October 25, 2020: Today in the Portland Press Herald I review Carol Goodman’s The Sea of Lost Girls (see here), which hinges on Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible, which of course gives me an excuse to post a photo of Madeleine Sherwood (1922–2016), who played Abigail Williams in the original Broadway production of 1953. Sherwood, who was also an activist for civil right and feminist causes, had a good run on stage and screen (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Sweet Bird of Youth, and so on) before The Flying Nun swooped down and carried her away.
