The sun is still blazing in quiet moments here and there but seriously though, it's fall. It's chilly, moist and my husband's just happy that he doesn't have to mow the lawn as often ... though I'm warming up my raking muscles. Festival season is over; it's time to cozy

LGBTQ benefit show

Humans have the capacity for doing a great many things -- good, bad and indifferent. We've all been inundated in our lives with moments of cruelty, both on a large scale, and on a smaller, more insidious one. Our instincts for conflict, exclusionism, and a fear of uniqueness have resulted

Newsies at Tacoma Musical Playhouse

Disney's Newsies at Tacoma Musical Playhouse is a romping, stomping look at the beginnings of the labor movement, based on the true story of a historic strike by newsboys that brought business to a standstill in New York in 1899. Newsies won Tony awards for Best Choreography (Christopher Gattelli) and

So continues the tour

Would you be comfortable hanging out with your exes? What if one of those relationships was, to put it mildly, tempestuous? Imagine you and your ex were musicians. Could you tour the country with that person, singing songs that remind you of both the best of times and the worst

Go underground in Portland

"Shanghaiing," or kidnapping people and forcing them into servitude, is an undeniable part of Portland's past. Between 1850 and 1941, thousands of people were shanghaied while patronizing saloons, brothels and gambling dens along Portland's waterfront district. They were tricked, drugged and imprisoned in underground "shanghai tunnels" until they could be

I stepped out onto my porch on a grey morning and felt that chill. You know the one, the first of the season that tells you that autumn has finally arrived. I turned quick on my heels and immediately began to snag the scarves and hats that I'll be donning

The Foreigner

In many ways, Tacoma Little Theatre's production of The Foreigner feels like a more light-hearted version of Martin McDonagh's work. Earlier this year, I reviewed TLT's staging of McDonagh's The Pillowman, and The Foreigner -- penned by Larry Shue -- shares with it a pattern of jarring tonal shifts and an overabundance of ideas.

Set on shuffle

I recently stumbled across a baffling playlist on Spotify called "Songs to Sing in the Shower." It seemed like the ideal soundtrack to cruising around on a sunny almost-autumn day, but I was quickly surprised by a series of songs that were either picked by a blindfolded person throwing darts

Time flies

Volta is the Italian word for time; and, in the acrobatic hands of the French-Canadian theatrical franchise Cirque du Soleil, it most certainly flies. The company's 15th production to tour through Seattle draws inspiration from such "extreme" sports as bicycle motocross and bungee jumping. Volta follows a blue-coifed character named

Three Easy Pieces

Another month, another edition of Three Easy Pieces, where I explore a specific pop cultural subject from its birth to how it looks today. It's generally accepted that remakes of movies are never as good as the original -- and I'd usually tend to agree. This month, I'm looking at
