    CARRY IT BACK TO OLD VIRGINNY

    After seeing the works on paper in the latest group show being hosted by MARS Gallery, a snide adage pops to mind: "Those who can, do; those who can't, teach." Imported from Richmond, Virginia's 1708 Gallery, a well-established artists' cooperative...

    UNHAPPINESS IS

    Some musicals beg you to like them. They brandish their sincerity as a weapon--you're hit over the head, grabbed by the throat and throttled. If you try to resist, well, you're the kind of dour-hearted drudge who ought to stick to Eugene O'Neill revi...

    AMERICAN GRAFFITIAEROSOL ARTISTS ANSWER SCRAWL OF THE WILD

    Mention the word "graffiti" and most people will go ballistic. What scrolls up on the average man-on-the-street's mental monitor are visions of once-virgin buildings, fences and even freeway overpass signs scarred by the unsightly spray-can "tagging"...

    TOTALLY BOSS!

    Everyone in the audience was laughing like crazy. I saw a man on the aisle wipe away tears. The laughter was the from-the-gut kind, and it was for a song called "A Secretary Is Not a Toy." I laughed as hard as anybody, because the experience had the ...

    PUPIL HAZE

    All through Park Your Car in Harvard Yard, I kept wondering if the characters were ever going to stop whining. But these were whining kinds of people. They would whine about anything--the weather, childhood, tourists and every person in the past who ...

    That's All Folk? - Two folk art shows in the Valley

    If an art collection is the unconscious manifestation of the collector, then two folk-art shows on display in the Valley underscore the enormous disparity in the visions of different collectors in the same genre--a genre that's increasingly popular b...

    FIDDLE FADDLE

    The Robber Bridegroom works hard at telling everyone they're having a good time. The characters are all eccentrics, the pratfalls continuous, the musical numbers relentless. But all this in-your-face cheeriness can't really help a show like The Rob...

    HOW THE WEFT WAS WON

    From the street, the pieces on the walls of Scottsdale's Bentley Gallery look like large, somber, color-field paintings of the mid-1950s to late 60s. Pivotal Mark Rothkos, maybe. Or early Frank Stellas. But those mysterious, striped "paintings" hap...

    GRAY AREA

    The title of Athol Fugard's Blood Knot refers to the unbreakable bond between two brothers. But in Fugard's two-character, one-set play, the brothers--one apparently black, the other apparently white, but both classified "colored" under the apartheid...

    SAME OLD SONG

    When Of Thee I Sing was first staged in 1931 at the height of the Depression, it was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for its gang of pompous, Senator Packwood-style legislators who wave cigars and ogle the young ladies as overtly as they can. Plus ?a chan...
