"Complete Shakespeare, Abridged (Revised)" - sublimely silly, but satisfying

Many theater companies search for the perfect formula to fill their seats and ensure a successful season. Often this leads to the overproduction of a few staple scripts. Thankfully, Tacoma Little Theatre's Second Stage goes a different route. If they were using a formula, this is what it would be:

Tuesday, March 5: "Holy Motors"

Innumerable films have been categorized in the marginal depiction of the word "surreal," denoting fantasy, non-conventional atmosphere, the obscure and a singular word used most commonly in describing the film Holy Motors. A wise man once said, "Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the

THE ROCKFORD FILES: Review of the Visiting Nurses and LAKE show at Northern

Had I known what I was going to witness Sunday night at The Northern, I would have gone to much greater lengths to combat the obstacles that nearly cost me my attendance. A last minute decision to bring a friend with me to the Olympia all-ages venue found me sitting

BEST BURGLARY Matter Gallery We don't want to encourage burglaries, but surely the one at Matter Gallery last January deserves just a little more note. The sheer Mission Impossible nature of the crime drew national media attention. Thieves rappeled movie-style into the gallery after breaking through a skylight. Heavy snow had left

Best of Olympia 2013 Food and Drink: Best Barista - Michael Elvin

Michael Elvin of Olympia's Bar Francis is as much a scholar as he is a barista. Elvin, named Olympia's Best Barista, speaks knowledgeably about the flavors of coffee (butterscotch and vanilla were mentioned one recent morning) and methods of its brewing - and he sounds equally expert when he talks chai.

Best of Olympia 2013 Arts & Entertainment: Best Actor - Jason Haws

There's little doubt Jason Haws is Olympia's go-to guy for heady, hardcore theatrical emoting, the kind which requires him to dredge up childhood traumas and bawl like Anne Hathaway after a haircut. (Or who knows, maybe he's balancing his checkbook in there. He insists his method isn't immersive.) After a

Everything about this band is fun, even saying its name. Try it right now, say it out loud, "Erev Rav Klezmer Orchestra." See. Feels good huh? After sitting in on an Erev Rav practice, I can't imagine anyone sitting during a performance. I politely just tapped my foot along; I wasn't

Best of Olympia 2013 Readers' Pick: Best new band - Full Moon Radio

I feel like these babes really get it - Ali Baker owns the bass and vocals, Jessie Jackson rakes that guitar and Sarah Lynn coaxes the drums right along. The combination is dazzling, with strong vocals, righteous lyrics, and a balance of instrumental heaviness and harmony, in other words, good
