Cirque Spectacular

This week I was quite looking forward -- in a perverse kind of way -- to writing an essay about how much I dislike Cirque du Soleil. Ever since experiencing the Canadian company's work for the first time (Alegría, at…

Summary of a Bad Black Movie

First, the good news. Uncharacteristically for a February release targeting African-American viewers, Diary of a Mad Black Woman is not a yuppie romantic comedy featuring Gabrielle Union and Morris Chestnut. Anthony Anderson and Eddie Griffin are nowhere to be seen,…

As You Like It

Most companies save Shakespeare, especially the pastoral plays, for the outdoors in summer. But Cutting Ball Theater creates a magical Forest of Arden -- and a gem of a production -- in the unlikely locale of Theater Rhinoceros' smaller space.…

Fest for the Senses

Sundance has its Slamdance, Slumdance, and, yes, even Son-of-Sam Dance. Here in the Bay Area, where plush megafests saturate their fair share of local screen space, we have the Brainwash Movie Festival as a local version of these upstarts. (Perhaps…
