Playing the Bad Guy

With actor David Stahl currently appearing as the wicked Richard III and actor Katherine Catmull having recently played the evil Goneril in King Lear, the challenge of playing villains seemed a ripe topic to launch a series of artist-to-artist conversations on craft.

Tornado in Slo Mo

Tornado in Slo Mo, the autobiographical album by Darcie Deaville, contains songs drawn from Deaville's tumultuous past that ring with a saving not-gonna-take-it-anymore grace, but her one-woman show at Hyde Park Theatre based on the same material falls way short of compelling.

Richard III

In the new production of Shakespeare's Richard III staged by the Disciples of Melpomene, it's the crafty and well-crafted portrayal of Richard by David Stahl that drives this show -- a performance built around performances by a master actor on the stage of life.
