    Fuller Craft Museum

    By: Mark Favermann - Mar 16th, 2023

    Like Sutton Hoo, King Tut’s Tomb, and Scythian Gold, the most exhilarating archeological finds are often the discoveries of beautifully crafted metal objects. A gorgeous shiny object suggests riches of untold value, something precious with which to feather our nests. Viewing the Fuller Craft Museum’s compelling show Creative Alloys is a bit like peeking at an elegantly revealed excavation filled with treasures.

    By: Victor Cordell - Mar 15th, 2023

    In its essence, the opera is an intimate triangle of love, predation, betrayal, and murder. Yet the intimacy of “Tosca” plays against a grand canvas of three unrelated settings, which LVO executes deftly.

When you arrive, you are impelled to look around Rancho Los Cerritos.  The area is wooded, a lone rabbit makes its way to a tree, looks around and across the road. It bounds off into the woods.

  • Exploring Antarctica

    Bottoming Out on the Globe

    By: Victor Cordell - Mar 13th, 2023

    Friends have asked for reports about our Antarctic cruise. I have broken it into categories for picking and choosing. It was a 9-day journey on Atlas Ocean Voyages, a new luxury brand, on the World Navigator. We had previously decided to give the Antarctic a miss because of the potential misery of four days on the Drake Passage. Then we learned of "Fly the Drake" (i.e., launching the cruise from South Georgia Island rather than Argentina or Chile) and became interested.

    By: Victor Cordell - Mar 13th, 2023

    Greta Oglesby gloriously reprises the role of Fannie Lou Hamer that she performed at Oregon Shakes’ vast outdoor Elizabethan Theatre.  She brings a speaking voice brimming with passion and conviction, as well as a strong and melodious singing voice.  She stalks the stage with a slight hobble as a wounded warrior who is too busy planning the next demonstration to let her nagging injuries slow her down.

    August Strindberg's "Totentanz" had its opening in Berlin at Bertolt Brecht's famed theater, the Berliner Ensemble. Written in 1900 it is one of those plays that lets one shudder about the senselessness and cruel relationship some couples endure and call it a marriage.

  • Pictures from Home by Sharr White

    At NY's Studio 54

    By: Karen Isaacs - Mar 11th, 2023

    Let’s admit that the play has some resemblances to Death of a Salesman. Irving is a traveling salesman gone weeks at time, just as Willie Loman was.  He is also a flawed man. His relationship with his son is contentious.  Like Linda in the Miller play, his wife is loyal to him but aware of the realities he can’t quite admit and tries to keep the peace between him and Larry.
