Jane is older than she looks, and far more dangerous. She was a child on the Trail of Tears, taught to kill, and made a shapeshifter by her Cherokee grandmother.

Take an 1880 short novel by Henry James, filter it through a 1947 script by Ruth and Augustus Goetz (who also wrote the 1949 screenplay that starred Olivia de Haviland and Montgomery Clift), and fill the stage with a Victorian richness and intense performances, and you have the latest 2nd Space offering by the Good Company Players, The Heiress, which runs through June 17.

Anne Bishop’s series chronicling the humans and the Others of the world of Namid have been special to me since I first read Written in Red.

This has become my year of changing opinions. I always hated the song “Tomorrow” from Annie because I associated it with small children singing loudly off-key…until I saw the Good Company Players’ production, and now I love it. Now, I have to admit something I never expected to say…Mamma Mia! is a great show!

Drive into downtown Kingsburg on a rainy night and it’s dark…really dark. Hey, there’s a light over there, down the block from the library! What is it?
Fugazzi’s.

Since the 1950s, Simon has been the go-to guy for laughter on radio, TV, and in the movies. Barefoot in the Park, Sweet Charity, The Odd Couple, The Goodbye Girl, Brighton Beach Memoirs…..comedy is spelled Neil Simon.

It’s Rogue Time in Fresno! Go Rogue! See local performers! See acts from the far reaches of reality—and beyond!
The Rogue Festival is Fresno’s different kind of March Madness—ten locations, lots of shows, through March 10. You can see stand-up comedy, belly dancing, puppetry, magic (lots of magic, this year), plays, music, and things that defy description.

In 2000, while we were all paying attention to other things, a musical called Swing! ran for 461 performances on Broadway and picked up five Tony nominations. Reedley’s River Theatre Company has picked up this blast from the past and put it on stage through March 13 at the Reedley Opera House.

Men are supposed to like hard-boiled mysteries, where the two-fisted detective muscles his way through to catching the killer. Personally, I prefer cozy mysteries, where the amateur detective—usually female—reasons her way to the solution.

Kings River Life’s The Great Food Search sends me (and sometimes my family and/or friends) eating across the San Joaquin Valley. In 2017, the series featured a baker’s dozen (that’s 13) of eating establishments featuring from tamales to killer burgers, from quesadillas to Tandoori pizzas. It was quite a year, and now I am asked to choose my favorites? Oh, the horror!

And it came to pass that Faith Hunter did create Jane Yellowrock, a vampire hunter who works for vampires, and the series of books was good.
