Keshet’s "Alice": an adventure of wonder and wondering

When Keshet retired its beloved traditional Holiday dance show “Nutcracker on the Rocks” in 2016, fans were disappointed and were afraid it would leave a void in their holiday enjoyment. With the premiere of their newest holiday show “Alice, an adventure of wonder and wondering” two years ago, the fans need not have worried. “Keshet’s Alice draws inspiration from the Alice in Wonderland story and characters, but our interpretation is only loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s work, and instead we experience Alice through a Keshet lens of self-discovery and new possibilities, embodying and embracing Keshet’s mission of unlimited possibilities,” says Keshet’s founder and Artistic Director, Shira Gr

November/December 2018 - Turn it Up: Wherefore Art Thou, Lady Romeo

I was very excited to interview the members of Lady Romeo after catching one of their sets at the StANNEd Up for Comedy event at the El Rey Theater this year. This five-person ensemble consists of a drummer, Lewis Cano, lead singer, Carrie Leonard de Aguirre, guitarist, Danger K Varoz, violinist, Ian Hudson, and bassist Jason Green. The band, started by Varoz and Leonard de Aguirre in 2016, looks at a particular description for itself. “Our band is what you would get if a kitten had sex with Prince in space,” says Leonard de Aguirre. Varoz shared how the band came together. “We began as an acoustic duo and we played a few parties and small shows,” says Varoz. “We eventually decided that we w

Michael Perlin has followed up his Albuquerque: A City of Towers book with the new Albuquerque Notables and Their Homes. It is a drawing of forty different homes followed by an extensive history of the home with some insight into the Albuquerque icon who inhabited the home.

Also featured are: the Jonson Gallery, Gutiérrez Hubbell Residence, Tingley Mansion, Lovelace Residence, and many more. Each is lovingly explained with its notable resident. There are all kinds of people and homes in the book. In the back of the book is a bibliogra
