Christine Chin’s not-so-delicious-looking finger carrot sushi rolls

Culture Shock

By

Laff It Up—Russ Meyer, owner of Laffs Comedy Club (6001 San Mateo NE, Suite C-1), will headline his own club on Wednesday, May 3. I'm told he's a very funny man. Show starts at 8:30 p.m. As an added bonus, Wednesdays are College and Military ID Night. Flash one ID and your whole party gets in for free. Even if you aren't a college student or a soldier, admission is only $6. If you could put a price on laughter, which you can't, six bucks would still be a steal. For details, got to www.laffscomedy.com or call 296-JOKE (5653).

Gallery Review

In Through the Out Door

The Annual Graduate Art Exhibit at the Jonson Gallery

By

Here's a tip for you: It's generally more convenient to enter the Jonson Gallery through the back door than the front. See, the parking lot is in the back, and although the back doorway looks like some sort of decrepit servants' entrance, if you ring the bell, someone will invariably let you in.

Morena Amoora   will be performed this Sunday at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

Art Magnified

Morena Amoora

National Hispanic Cultural Center

By

First staged at the Women’s Festival in Hulon, Israel, Morena Amoora has since been performed at major dance festivals all over the world. An innovative mix of Middle Eastern and flamenco dance, this beautiful performance is designed to create a cross-cultural bridge of understanding and friendship between the Spanish, Jewish and Arab communities. With this goal in mind, a portion of proceeds will help support the mission of the New Mexico Holocaust and Intolerance Museum. (The Alibi's next-door neighbor!) Morena Amoora is only showing for a single evening on Sunday, April 30, at 7 p.m. Tickets are a bargain at $15, $20 and $25. Don't miss this show. 724-4471, www.ticketmaster.com.

Book Review

Dead Zone

Review by

The Book Thief

This remarkable novel begins with a small fact: "You are going to die." The narrator should know. He is Death himself.

Saving the Best for Later

Review by

Saving the World

How many times have you recommended a book with the caveat that it starts slow? My initial reaction to such a book is impatience (I often don’t bother to finish them) and then, secondarily (when I need to push on), a wish that its editor had been more resolute about insisting where the book really ought to begin.

Do Tell Motel

Fool for Love

By Clarke Conde
If you don’t already have plans to watch two ex-lovers and an alcoholic father argue in a desert motel room this weekend, then come on down to The Adobe Theater for Sam Shepard's Fool for Love. Directed by Jeff Andersen, this Shepard classic explores personal identity, both in and out of love. Shepard himself said about the play, “Falling in love is such a dumbfounding experience. In one way you wouldn’t trade it for the world. In another way it’s absolute hell.” Curtain is at 7:30pm on March 28, 29 and 30, with a 2pm matinee on Sunday, March 31. Tickets are $15.

Become a TV Writer Workshop Series

By Clarke Conde
Do you long to be the next Stephen J. Cannell? Do you have another “The Rockford Files” burning deep inside you? You can’t just take the paper out of your typewriter, throw it in the air and hope for success. Scotty Milder teaches you what you need to know to Become a TV Writer, finding the fame, fortune and plot-twisting cliffhangers of the small screen. Milder says, “I’ll be talking about the process of developing hour-long drama pilots and series bibles/pitches, the structure/hierarchy of a writer’s room, script format and the way TV distribution is changing.” Classes run Sundays starting March 31 through May 12 from 6pm to 9pm and cost $350 (that you'll surely recoup in the first royalty check). Sol Acting Academy hosts the series and visit www.solacting.com for more info.
