Review: The Book of Mormon

Fish don't get much farther out of water than the leads in this Trey Parker-Matt Stone-Robert Lopez musical: two Utah-bred Mormons as lily-white as their starched, short-sleeved shirts in a Ugandan village beset by poverty, AIDS, and a vicious warlord for whom "shove The Book of Mormon up your ass" is not a figure of speech.

Review: Mark Morris Dance Group

If you could capture the essence of childhood play – the boundless energy; the unself-conscious immersion in pretending; the relentless inventiveness; the sheer delight in creativity – and channel it through an adult, you'd have … well, you'd have Mozart, wouldn't you? You'd also have the Mark Morris Dance Group in Mozart Dances. Read More | Comment »

Get Up Into the Arts Midwest Conference

That amazing duo of improvisers. Merlin lately flexing her prodigious improv-teaching powers at Zach Theatre. McCormick voicing Agent Washington for Rooster Teeth's Red vs. Blue and generally fomenting creation throughout the city. Now, together again, onstage at The New Movement. Read More | Comment »

Review: Liz Callaway

Not to slight her marvelous recordings, but you haven't really heard Liz Callaway sing until you've seen her. In number after mesmerizing number during the first of her current two-night stand for Austin Cabaret Theatre, this Tony nominee would transform herself as she dove into the heart of the song.

'PowerUP' Taking Reservations

If you thought Allison Orr worked some choreographic magic with some men working leafblowers and a fleet of sanitation trucks, imagine what she's likely to conjure with 18 linemen and as many utility poles. That's what awaits you in PowerUP, Orr's collaboration with Austin Energy that premieres Sept. 21 and 22. Read More | Comment »

They Call Him Blowfly

If you can imagine "Weird" Al Yankovic crossed with Redd Foxx in his blue-humor phase, you're still not quite grokking the totality of what the musical nasty-factory of Blowfly is and does. Read More | Comment »

Heavenly Hyrulian Harmonies

Ba da da daaaaaaaa! For longtime fans of gaming and younger generations alike, the four notes that play when a chest opens in a Zelda game are as iconic and memorable as the first four notes of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. Read More | Comment »

'Ida,' Ho!

Princess Ida. Not a title that's in heavy rotation on the Gilbert & Sullivan Hit Parade. Indeed, this eighth collaboration by the musical team has never been produced by the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Austin in its 37 years of mounting their comic operas. Even Artistic Director Ralph MacPhail Jr. hadn't staged the work. Read More | Comment »

Gender, Sex, and Fabric

The problem of the skirt – at least the long, voluminous skirt, as demonstrated in Nicole Roerick’s Morose Beauty – is one of access. Designed for the ease of the other, not the wearer, the skirted woman paws at the fabric, twisting and groping like an injured dog at its cone. Read More | Comment »

Review: ASO With Quattro Mani

The rest of Austin may have been experiencing unseasonably cool temperatures, but inside Dell Hall last Friday night spring was in the air, as the Austin Symphony Orchestra brought forth the freshness and vitality in a pair of overtures by Beethoven, a prelude by Delius, and 21st century works by Paul Lansky and Graham Fitkin.
