All That Glitters

All That Glitters

Walk into the newly remodeled Louis Carlos Bernal Gallery at Pima College and the first thing you see is a fairytale forest of golden trees.

Reform School Girls

It’s 1914, and in New York City four adolescent girls inhabit a sparse room in a Catholic reformatory for wayward girls.

A New Light

I’m not supposed to wake dancer Francis Lawrence from his nap.

Un Gringo Chilango

I had just come out of Mexico City’s Hospital de Jesús Nazareno where Hernán Cortés’ remains are surreptitiously stashed in the adjacent templo when something happened that had never occurred before in my six years of living in Mexico: I got called a gringo.

Tolerance, please

When Israel Horovitz wrote his play Lebensraum in 1996, he could have had no idea that it might become a cautionary tale for the 21st century.

Dinnerware Revisited

Ass-kickin' Posole!

Mixed Bouquet

Opera often ends in tragedy. Not this time.

Sold Pueblo Visions

Michael Cajero has never been an artist of muted views.

Dance Away

After opera singer Bernard Bermudez's lush baritone vocals stole the show at a Ballet Tucson concert last year, he got a repeat invitation.

The Curtain is Rising

So the wreaths are put away as are the menorahs, and everything you have now is less of everything you had, and is tidy and tucked away in those ubiquitous storage boxes every store in Tucson is hawking.

Presidential Follies

A satirical painter of scathing political art, UA art prof Quiroz has already skewered American commanders-in-chief from George Washington to Barack Obama. His neon-colored cartoon caricatures of the nation's leaders are in the Presidential Series, an exhibition now in its last days at the University of Arizona Museum of Art.

Myths, Questions and Lessons

Theaters, like most every other entity, work hard to create their brand.

Frida’s Flowers

The spirit of Frida Kahlo hovers sort of over an unusual outdoor exhibition at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.

Fringe Goes Mainstream

if you want to start your theater-going year with a heady dose of the “bigger and badder” variety, you should check out the sixth annual Tucson Fringe Festival.
