    Future Shock - Mass Effect is riveting -- and a bit aggravating, too

    For a game that's considered Microsoft's premier 360 title this holiday season, it's amazing how sloppy Mass Effect is. Graphical glitches distract from otherwise fascinating character designs and alien vistas, constant stops and stutters lengthen lo...

    Greek Tragedy - Wake him when it's Ovid

    I'd been looking forward to Nearly Naked Theatre's production of Metamorphoses ever since they announced it as part of their lineup two seasons ago. Back then, the folks at Nearly Naked wisely postponed the show once they realized that its elaborate ...

    Reviews and Previews of What's Running Now

    Seussical: This cheerful tuner based on the much-loved books of Dr. Seuss screams to be seen by -- dare we say it? -- kids of all ages, even those who haven't yet met Horton (who heard a Who) or visited the Jungle of Nool. Childsplay's version, which...

    Fired Up - A breakthrough for breakables

    We wasteful Americans adore plastic. Cups, plates, and vessels don't require cleanup after use -- we can just pitch them and ignore the environmental ramifications. That makes breakables downright retro. It's no wonder that ceramics has experienced a...

    Wednesday Surprise - Good art in Chandler -- who knew?

    Maybe I'm just a sucker for scandal, but it wasn't until the recent squabble over the Downtown Chandler Artwalk that I became jazzed to drive out there. The East Valley Art Guild used to be in charge of the monthly event, held on first Wednesdays but...

    Plumb Tuckered Out? - A breathtaking journey through space revives Super Mario

    Mural, Mural on the Wall - Paint and suffering

    When they painted over the Rose Johnson mural outside Paisley Violin, I was bereft. I doubted I'd find an outdoor mural I liked as much; I'm a Rose fan from way back. There's something about her brightly colored, solemn-faced figures that I can't get...
