Re: “Two Newer Plays

Apologies from the playwright: I'm writing because I have been made aware that I neglected to credit Damesrocket Theater for its production of my play Touch in 1999. It was the play's first production, directed by Caroline Reed, the theater's Artistic Director. Apologies as well to Ms. Forrester: had the credit been in the program as it should have been, she would have had the information she needed for her review. Toni Press-Coffman

Re: “Celebrating Freedom

This is good information provided about Juneteenth and a short history of blacks in Tucson. I hope that we as a community will come together and support this event this year. Though there have been some set backs and some issues that have taken place, should not stop us from continuing trying to make this event and other events held for us from growing. I would encourage all to begin praying now for a great change to take place at this event this year. Pray for God's hand to be upon this event. Through prayer all things are possible for them who believe. Let's believe for change.

Re: “Light, Air and Water

The estimable Forkan, Miller and Robinson's works gratefully acknowledged, I'd like to mention that there is still also a lot of great southwestern landscape art in this town.

Re: “Trouble in Mind

Well who doesn't come off well when Hollywood deems them worthy to have their life told on film. Just look at Bonny & Clyde, Jake LaMotta, or Francis Marion. I'd say John Nash is in good company.

Re: “Despite the Hardships

The exhibition sounds interesting. With regard to your editorial comments about the wall as a "monster" that "scars the landscape", you might want to consider the fact that it has also been responsible for a tremendous improvement in the quality of life for residents on the U.S. side - many of them Mexican-Americans of quite modest means - who for years were adversely impacted by the crime and general disorder emanating from the other side. There is a reason the Border Patrol is more popular in Nogales than in certain parts of Tucson, and to be intellectually honest about border issues requires one to wrestle with that fact.

Re: “Nutcracked Pueblo

Nothing says professional quite like this Facebook post written by adult dance director Donna Doell using baby talk while pretending to be her recently deceased cat to sell tickets for this years Nutcracker being performed by a time to dance. Enjoy!

Re: “A Musical Mess


It's a school for god sake. NOT ATC. Learn the difference.

The audiences are loving the show, silly. I heard they added another show and ticket sales increased. Hmm, maybe it's because people are ENJOYING IT! Word of mouth is a powerful thing! I hope it drives you out of trying to review shows in the future! Because you don't know how!

Re: “A Musical Mess

You're ridiculous! The show is beautiful and it always makes me cry. Hopefully, patrons will ignore you.

Re: “A Musical Mess

The sound needs work, yes. The set needs more money, Yes. This production is fantastic, YES!

My wife and I loved the production and the performers! Why don't you just stop writing.

Re: “A Musical Mess

I don't know what production you went to, Sherilyn. But, maybe you and Kathy Allen need to take a house by the sea together.

This was a WONDERFUL production with WONDERFUL performances by these college-aged actors. I preferred the "children" being these 2 actors as opposed to real children. The depth of character in both portrayals was excellent - something a child hardly ever has going for them. I do agree about the orchestra being too loud but that is the problem for the sound designer.

I saw last year's Into the Woods as well - both productions were directed by a person who knows musicals and what makes audiences come back to ART time and time again. This production was top-notch!

Try to be LESS cynical!

Re: “O'odham Colors

I've seen Olen Perkins' work, and specifically, the pieces Miss Portwood chose to write about. I suspect that the pieces were designed to provoke a reaction and, obviously, they did. I think it's really a shame that Miss Portwood spent the better part of her article slamming Perkins. I wish I could type more but, I smell the sweet perfume of a critic's burning flesh and I must go eat.

Re: “A Peek Into 9/11

Though referencing the playwright who famously claimed, "Hell is other people," is certainly No Error.

Re: “A Peek Into 9/11

Good, and I didn't say "easily." I said "tends to."

Re: “A Peek Into 9/11

Sorry about the mistake, oscar (although it's a stretch to say that such an error means the rest is easily discountable). It's been fixed.

Re: “A Peek Into 9/11

Jean-Paul Sartre wrote No Exit. This blatant error alone tends to make one discount the rest.
