Culture Shock

William D. Crumpton worked as a guard at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe. A couple weeks ago, in the wee hours of the morning, Crumpton called the police to report a robbery in progress. The museum, as well as the Santa Fe Police Department, now believes that the thief was Crumpton himself.

Crumpton allegedly attempted to steal $14,000 in cash along with a Georgia O'Keeffe painting, the tiny eight-by-six-inch "Red Canna." Both the cash and the painting were recovered, and Crumpton has been charged with three felony counts of embezzlement and one count of criminal damage to museum property. Thankfully, the damaged property was not the painting, which was recovered unscathed.

You might remember him as the director of Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde and American Breakdown. Eugene Douglas, an assistant professor of acting at the University of New Mexico, now has a new project on his plate. Acting Now is a free quarterly online journal dedicated to exploring the culture of acting. The first issue went online New Year's Day. I spent a couple hours poking around the site. Acting Now has an attractive, clean design, and it's nice and easy to navigate. This month's feature articles include interviews with actress Viola Davis and director Neil Labute, a piece on vocal directors, and a lengthy article on Albuquerque's own Tricklock Company. The site also features a "green room," where future readers can chat with each other, and a "letters to the editor" section—both anxiously awaiting some action. All in all, the online zine looks pretty cool. Actors and theater buffs should check it out at
