Wicked On Stage at the Saroyan


FROM THE 2019 Articles,

by Jessica Ham

To this day, Wicked is one of my all-time favorite musicals. I saw it for the first time when I was thirteen, and I have been hooked ever since. The grand music and powerful, emotional storylines and characters grab you instantly. I started bawling the second the first song started, that is how much I love this musical.

Feral Paws Rescue: Samson

andFeral Paws Rescue

by Lupe Gore

This month I am going back in time seven years when my relationship with Feral Paws Rescue began, in February 2012. The first cat I got from the Rescue was a beautiful calico named Caleigh, and it went on from there. Each time Feral Paws Rescue would post on Facebook a black cat in need of saving from a kill-shelter, I inquired to see if they could pull him or her. In May 2012, one such post really got my attention.

I’ve been a fan of British television and movies since the early sixties. Mysteries, secret agents, romance, humor, and of course, all the Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing horrors had me glued to the television every Saturday. But, getting productions in the U.S. was relegated to a hit-and-miss and incomplete airing on PBS stations, and don’t get me started on BBC America! So, it was a gift from tech heaven finding BritBox. For a reasonable monthly or annual fee, I have access to a wide range of comedies, drama, mysteries, documentaries—all with excellent video/audio quality using any of my devices.

The Rogue Festival: the crown performing-arts jewel of Fresno’s Tower District, 9 days (or 10, if you count the Rogue Teaser, which I do) filled with music, dance, theatre, magic, comedy, and other things. I managed to see twenty-five shows this year, dashing from venue to venue to see as much as I could…but a chubby little reviewer’s gotta eat, right? Where can you grab some food when you’re on your way to somewhere else? Is there any place for a quick bite to eat? Let me put it this way—I did not lose weight during Rogue 2019.

by Evelyne Vivies

Dr. Kwong has two doctorates: one in western medicine and the other in Chinese medicine. Patients of her clinic, The Center for Integrated Medicine, get the best of both worlds, Eastern and Western medicine. She started the clinic in 1994, but Dr. Kwong’s expertise goes back three generations to Hong Kong where her great-uncle practiced Chinese medicine and healing herbs.
