Re: “Andrew Reach's Diagnosis Led to the End of One Career and the Beginning of Another

I love this artist and his work! Been a huge fan for years and lucky enough to be his friend. The beauty of Andrews work is that his shapes and colors takes your eye to a new place every time you look at it! Plus his work just makes me happy.

You can also bring items or cash donations directly to the gallery if you can't get to one of the sites beforehand.

Re: “For the People, By the People: Cleveland State University's People's Art Show Gives Everyone Something to Love (And Hate)

"...some rules have been put in place for works that are illegal or dangerous to visitors. Still, the gallery staff does its best to include everyone and everything that walks through the doors."

So does that mean no crucifixes in vials of human urine? Damn. I'm pissed. Christ, whatta disappointment. But what the hell, I might just go anyway. I'm sure I'll find something else to like.

Re: “Art Patronage: The Most Convincing of All Compliments

I've had the pleasure of viewing this collection in person. Pictures don't do it justice. It's amazing.

Re: “A Final Bow for Reuben Silver

We all have paths, in life I thank GOD that Reuben and Dorothy Silver cross my path. my roots as a black actress start at Karamu the very first person I talk to about a career in Theatre was Reuben Silver. The very first African-American play I saw was "Tambourines to Glory" directed by Dorothy Silver. I am positive that many people understand why their tears in my eyes today! memories o memories.

Re: “A Final Bow for Reuben Silver

Let's not forget that he was the host of "American Scrapbook" the PBS classroom series produced in the 70's by WVIZ-TV. That's how I learned of this great man.

Re: “A Final Bow for Reuben Silver

Condolences, but also MANY thanks to the family for educating MANY folks about the power of theatre.
May he Rest In Rhythm.

Re: “All Flash, No Heat: Flashdance, The Musical Fizzles by Trying Too Hard to Sizzle at Playhouse Square

Thanks Christine! The original ‘Alex Owens’ here, writing to you from Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada...

.... Smiling very wide right now, compliments of your review finally read. (Apologies for the lateness of my comment.) You pretty well nailed it I think, re: "emotional clarity or honesty" missing in this show. Do you think it could have anything to do with the fact that Flashdance the movie was not the lame retelling of my story, like this stageshow apparently is, by a few men pretending to be inside a young woman’s head where her livelihood and dreams were concerned?
I say this because, in fact, the film was actually realized by a number of women 'behind the scenes' in Hollywood - Katherine Reback in particular. She was the writer who, in reality, wrote all the final production scripts that were used on the movie's film sets, and received NO CREDITS for her work, as did so many other women (me for example) who also contributed to the film's soul, story, moves (Marine Jahan), or success.

Nice to see a review by a fan of Flashdance who is not part of the "Flashdance the Musical" promotion machinery, and considering this is a dance show, your observation of its 'lameness' is particularly noteworthy.

Re: “Race to the Bottom: Racial Tensions in a Continually Changing Neighborhood Feed the Fires, and Laughs, in Clybourne Park

Spoiler alert: It's not about Cleveland. For what it's worth, Clybourne Park is supposed to be a racially-changing and gentrifying neighborhood just to the south and west of downtown Chicago.

Also wish they'd done their homework on the TV spot: It's "PULL it, sir" Prize...and NOT the ignorant-sounding "PEW-lit-zer"...

Unless you're a chicken farmer who wins it...then it's the Pullet Surprise.

Re: “Race to the Bottom: Racial Tensions in a Continually Changing Neighborhood Feed the Fires, and Laughs, in Clybourne Park

Those looking for a solid read on the historical reality of the city, - "A Ghetto Takes Shape: Black Cleveland, 1870-1930" by Kenneth L. Kusmer - is indispensable.

Re: “Hello, Dali, It's Walt Calling: An Unlikely Disney Studios/Salvador Dali Project is Imaginatively Recreated in Lobster Alice

I went and seen this with my boyfriend the second day of the run. It was amazing. The cast does an amazing job portraying the surrealism that was Salvadore Dali. Bravo Grey Cross... Wonderful Job!
