Re: “Jarheads Are Hunting for Ugly Women in Dogfight at the Beck Center

I just want to say that this is one of my favorite musicals and seeing it performed with amazingly talented actors was wonderful. Dogfight is an extremely difficult show to perform. The book is not a masterpiece, but the music is. The harmonies are too die for and this group performed them wonderfully. While there were some issues with the show, mainly directing, Colton Ryan blew me away. His song 'Come Back' at the end was the best I've seen it performed. He was absolutely the stand out in the cast and I'll be the first in line for tickets when he gets to Broadway.

Re: “Welcome to Wizard World

Wow. No discussion whatsoever of the sleezy stunt Wizard World pulled to put the convention organized by a different group last year out of business? Do your homework, guys; this organization is slimier than a charter school CEO.

Re: “Jam-Packed Arts Scene in the City

Another important correction to this article from MOCA: The MOCA opening is 7 - 10pm, not 11:30. The 10:15pm screening of The Visitors is at capacity, but the work will be shown throughout the opening.

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.

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: “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.
