Re: “Tasty Serial

I had the honor of producing the audio book version of this novel. It was my first experience with the work of Joe Brown. I, along with the narrator, Jan Smith, were immersed in a story that was rich in imagery and emotion. Many times we found ourselves taken away to another place with Cap and Billy. JPS Brown is without a doubt one of this country's great American authors. John Forbes, Atlanta

Re: “The Shock of the Old

"Medical misadventure"? Perhaps by the doctor, certainly not by Warhol.

Re: “ConDanza with ZUZI!

Last night's opening show was outstanding. We felt we were not in Tucson but instead in a major city watching a professional company. Although we enjoyed both companies, I will have to point out ConDanza as one company to keep an eye on. It is obvious that set pieces and big costumes are not necessary to draw audience. Their esthetics and movement quality will stand alone in moving you as an audience. A must see.

Re: “Not Photos, Paintings

There is a lot of information in this article and I will definitely have a look at as many of the listed offerings, but please, can we have a bit more coherency in the writing? I'm going to have to print this out and rewrite it before its usable as a guide to the listed galleries.

Re: “Struttin’ Fun

Yes, the Gaslight productions are corny & hokey, the puns sometimes make me wince, but the actors & musicians are all very talented & their enthusiasm is contagious. I belong to a social group & 'we' go to every production & have loads of fun tappin' our toes & clappin' our hands & copious amounts of Free popcorn are served by the friendly & hard workin' waitstaff; the Gaslight experience is fun & a fabulous bargain for people of all ages!....J.G.B.

Re: “Scenes of the Southwest

Hi. Reading this article got me to thinking about something a few years back I was on my way from New Mexico to Arizona I went about an hour south of Albuquerque and picked up a highway that took me west to Phoenix on my way out there I went down and down and down. It was late April or early May. As I crossed over I think I gained two hours. So it was a very long day but more stunningly The sky was crystal clear. Never in my life was I so surprised or delighted at scenery during the car ride. Part of it no doubt is the geography or top biography of that area. You go from the mountains of New Mexico to canyons which lead to a valley Full of saguaro cacti. I wanted to name that experience and so I was reminded of the book by CS Lewis entitled surprised by Joy. That was my experience. I was surprised by Joy. It was a day with two hours tacked on two hours of beautiful sunlight crystal clear skies and warm crisp Desert like climate that reached 99° upon entering Phoenix Valley. I've driven across country twice and have traveled abroad quite a bit but I never saw such a spectacular seen as this. Has anyone else driven that route that shared my experience? I'd be interested to know.

Re: “Life on the Edge

The Weekly needs to start putting links to the websites of boutiques and hangouts in these articles the way the Chow page does with restaurants.

Re: “Fantastic Figures

The Kasser family exhibit is probably fine, and I am looking forward to seeing it, but it is not a major show by any means as implied in the review. It is being seen in Tucson and Tulsa not exactly major stops on the art show circuit. To say "not to be outdone," and compare the MOMA and the TMA is to engage in hallucinations. Just say it is a good show and is worth seeing.

Re: “The Fall Arts Preview

It is revealing that you describe the concertmaster of the Tucson Symphony orchestra has a "guest violinist"

Re: “Marvelous Miz

Excellent production... Have seen performances of Les Miserables in Phoenix, Chicago (twice), New York, and ...Madrid, in Spanish.
Kudos to AO for putting this ensemble together, they and the cast are a credit to Tucson and our arts scene. AO is also to be commented for the community out reach that they do, especially noted, the complementary and free tickets they give to expand their future audience. Mr. Aguirre does have a bass voice as noted, a true baritone would have probably been more what is generally called for in this role. However, he did an admiral rendition, dramatic, forceful, colored, convincing. Would love to see him in a traditional bass role.
Unfortunate, the production run was short, the performance was SOLD OUT, I understand contractual and production cost limitations, ...but, it could have easily run TWICE as long.

Re: “Marvelous Miz

"Many think this story is about the French Revolution, but it concerns a much smaller—and less successful—effort years before."
Actually, the French Revolution was 1789, the Paris Rebellion, that is referenced in Les Miz, actually happened after the revolution in 1832.
And Juan Aguirre as Javert is a bass (lower and more ominous than a baritone).
But never mind about all that, go see this amazing production!
Anyone who has enjoyed Tucson theater over the years will be more than inspired.

Re: “Who You Gonna Call?

Dear Sherilynn,

Hi. I am a regular visitor at the Gaslight Theatre and I wanted to make a few respectful and professional comments on this review. The song is called "Can't Smile Without You", the costume designer's last name is Cloutier, not Clouthier, and the first sentence doesn't make sense. I thought it should say this is A good one.
