Trenchcoat Science at The Jungle

Published October 3, 2002

The Jungle's adaptation of Tom Stoppard's Hapgood succeeds rather peculiarly by reveling in silence. The players here recognize the value and beauty inherent within the absence of sound. As Einstuerzende...

A Fiercer Hell

by Niels Strandskov
Published October 3, 2002

Despite the number of film appearances that Satan has racked up, there are comparatively few cinematic portrayals of hell. Not only that, but movie hell is too mannered - too cartoonish and clichéd...

All’s Welles that Ends Welles

by Tom Horgen
Published September 26, 2002

A Band without a Decent Tragedy

by Kari Petrie
Published September 26, 2002

The Rakes are a band that likes to play rock music, drink beer and play loud. And that's about as interesting as they get. Not to say that the Rakes are a bad band, because they aren't. It is just they...

The Spirit Is Willing

by Max Sparber
Published September 26, 2002

Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki, lately of the film Spirited Away (currently showing at the Uptown Theater) is a greatly ambiguous filmmaker, and I adore him for it. American films sometimes seem to exist...

Of Demons and Strange Encounters

by Amy Danielson
Published September 26, 2002

Of Hope and Courage, the new play by Theatre Mu, is only vaguely about hope and courage. More precisely, I would say it is about terror and soul-searching. Two unique folk tales compose this two-act show:...
