Performance Review

I Want My MTV

Belladonna at Theatre X

The Tricklock Company deserves its stellar reputation. In show after show, they’ve gone way beyond the call of duty.

Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love

The Journals of Joyce Carol Oates, 1973-1982

She has been a famous American starlet, a murderer and a senator. She has also been a lawyer, a religious zealot and a 16-year-old girl. In fact, with more than 1,000 stories and 100 books to her name, Joyce Carol Oates must have created at least 10,000 characters by now—enough to fill a small town. Enter any bookstore and you can spy this place in the distance, twinkling darkly, her other America.
