Re: “Not-So-Fresh Feeling

Well, that was an annoying review. First the author complains about this huge misstep by the director that dooms this production and then say nothing about that misstep. I guess you're trying to drum up business with reverse psychology--Come see this play, not for the terrific performance outlined but, for the one really misguided terrible interpretation of the most dominant character.

Re: “An Excerpt From Simple Dreams

Linda Ronstadt's voice is a treasure whether it be in song, spoken or written word. From a teenage fan in love fast forwarded 45 years she has been with me in my dreams, consoled me in my sorrows, made me laugh out loud with her wit and charmed me with her warmth and natural beauty. Selfishly, I hope she continues with this new found talent and takes this fan along to the end of my days. I couldn't imagine a world without Linda in it and wish to thank her for all the wonderful moments that add up to a lifetime. ronstadtfanaz

Re: “An Excerpt From Simple Dreams

I can't wait to read the rest. Not only a personal story, but the background of life in the Old Pueblo decades ago is fascinating.

Re: “"It Will Happen to You"

Saw the 9/8 evening performance. Press-Coffman was reciting her lines; the acting was not effective. Didion's writing, which is terrific, carried the performance but barely. I was very disappointed. What's the point of memorizing such a beautiful script if you can't emote except, as Dorothy Parker might say, to run the gamut from A to B?

Re: “Fall Arts Preview 2013

Scarpia, I hope you've discovered our new online music listings at You'll find advance coverage of each classical music event complete with bios of featured artists and streaming music or online video clips as they are available. It's all music in our view, and now we're able to give classical artists the same kind of advance coverage we've only been able to give rock acts in the recent past. In fact, has even broadened our rock, jazz, blues and folk coverage substantially. Watch for your favorite live classical music announced at as the season unfolds. For example, check out this announcement of the first Arizona Friends of Chamber Music concert this year: The Jerusalem Quartet on Wednesday, Oct. 16.…

And, not incidentally, check out the Krueger Brothers concert announcement right here on (Be sure to click the tab for the opening act, the Dreadnutts, too!)…

Thanks for reading Tucson Weekly!

Re: “Fall Arts Preview 2013

I hear you. While not a classical event per se, the Kruger Brothers' repertoire spans classical music. Here's is a good example of that (snippets from Appalachian Concerto composed by Jens Kruger):…

Continuing coverage of "classical" events would be nice.

Re: “Fall Arts Preview 2013

Very nice article. Many of the artist at our live work spaces where excited to see so many of our friends listed in your article. It is so very exciting to be a part of Tucson Art Scene. Looking forward to the 'season'.
Thank you for a lovely piece of journalism.

Re: “Fall Arts Preview 2013

Not quite "everything artistic happening in Tucson". The Kruger Brothers will be performing with the Bob Meighan and the Dreadnutts opening the show at the Vail Theatre of the Arts on September 12. This beautiful, state-of-the-art theatre gets its name from the Vail School District which owns and operates it, but it is inside the Tucson City Limits! Details, directions, videos, tickets, and more are at

Re: “Ballad of a Broken World

As excited as I am to read Son of Gun, I was dismayed to see the memoir called a novel right below the headline.

Please correct.

Re: “Boomtown Rat

Read Casey Tefertillers "Wyatt Earp : The Life Behind the Legend" alongside this if you want to see the man, not just the criminal.

Re: “Finding Beauty in Asphalt

Fantastic. Otherwise mundane scapes come alive. You really have to see these prints in person. The power of old film is the print. And the printer. I hope she did them all on her own.

Re: “Water Worries

wow, this looks like a great book. I often wonder how we can sustain this life as it gets hotter and drier every year.

Re: “Dry World

Will we ever learn? Why in the world would we let the San Pedro River be pumped dry? Why would we listen to the ridiculous claims that by pumping enough groundwater for an additional 7,000 homes nears it's banks there will be no impact on the flow of the river. Do they (the developers) think we are that stupid? Or do they think we are that greedy and short sighted?
