Culture Shock

Lord of the Flies

The VSA North Fourth Art Center’s PLAY Conservatory Project is taking on William Golding's classic tale about true, brutal human nature, Lord of the Flies. The conservatory is an educational experience geared toward young actors, in which they will work closely with Director Jonathan Dunski and receive feed back not only on their acting ability, but in their skills in cooperation, following directions and treating others with respect. Auditions for the conservatory, ending in a run of Lord of the Flies from Oct. 12 through Oct. 28 at the N4th Theater, are being held for young actors and actresses ages 8 to 14 on Thursday, Aug. 30, from 7 to 8 p.m. Call 345-2872 ext. 18 to make an appointment or visit www.vsartsnm.org for more info.

Performance Review

Next to Godliness

There's no doubt, Doubt is good

No one can tell a sinner just by looking at his face. At least, not most people and not most faces. Sin has a way of making itself look attractive, appealing, sexy; and some sinners know how to wear that appeal as a mask, hiding their true nature.

Book Review

Somewhat Hilarious

The Insanity Defense and Mere Anarchy

Thanks to the films of Woody Allen, the words “neurotic” and “Manhattan” are wedded until death do they part. Where else can one drop one’s dog off at a day spa, visit a Jungian analyst, then wash it down over a lunch pricier than a used BMW?
