Re: “Tremont's Artistic Event Overhaul Signals New Era for Neighborhood

A little narrow there, don't you think, Chuck?

Of course many of these things we could group under your "Brooklynization" term. But, assuming you are speaking of the NY Brooklyn it belies a lack of deeper understanding. The NY of today has in many ways ground to a halt in it's ability to evolve and flux. But the NY that you would be really pointing to is one to which this is not so much a bad thing and is certainly far more complicated. And one that can be an asset to a city if harnessed.

Your gentrification in NY was one of constant cycles: artists through to the monied classes, next neighborhood, next neighborhood, etc, and eventually back around to the original. Hence creating constant revitalizing and dynamism.

The problem we often have is that that pattern isn't able or allowed to cycle. And so, the real issue to address, and why "Brooklynization" is not an accurate term.

Re: “Tremont's Artistic Event Overhaul Signals New Era for Neighborhood

This story is an old one now, and it's now the way of the world.

A declining neighborhood, with its low-to-modest rents, attracts the original "urban pioneers"-- the artists, musicians, writers and all kinds of hangers-on and weirdos. The art community attracts the first gentrification wave, the foodie restaurants and trendy bars follow, rents skyrocket, and the hipsters and yupsters--invariably young, white, rich, and child-free, are not far behind. And then the stories you read have those inevitable buzzwords like "reimagining" and "rebranding". Oy...

The same story has happened in countless neighborhoods in countless cities...big and small. I call it, for lack of a better term, Brooklynization. It happened to Ohio City and Lakewood. Gordon Square and Waterloo will follow...enjoy them for what they are, while you can.

The artists and their galleries are always the first to arrive and the first to be priced out. And forced out. And forced to move on. Where the artists go, the money follows, and they face the upheavals of gentrification.

And yes, the name change does signal the current direction of the neighborhood — for better or worse. I won't say which. You, the reader, must decide that for yourself.

Re: “Tremont's Artistic Event Overhaul Signals New Era for Neighborhood

Thank you for a more accurate article, Josh. The peedee article was disturbing in the way old Tremont was portrayed. A little respect and recognition from the "new kids" would be nice.

Re: “Tremont's Artistic Event Overhaul Signals New Era for Neighborhood

Josh - thanks for the article helping to publicize the new Walkabout Tremont. As you mention, Tremont has become much more than art, which is why the monthly ArtWalk is being transformed. As for more details about art on display and artists, those are on Facebook now. The map and these details will be on the website soon. Walkabout Tremont is being organized by a grassroots group of volunteers who have been putting in a ton of work. We expect the monthly event will be a big hit, but there will be a few bumps in the road as we work on all the details in getting everything ready for Friday.

Re: “Local Artists Work to Reroute Cleveland Narrative Ahead of RNC

Sometimes, like during RNC, artists need to just accept their own irrelevance. No one needs to convince anyone that Cleveland still has some bad neighborhoods.

Re: “'If/Then' at Playhouse Square Wants to Have it Both Ways and Gets Neither

I wanted most this season to see IF/THEN. So glad that I did. Waiting in the balcony for some of the crowd to leave, the diverse occupants of seats in the row I was in began talking....gender and ages notwithstanding, we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Was it emotional? Nobody in reviews has found much emotion, yet all of us admitted to damp cheeks during Act II. This was a show worth experiencing! Enjoyed it more than Bullets Over Broadway and Gentleman's Guide to Murder.
PS---would I have liked seeing/hearing Idina Menzel? Of course! But Jackie Burns IS actually worth the price of admission.....really she is....

Re: “'If/Then' at Playhouse Square Wants to Have it Both Ways and Gets Neither

You always know when a show isn't worth con$ideration. The frequency of commercials for the event on local television rival that of a national political campaign, and free tickets are flying out of local media outlets like the Buzzards in Hinckley.

She doesn't sleep with her boss in either storyline, although she tries to.

Re: “The Giggles Come Fast and Furious, but the Rest is a Bit Shallow, in "The Realistic Joneses"

I was mystified by the scenic design. I thought there was smoke behind the house and I had to idea what the ziz zags on the stage were. I also found the "store" set up very confusing, scenically. That said, I tremendously enjoyed the story, characters and dialog, but also felt emotionally a bit cut off. The acting seems top notch and I very much felt they all had the potential to take the story to a higher plane.
