As a member of MAPP, its a great joy to be involved in bringing awareness to a style of architecture that is so easy to appreciate. Being in the largest group of generations, the tail end of the baby boomers, I still remember several of the key ideas of the modern movement, and so will most of the people attending the tour this weekend. Who can forget the matching bathroom accessories, the asphalt tile floors, the shiny popcorn ceilings? I hope to see a lot of Tucsonans (and visitors) at the tour this Sunday, to enjoy going back to their childhood and raising money for a great cause!

Being new to Tucson I have noticed there is more emphasis on Receptions than Conceptions here when it comes to Art.
Totally disagree with this assessment. Don't attend a lot of theatre... but thoroughly enjoyed this afternoons show and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Think Ms. Forrester saw a different play than I did! And it must have had different actors as well. I think she get's off on tearing plays and actors apart because she shows the same streak in the majority of her reviews.
Trainor is truly a compassionate person performing remarkable work. I look forward with enthusiasm to her photo exhibit this Saturday on 9/11.
I believe you've covered almost every theatre company except the notably absent Live Theatre Workshop and Etc. Both produce consistently good shows - what gives?
Shanna Brock was incredibly charming and funny in this production and it is a downright shame that you overlooked her.
What the heck does Oracle mean?
I don't care if you are brown, black, white or blue. Fact is anybody who is in Arizona illegally is just that...illegal and must be treated as such. It just so happens that most (if not all) illegals in Arizona happen to be brown. Anybody who is legal needn't worry...just show the cop your ID and chances are you can be on your way.

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.
