Devilish opera

These days there may be a good number of people suggesting that they’d sell their soul for a good job. It’s a point Kathryn Smith, General Director of Tacoma Opera, acknowledges even as she sees value in the arts. “All of what we do is important, but it’s not an electricity

Holmes!

I always hate it when people can’t explain a movie or theater production. It makes it seem like they didn’t watch the show carefully enough. But after seeing Centerstage Theatre’s production of Crucifer of Blood — A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, by Paul Giovanni and directed by Vince Brady, I can

Review: 'Footloose' is too loose

Footloose seems like a natural candidate for adaptation to a stage musical. It has a cheeseball inspirational plot (big-city kid rolls into rural religious town, learns to fit in while teaching them the joy of not banning dancing). The story is centered entirely around the prospect of dance numbers. It
