Through Feb. 28: "Tacomapocalypse III"

As Valentine's Day draws ever-nigh, Tacoma's resident Valentine's grumps plot to overthrow the day of love. Kendra Breeden and Stuart M. Dempster of Treefish Studio like to frame their "Tacomapocalypse" as an art show at Amocat Cafe, but the truth is each year this dynamic duo strives

VOTE NOW: Tournament of Sandwiches

Everyone eats sandwiches. After all, it's hard to really screw up a sandwich, since it requires just enough skill to slap a couple of slices of meat and maybe a little cheese between two pieces of bread. But by the same token, it's also hard to elevate the sandwich into

Mind-blowing moondancers of Cirque du Soleil's "Amaluna"

  I've seen five Cirque du Soleil productions now and loved every one. They're circuses that forgo animals in favor of the staggering variety of things human beings can do, and they share a looseness of plot and fanciful, go-for-broke design philosophy. Just opened in Seattle is Cirque's newest touring show,

I managed to catch a goodly chunk of Olympia Family Theater's 2008 production of James and the Giant Peach, despite performing in a thriller next door. If you enjoyed the 2008 version, you'll find OFT's current revival uses the same script. The costumes are the same or similar, and the

Through Feb. 10: "The Musical of Musicals, The Musical!"

Everyone likes a good joke and being in on the joke is certainly better than BEING the joke. Well, usually. Certainly, people that take themselves too seriously are a drag and theater people who take themselves too seriously are often insufferable. Thankfully, Tacoma Musical Playhouse not only

Monday: Comedy Open Mic

Standup comedy hasn't evolved much since the glory days of ventriloquist and puppet. Every so often, there's a Gallagher smashing watermelons or a musical funnyman like Jack Black, but for the most part, comedy is a dude on a stage with a microphone, plodding through a joke-punchline-new-joke routine. You're funny. You

You bounced around on New Orleans blog posts last week. You're now convinced the city is like a quirky, 20-something daughter who insists on hosting Thanksgiving dinner at her minuscule shotgun house in a "weird" part of town. Things are going well at first - no one's arguing about politics
