    The Shock of the Now

    As we near the end of the 1900s, it's interesting to notice that the world of the visual arts is wide open, with a staggering profusion of artistic visions. Quite literally, anything goes. There are so many competing styles, ranging from straight tra...

    Mind Over Manor

    The Morrison Theatre's unflinching production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest starts the minute theatergoers enter the cozy town hall that serves as the community group's performing space. As Lawrence Welk-like tunes play in the background, the pa...

    Don't Flinch

    Much of the public discussion concerning the Columbine High School massacre has swirled about in a cauldron of controversy. The memorial service was too secular, too religious or too political. Howard Stern's incendiary (and stupid) remarks were seen...

    A Day at the Scheme Park

    Midway through Act One of Kingdom, it becomes clear that Richard Hellensen's play about a corrupt theme-park company is as much an indictment of popular taste as it is a rebuke of the soulless purveyors of mass-merchandised shlock. Bringing to mind t...

    The Hollywood Shuffle
