Culture Shock

Aeeeiiiaahhhh! I just learned that Bound To Be Read, one of our city's finest independent book stores, will be shutting down operations sometime this summer. Painful. Bernie Weiss, a spokesman for the store, says that the economics of keeping Bound To Be Read afloat were “challenging.” For that reason, the owners have decided to transition out of retail. We're going to miss them.

Performance Review

She's a Maniac

Hedda Gabler at the Cell Theatre

Hedda Gabler isn't exactly marriage material. She's the kind of woman who's easy to fall in love with as a theatrical character, but if she were a real person, you'd be wise to flee at the first sight of her. She's vindictive. She's moody. She's an obnoxious, aristocratic snob. She spends money like there's no tomorrow. Worst of all, she loves to play with guns.

In the Wind

Tricklock Performance Space

Set in the all-too-near future, Eric Whitmore's play In the Wind imagines a bleak world in which slavery is the norm and danger lurks everywhere. A family waits in a miserable apartment for the return of their son. While they wait, they plot how they will gain their freedom from mysterious forces. This supernatural thriller has been described as a creepy nail-biter. Spook yourself. Spook your friends. A professional production of the play directed by Summer Olsson opens this weekend at the Tricklock Performance Space. Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 6 p.m. $12 general, $9 students/seniors. The opening night gala on Friday, May 6, at 8 p.m. is $18. Runs through June 5. 254-8393.

"Dance" by Denise Kunz

Art Magnified

Denise Kunz

Downtown Contemporary Art Center

Denise Kunz has been making art for almost 40 years. In a new solo exhibit opening this week at the Downtown Contemporary Art Center, she presents a series of vibrantly colorful paintings that capture people in true moments. In particular, in her portraits of flamenco dancers in action she seems to work overtime to avoid idealizing her subjects. The result is exciting, honest work that's never pretty nor easy. Hot Passions and Other Flashes opens Friday, May 6, with a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. Runs through May 28. 242-1983.
