Re: “Shadow cast: Repo! The Genetic Opera

I went to this movie not really knowing what to expect. A friend told me it would be worth my time, but I had never heard of it before and knew nothing about it, only that it would have a shadow cast. Yeah, well, I had one of the best nights in recent memory.

The pre-show was something I never expected, a mini-drama that was a take on a Shakespeare, and something I rather enjoyed. The show itself was awesome. Imagine yourself at a party with 100 of your closest friends when someone decides to rent a movie, a comedy/drama troop and a movie theater. That was kind of what this was like. A shadow-casted film is your chance to yell like you have always wanted to. From the cries of agony when the "Twisted Pictures" logo-clip appeared, which consists of a nail being wrapped by barbed wire, to the witty and sarcastic pop-culture references, to some even greater moments of hilarity I, as well as my friend, found our selves reeling with laughter.

The cast was great, well rehearsed, devoted to putting on a great show and to having a good time, all of which are crucial to a good performance. They were almost completely in sync with their big-screen counter parts, down to their every move and twitch. The directing was good, and seemed to meet the challenge of blocking for a very complicated show rather well (unlike much of Rocky Horror, Repo has very dynamic cinematography which makes the transition from a 3D original to a mostly 2D stage a nightmare).

The tech was also not too shabby. Costuming was good, right down to the Repo man's mask. Props were nicely selected/made, including even a theatrical knife with blood. The Set worked well for the most part, though some of the scene changes looked painful in a somewhat cramped area. I think they brought they're own stage too, which is a must have for a shadow cast.

On the whole I went looking for a good time and boy did I find one. I have already recommended it to several friends and look forward to the next show. I really hope this evolves into a Tucson classic. Mongo props and thanks to the cast and all involved!!!!!

Re: “Dave A'bear

Dave A'Bear is always fun to see. He not only is a living Grateful Jukebox, but he can play country, reggae, classic rock, heavy metal, and traditional music. And his solo Acoustic shows at the Hut have been amazing.

Re: “Grand Opening: Sacred Machine

I found his art work to be dark and mysterious. Worth seeing time and time again. He brought the past back, in a time machine. Thanks, Christina

Re: “Tucson's Largest Rummage Sale

This is an awesome event with something for everyone. There is a LOT of great stuff at the Junior League Rummage Sale-everything from furniture, clothes, toys, antiques, baby items, jewelry, books, kitchen and household items, linens, pictures, frames, electronics, suitcases-you name it, they have it! This is truly Tucson's Largest Rummage Sale and everything is high quality and sells cheap!

I would get there early if you go Saturday as things get picked over soon.

It is open for "Pre-Sale" Friday night. Entrance Friday night is $5. Doors open at 6:00 pm (There are a LOT of people that come to this every year and the popularity of the Friday night presale has mushroomed because people have learned over time that all of the good stuff - furniture, high end stuff, electronics, etc. - usually is sold Friday night.) The catch is that stuff is sold for twice the ticket price on Friday night (though still really cheap - dirt cheap in some cases)

Re: “Grind

This band is awesome!! Lots of great songs and they play them very well live! I had so much fun dancing and singing along with them. It's really nice to see a group have a female AND a male singer at the same time so they are able to mix it up quite a bit...and they do! They have some of their own original songs that are really good too! I'll be heading back out to see them again when they come back to the River's Edge!!

Re: “Toner Studio and Gallery

An Impresive assemblage of diverse work in an eclectic space of light and grounded artistry.James Toner's sculpture is sensual, ethereal, brings tears to your eyes. From his stunning, breathtaking nudes to his precious birds, a delight. James' studio/workspace is inspiring and near-enviable, if he were not such a really fantastic guy!

Juttas' large and commanding works beg close pondering. I returned to two of them many times. Rich and powerful, sometimes almost "secretive", it's a uber- pleasant Knowing she shares with us thru this beautiful work. I dreamt of it after viewing.

The photographic work in this show has motion and lots of negative space for your mind to wander freely - minimalist and a nice addition to the other mediums. The gallery itself is in a historic barrio south of Tubac and north of Tumacacori...and, like Amado, AZ. is a welcome wander to a more grounded, original art environment. A Must See!
