If you've been wondering what WBUR's Robin Young looks like, go see the ART's new stage adaptation of Wim Wenders's "Wings of Desire." The host of "Here and Now" reads the news (and sometimes silently mouths it) onstage during the bizarre and at times hard-to-follow production. She wears heels and has a swept-up hairdo -- and looks much different than the long-haired hippie I imagined would be attached to that soothing voice.
And if you've been wondering what it's like to watch a trapeze artist soar high above a stage in a thong, the show's got that covered too.
Check out the review in tomorrow's Weekend section for a more intellectual analysis.
