Manifest Pussy is a deeply personal and profound her-story, the story of how Shakina went from a nice Jewish boy growing up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, dreaming of dressing up in the gossamer gowns that were forbidden to him, to the relentlessly exuberant, terrifically talented, hilarious and kind buxom star of stage and screen.

50 years ago, in the summer of 1969, the only group in pop-culture that could claim to be bigger than John, Paul, George and Ringo were Neil, Buzz and Michael. But 50 years down the line, in 2019, only ONE of those SEVEN names is actually in danger of going extinct in the collective imagination of the public at large.

World's Strongest Man is the magnificent third solo album by Gaz Coombes. Inspired variously by Grayson Perry's the Descent of Man, Frank Ocean's Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked toxic masculinity and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides), it's a truly remarkable collection of eleven deeply personal songs each set to expansive, addictive melody. From the deep soul purge of the title track to the coruscating Fripp-goes-motorik sprint of 'Deep Pockets' via the gorgeous cyclonic ballad 'Slow Motion Life' and the raw-as-hell stream of consciousness panic attack in 'Vanishing Act,' World's Strongest Man is a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock'n'roll record.

As America begins to recognise the problems of mass incarceration, this intensely researched show takes the issue one step further to ask how it can deal with mass reintegration, especially for those inmates who have faced months or years in solitary confinement. Solitary is a wordless piece of physical theatre following one man's descent into memory and madness using ensemble, Lecoq based techniques and classically trained Juilliard musicians to pull audiences into the isolated world of what inmates call 'the box'. As it explores the lasting effects of this extreme form of imprisonment, Solitary asks what the purpose of the penal system is: rehabilitation, or punishment? And what happens when the door is opened?

With their fate in the hands of the buyer, Jonathan's final sale price of his stunning eco-chic home beat out Drew's by a margin of $8,000.

Well, it's that time of the year again--time for a look-back on what was worth making note of during the calendar year that's about to come to an end. It's from a totally personal, subjective point of view, of course, but frankly that's the way opera-lovers always seem to like it, n'est-ce pas? The productions worth noting come from places big, small and in-between, from composers old as the hills to freshly minted or somewhere in between (likewise the performers), from traditional or boldly modern to simply stand up and sing.
