Theatre Review: Straight White Men attempts to address privilege

 Lisa Much Theatre Review: Straight White Men attempts to address privilege

I recall a specific moment in January 2012 when a friend and I, after seeing a show where four white straight male characters talk for two hours, ranted about the prevalence of this type of production at that moment in time. We even made a joke of it, “I need more white, Protestant males in […]

Theatre Review: The Addams Family Delivers a Fairly Tame Production

 Lisa Much Theatre Review: The Addams Family Delivers a Fairly Tame Production

The Addams Family-A New Musical opened on Broadway in 2010. This came with a surge of other annoying, pre-existing character-themed shows including Elf the Musical, Spiderman, Catch me if you Can, and Sister Act to name a few. Now, for its second national tour, The Addams Family found its way to Columbus’s Palace Theatre. The […]

 Lisa Much Theatre Review: Available Light’s We are Proud to Present…

After witnessing Available Light Theatre’s We are Proud to Present…, the audience kind of just sits there for a moment, unable to move, as though punched directly in the stomach. I thought about this for a while for I felt unsure what to write. This play leaves the audience with everything to say, yet no […]

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Katherine Kadish: Looking Back, Moving Forward

It’s been a long winter. It’s been a cold winter and it’s been a grey winter. It’s also been a winter that doesn’t appear to be in any particular hurry to leave. Even as I type this (ten days into spring?), there is snow on the ground. Perhaps that’s why Katherine Kadish’s new paintings and […]

Film Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Hope Madden Hope Madden Film Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Let’s be honest, film critics love Wes Anderson. How can we help ourselves? An auteur if ever there was one, he owns a style unlike any other, marries whimsy with melancholy, gathers impeccable casts, draws beautifully unexpected performances – basically, he invites us into an imagination so wonderful and unusual that we are left breathless […]

Restaurant Review: Phatt Taco

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Phatt Taco

Downtown’s Phatt Taco comes enriched with a good bit of philosophy. It uses organic, fancy, baby greens; it’s got a juice bar. Phatt Taco’s cooler is stocked with non-HFC (that’s High Fructose Corn Syrup) soda pops. All the philosophical stuff doesn’t really hit you in the face when you walk through the door. But it’s […]
