The John Anson Ford Amphitheatre opened its 2001 season Saturday night with a stirring tribute to composer Kurt Weill. Appropriately--given the eclecticism of the Ford's overall programming--the production stretched from the big band jazz of pianist-composer Roger Kellaway to the blues guitar of Robben Ford and the Broadway-based cabaret style of singer Ann Kerry Ford. Kellaway chose to open each half of the program with a surprisingly envelope-stretching rendering of "My Ship."

Saying he didn't want to hurt Alabama, Democratic Gov. Don Siegelman gave up his bid for a second term Monday and conceded the nation's last undecided governor's race to Republican Rep. Bob Riley. Riley, 58, will become just the third Republican governor in Alabama since Reconstruction when he is inaugurated in January. The GOP now holds a 26-24 advantage over Democrats in governorships.

On a gritty street in Brooklyn, with dilapidated brownstones and sour, shouting parents, a little girl with a big imagination makes magic happen. That's the theme of "Really Rosie," a touring production of the wildly inventive, vibrant children's musical by Maurice Sendak and composer Carole King.

Dr. Henry W. Foster Jr. saved the life of the mayor's infant son. He talked a scared and confused Joyce German out of an abortion. He ran a network of prenatal clinics that persuaded young, poor women to abandon their midwives. And he delivered babies. "Oh, the babies," recalled his nurse, Thelma Walker-Brown. "Lots of babies. Babies, babies, babies." He was just out of medical school when he came to Tuskegee. Young, ambitious, trained in modern medicine.
