AllLearn, a nonprofit venture between Oxford, Stanford and Yale Universities, is offering a new online course: “The Da Vinci Code: Demystified.” A murdered curator at the Louvre, a radical reinterpretation of Christianity, and hints layered in the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci are all elements of Dan Brown’s smash best seller. This three-week course offers readers a chance to separate fact from fiction and explore the historical claims made by Brown. Join a panel of Yale scholars to uncover the truths behind The Da Vinci Code. More details can be found at:

Course length: 3 weeks Cost: $139

Offerings: Aug. 11 – Aug. 31, 2004 Sep. 8 – Sep. 28, 2004 Oct. 13 – Nov. 2, 2004 Nov. 3 – Nov. 23, 2004 Nov. 29 – Dec. 19. 2004

"The Mystery of Edwin Drood" -- Interactive theatrical event in New York City

The great Charles Dickens was halfway through his famous mystery novel when he committed the one ungenerous deed of his noble career: He Died, leaving behind no hint as to the outcome he intended for his bizarre and uncompleted puzzle. In this revival of Rupert Holmes’ Tony-Award-winning musical, you -- the audience -- get to vote and decide "who dunnit." Don’t miss your chance to solve, at long last, The Mystery of Edwin Drood!

The St. Bart’s Players present "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" from April 21st to May 1st, 2005 (Thursday-Sunday) at the St. Bart's Playhouse on Park Avenue at 50th Street in Manhattan, located in the Community House of St. Bartholomew's Church.

Tickets are $22.00 Regular Admission / $20.00 Students/Senior Citizens and are available at the St. Bart's box office by calling (212) 378-0248.

For more information, please visit

I’m dying to see you there!
