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

Philip Glass’s THE PERFECT AMERICAN @ Long Beach Opera

Philip Glass just won't go away. That's a good thing. In this 21st century of ours opera needs a guy who can marry classical orchestral paradigms with the computer age, all strange loops and binary repetitions and cold confusing realities, some new to modernity, some as old as wishing upon

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
