    Revenge of a King Is a Thuggish Hamlet

    Okay, seriously: I'm too old and too uncool and, frankly, too white to have enjoyed Black Theatre Troupe's Revenge of a King. Herb Newsome's freaked-out retelling of Hamlet was, in a word, annoying. Yo. The only thing I dislike more than Shakespea...

    Scottsdales SkySong Is One of the Few Phoenix Development Plans That Will Actually See Completion Too Bad Its So Ugly

    I'm always whining about how city planners here appear not to have any real success at continued development; that we're a community continually launching long-term development plans that peter out before they're realized. So you'd think I'd be happy...

    Columbinus Interprets the Columbine Shootings Into Must-See Theater

    When I got home from the theater the other night, I immediately updated my Facebook page. I typed a note to the virtual community that read, "Two things: 1. Go see columbinus at Stray Cat Theatre; 2. Ron May is a genius." This is a theater review,...

    Brian Boner's New Exhibiti at eye lounge Finds Evidence of Adult Failures In Childhood Innocence

    You May Not Know Fred Guirey, But He Knew Phoenix

    Buildings Continually Transform in Phoenix, Making It Possible To Send Letters Where You Once Reclined

    I went to the furniture store the other day to mail a package. It was weird. Like so many other places in the Valley that aren't what they once were, this furniture store isn't a furniture store anymore. It's a post office. And so I was able to ma...

    When's the last time you had fun? Seriously, when? I'm not talking about the kind of self-conscious "fun" adults have at work parties. Or ironic "fun" grownups have at their book clubs. And certainly not the "fun" we have checking off everything o...
