"Lucinda Trout is about to live out the dream of every big-city person, moving to the idyllic countryside and a slower pace of living. Well, almost everyone wants this, and Lucinda is going to tell all New York why in her TV series "Quality of Life Report." Johanna Parker tells all in a wonderfully enacted performance, adding charm, sarcasm, and wit to this story of rural life. Just when you think Lucinda can't get into any more trouble or be any more na•ve, she manages to do just that, leaving the listener to decide just how much she really wants to change her life. M.B.K.
