Way to create bias by singling out and excluding men. Way to be equal.
Cosplayers are often the target of jokes......but are these fans any different than the ones who proudly wear team garb and/or paint their faces in primary uniform colors to support their favorite pro or college club at a regular season or playoff game?
Oh those poor exploited prisoners. Where's the exhibition for the victims? Oh yeah, I forgot - they don't matter.
Had to get your leftist tilt in the review, didn't you? It's disgusting.
Thanks for this. I needed the reminder. "A sequined graduate of the Liberace School of Unctuousness". This is the worst review I have ever received and I think you captured the truth of the moment. I had been dreading going out to do that every single show. "queasy" was the absolute truth. I am laughing so hard I'm crying over hear. I stumbled upon this after all these years. You worded it much better than I ever could have. Cheers.
One doesn't have to be a supporter of Trump (I'm most definitely *not*) to feel that these editorial "jokes" were way out of line. If you want to discuss which of the two major political candidates was more belligerent or inclined to blow us up sooner, take it to a data mining shout-out like FB. It doesn't belong here.
The VanRooy Coffee Building has beautiful interior spaces...I was there on business when it was first rehabbed into office space over a decade ago, and again for an open house and architectural tour a few years later. It's gorgeous.
While I do understand the concept behind naming the neighborhood "Hingetown"...it still sounds dumber than dirt. It makes me cringe (Cringetown?) and I want to sing "Gotta get down...to...Hingetown..."
Puh-leeze! (eyeroll) It's still the northern fringe (Fringetown?) of Ohio City...always has been...always will be...

Keep your inane political comments to yourself. What makes you think theater-goers are interested in your political views?
Cleveland Bazaar also has a Holiday Retail Lab in Tremont that's open every day through the end of December. http://www.clevelandbazaar.org/holiday-sho…
Amen! Preach! I get tired of everything in these big projects always being designed by some company from New York, Chicago, or Europe. Cleveland doesn't need to be like New York or Seattle or Chicago—we need to be like ourselves and stop trying to be anything but that! Local talent isn't just about people who live here, it's about keeping our dollars in town, allowing artists to build their businesses and brands so we can at least sustain our city and the people who love it. If we do this, just maybe we can export Cleveland talent to other places instead of running this trade deficit.
"It's literally a city block," Zitiello said, of the 20,000-square-foot facility.
Exactly. The city block between W. 118th and W. 119th, on the south side of Lorain.
Not even close to being on West 117th. The address of the Variety is 11817 Lorain.
Your image shows that you at least did a drive-by, but did you even know where you were, Sam? Put down that pipe and pay attention to the road!

Congratulations to both of you.
Though I appreciate the credit for a great design for the Projections for American Idiot at the Beck Center, I can only take credit for the scenic and lighting design. The projections were designed by Adam Zeek and Douglas Puskas and they deserve full credit for their dynamic design. - Trad A Burns
Thanks for the article Josh..
.Gary and I have done art in Cleveland for over 45 years. Its always the artists that save the cities and neighborhoods, thats a fact everywhere. All the now "cool art places" started out as ghetto's or run down neighborhoods till the artists showed the possibilities of a good place to live. And they do it because creating awareness and beauty is what we do. Artists should get a little more respect and support.
But as we all know the all mighty dollar is what makes the rules... so artists will continue to be used up and spit out. But we keep on going because we have to...making art is in our blood.
" All too often those vibrant communities have more to do with $5 coffees and $7 craft beers than anything else."
And now it's become $7 coffees and $10 beers...especially during the street fairs and other neighborhood "events." And then the food trucks arrive. Can't forget those mobile bandits, with their slow service, $8 sliders and $14 plates, all hoping to part affluent Millennials from their moolah. Highway robbery. And another R-word comes to mind...ridiculous.
Take any gentrifying community you care to name. Rents are low at first. Space is plentiful.Stores are vacant and decaying. Soon the urban pioneers discover the delightful secret. Next, the artists start moving in. Soon there are cool spaces and galleries, and weekend "happenings" that draw the crowds from all over.
Crowds mean money, and can the trendy and expensive restaurants , the valet parking, and the foodies be lurking far behind? The hipster Millennials follow, the new apartments spring up, and Brooklynization of still another part of Cleveland is accomplished.
Yet another funky urban neighborhood loses the character that drew attention to it in the first place, and it is transformed into Crocker Park East or Legacy Village West.
Oh, for joy...

"Selfie" comes from the word "self"...as does "selfish"...and they are not dissimilar...

This is a a great sentiment... until you see the Band of the Week below it is a band from LA via Brooklyn where it should be a place for Cleveland talent.
I knew this would be a great opening show for Karamu House. I know these performers personally, and I am sitting in Tallahassee, Florida, wishing I was there and being there in spirit all along. BRAVO! What a superb review. CONGRATULATIONS!
