For what it’s worth Ever go to the theater and wish you could be a part of the show? Then check out “How Much Is Enough: Our Values in Question’’ presented by New York’s the Foundry Theatre. In it, they pose questions about value to the audience and incorporate the answers into the performance. As ArtsEmerson director Rob Orchard describes it in the press release, “There’s a theatrical body in place to provide the overall shape and profile, but the guts, organs, nervous system, and funny bones will be supplied by the audience.’’ Sept. 13, 7 p.m. (through Sept. 25). $15-$49. Recommended for ages 13 and up. Paramount Center, 559 Washington St., Boston. 617-824-8400,

World according to Irving Novelist John Irving has written many beloved bestsellers, and his latest, “Last Night in Twisted River.’’ On his website, he says he fashions his stories by starting with a last sentence and working backward.

Vera’s verse Looks like all the time Russian poet Vera Pavlova spent studying music (graduate of the Schnittke College of Music and Gnessin Academy of Music) was good preparation for the writing career she began at the age of 20.
