Full frontal comedy

I have to give a shout out to Tacoma Musical Playhouse. It is so solidly on a roll that it should enter the NASCAR circuit. This theater, as I have said several times before in this space, is on fire with hot, hot, hot shows and filled-to-the-rafters audiences, making it

The art of being bad-ass

When you go to watch Season 1, Bout 1 of the Dockyard Derby Dames at the Tacoma Soccer Center Saturday, May 5, you might not know what you’re watching, or what’s involved in what you’re watching. So who better to explain to a newbie observer than a newbie skater herself? Doxie Crux,

Masa’s throw down

When Madonna wrote the song “Holiday,” I wonder if she had Cinco de Mayo in mind. Sure, the 5th of May has cultural, historical and religious backing, but since when has that ever mattered to us? Here in the United States we always manage to squash any of these traditions and use

Fighting fistula in a minor key

Stephen Minor sits in Tully’s with his cell phone and a cup of joe.  He looks vaguely familiar, but in that can’t-quite-place-it way.  Could it be you saw him with his hair slicked back, big Bono-sunglasses on, handing out fliers for his first show with his new project, U277, a

Ten Tiny Dances

Traveling up from Portland, the Ten Tiny Dances impressed and amused the audience with its feats of strength, grace and storytelling last Saturday.  The whole concept of drinking, dining and dance, coming together in an intimate setting, was put forward flawlessly with Jazzbones’ service — and awesome sushi — adding just

Wood!

The 7th North American Sculptural Wood Invitational at American Art Company is an audacious show. How these artisans do what they do with wood boggles the mind. The media is turned wood, which, strictly speaking, means carving forms out of wood that is turned on a lathe. But these artisans

Viva Tacoma!

Once upon a time in Tacoma, Cinco de Mayo meant heading down to the local Mexican establishment and quaffing a grande margarita, on the rocks, no salt, while munching on stale tortilla chips. By now, those stale chips may be a stale memory amid all the other, better activities to choose
