Review: The Whale

lies like truth

Brothers In Arms: Les Yeux Noirs Rock Yoshi's
Les Yeux Noirs, a six-piece, French Gypsy/Yiddish music band fronted by the virtuostic, fiddle-playing brothers Eric and Olivier Slabiak, have visited San Francisco 12 times to date. I'm ashamed to say that I only got around to experiencing their sound for the first time last night.

One night of Abe Lincoln in Illinois
City Lit Theater will present a concert reading of Robert E. Sherwood's Pulitzer-prize winning play Abe Lincoln in Illinois on the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth, according to a news release. It is a one-night-only event and will cleverly cost audience members $5.01, a Lincoln dollar and a Lincoln coin.

Edgy Rude Guerilla: edging out San Diego’s Cygnet for a SoCal premiere! (but getting edged out?)
News has filtered down that Santa Ana’s Rude Guerilla Theatre Company (RGTC) is planning some major changes, splitting into two separate companies—one artistically pragmatic, the other characteristically not, if I understand it correctly.

Toxic Avenger Musical to Play Off-Broadway

Nothing to lose but self-respect
Verbatim theatre continues to be a productive development on British stages. Black Watch, Gregory Burke's searing account of soldiers in Iraq, is the most prominent of shows that draw their text - sometimes literally - from interviews ..

Patrick McGoohan
I must pause to honor the memory of Patrick Magoohan the star and co-creator of the milestone super-mod series The Prisoner, who died Monday. The Prisoner was a mainstay of my youth and probably more than anything else made me the paranoid curmudgeonly outsider I am today. So thank you, Number 6..
