Little Shop of Horrors On Stage at the Reedley Opera House

by Terrance McArthur

It was born in 1960 as a quicky Roger Corman film shot mostly in two days, but it grew. It sprouted off-off-Broadway as a musical in 1982, then propagated Off-Broadway later that year, eventually crawling to Broadway. A film of the musical blossomed in 1986. It has grown all over the world, and has been transplanted to the Reedley Opera House in a River City Theatre Company production through July 28—Little Shop of Horrors.

I just met a girl named Maria-a-a-a!”), gender roles switched, and translated into Klingon.

Great Food Search: Pie a la Whatever

by Terrance McArthur

In March, we (Well, some of us...) celebrated March 14 as Pi Day (3/14 is the date; the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter is about 3.14). It was celebrated with pies...pizza, apple, Key lime, and more. Since I really like pi and pie, I have decided to unilaterally declare April Pi/Pie Month. Let’s dig in and see what I dug up.
