The Lion in Winter by James Goldman is a riveting comic drama about King Henry II; his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine; his young ward, Alais (sometimes spelled Alys and sometimes Alice); and his three surviving sons: Richard, Geoffrey and John (the eldest, Young Henry, was killed when he and his

"I'm even lethal when I'm unarmed," rapped Public Enemy, "'cause I'm louder than a bomb." That song inspired the title of Louder Than a Bomb (LTAB), a competition for Chicago poets ages 12 to 19. This month-long event was founded in 2001 by Kevin Coval and Anna West of the

I scoured the inter webs for my favorite smorgasbord of foodie theme festivities. I'm delighted to say there's an excess of furry and feathered friends and beer. If either are your bag, then you're in luck. This weekend, Harmon Brewing is kicking off a Hub Meet the Brewer, a South Sound

A challenging, verbose theatrical tradition

In theater, there's a sea of closed-room dramas that are designed around two or three characters coming at each other to try and suss out the truth of a morally complex mystery. Think plays like Doubt, Tape, or Oleanna -- explosive depictions of conflict between people who have everything to

Three Easy Pieces

Welcome to Three Easy Pieces, where I examine a witheringly small alley of pop culture, from how it started to how it looks today. This time: art-rock in the mainstream. I love when art-rock bands -- those noted adversaries to pop music who lurk in the underground -- take the

Art for March

There are times when there is nothing in town for an art reviewer he hasn't already reviewed. But there are some exciting new shows opening in the coming days and weeks. The one I'm most excited about is Kathy Gore Fuss: Above, Below and Beyond, opening March 11 and running until

Thirty-five years of wiggin’ out

Thinking about what bands are completely synonymous with Tacoma, I'd be hard-pressed to come up with a better answer than Girl Trouble. The band mixes garage rock with ‘50s rock, a detached cool and an impeccable showmanship, and an abiding love for the City of Destiny that has made them

The sprawling Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum packs quite a bit on its large campus that dominates the landscape. The two museum buildings are architectural gems with walls of soaring glass. In addition, there is a movie theater and the Wings and Waves Waterpark with a real Boeing 747 aircraft

The Canterbury sound

Over the past few weeks, in preparation for a move, I've been shuffling through my record collection to decide what'll be coming with me. The vast majority of this collection came from my dad, who left them with me when he left the country. I've still not had the chance

Epic play comes to Lakewood Playhouse

Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes and three Tony Awards for Best Play, Tony Kushner's Angels in America, now playing in repertory at Lakewood Playhouse, is a momentous and epic play, and very likely the best drama of the late 20th century. At seven-and-a-half hours in length, it is also a daunting

It's not Elizabeth Lord's first time receiving accolades from Weekly Volcano readers, having won the title of Best Actress multiple times.
