Alil Vardar's The Divorcees Club proves one thing: The French are no more sophisticated than we are. Sure, they can boast the literary brilliance of novelist Michel Houellebecq and the biting satire of Charlie Hebdo magazine, but their biggest theatrical hit of the last two decades hasn't been the intellectually loaded dramas of Yasmina Reza ( Art , God of Carnage ), but Vardar's mindless 2003 comedy. The raunchy, riotous, Americanized U.S. premiere at Penn's Landing Playhouse shows why. The Divorcees Club starts with a too-familiar situation: Bethany (Aileen Goldberg)

What's worse? Being traded in after 34 years by your Broadway producer husband for his decades-younger producing partner, or writing a musical revue about it? I'm going to go with writing the revue, Til Divorce Do Us Part , because getting dumped is painful, and while Ruthe Ponturo's ex seems like a real cad, at least without this show she still had her dignity. Ponturo attempts broad appeal, with tunes aping Cabaret or Oklahoma , but all that forced cheer becomes relentless, and after 26 songs, including "The Divorce Dirge," "The Other Woman," and "Holidays Suck," this empathy cocktail gets a very bitter taste.

Neil Young's show at the Academy of Music on Thursday night served as a lesson on the perils of the intermission. After an absolutely sublime first half, the magical vibe went missing during a 25-minute bathroom break, and for the final hour the 68-year-old Young was inconsistent, rambling, and only intermittently brilliant. Strolling on stage in jeans and a flannel shirt, Young played most of the solo acoustic show seated, with seven guitars and a banjo within his reach. Not to mention a grand piano to his left, an upright to his right, and a pump organ behind him. There was an elephant in the impeccable-sounding 157-year-old room.

Mariah Carey silences hub? What makes a celeb divorce even juicier? Hearing the aggrieved couple vent in words unflattering and rude. Alas, we may be denied that pleasure in the Mariah Carey - Nick Cannon breakup. TMZ says they have signed a confidentiality agreement that gives Mariah serious hand. If he talks about the divorce, he pays a fine. Carey's allowed to share (her side) of the story. Though the breakup was announced only a couple of days ago, TMZ claims the divorce is a done deal and the lawyers have hashed out an agreement.

The divorce album is one of pop's strangest quasi-traditions, treating the rights, wrongs, and ruin of a personal relationship with the arts of the pop love song. Marvin Gaye did it with Here, My Dear , Bob Dylan with Blood on the Tracks , and husband-and-wife folkies Richard and Linda Thompson made one together in Shoot Out the Lights . This year, producer/songwriter/singer Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Toni Braxton, a singer he has produced two albums for, made one of the best duet records in this line, titled Love, Marriage & Divorce . (Babyface divorced Tracey Edmonds in 2005, and Braxton let go of Keri Lewis in 2013.)

George E. Norcross III and Lewis Katz made many of their millions while being in charge. So when they began talking about buying The Inquirer's parent company in 2011, they had concerns about the kind of business marriage theirs might be. Norcross had already been turned down once in a bid to buy the company, he would later tell a Delaware judge, and he was willing to share control with Katz only if the deal allowed for an "amicable divorce....

Old school pride As a 1978 Martin Luther King High School graduate, I was honored to see young men from King grace the front page of The Inquirer ("Kings of the screen," April 24). When I started at King in 1972, King and Germantown High were big and little brother schools. At the time, students spent 9th and 10th grades at King and went to Germantown for 11th and 12th grades. In 1973, the School District separated the schools and they became sibling rivals. I chose to stay at King. We got to choose the school colors (purple and gold)

The Affordable Care Act is changing more than the way Americans buy health insurance. It's making it simpler for unhappily married couples to uncouple. Word is starting to spread among family law attorneys that in the post-ACA era, health insurance isn't the binder it once was for holding bad marriages together. With more options available on the market and preexisting conditions no longer an issue, people once reluctant to divorce for fear of losing health insurance coverage would do well to reconsider.
