The Best of ArtsJournal--Monday, April 27

0427 ESPRESSO Bea ArthurHere are a few stories worth looking at, collected by aggregator extraordinaire ArtsJournal.com:

* An LAT post from Charles McNulty that praises the wondrous comic timing of the late Bea Arthur. "I can’t help thinking about the stage origins of those unerring instincts for comedy, the hours upon hours of performing in theaters large and small that taught Arthur better than any videotape what worked and what didn’t. Nor can I keep myself from mourning a death that in some respects marks the passing of an entertainment era."

* A story from the Guardian about how vacant storefronts in Britain are being transformed into artistic venues: "If this works, Britain's high streets are likely to be transformed over the weeks and months ahead: shops that had closed their doors will morph into studio spaces, galleries and workshop venues. In Sceaux Gardens, a bank of hairwashing sinks are still ranged across the back wall, but from Saturday, Parris will start collaborating on her musicals project with local children. Hers is part of a project organized by the South London Gallery, a stone's throw away: its management is leasing the shop for three years and taking on artists for six-month residencies."

*And an NYT story on the proposed renovation of the Public Theater.
