Last night we saw Mary Zimmerman's Pericles at the Goodman. It was a very good performance but I wish she had picked a better play. Perhaps she meant to prove that the old saying "You can't polish a turd" is incorrect, because she did manage to polish it. Something which was not polished is the LUMA (Loyola Art Museum) exhibition on Caravaggio: una mostra impossibile. It's an outrage, and I was totally incensed! If they hadn't had free champagne and one of those chocolate fountains, I would have torn the images off the wall and smashed them over the cheese hor d'orves table. Anyway, what is this world coming to? I ask you. A whole show of copies of Caravaggios. It was like walking around a goddamn poster shop.
