The Holy Trinity: Turkey, Stuffing, Hand Art

Thanksgiving. It's the all-American holiday. A day of repose, a time to gather and reflect and celebrate violence by watching football.

Cute Culture

Gallery owner brings San Francisco chic to Burque

In addition to a delightfully unusual name, Leslie Acosta-Isengard has a magnificently light voice. It’s dainty and guileless, the perfect complement to her hands, which are so slender that when shaking one of them, you almost wonder if it’s going to dissolve in your palm. Add to these traits a head of jet-black hair and a sylph-like physique, and you’re basically dealing with a woodland sprite. But although she may seem delicate, she’s a woman who isn’t afraid of chasing down what she wants.

Performance Review

A Tale of Betrayal

Tricklock weaves a tangled web

In Traitors, things are not as they seem.

The original script by Tricklock Company member Kristen D. Simpson weaves together the stories of Benedict Arnold, Judas Iscariot and Sen. Joseph McCarthy. On the surface, the play is a reflection on the nature of betrayal, patriotism and forgiveness. But there’s another surprising current that sweeps through the show. Religion is the undertone of the production, and its presence left me more than a little confused.
