REVIEW: H.M.S. Pinafore

It’s always fun to see an actor steal a production, as Thomas Campbell does in the opening scene to Hayes Theatre’s giddy and hilarious new production of H.M.S. Pinafore. This is one of the most delightful and popular of Gilbert and Sullivan’s light operas; it’s a great moment when an audience collectively thinks, You know, […]

Suzi Q

Suzi Quatro is, certifiably, a living legend. At age 23, the diminutive, leather-clad Quatro, strutted onto the world stage, jetting rock riffs from her bass guitar like a gush from a fire-hose. From then on she has reigned unchallenged as the queen of rock and inspired women, not only in music but in life, to […]

Montaigne

Montaigne’s second album is an incredible feat of pop songwriting and performance which isn’t simply a sugary hit for the senses.

Supergroup

When All Our Exes Live In Texas singer Georgia Mooney first envisioned the Supergroup concept it was meant to be a short-lived show. Originally debuting in April as part of an Artist In Residence program at Giant Dwarf Theatre the Supergroup saw a range of guests take to one stage together and combine their talents. […]

THE NAKED CITY – SMELLS LIKE AN OLD CARDIGAN

It’s no secret that the kind of ‘fine’ art that is traded through auction houses like Sotheby’s and Christie's is often viewed as an investment opportunity rather than a recognition of the work’s intrinsic value. Million-dollar paintings often end up in bank vaults and may never see the light of day, let alone an appreciative […]
