1. Our Body: The Universe Within

from said:
“Our Body!”

Our Body: The Universe Within is a wonderful opportunity to view a stunning and well-presented exhibit of the human body. You WILL see and understand the body like you never have before… regardless of your background. ALL of the body “items” shown have undergone a process which preserves and make them plastic-like. There are many full bodies shown in various ways so that you may study the many different and interrelated systems that make up the human body. There are also many exhibits of body parts: hands, feet, lungs, liver, muscles, etc…. available for detailed study. In terms of logistics: The exhibit is well lit, there is quiet music playing in the background, some museum patrons are silently studying the bodies, some patrons are quietly chatting with their friends about what they are viewing, there are some benches to sit down on should you need to rest…More at nowplayingaustin.wordpress.com

When I got home, still bubbling from Zach’s The Drowsy Chaperone, I was ready to write, “Run, don’t walk, to the Zach box office to get your first set of tickets for this sparkling evening of music, comedy and light-hearted fooling, a clever reincarnation of Broadway at its wonderful beginnings.” That’s hyperbole, of course. Because you don’t need to run anywhere. You just tap zachtheatre.org into your browser, click a couple of times and give them your payment details. The Drowsy Chaperone is a zinger because Lambert, Morrison, Martin and McKellar lovingly spoof those energetic, naive and amazing beginnings of what became American musical theatre, admired across the world, while giving us a contemporary moderator and chorus — in the Greek sense. Martin Burke as the anonymous Man in the Chair hosts us for an evening alone in his apartment with LP recordings of that mythical 1928 musical.

B- Scene Scores Big!

A full length review of B- Scene at the Blanton! our A- team had a blast, you should probably make the next one if you can.

A review of the B Scene, Friday, September 4, 2009.

I love a poetry slam.  Why?  I guess because I am a voice teacher and find it thrilling when people are just naturally attracted to language and how sounds work together to create an effect.  Artists verbalizing live expression of inner feeling, discovery and human experience was all the buzz on Friday night at the B-scene.
