A Walk with Christopher Daniels

Christopher Daniels shows us that drama is a good thing.

Taking the role of Managing Director of Good Luck Macbeth Theater Company, Christopher has been instrumental in taking GLM to high standards of excellence, and now taking GLM to a new building and a bigger Theater.

GLM has a deep history of bringing cutting-edge theater to Reno. I recommend checking out GLM’s new season in their new building.

A Moment with Erik Holland

What do you do when you see something wrong about to happen?
If you are Erik Holland, you paint about it.

Last week I had a moment with Erik Holland and we talked about the Winnemucca Ranch and how that beautiful place has influenced his life.

Erik is one of my favorite local artists, not only for his wonderful paintings but also for who he is and the brilliant conversations we have whenever we run into each other.

Erin Shearin at Sierra Arts

Last week Erin Shearin had an art show to celebrate her completion of her MFA degree.

Taking life as an inspiration for art the theme was centered about her day to day challenges with being a caretaker and the stresses that go along with those challenges.

Being a caretaker myself, I understood where she was coming from and I did find her work very moving.

Check out this video where Erin talks a bit about her show and the inspiration behind the work.

“The Eight: Reindeer Monologues” at Good Luck Macbeth

Wickedly topical and thought-provoking

The Eight: Reindeer Monologues were written by Jeff Goode and first performed in 1994. The story is eerily timely in the feel and the content of the headlines today.

“The Eight: Reindeer Monologues“ take us into the controversy when Santa’s reindeer start talking about what it has been like to work for Santa. Trust me; these stories are not for the weak of heart.

The cast is absolutely brilliant portraying the passion and devastation that comes from such an event. I cannot think of better casting choices for this powerful play.

Each of the monologues held me spellbound. This play is not for children! Not at all for children, and if you still believe in Santa you may want to think twice about seeing “The Eight: Reindeer Monologues”. But if you are looking for a thought-provoking and sometimes funny look at a story that could be taken out of today’s headlines you should go see this play. When I say “sometimes funny” I mean the kind of laugh that breaks that very uncomfortable moment.

“Heisenberg” at Restless Artists Theatre Company

Love comes in unexpected ways and at unexpected times.

This is the story of a Georgie and Alex, who meet by chance in a London train station. Georgie is a 42-year-old woman, and Alex is a 75-year-old butcher. They spark up a passionate friendship that leads them to unexpected places.

The highlight of this production is the chemistry between the two actors. Georgie is played by Debra Lynn Hull and Alex is played by Bob Ives. These two very talented actors play off each other brilliantly.

This is a great play to see on date night with someone you love.

Check out the photos for a taste of what you will see.
