Art Magnified

Ragtime

Hiland Theatre

This epic musical based on E.L. Doctorow's famous novel conjures up the steaming melting pot of New York City at the beginning of the 20th century. Three interwoven stories explore the American dream within a colorful musical landscape inspired by the ragtime greats of yore. I'm told a replica of a Model T will be built right on stage. This Musical Theatre Southwest performance opens this weekend at the Hiland Theatre, running Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through Sept. 19. $11, $23, $30. To reserve tickets call the MST box office at 262-9301.

The fantastic tales in Sheryl Tempchin's small press venture, Zahir, which is scheduled to appear three times a year, seem to me a conscious aspiration toward literary status within the speculative fiction genre. This isn't surprising, since Tempchin's marvelous short fantasy, "The Japanese Fan," appeared in an issue of Rosebud I reviewed in an October 2002 issue of theAlibi.
