Alive and Kicking

Alive and Kicking

A finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe is currently one of the hottest plays making the circuit right now. With a story that is modern and fiercely female, it is no surprise that Arizona Repertory Theatre at the University of Arizona added it to its 2019/20 Season and produced it with a team made, predominantly, of women.

 

Spring Arts 2020

Here in Southern Arizona, we are blessed with an abundance of art, as our Spring Arts Preview reveals. Margaret Regan fills us in on what we’ll find in museums and galleries, as well as previewing what local dance troupes will be bringing to the stage this spring.

Visual Arts: Foreign Exchange

Artist Papay Solomon was still in his mother’s womb when she fled her native Liberia.

Dance Trifecta

Midway through the eighth annual Tucson Desert Song Festival—devoted this year entirely to the American voice—Ballet Tucson is stepping up to perform three dances with American roots.

Under the Skin

Arizona Theatre Company’s production of Master Harold… and the Boys, Athol Fugard’s semi-autobiographical play set in 1950’s South Africa, begs the audience to question how we deal with difficult times.

Apartheid Revisited

Back in 1982, when Athol Fugard’s play “Master Harold” … and the Boys first hit Broadway, a New York Times critic got it right. This Friday night, Arizona Theatre Company opens its own production, at a time when the U.S. is undergoing its own wrenching battles over racism and inequality.

A Hoot

SAPAC’s Hot Mikado is a well-executed (pun intended) take on an old favorite
