Expose Yourself

Visions at Sandia Prep Theater

Many beer swilling, hot dog eating dudes and dudettes are under the impression that dance concerts are strictly for the champagne and caviar crowd. Edye Allen has been struggling for years to change that deeply ingrained attitude. It hasn't been easy.

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 Lemon Table: Stories

"I lie awake," quips a character in Julian Barnes' new story collection, The Lemon Table, "and think of the advantages of dying. Not that we are given a choice. Well, yes, there is self-slaughter, but that has always struck me as vulgar and self-important, like people who talk of the theatre."

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.
