    Black Theatre Troupe's The Bluest Eye Portrays Adult Issues with Adults Convincingly Portraying Children

    Lillie Richardson is not 11 years old. I had to keep reminding myself of this during her performance in Black Theatre Troupe's production of The Bluest Eye. Richardson plays a child so winningly in this translation of Toni Morrison's acclaimed novel...

    Town and Country Mall Embodies the Lingering Spirit of Old Phoenix

    I live in fear of a few things: That Frank Rich will retire. That the writers of Lost will add yet another character to the show. That someone will notice that Town and Country Shopping Center looks about the same as it always has, and set about scr...

    "Sue Chenoweth: Predator and Prey" Takes No Prisoners at Bragg's Pie Factory

    There's a fine line between hunter and prey. Though nature clearly assigns roles within the food chain, one small change in the status quo and Fluffy the Rottweiler may take a chunk out of his owner, or a trained wildlife expert gets a stingray barb ...

    Arizona Theatre Company's A Raisin in the Sun Induces a Standing Ovation

    I have finally seen a play that made me want to stand and applaud at the end. First time ever. I figure I've been to the theater on the average of once a week for 20 years, so that's something like a thousand-plus plays and musicals I've seen. (I'...

    Condo Complex PRD845 May Be Eco-Friendly and Full of Modern Amenities, But That Doesnt Make It Less of an Eyesore

    I've been working overtime lately to not hate the newish, ultra-modern condominium complex that was dropped into my historic neighborhood near Seventh Avenue and McDowell Road a few years ago. For a fan of early-20th-century architecture, it's hard n...

    A House with No Walls at the Herberger Theater Center Fails to Set Free the Emotions Associated with Slavery

    A House with No Walls is neither an enlightening history lesson nor a compelling entertainment. Thomas Gibbons' play tells us nothing we didn't already know about America's unfortunate history of slavery, and its iTheatre Collaborative production, wh...

    I Gave Up Women with Bad Taste in Music

    I'm currently residing in the land of the not-very-thrilled-to-be-single and I think it's on account of a New Year's resolution I made a few years ago. On the afternoon of January 1 several years ago, I decided that I wouldn't, under any circumsta...

    I Stopped Buying Gas at Circle K

    Resolutions have never been my thing, mainly because I'm a compulsive liar -- especially to myself. I'll tell myself on New Year's Eve, "Self, this is the year we lose 50 pounds," and even as I'm making the vow, I'm reaching for the cheesecake, becau...
