"Of Mice and Men" at Tacoma Little Theatre

Tacoma Little Theatre continues an outstanding season with John Steinbeck's classic tale, Of Mice and Men, directed by Niclas Olson, founder and managing artistic director of New Muses Theatre Company, and starring Mason Quinn as George, and Chris James as Lennie. To be clear, this is not just an adaptation

"Statements & Questions"

Based on previous experience, I expected anything but traditional in an exhibition of work by faculty and staff at The Evergreen State College. I expected political art and identity art and conceptual art, and I was surprised at how much traditional art there was - not that there wasn't plenty

Live in the sun

In the incubator that was my childhood, the types of music I was exposed to were fairly limited. Thanks to my local oldies station, KBSG, I was bathed in pop music from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Years later, through pop cultural obsessions and exposure to more varied people, my tastes

Hot Oregon

Hot springing in the winter is not for the feint of heart. There is the snow to contend with, the austere locations, limited services, and of course, the nudity.  Living on the Pacific Rim affords us the opportunity to get into the mountains for some raw, up-close experiences with nature ...

A lot has gone into the history of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, which celebrates 100 years in 2017. Some of the places we've all known and loved have a history worth noting in this centennial year. The following are some examples: The Soldier's StatueLocated at the intersection of 41st Division Dr. and

For years, there was a cartoon pinned to the wall over this writer's desk, a square clipped from The New Yorker. It was a simple ink drawing that depicted a sour-faced locomotive and bore a caption that read, "The Little Engine That Could But Just Didn't Feel Like It." The

Galileo set to music

Olympia Family Theater is known for delightful plays aimed at children, but every once upon a time they do a serious adult play such as Animal Farm and Orphan Train from previous seasons. Such is the case with Starry Messenger, the story of the father or modern science, Galileo Galilei

Portraits from the Smithsonian

The development of photography in the early 19th century almost killed portrait painting as a fine art and forced artists to find new ways of making art. Prior to the advent of photography, the purpose of portraiture was to memorialize or honor the subject of the portrait. The subject (the

Why on Earth did anyone ever think it would be a good idea to remake Carrie? It happened, through no one's coaxing, in 2013, and, despite being directed by the woman that brought us the heart-wrenchingly potent Boys Don't Cry, it proved ultimately unnecessary. The 1976 Brian De Palma adaptation

It's always a race to snag the best seats for Valentine's Day dining. And many local restaurants still have seats available, but you'd better hurry, be happy eating at 4 p.m. or 9 p.m., or plan to celebrate this weekend instead. To help you, sweethearts - here are some romantic

Valley tunes

If your childhood was anything like mine, there was a lot of music. Music in the living room, loud music in the car, and especially music around the campfire. Music around the campfire usually consisted of at least three guitars, and at the very least ten back up singers. Yeah

A new Sarah Vowell historical hardcover is always a welcome blast of nonfictional entertainment, whether she's discussing Hawaiian statehood (Unfamiliar Fishes), the Puritans of the Massachusetts Bay Colony (Wordy Shipmates) or the malcontents who shot American presidents (Assassination Vacation). Her latest book, Lafayette in the Somewhat United States, is the

Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story

In the past decade, or so, there's been a relative dearth of good biopics about musicians. It used to be that playing a legendary artist in a movie usually resulted in acclaim, but that well has run dry. One might be able to trace this fading genre back to Walk

Exuberant noise

As I was growing up, roller rinks represented ticking time bombs of messy emotional development. Birthday parties, graduation parties, post-soccer pizza parties - any reason to assemble a jumbled group of children would somehow coincide with a trip to a roller rink, and thus result in hormonally tormented proto-humans walking
