    All About Eve

    Is it over yet? Can we look? Don't know about y'all, but we're more than ready to put the titanic clusterfuck that was 2008 behind us. Frankly, we're hoping to forget the past 365-odd days (with the exception of November 4, natch) and welcome 2009...

    A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant Is a True Gift

    About three minutes into Stray Cat Theatre's newest production, I found myself thinking: This can't be really happening. When you go to see it -- and you must, if you do nothing else this holiday season, go see this astonishing stage production -- yo...

    Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting at SMoCA Manifests in the Form of Lead Teddy Bears and Car Wreckage

    When it comes to constructing things, I'm not the most capable person. I rely heavily on safety pins rather than sewing machines. I seem to believe that a nail into drywall can hold up any size picture frame. Oh, and spackle is the perfect material t...

    Fill in the Groove: Vinyl Art Show at Hoodlums Transforms Ear Candy to Eye Candy

    You can't walk across a college campus today without hearing the word "interdisciplinary." So it only makes sense that Hoodlums, an indie music store with roots at Arizona State, would follow suit. Since 1998, Hoodlums has kept a steady foothold i...

    View of the Harbor at Herberger Theater Is Saved by Its Cast

    In the whiny author's notes printed in the program for Richard Dresser's A View of the Harbor, the playwright carps about how hard it is to write plays. Because this commentary is punctuated with several sour jabs at theater critics, I was hoping I'd...
