Lee and Norbert Schwarz of the University of Michigan in a literature review appearing in the latest issue of Current Directions in Psychological Science, a journal published by the Association for Psychological Science.

The company of New York actors takes risks with the Bard few companies in Maine dare try, and pushes the technical limits of the more than 100-year-old facility. Last week's production of "Macbeth" was technically stunning. The set, lighting, original music and puppets illuminated "the Scottish play" in ways...
