Lord Shiva is readily known as a Hindu deity, as Shiva the destroyer, “the dissolving force in life.” But Shiva dissolves in order to create, since death is the medium for rebirth into a new life. So the opposites of life and death, and creation and destruction both reside in his character. (Hinduism) On July […]

The Missing Pages of Lewis Carroll

The Missing Pages of Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll wrote extensively. Not only all the Alice books, Jabberwocky, The Hunting of the Snark, etc., but journals. Supposedly, Carroll wrote from his early twenties all the way until a year before his death in 1898. Four volumes are presumed to have been lost, but all surviving nine volumes were eventually published. Intriguingly, ten […]

In a Word, Hillary & Clinton

In a Word, Hillary & Clinton

A so-called “on-the-road comedy with a jazz soul” is called Mad Beat Hip & Gone. (Do we need to be trippin’ to understand that title?) Your Name Will Follow You Home has such elements as Charlie Chaplin, the House Committee on Un-American Activities, 50’s B-monster movies, and “fake” Latinos. Greek myth meets East L.A. in Mojada: […]

Koertge at Boston Court

Koertge at Boston Court

The drive is okay:  A.C. on high (it’s torrid in Los Angeles, with the usual muslin-yellow sky), radio up, some gratifying amiable/envious/admiring/lubricious glances. At the mall, she has to park at the top of a new structure, following a ramp so circuitous it’s like an inner ear. Is she going to emerge under the invisible […]

The Children, A World Premiere at Boston Court

The Children, A World Premiere at Boston Court

You guys know Medea, right? Not personally, but as a mythical figure and a Euripedes play? She kills her kids to spite her husband? That one. Okay, so imagine that a character from the play rescues the kids from their mother and accidentally time travels with them to modern-day Maine in the middle of a hurricane? That’s The Children, […]

Young Opera at Boston Court

Young Opera at Boston Court

Unless you are a devotee of the subculture, there aren’t many opportunities to hear live opera singers outside of the concert hall. There’s an opera-singing magician who shows up to Indelible Ink sometimes, but besides him, the only time I’ve heard opera is, well, at the opera. There’s no “Behind the Music” for the opera […]
