Through Nov. 30: "Little Women"

With 150 years of popularity, it's no wonder that Louisa May Alcott's Little Women was the number one patron pick for plays to be performed during the 2014/2015 season at Lakewood Playhouse. The script highlights most of the major plot points of the novel and takes the audience on

Over the past year Salon Refu has established itself as the edgiest art gallery in Olympia, if not the edgiest south of Seattle. But being in the avant-garde is not enough for gallery owner Susan Christian; she also insists that the art in her gallery be skillfully

Theater Review: "Uncle Vanya"

At intermission, one of the patrons at St. Martin's University's production of Uncle Vanya said, "I hope there's a happy ending." "Sweetheart, please," his companion replied, laughing. "This is Chekhov. Chekhov never ends happily." Even casual theatergoers are familiar with the name of turn-of the-20th-century Russian playwright Anton Pavlovich Chekhov. Few, however,

Visual Edge: "Pop Departures" at Seattle Art Museum

"Pop Departures" at Seattle Art Museum is a look back at work by the leading pop artists of the 1960s and a jump forward to more contemporary artists such as Jeff Koons, Margaria Cabrera and Mickalene Thomas who continue to follow in the footsteps of those bad boys. There are whole

Michael Moore is a legend to certain Gen-X liberals like myself. Just as mainstream journalism was beginning its downward descent into sensationalism, partisanship and - well, let's not sugarcoat it - outright lying, Moore came along. Combining investigative reporting with a sometimes-mischievous sense of humor, the documentarian from Flint, Michigan,

Sunday, Nov. 23: Alice Cooper

Then there's Alice Cooper, born Vincent Furnier, who pretty much invented live heavy metal spectacle. Long before Britney Spears draped a serpent awkwardly about her neck, Cooper was welcoming us to his nightmare by tossing a live chicken (not, as press reports claimed the next day, biting its head off),

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) was a German Romantic composer who, all his life, aspired to be a Classicist in the Beethoven mold - to the extent that he refused to allow titles tacked onto any of his instrumental-genre works: symphonies, concertos, string quartets and quintets, piano trios and quartets, piano sonatas,

I imagine there was a time when my parents lamented the passing of doo-wop from their radio dial. Then Bruno Mars came along. So perhaps one day, when I'm old and decrepit, I'll be surprised and delighted by the return of wailing, distortion-crazed electric guitars to popular music. As it

This is a huuuuuge week for live music in T-town, so when our esteemed editor insisted on squeezing in an obscure folk-and-blues band from Santa Cruz, I was intrigued. Then I listened to the album, and all became clear. Marty O'Reilly & the Old Soul Orchestra is one hell of
