I spoke to the hospital the other day and fortunately the crisis is over. Apparently there are no other internal injuries and Cole is getting along quite nicely. Of course, one doesn't know as yet whether Clifton's show will have to be postponed or not. 

Saw Dwight last night, and he is in simply marvelous form, packing the room more than ever. Went to the Russian Ballet a couple of times and it is unbelievably bad. Of course it has a great deal to do with Leonide Massine who is leaving the company in the spring and David Lichine has neither the experience nor the interest to build up a reputation. 

There are a few new shows coming next week. Otherwise, there is nothing exciting going on in the theatre firmament. Don't miss seeing two pictures when they get to Palm Beach; Stage Door and Victoria the Great. 

Last but not least, de vita domestica: all quiet on the western front! It is almost too good to be true.
