Being new to Tucson I am reading the Weekly for the first time with this issue and this article confirms many of my current observations about Tucson being that the Art dealers, small museum curators and artists spend their time attempting to replicate what they consider the Art world and attempt to expand its market as they pose at being the reluctant accomplices in the next wave of gentrification of their neighborhoods, and the displacement of lower income artists.
a great example of an immigrant making an impact on our community.
I've finally found a cellist who plays as wonderfully as my teacher, Gisela Depkat. I can't
get enough of Nancy's recorded music. She electrifies me and hopefully thousands of other
listeners. Her technique and interpretation are astounding. She has incredible power and
has gathered even more steam with the passage of time. She's one of the world's very best cellists. Hooray for Nancy Green!
I was intrigued by the exhibition name but your review makes me want to see for myself. Thanks!
I was in from out of town and saw this play. After being totally blown away by the sheer number of true stories and the way in which they were presented, I was eager to see a review. While most of your review does not strike me as negative, your disdain for Lauro's play or 'script', is astonishing. You claim that as a member of the audience you could not achieve "whole-hearted symapthy" for these characters. Characters, I might add, that represent very real women, who dealt with these happenings in a complete whirlwind of time and politics. The play is wonderful in that sense; receiving "bits and pieces" does not detract from the actual true stories. Our men and women came home in bits and pieces, their stories as disjointed and sorrowful as the play (skillyfully acted and directed) portrays.
James..Thanks for the update on Ms. Bruun's latest endeavor. Would it be to forward of me to inquire how long were you in the box office before beginning your journey as a theatre critic? Xoxo Gossip Gus
ps. Did they ever get that damn heater fixed. See you in the fall.
What was the original ending? What is the reason for the sergeant's presence?
What is the reason that's been there from the beginning?
More than just curious,
I was delighted to see this bold made-to-order-for-Tucson comedy, where the laughs bubbled out from of all of us so easily. The audience was also tremendous. The night I was there, the troop pulled a woman from among us up on stage. Jane, I believe her name was, sat with a poise I would have found impossible, through a skit which finally built to suggest she campaign for Governor of AZ. Asked what her slogan would be, she immediately quipped, " I can see the Mexican border from my front yard !". Oh Jane, if only you were really running! This was truly a night which much craft had gone into, one of my favorites of the season. Thanks so much for bringing us this sparkling performance!
Good Meaningless Spectacles.
This article says so much more about its author than anything else! She is delusional in thinking SHE knows the REAL John Nash! She read a biased biography and is now the voice of "truth" in her own mind. The only truly obvious thing here is that for some reason, probably personal, the author is unforgiving about child or family abandonment. Okay, but that has NOTHING to do with who the real John Nash was or is! This piece would be well titled if it were called "The Writings Of An Idiot."
The run of this "Taming of the Shrew" is over now, but your reviewer missed an important aspect of this particular "directorial interpretation". The role of Kate and Bianca's father, Baptista, was transformed into a MOTHER. I felt that this drastically shifted the sexual balance of the performance, plus adding a subtle suggestion of how Kate could have 'inherited' her shrewishness. And Claire Buchignani really stole the show as this female Baptista.
Feb. 4, 2006. The date of the story is at the top.
when did this event occur?
I have to agree with Ogle about the writing of this article... However, the exhibit itself was really amazing. Encaustic work seems to be growing in popularity recently. There is an excellent exhibit of encaustics at the Art Center Design College's Florence Quater Gallery right now (which I think runs through March)...
I recently had a chance to visit the exhibit at the Kachina Gallery, and the work displayed there was extraordinarily beautiful. Walking through the door I was particularly impressed with the first painting I saw by Dlyn Parra, what a beautiful first impression of the exhibit! Kudos to all the artists and the people who have worked so hard to display their work so gallantly!
i guess when i say pretentious writing style - you use VOCABULARIFIC words like fecundity, and say many different words with the same meaning to sound... poetic? informed?
exhibit is beautiful, pretentious writing style of the article.... is pretty lame. diane's paintings are great... but when described as "an orgy of fecundity, twisting and tangling and intertwining." WTF pretentious!!!
Leprechaun: This article is from 2007, hence the dates being as they are.
The St. Partick's Day Parade & Festival are Saturday but the date is March 14th,not the March 17th.
