Seussical

No use mincing words: Seussical, the latest show in Tacoma Little Theatre's 99th season, is a supremely open-hearted, deliriously goofy spectacle, and in its final two weeks of shows, it is not to be missed. This is a vivid, boisterous, and exhilaratingly staged production, a tornado of a show that somehow manages

Comic talents come and go -- some more deservedly than others -- but no performer in our time has earned more enduring success than the legendary Lily Tomlin. Born in Detroit, Mary Jean Tomlin spent her 20s acting and doing standup off-Broadway. She performed under a variation on her mother's

The current map of Europe is a relatively recent development in that continent's rich history. Spain, for example, wasn't united until 1833. Before that, the region was a collection of kingdoms, counties and dependencies. Andalusia, for example, spanned the southern coast, while kingdoms to the north included (from east to

Jay Chandrasekhar, super trouper

Comic multi-talent Jay Chandrasekhar is a man of three divine names. His last name, pronounced "Chan-drah-SAY-kahr," is Sanskrit for "Moon Crown" and was an incarnation of Shiva the destroyer.

Portland libations

When you need to get away, but not so far away that a plane ticket is required, Portland is a great destination for a day trip or weekend. It's just far enough to feel detached from the humdrum of the daily grind but only a couple hours away. Plus, there's

Moore history

The 7th Infantry Division occupies a significant chapter in Joint Base Lewis-McChord's century of service. Within that chapter are several pages penned by Lt. Gen. Hal Moore when he served in the division in 1952 and commanded it from May 1970 to March 1971. Born in 1922 in the Bluegrass State of

A colonial connection

The ideals of the American Revolution take on a life of their own when remembered by those who have a direct connection to it. In 1876, the centennial of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, a group of men in San Francisco who were descendants of patriots involved in the

Seattle celebrates holidays on stage

Like traffic and egg nog-spiced everything, you can count on Seattle delivering Broadway-quality musicals on stage during the month of December. And this year is no exception with Elf in town this week only, and Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn on stage a couple more weeks. Both productions are G-rated fun

A Very Special Holiday Special

Successfully executing holiday humor is, to me, an almost impossible feat. You're basically given two options of approach: deliver the sort of corny, gentle, observational comedy about the rigors of holiday shopping and family interactions, or, you commit to subverting deeply ingrained traditions aiming to get laughs from audiences breathing

Sudden impact

It might be a stretch to say there is beautiful art in the exhibition "A History of Violence" at South Puget Sound Community College. But that depends on your idea of what constitutes beauty. The paintings in this show are rough. The colors are harsh; some might even be considered

In Three Easy Pieces, I break down a specific type of pop culture in three steps -- starting at its birth, and arriving at today. This month: diss tracks, those songs where one artist takes aim at another, in the process airing pungently dirty laundry and giving the listener a

I recall an interview with indie rock vet Andrew Bird where he was talking about St. Vincent -- specifically, about Annie Clark, the frontwoman and mastermind behind the project -- where he talked about how happy he was to see her moving away from her more clinical, mathematical composition of

Falling asleep during the day?

Are you falling asleep during the middle of the day even after sleeping eight hours? Does your bed partner complain about your loud, disruptive snoring? If so, you may be suffering from sleep apnea, a severe sleep disorder that can lead to more serious health issues and even a shortened
