Greggory Moore

0 Articles

Trapped within in the ironic predicament of wanting to know everything (more or less) while believing it may not be possible really to know anything at all, Greggory Moore is nonetheless dedicated to a life of study, be it of books, people, nature, or that slippery phenomenon we call the self. And from time to time he feels impelled to write a litt

RIP, Josh Fischel; or A Big Man Leaves a Big Hole Behind

I met Josh Fischel in early 2013. He died yesterday, September 29, 2016. No, that can't be right. That would mean everything I experienced of and with this man took place in less than four years. That can't be right. The first three things I learned about Josh were probably the first th

EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL @ the Garage Theatre

A few years ago, the Garage Theatre put on Cannibal!: The Musical, a work loosely based on a disastrous 1874 prospecting expedition that resulted in Alferd Packer killing and eating the flesh of his fellow trekkers to survive. There may not be an unlikelier subject for a full-blow

DOUBT: A PARABLE @ International City Theatre

"Doubt," Father Flynn tells us in the sermon that opens John Patrick Shanley's Doubt: A Parable, "can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty." Those words echo throughout the play, as we find ourselves confronted with the question of whether Flynn is molesting one of hi

RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN @ Little Fish Theatre

Isms are sticky wickets. However useful your favorite ism may be as a belief system and a way of seeing, individual and societal realities are far too messy ever to be fully accounted for by it. Feminism is no different. Not that feminism is monadic. That's the philosophical jumping-of

REASONS TO BE PRETTY @ Long Beach Playhouse

I don't know anything Neil LaBute has done since 2000's Nurse Betty, but reasons to be pretty is exactly what you would expect if the only data you had was that the author of In the Company of Men and Your Friends & Neighbors had tried his hand at ro

BEH: AN IMPROVISED PLAY @ the Garage Theatre

Last year when the Garage Theatre transformed Tom Stoppard's radio play Darkside into an onstage production, considering my bookcase full of Stoppard and Dark Side of the Moon's being the so

THE CLEAN HOUSE @ Little Fish Theatre

There are no rules in theatre. Sure, you can say there must be characters (although Samuel Beckett's Breath, what?) or that there's got to be some sort of stage/frame where the play takes place, but you'd be missing the point. In spirit, there may be conventions, but there are no

CYMBELINE @ Shakespeare by the Sea

Back when I was heavily into Shakespeare, I considered Othello one of the Bard's best. It's a classic tale of deceit and jealousy that may be (along with Hamlet) the most compelling examination of the human psyche until Dostoyevsky's Notes from Underground a qua

THE NEWS @ Long Beach Opera

One-trick ponies are a curious species. If they have a good trick and perform it well, their lives may not—may not—be in vain. Otherwise, best to take them out back and put them down. There's no getting around the fact that The News is a one-trick pony. Composer Ja
