Playwright August Wilson: The seeds of a century coming to Tacoma

Playwright August Wilson's "Pittsburgh Cycle" comprises ten plays about the African-American experience, each set in its own decade of the 20th century. It's a massive, multifaceted saga worthy of the best work from actors, designers, and directors. C. Rosalind Bell, a playwright herself, knew and worked with Wilson and Claude

Theater Review: "My Brother Kissed Mark Zuckerberg"

Peter Serko's production of "My Brother Kissed Mark Zuckerberg" at Dukesbay Theatre reminds us that AIDS is still with us. It also reminds us that boundless familial love is still possible. During the most devastating days of the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s local photographer Peter Serko found out his

Jack & Bill & Lu & Al

Typecasting can be both a boon and a burden. When an actor plays a role so masterfully or for so long that they become inexorably linked to it, it not only provides them job security, it cements their legacy in the "biz" and their place in the public consciousness. At

Building Post Hall in downtown Tacoma

In the fall of 2012, I was given a tour through the cavernous insides of the old Tacoma Post Office building downtown. You know the one: weathered and storied, hunkered down on A Street, still with a functioning Post Office on the main floor, but with several other floors that

The Silver Dollars take the long, dusty trail back to the Sound

The past few years have been exciting ones for certain graduates of the Tacoma School of the Arts: members of a SOTA music collective called Dear Records. Alumni of Dear Records include Brad Oberhofer (of Oberhofer, you know?), Molly Hamilton (of Pitchfork-approved Widowspeak), Colin Scott Reynolds (I Low, Watermelon Sugar,

Dillingers Cocktails and Kitchen speakeasy opens in Olympia

John Dillinger, the depression-era outlaw whose gang robbed two dozen banks and prompted the induction of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is the inspiration behind the name Dillingers Cocktails and Kitchen, a new business located at 404 Washington St. in downtown Olympia. And, oh how apropos. Not only was the building

"A Punch of Color," works by Camille Patha at Tacoma Art Museum

The Camille Patha show at Tacoma Art Museum is stupendous. Frankly, having seen her paintings only on a computer screen, I had not expected anything so great. On my computer they were too slick, too intense, and overwhelming in a not-good way; but the real deal is breathtaking. The show is

[SURF ROCK] + SAT, FEB. 8 Last November, La Luz were driving along in their tour van when they hit a patch of black ice that sent them skidding into a concrete block. While waiting for AAA to come, a semi-truck came barreling into their van. It was a terrifying and

Theater Review: A class act at Olympia Little Theatre

I get Frank Bryant in Willy Russell's 1980 two-hander Educating Rita; not that I've played the role, though I have costarred in a play with a similar setup, David Mamet's Oleanna (1993). In that show, a female student compensates for intellectual weaknesses by accusing her male professor of sexist behavior.

Theater Review: Finding songs in Joe Turner's Come and Gone

Peter Turney was a Tennessee Supreme Court justice who governed that state from 1893 to 1897. His brother, Joe, made a living by transporting Negro prisoners from Memphis to the state pen in Nashville. Along the way, he picked up extra men by enticing them into craps games, arresting and
