets,
eliminating the buildup of
residues of chemical additives,
pesticides, fertilizers and her-
bicides in pets. Such residues
have been shown to have an
adverse effect on pet health.
In addition, a study funded by
the European Union found
that organic fruits and vegeta-
bles have up to 40 percent
more antioxidants than non-
organic alternatives, adding to
the nutritional value of organ-
ic pet foods. Organic pet foods
also are produced without the
use of conventional pesticides
or artificial fertilizers, benefit-
ing the planet as a result.
Before altering their pets’
diets, pet owners should con-
sult their veterinarian for
advice and tips on how to
make the transition from tra-
ditional foods to organic alter-
natives as smooth as possible.
Look for products made
from recycled materials. More
and more pet products are
being made from recycled
materials, and pet owners can
encourage manufacturers to
keep that trend going strong
by purchasing such products
whenever the opportunity to
do so presents itself. Leashes,
bowls, toys and scratching
posts for cats are just a
few of the many pet
products made from
recycled materials.
Before buying pet prod-
ucts, pet owners should
read labels to determine
if a given product is
made from recycled
materials.
Clean green. Like their
human counterparts, pets
need to bathe. While they
might not bathe every day like
their owners, pets such as cats
and dogs need to be sham-
pooed and cleaned every so
often. When buying cleaning
products, pet owners should
look for nontoxic products.
Many traditional pet sham-
poos or pet beauty products
are laced with chemicals, and
such ingredients can have an
adverse effect on pet health
while also harming the envi-
ronment. Nontoxic grooming
products can still give pets’
coats a beautiful shine, but
they do so without taking a
toll on the planet or the ani-
mal’s health.
Pet ownership is a signif-
icant responsibility, and pet
owners should recognize that
part of that responsibility
involves caring for their pets
in an eco-friendly way.

S
ince the economic
downturn that began in
2008, many men and
women have placed a greater
emphasis on saving money.
Downsizing a home or trading
in that gas guzzler in the drive-
way for a more fuel efficient
vehicle are two major ways to
save money, but there are
many less drastic choices men
and women can make that not
only save money but also
might just save the planet
along the way.
The desire to be more
eco-conscious is strong in
many people, who recognize
the responsibility they have to
protect the planet for future
generations. But while incen-
tives may not be necessary to
entice people to be more eco-
friendly, there are many ways
men and women can go green
and save money at the same
time.
•Eat in. Dining out on the
town can make for a wonder-
ful evening. But when dining
out, diners are often at the
mercy of restaurant owners
and chefs with respect to the
ingredients in their foods.
Restaurants can cut corners by
ordering less expensive ingre-
dients that might be processed
or produced far away, which
means they must be packaged
and transported before they
inevitably find their way onto
your plate. Packaging and
transporting products from
afar is not very friendly to the
environment. When eating
in, men and women have a
greater amount of control as
to what goes into their meals,
allowing them to choose
locally produced foods and
ingredients that did not leave
as big a carbon footprint as
foods produced in distant
locales. And dining is nearly
always less expensive than
dining out at restaurants,
where the costs of buying and
shipping ingredients are
passed on to diners.
•Borrow and let borrow. The
days of yore when neighbors
used to drop by and borrow a
power tool or a cooking dish
are largely a thing of the past.
But borrowing has its benefits,
both for your bottom line and
for the planet you call home.
If you’re friendly with your
neighbors, don’t be afraid to
let them borrow your tools,
letting them know that bor-
rowing is both eco-friendly
and cost-effective. Many
power tools spend the vast
majority of time sitting on a
shelf in the garage or a back-
yard shed, so lending such
items out to friends or family
members is a good way to get
the most of your investment.
If you share your tools with
neighbors, friends or family
members don’t be afraid to
borrow items from them.
You’ll save money on items
you only need once in a blue
moon, and by doing so, you
will be reducing reliance on
the resources needed to create
such products by lessening
consumer demand.
•Get your hands dirty. The
produce aisle at the local gro-
cery store may not be busting
your budget, but that does not
mean you should just fork over
your money for your favorite
fruits and vegetables when it’s
so easy and rewarding to plant
and grow your own garden.
Organic vegetables tend to be
more expensive at many gro-
cery stores, but you can grow
your own organic produce at
home, saving money and
reducing reliance on harmful
pesticides at the same time.
•Turn in your tech products.

Next time you hit the drive-thru for your morning coffee, a quick bite for lunch or
with the kids after school, pay the bill for the car behind you! Your kindness could
make a difference in someone’s day!
To get started, download a Drive Thru Difference Note
at star991.com. Print out a few copies and take them with
you when you go about your day. Hand it to the cashier to
give to the person in the car behind you. It’s a great little
note to let them know you care and a perfect opportunity
to introduce them to the New Star 99.1...and maybe, just
maybe, introduce them to Jesus.
We would love to hear your stories!

talian cuisine is beloved
across the globe.
Flavorful and filling,
Italian cuisine is also versa-
tile, as different regions of
the country produce very dif-
ferent dishes featuring meat,
poultry, fish and, of course,
pasta. For those who want to
try their hand at Italian cui-
sine from the comforts of
home, the following recipe
for “Tortellini di Coda di Bue
(Oxtail Tortellini)” from
Michael White and Joanna
Pruess’ “Fiamma: The
Essence of Contemporary
Italian Cooking” (Wiley) is a
great place to start.
Tortellini di Coda di Bue
(Oxtail Tortellini)
Makes 6 to 8 servings
2 pounds oxtail pieces or
short ribs, well trimmed and
patted dry with paper towels
Sea salt and freshly ground
black pepper
¼ cup canola or vegetable oil
1 small yellow onion,
chopped
1 small carrot, peeled and
chopped
1 small rib celery, trimmed
and chopped
1-14.5 ounce can peeled
crushed tomatoes, preferably
from the San Marzano region
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 sprig fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
2 cups hearty red wine, such
as Sangiovese or Barbera
2 cups canned low-sodium
stock
¼ cup freshly grated
Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese,
plus cheese for sprinkling
1 large egg, beaten
1 pound store-bought pasta
sheets
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 fresh sage leaves
Season the meat liberal-
ly with salt and pepper. In a
large deep pot or Dutch
oven, heat the oil over high
heat until almost smoking.

Add the oxtails in a single
layer, always keeping the oil
hot enough to sizzle as the
pieces are added. Brown on
all sides, 15 to 20 minutes,
turning to color evenly.
Remove the pieces with a
slotted spoon and drain in a
colander. Do this in batches,
if necessary, so the pieces are
not crowded.
Meanwhile, preheat the
oven to 400 F.
Discard all but 2 table-
spoons of fat from the pot.
Stir in the onion, carrot and
celery and cook over medi-
um-high heat, stirring con-
stantly, until lightly colored,
5 to 6 minutes. Add the
tomatoes, garlic, thyme, and
bay leaf, stirring to incorpo-
rate all the browned bits in
the pot, and cook for 2 to 3
minutes longer. Pour in the
red wine, bring to a boil, and
cook for 20 minutes or until
the liquid has reduced by
half. Then stir in the stock.
Return the meat to the
pot. Bring the liquid to a sim-
mer, cover, and transfer the
pot to the oven for 1 ½ to 2
hours, or until the meat is
completely tender when
pierced with a fork. With a
slotted spoon, lift the pieces
from the sauce and put them
on a sheet pan to cool.
Using a slotted spoon,
remove about ½ cup of the
vegetables and tomatoes from

the pan and set aside. Pour the
remaining sauce through a
fine strainer into a clean pan,
pressing to extract as much
liquid as possible. The sauce
should be thick and rich.
Pick the meat off the
bones, chop into small pieces,
and put in a large bowl.
Combine the meat with the
cheese, add the egg, season
with salt and pepper, and stir
to blend.
Puree the reserved veg-
etables in a food processor and
stir them into the meat mix-
ture. Set aside. If making the
sauce ahead, cover and refrig-
erate for up to 5 days.
On a lightly floured work
surface, use a sharp knife or
pizza cutter and ruler to trim
the sheets of pasta into 6- x
18-inch rectangles. Cut each
rectangle into twelve 3-inch
squares. As you work with one
sheet, cover the remaining
pasta with a clean cloth or
plastic. In the end, you should
have 54 three-inch squares.
Line a baking sheet with
parchment and dust lightly
with cornmeal or flour.
Spoon about ½ teaspoon
of filling in the center of each
square. Mist the pasta lightly
with water, cover with anoth-
er pasta square, and press the
pasta with your fingertips to
seal the filling inside, making
sure to press out all of the air.
Trim the edges with a zigzag
pasta wheel. Transfer to the
baking sheet and set aside in a
cool, dry spot. Once the
tortellini are filled, they may
be refrigerated for up to 1 day
or put them into large reseal-
able plastic bags, squeeze out
the excess air, and freeze
immediately for up to 2 weeks.
Bring a large pot of salted
water to a boil. Stir in the
tortellini. After they rise to
the surface, cook for 1 minute
longer, then remove with a
slotted spoon and transfer to a
large bowl. Drain any water
that accumulates at the bot-
tom of the bowl.
Heat the butter in a large
pot. Add the sage, cook for 1
minute, then add the tortelli-
ni to the pan and toss to coat.
Divide the tortellini evenly
among 8 large plates, drizzle
with the sauce, sprinkle with
additional cheese, and serve.

ger part of our lives, more and
more products we no longer
use are piling up in closets,
storage bins and desk drawers.
But such items can be recy-
cled, and you can even get
paid to recycle them. For
example, the Web site
Gazelle.com buys used smart-
phones, cell phones, tablets,
mp3 players, and other gadg-
ets, allowing techies with
older products they no longer
use to turn their clutter into
cash, all the while benefitting
the environment.
Many people resolve to
adopt more eco-friendly
lifestyles without expecting
much in return. But there are
financial benefits to protect-
ing the planet.

The Friendship Circle hosted its
fourth bowling league of the season
for the Wayne and Passaic-Clifton
areas on February 9. Volunteers
and special needs friends met in
Holiday Bowl and the Van
Houten Lanes for a fun hour of
bowling. This is a great social
event that allows children and
teens of different ages and abilities
to come together and join in a
bond that only the Friendship Cir-
cle can generate. Thank you to all
our volunteers, Holiday Bowl and
Van Houten Lanes for an unbe-
lievable afternoon. For more in-
formation about the Friendship
Circle visit fcpassaiccounty.com or
call 973-694-6274.
Y
ou’ll love following
the little mermaid,
who — in this brand-
new version — is a strong-
willed but endearing innocent
on her first journey to the top
of the sea. There she meets
the painfully shy but funny
Ollie, reluctantly training to
be king — not exactly her
idea of a storybook prince!
Their ensuing friendship
is the special and perceptive
core of the play.
Also on hand are her
proud father (King Neptune),
the sea urchin (his majordo-
mo) and her outspoken
granny. We mustn’t overlook
the marvelous sea witch, who
is desperate to get her hands
on the mermaid’s most pre-
cious possession and has
enlisted the help of a pair of
turtle henchmen, two won-
derfully comic inventions.
Creative and colorful
staging, coupled with the
author’s unique wit, have put
a contemporary spin on the
Andersen original, removing
the Victorian heaviness with-
out reducing the story’s
charm. Both wise and funny
in equal proportions, this new
telling of ‘The Little
Mermaid’ will appeal to all
audiences.
Performances are weekends
from February 15–March 2 at
12pm and 4pm. Ticket prices
are $23.50 for adults and $16
for children (includes tax).
Rhino Theatre is located at
247 Wanaque Ave. in
Pompton Lakes.
