" bears about as much resemblance to the drama Thornton Wilder wrote as chalk does cheese...."

Nov. 20, 2009 Arts Feature by Robert Faires

The Man Who Wasn't There
The story is rife with the Coens' ripe ambivalence, a black seriocomic opera of fouled-up American dreams, and a meditation on ambivalence that is itself often as ambiguous as the emotional meanderings of its protagonist, a small-town barber. The film's black-and-white image processing is stunning.

Our Town, Our Time
Zachary Scott Theatre Center's production of The Laramie Project retells the story of Matthew Shepard's murder in a compelling, heartfelt way, but it also tells a town's story and gives us the opportunity to see our town in its reflection.

Play On!
In the backstage comedy Anton in Show Business, playwright Jane Martin wittily paints the contemporary stage as a madhouse overrun by loons and lunatics so preoccupied with money, image, and themselves that they can hardly be bothered to create art. And the State Theater Company's production takes us inside the insanity with an air of playfulness that keeps the audience primed for a good time.
