Everybody Loves Rae Armantrout (Red Hen at Boston Court)

Everybody Loves Rae Armantrout (Red Hen at Boston Court)

Who is this Rae Troutfish person, you ask? Why, only the most recent winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry, for her collection Versed, which, I assure you, is really, really good. She’ll be reading Monday the 7th at the very spiffy Boston Court, along with the multi-talented Charles Harper Webb, a fixture on the [...]

ANW Does The Comedy of Errors

ANW Does The Comedy of Errors

I have given up trying to pun, in the titles of these posts, on A Noise Within, Southern California’s premier classical theater repertory company. Let’s just cut to the chase: they’re doing Shakespeare, which is about as classical as the repertory gets (except for those Greek dudes, though very few people perform those in the [...]

The Eagle Rock Local Folk Fest

The Eagle Rock Local Folk Fest

Folk music is one of those things that’s changing all the time but never really changes, if you know what we mean (i.e. if you understand italics). Or maybe it’s one of those things that never seems to change but really changes all the time? Either way, it’s just as wonderful a thing now as [...]

Country Joe, sans Fish, at Caltech

Country Joe, sans Fish, at Caltech

Attention old hippies of Pasadena: Country Joe—yes, that Country Joe—is playing Caltech this Saturday. Although known mostly for the “I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-To-Die Rag,” Joe McDonald, who turns 70 next year, has made more than 30 records, including a Woody Guthrie album way back in 1969—you know, before it was cool to like Woody. Evidently he’s become quite [...]

Cendrillon at Parson’s Nose

Cendrillon at Parson’s Nose

The mission of the wonderfully named Parson’s Nose Productions is to introduce “classic theater to family audiences,” through original one-hour adaptations of dramatic masterpieces. These staged readings are designed to be both smart enough for grownups and boisterous enough for kids. They used to put on shows at Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters, but have recently [...]

Hats! Women’s Hats! Lots of Them!

Hats! Women’s Hats! Lots of Them!

Hats—what are they good for? Well, they offer protection from the elements. And they can be quite fashionable, of course. And, perhaps most importantly, they serve as fairly prominent symbols of socio-economic status (honestly, what doesn’t these days?). If you’ve ever been curious about these sorts of things as they pertain to hats, especially women’s [...]

The Music of the Blue Four at the Norton Simon

The Music of the Blue Four at the Norton Simon

If you’re like most people, you’ve spent a great deal of time wondering about the connections between the avant-garde visual and musical arts of the early 20th century—in particular, between the works of the Blue Four (Kandinsky, Klee, Feininger, Jawlensky) and the contemporaneous piano works of Stravinsky et al. Well, have we got a show [...]

Jazzmen Arnay and Livingston at the Parkway Grill

Jazzmen Arnay and Livingston at the Parkway Grill

Jazz pianist David Arnay is a longtime Pasadenan, USC Music Prof, music director of the Parkway Grill, and all-around good guy (did we mention he’s married to H-P co-author Jill Ganon?). He plays a regular Friday set at the Parkway, accompanied by a rotating cast of bassists. Next up is Edwin Livingston, who has a [...]

The Three Musketeers of Caltech

The Three Musketeers of Caltech

Brian Brophy and his merry band of Caltech thespians are at it again, this time with a fast-paced and fun adaptation of Dumas’ The Three Musketeers, a classic of adventure, male camaraderie, and swashbuckling (indeed, Wikipedia displays a picture of D’Artagnan and co. on its “swashbuckler” page. In case you were curious). Like all productions [...]
