Bee-Luther-Hatchee

Bee-Luther-Hatchee

Who has the right to a life’s story—the person who lived it, or the people who were touched by it? This is the central unanswerable question behind Bee-Luther-Hatchee, a play by Thomas Gibbons…. Intelligent and unsettling, Bee-Luther-Hatchee pulls off a nearly impossible trick: creating a situation in which two people, at a complete bypass, are both right and […]

Word/Play

Word/Play

No one tells MUSE/IQUE to sit in the corner and be quiet… From Stephen Sondheim to Bob Dylan and Carole King, from Cole Porter to Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda—sometimes lyricists are so brilliant that their work becomes the word. In a local temple of literacy, MUSE/IQUE brings LA’s best musicians and vocalists together to explore how […]

Music, Martinis & the Maestro

Music, Martinis & the Maestro

In Noor’s Sofia ballroom, 240 guests will sip martinis and enjoy an intimate performance by members of the California Philharmonic Orchestra, followed by an interactive discussion with maestro Victor Vener. Now sipping martinis at 2 p.m. may not be on one’s regularly scheduled Sunday, but if one plans accordingly, it could be a delightful near-end to […]

Pasadena POPS in Summer

Pasadena POPS in Summer

No matter what style of music moves your soul, sometimes the setting at a particular moment makes all the difference. No one’s home and your strutting down the hallway belting out Pat Benetar’s “Hit Me with Your Best Shot”… hearing your kid singing and practicing his guitar—hitting his stride during Johnny Cash’s “Walk the Line”… a clambake on […]

Writing Down the Milk-Bones

Writing Down the Milk-Bones

Wilma, my boxer-mix canine companion, has had her breakfast and is ready for work. It’s too hot outside to harry the squirrels, so this morning she’s helping in the office, seated on the floor at my feet. “What are we making?” she asks. She’s very articulate. “Kat Ward is doing us a favor by publishing […]

Farnsworth Free Concerts

Farnsworth Free Concerts

Much of the beauty of summer is being and “doing” outdoors. As Southern Californians, the outdoors is available to us almost every single day, but summer does provoke a feeling all its own. One of the elements that makes summer summer is concerts in the park. The 20th Annual Summer Concert Series at Farnsworth Park in Altadena […]

24th Annual Pasadena Chalk Festival

24th Annual Pasadena Chalk Festival

Over 600 artists take to chalk to create over 200 chalk festivals at the annual Pasadena Chalk Festival. The art of street painting is centuries old. In fact, it goes back to the 16th century when soldiers returning from battle gave homage to the Madonna in front of local churches. Consequently, the name Madonnari or […]

2016 Art on Palm

2016 Art on Palm

One of the art events we love to attend is the biannual Art on Palm held down the hill in a secluded nook called Wildwood Park. It’s small, intimate, and full of arts and crafts from painters, tile makers, and ceramicists to jewelers, weavers, and clothing designers. It’s hard to choose what humorous tile we […]

You Are Here

You Are Here

We glance to the right while walking east on Colorado Boulevard, just before the corner at Hudson Avenue. “790 Colorado” the silver signage says, listing below some tax consultants and a number to call for executive suites. Yet it’s the irregular bobbing and weaving of two red balloons attached to a makeshift easel that catches our attention. […]
