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.

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

MARAT/SADE @ Long Beach Playhouse

The full title of Peter Weiss's most famous work, popularly known as Marat/Sade, goes pretty far in telling you what you're going to see for the next two-and-a-half hours when you walking into the upstairs to the Studio stage at the Long Beach Playhouse. In The Persecution and

TABLE MANNERS @ Little Fish Theatre

Although Annie is terribly fond of Tom, he seems to lack the courtship gene. As she confesses to sister-in-law Sarah during Table Manners's opening scene, her romantic frustrations with her would-be suitor led her to yield one night not so long ago to the dubious charms Norman, he
