    Unseasonably Hot - Solos at Rule and Sandy Carson are among the top art attractions in town.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like the art world is the midst of high season? Nearly everywhere there's some exhibit that's worth taking in -- and that's really weird because the season should be shutting down for the summer. Ordinarily, June, J...

    Rock On - Movin' Out is a moving target.

    Some people think of critics as the artistic equivalent of meat inspectors; they see our job as going from place to place stamping performances as prime, choice, select or -- heaven forbid -- cutter. We're the arbiters of taste who will tell them wha...

    Touchless Touching - Pinter's Old Times excavates the passions of love and memory.

    My reaction to a Harold Pinter play often follows a predictable pattern. For the first few minutes, the dialogue strikes me as ordinary, the contradictions and obscurities willful and self-conscious. I find myself questioning whether the playwrig...
