BWW Review: Zoetic Stage's THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME at Adrienne Arsht Center- Brilliant!
by Cristina Pla-Guzman - Jan 29, 2019

Zoetic Stage and the Adrienne Arsht Center's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time takes you emotionally hostage and doesn't let go until the last line is uttered. The play revolves around Christopher, a fifteen year old, who is exceptionally intelligent but not equipped to deal with everyday life. When he is accused of killing his neighbor's dog, he makes it his mission to find the true culprit, which leads him to a life altering discovery. The crushing moments of the play mixed with solitary moments of joy had the audience up on its feet before the curtain call.

BWW Review: Love and Laughter Warms MN Opera's Luscious THE ITALIAN STRAW HAT
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Jan 29, 2019

n the midst of a polar vortex this winter, MN Opera sends an early valentine filled with warmth to the Twin Cities in their production The Italian Straw Hat at the Ordway Center's Orchestra Hall. This comic Italian opera set in 1950's Paris plays similar to a French farce while sung in Italian and accompanied with English subtitles. Composed and written by Nino Rota and his wife Ernesta, the composer earned accolades for his film scores written for Federico Fellini, and "The Godfather," both the first and second versions. In this opera, Rota's mid-century comedy, a groom's horse eats an expensive straw hat on the morning of his wedding day while his father in law's patent leather shoes fit too tight. Sound extraordinary? Yes, all is wondrous mayhem as this Parisian wedding spins out of control and delightful events happen on stage throughout this enchanting opera. (more...)

Body Painting: Spiritual Predecessor Of Eye Shadow
by Barry Kostrinsky - Feb 7, 2019

Somehow we hominoids have a way of demystifying and materializing our roots. Everyday hundreds of millions of ape descendants put on make-up, eye liner, eye shadow and lipstick and take brushes to their faces. These are the major masses of body painters in the world. As with perfume we only think of this as hiding or cloaking a smell, embellishing a surface superficially or a way to pass off as something we are not in our culture. Yet, the root of perfume is transcendence to a higher plain. And yes, body painting too has deep multi-cultural roots that aim to elevate the spirit, connect with that which is more than us and to transform our mundane experience into a spiritual awakening.
