    Twice Bitten - Transylvania mania is all in vein

    Welcome to Phoenix, where the sun never sets and one can typically find on local stages the same half-dozen shows (Little Shop of Horrors, Forever Plaid, West Side Story always among them) playing pretty much year-round. Sometimes, one can even find ...

    Shane Dean - The private passions of Little Almost Annie

    He's one of three Draculas currently flapping their capes on local stages, but future Oscar contender Shane Dean is not willing to take third place or any crap about his use of Mop & Glo, either. I knew I wanted to be in show business when I saw M...

    Hype Machine - Does Halo 3 live up to its billing?

    What's left to say about Halo 3? How about this: All the pomp and circumstance surrounding its launch sure have been distracting. Commercials that look like clips from a Hollywood movie, extravagant collectors' sets that sell for $130, limited-editio...

    You'll Laugh Dying

    You Kill Me (Genius) Funny thing seeing Philip Baker Hall in You Kill Me, as he's already played the role of a drunken hit man's boss in The Matador, to which this feels like a slapshtick-noir sequel. It's also the photonegative of Sexy Beast: Onc...

    History Lessen - Cool old buildings face developmental challenges

    Hot Spot - New lakeside gallery wetting the appetite

    When I first heard the title "But It's a Dry Heat," Tempe Center for the Arts' inaugural show, it was mid-August and I was automatically turned off. In my sweaty misery, I was in no mood to hear any excuses for summer's jerk behavior. But despite my ...

    Freeze Frame - Photo show stops time to reveal micro-mysteries

    When I was 14, my best friend and I stayed up all night in her parents' backyard, sprawled on the trampoline, discussing the relevance of time as we stared into the night sky and chain-smoked a pack of stolen cigarettes. While I don't remember the de...

    Party Pooper - The Wii's latest pool game is a cue stick in the mud

    Billiards is one of the few sports that's as taxing on a computer screen as it is in real life. It's played in pubs, after all, and its legendary star was named "Fats." Unfortunately, most virtual billiard games are behind the 8-ball in terms of q...

    Bloody Horror - Nothing to see here

    Fifteen minutes after the curtain went up on Actors Theatre's The Lieutenant of Inishmore, two audience members ran for the exits. Ten minutes later, five others got up to go. A little while later, four more left one of them nearly breaking my foot...

    Phoenix, the Final Frontier - Brazilians and Brazilians of stars

    People refer to Phoenix as an up-and-coming city; they call it a late-night ghost town, a sweatbox, a suburban desert. But what it looks more and more like all the time is a deserted movie set. And the film that's just wrapped here is a cheesy sci-fi...
