Showtime!

Welcome to Act I of the Monitor's latest production, "Arts & Leisure." No more dress rehearsals. Today we open with the full monty.

Look to Editor's Notebook each Friday for the buzz of the week. Topics today might have included Hollywood's early jump on opening dates for summer, box-office records set by the unsinkable "Titanic," or highlights of the Golden Globe Awards show.

This paper has long been distinguished for its thoughtful entertainment coverage. We like to think our arts and leisure stories enrich, inspire, educate, and even delight readers. Our aim is to continue that tradition while becoming more useful and family-oriented than ever before.

This goal doesn't come from out of the blue. It's in response to your comments. We've been listening to our readers. Closely. And we hear you.
