Theater Review: Lakewood Playhouse's "Narnia" is child’s play

In the face of all opposition, I remain resolute in my conviction that Lewis's fantasies were incoherent and his nonfiction only slightly more rational. I suspect, therefore, that Jen Ankrum, director of Lakewood Playhouse's holiday retelling of The Lion,

For those just joining us, I'm a C. S. Lewis hater. In the face of all opposition, I remain resolute in my conviction that Lewis's fantasies were incoherent and his nonfiction only slightly more rational.

Christmas in Las Vegas. It has a nice ring to it - the most unholy city in the world on the holiest holiday. What's a Vegas kinda Xmas all about? There will be a long line for $1.59 pork sandwiches. I'm sure you could expect ringing jackpots and clanking coins

I keep hearing about DBST. Facebook feeds, fliers around town and in conversations overheard at the bar. So, when I saw they were playing the growing tradition of the winter "Soulstice" event held in the Olympia Ballroom, I figured it was time to check them out. A Youtube search brings

If Tacoma is known for one thing, it's that we're gritty. If we're known for two things, the second would be our awesomeness when it comes to throwing a benefit for one of our friends or neighbors who is down on their luck/has cancer/was hit by a car/had their band

You got a hankering for gingers? I know I do. No, I'm not confessing some dirty little secret. I'm talking about the kind of ginger that comes from a root - and besides, my love of the other "gingers" is already well-known. The Tacoma Brewing Co. is celebrating both kinds
