Culture Shock

The Shining Town—OmniRootz Productions presents a new production of Owen Vincent Dodson's play The Shining Town, opening this Friday at Out ch'Yonda (929 Fourth Street SW). The OmniRootz crew did a production of the play a couple years back in the KiMo, and it was a big artistic success for them. They'll pump new life into the script by the Harlem Renaissance playwright—mixing in jazz, hip-hop and poetry. The play runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 3 p.m., through May 27. $10 general, $8 students/seniors. An open dress rehearsal on Thursday, May 18, at 7:30 p.m. is a pay-what-you-can performance. 385-5634.

Americans Abroad

Water Shining Beyond the Fields

In his new book, El Rito poet and painter John Brandi details his travels to Southeast Asia while the United States began its march toward Iraq. The news from home inevitably colors everything Brandi writes in Water Shining Beyond the Fields. Always fearless about taking a stand, Brandi’s politics here reflect not only growing dismay at the winds of war but acknowledgment of a similar impulse long at work in the ancient countries he visits.

Book Reviews

Doggonit, People Like Me

‘‘I am an American, Chicago-born," announced the narrator of Saul Bellow’s classic 1953 novel The Adventures of Augie March. If that book were published today, Augie might also utter Stuart Smiley’s immortal line: "I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and, doggonit, people like me!"
