Arvada Center: "Bus Stop"

Feb 17, 2017

“It takes strong men and women to love… people strong enough inside themselves to love…without humiliation.”

Pygmalion | Phamaly Theatre Company

Feb 14, 2017

One of George Bernard Shaw’s best known plays, Pygmalion is a wonderfully witty reworking of the classic Greek myth of Pygmalion and Galatea. Inspiring the familiar musical, My Fair Lady, this story finds a bedraggled cockney flower girl struggling with the language of love, power, and identity. Shaw was one of the earliest and most vocal critics of classism and misogyny. So, in this story, Eliza Doolittle truly achieves what Henry Higgins, with his clueless bullying and inveterate old bachelordom has set her up for—independence!

Jazz Afternoon at the Grammys

Feb 13, 2017

The most exciting part of the “biggest night in music” happens in the afternoon, when artists in jazz and other categories are recognized for their work.  The envelope please.

Best Jazz Vocal Album: Gregory Porter was the odds-on favorite to take the jazz vocal category.  His solid performance throughout “Take Me To The Alley” was among the most played on KUVO airwaves.  His message after receiving the gramophone trophy: “Keep spreading love. No love dying.” (LA Times)
