by Erin Leigh Peck - Jan 7, 2014

Wally Watthead and His Lost Glow is magician Janne Raudaskoski's experiential magic theatre performance for the entire family.

by Erin Leigh Peck - Dec 3, 2013

Clearly, Once is a perfect show for a family with teenage children. It doesn't pander in any way, yet it's message is so pure and beautiful, it becomes holistically wholesome by the end of the show. It's a love story. There is no violence. Women are not exploited. Children are not harmed. But there is pain and heartbreak and loss and when those things are filtered through the minds and mouths of working class Irish folk, the F word shows up. A lot. (more...)
