Yet it's the work of another Russian writer that is stamped most indelibly here.The Schwartz siblings have gathered

There is a God

The opening lines of Tacoma Musical Playhouse's production The Drowsy Chaperone epitomize what I have thought every time I've waited for one of the theater company's shows to begin: "Dear God, please let it be a good show. And let it be short, oh, Lord in Heaven, please. Two hours

Tacoma hearts Drew Grow

The best and worst thing about the Tacoma music scene is how tight-knit it can be. This quality can manifest itself as stubborn resistance to expanding the sonic palette of our town, but it can also result in inspiring gestures of care and support for one another. Tacoma takes care

In a lot of ways, 2010 felt like the year of the bully. It was difficult to turn to any national media outlet without finding yet another news story about a teen suicide tied to bullying, be it by conventional schoolyard methods or the continually escalating electronic means. Secret webcams,

Everyone knows about world-class rock guitarist and top hat enthusiast Saul "Slash" Hudson's axe-slinging exploits with Guns N‘ Roses, Velvet Revolver and as a lone, hard-rocking wolf (when he opens for Ozzy Osbourne on Saturday, it will be a sans-"snakepit" solo performance), but seldom is Slash the Actor discussed.
