Mind-blowing moondancers of Cirque du Soleil's "Amaluna"

  I've seen five Cirque du Soleil productions now and loved every one. They're circuses that forgo animals in favor of the staggering variety of things human beings can do, and they share a looseness of plot and fanciful, go-for-broke design philosophy. Just opened in Seattle is Cirque's newest touring show,

I managed to catch a goodly chunk of Olympia Family Theater's 2008 production of James and the Giant Peach, despite performing in a thriller next door. If you enjoyed the 2008 version, you'll find OFT's current revival uses the same script. The costumes are the same or similar, and the

THE ROCKFORD FILES: The Informal Gentlemen

From the moment I heard The Informal Gentlemen's song "Cold Dish," I felt a sense of clarity, a sense of purpose. This is conveyed not only through the band's sound, but also through the more implicit vibe that a band can give off. When you listen to The Informal Gentleman,

The Grand Suggests: "Zero Dark Thirty"

Ever walk into an argument long after it began and found that it's seemingly too late to take a side? The dueling parties have been firing off rationale after rationale, their heels are dug in, and as you watch them quarrel you decide you might as well stay out of

The future of musicals staged at Capital Playhouse

  Every 15 years or so, the American musical veers in a new and unpredictable direction. When it works, it inspires a wave of imitators. Phantom and Les Miz spawned a decade of bombast. Rent added urban flava and moved gay life and issues to the forefront. Something tells me Next

Calligraphic art exhibit "Out of the Silence" promotes dialogue

I attended the opening of "Out of The Silence," an art exhibit in Olympia's Urban Onion lobby. It was a phenomenal event and a phenomenal exhibition. As they say in high society, everyone who is anyone was there: Mayor Stephen Buxbaum, Congressman Denny Heck, a handful of City Council members,

Roberta Flack cares

On any given morning, after eating her daily oatmeal, and feeding her several dogs, legendary musician Roberta Flack gets busy in her New York City home - busy rehearsing, busy planning, busy listening to or writing music. "I'm a busy person. I have a busy personality," Flack says over the phone.

Sumptuous dinner is fantastic foreplay

Stop with the tirade about hating Hallmark holidays. Clearly, it's true that Valentine's Day is an artificial way of forcing you to synchronize your expressions of love, loyalty, and romance with those of the rest of the world, but you have to admit that it's also nice to go out

Love Our Local Fest

  Last summer, the Love Our Local Fest (LOL) in Olympia's Eastside neighborhood drew 1,500 people. Live music, face painting, street painting, kid's activities, food and artisan vendors helped make the 2nd annual festival a success. "It was pretty much an awesome frickin' day," says Daniel Landin, co-curator. "We had 400 or

MUSIC CRITICS' PICKS: Pat Doherty, Andre Nickatina, Jake Shimabukuro, Night Beats

>>> Friday, Feb. 8 PAT DOHERTY Earlier this year, Pat Doherty, lead singer of local favorites the Wheelies, released his solo debut via the quickly up-and-coming local record label, Swoon Records. On Doherty's Rail Car EP, he breaks from the nervy indie rock practiced by the Wheelies and embraces easy-going, indie folk-pop.
