Some clever stage effects, a strong cast and assiduous editing by the play’s director, Cynthia Meier,  keep  Shakespeare’s sprawling historical drama, “Richard III,” moving right along.  Joseph McGrath has the title role building momentum as this mad character stewing in his own evil intentions.

Close at hand is David Morden as Richard’s bloody accomplice, the Duke of Buckingham. These two are so convincing as actors, the famous scene where Richard finally goes too far in his bloody ambitions and the Duke pulls away from him becomes the evening’s most powerful moment.

Matt Bowdren stands tall as the Earl of Richmond who leads the forces of good, amassing his army off stage while we watch as Richard begins to lose his grip on the crown.

We know the worst is nearly over and the end is near when Richmond appears to confront Richard in battle -- the one where Richard nearly defeated famously shouts “A horse, a horse. My kingdom for a horse.”

Giving the women a strong presence are Susan Arnold as the Duchess of York, Cynthia Jeffery as  Queen Elizabeth (Queen to Kind Edward IV), Kathryn Kellner Brown as Queen Margaret and Marissa Garcia as the long-suffering Lady Anne, forced by politics to later marry Richard although he was responsible for the death of her husband.

Shakespeare plays are always famous for their body counts, leaving the final scene strewn with bodies and remorse. But Richard is more of a serial murderer, going down the line eliminating those who next present the most dangerous threat. As Richard’s personal body count rises, vengeance begins to foment.

Appearing on a balcony above and behind the stage proper, the three members of Odaiko Sonora play several large drums and other percussion instruments.  In this setting the drummers give a hearty battlefield atmosphere to the royal conflicts taking place below them.

What’s remarkable is how much those drums add to the foreboding atmosphere that clouds and clogs the minds of this royal court. Whether it is a racing heartbeat, a clash of arms or the sudden silence of no heartbeat, it is impossible not to respond.

“Richard III” continues through May 12 at the Rogue Theatre, 300 E. University Blvd., with performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. Plus a 2 p.m. matinee on May 11. Pre-show music 15 minutes before every performance.

Tickets are $30. For details and reservations, 520-551-2053, www.theroguetheatre.org

The ever more abstract filmmaker Terrence Malick won’t be acquiring many new fans with his newest release, “To the Wonder.” But he shouldn’t be losing many, either, in its current run at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

In fact if you love how Malick’s films have continued to grow more emotionally spare since “The Thin Red Line” (1998), followed by “The Tree of Life” in 2011, you will be quite happy here.

Languid outdoor visuals fill the screen for 112 minutes. The actors, especially Olga Kurylenko as Marina, are often seen spinning with their arms outstretched. This reluctance to choose a specific direction often takes place in the vast landscapes of rural Oklahoma.

There is very little dialogue, especially for Ben Affleck as Neil, the indecisive lover and then husband of Marina. Appearing in the middle of the story, and given very little to do is Rachel McAdams as Jane, a high school girlfriend of Neil.

Appearing occasionally for brief spurts like an omen of foreboding – a metaphor of Christianity itself -- is Javier Bardem as Father Quintana, an even more troubled man of the cloth.

There is so little conversation that you could describe “To the Wonder” as a silent film which is briefly dialogue enhanced from time to time.

There is lots of beauty, in a scenic sense, as the contrasting backdrop for sad lives wandering like streams searching for a way to the sea. This pairing recalls “The Thin Red Line” with its brutal attacks surrounded by tropical splendor during World War II in the Pacific Theater.

Plot-wise, some of it takes place in the culture rich environment of Paris. The rest of it takes place in utilitarian Oklahoma, rural as well small town in its architecture. Neil is the Oklahoma oil engineer in Paris, befriending Marina, who is actually a Ukranian expatriate with a 10-year-old daughter.

Neil and Mariana fall rapturously in love in Paris, move to Oklahoma where Neil works for one of the oil companies. He becomes hesitant to marry Marina. She moves back to Paris.

He takes up with Jane from his Oklahoma boyhood, but soon misses Mariana. She misses him. They are back in Oklahoma, and do get married, but life doesn’t go smoothly.

So this entire journey of the heart is told in scenes shuffled like cards so there is no particular difference between flashbacks and current events.

Yet, “To The Wonder” does feel satisfying. While there is nothing conventional about the film, there is within it a kind of poignant wisdom that would be difficult to reach any other way.

About the Director/Producer:

I am Oscar Jimenez and I live and work in Tucson, Arizona. My work is heavily influenced by borderland dynamics. I live to tell stories about culture clashes, broken expectations and emotional deserts. Since I was raised with Mexican telenovelas, my work is tinted with melodramatic touches. Catholic imagery and ceremony tend to show up in my creative projects. When I was growing up (literally on the Mexican/USA border) I wanted to be a fashion designer and a movie director. I studied Advertising Art at the Southwest University of Visual Arts in Tucson but I did not pursue a career in the commercial art field,instead working as a social worker. My social work career has given me infinite opportunities to study human behavior, providinga fertile foundation for my goals as a storyteller. I have been making short films for the last decade;much of my work is abstract and experimental in nature. I have also worked as a garment artist, making costumes for local performers and theatrical productions. When I wrote and directed the short feature Esmeralda del Desierto (2009), I was able to combine my love for garment design and filmmaking when I told the story of a Mexican transgender woman who travels to the United States to pursue a career in the fashion industry. In 2011 I made Winkey Smiley Face, a narrative short that explored themes of long term monogamous relationships and frustrated sexuality. With Arizona Nevada I continue to explore themes of humanity, disconnectedness and redemption.

I am driven to create stories about people who feel incomplete and are in search of themselves as fully realized beings. The three main characters in the full-length film Arizona Nevada have each lost their sense of humanness and are desperately attempting to reclaim it in order to feel at peace. Arizona Nevada is a horror story where the demons are extensions of ourselves, the haunted houses are our own environments and the possessions are social constructions. The characters have fallen prey to their own life chances / choices. Laura, Jacob and Edward are theatrical manifestations of specific periods from my own journey to happiness. Laura represents privilege, and the way too much privilege can stagnate human development. Jacob represents overindulgence and the manner in which too much freedom can trivialize certain aspects of humanity. Edward represents self-hatred, or the way in which social norms can make you hate who you are. A fourth character is Las Vegas, a city where visitors go to reclaim youth, wealth, lust and passion.

Shane Carruth (“Primer”) is an extremely independent filmmaker with an intense following of equally independent film followers – those people with no time for the simplistic mongering of basic emotions by the cynical major film studios turning out all those big box office attractions.

You know who you are.

“Upstream Color,” now playing at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd., is Carruth’s second film, equally abstract and open to a wide range of interpretations.

As writer/director/composer/co-star and co-editor, Carruth doesn’t need to explain his motives to anyone. Joining him are two actors playing characters with titles for names, the Thief (Thiago Martins) and The Sampler (Andrew Sensenig).

Joining Jeff (Carruth) as co- star is Kris (Amy Seimetz), although Kris gets the lion’s share of lines. She becomes kind of the ping-pong ball being knocked back and forth among these men as the game dictates.

With a rich philosophical pallet of symbols, totems and metaphors, “Upstream Colors” encourages imaginative interpretations. My personal take (which is still being formulated as we speak) is to compare these messages to those in “The Matrix” -- but without the movie stars and big budget special effects.

Mind control is the heart of the matter. Carruth the writer thinks of society as one big laboratory experiment, with coldly calculating scientists infecting a few humans with tiny “thought receivers” in the form of little white worms.

Once these little worms have absorbed the personalities of their hosts, the worms are removed and put into various pigs being raised as another part of the experiment. The scientists are then free to observe the pigs as if they were human society, which they are in the mental sense because they now express the same emotional responses.

But then, as the scientists train the pigs to express more desirable reactions, the worms in the pigs begin controlling the habits of the people who were once the worms’ human hosts.

So we watch as Kris, the most troubled human, keeps trying to find out what is wrong with her, while Jeff, the Thief and the Sampler have their own agendas to pursue.

None of this is expressed directly. Everything is implied. Carruth as director maintains a gentle pace so there is time to ruminate and reason a bit as developments go by. However the editing, done with co-editor David Lowery, loves to go jumping about.

This is probably intended to be disorienting, which it certainly is. But the confusion will add pleasurable opportunity to those cineastes that enjoy sorting out all the conflicting elements of any film.

The acting and cinematography in “Upstream Color” are quite good. This picture is several cuts above those low-budget indie sketches done with oodles of heart but only minimalist techniques.

So get into the proper frame of mind before buying your ticket, settle back in that Loft seat with some extra coffee, chocolate, wine, etc, and let the thinking begin.

Red Barn Theatre world premiere of "Taking On Macbeth"


From: s s [mailto:srs1113@live.com]
Sent: Thursday, April 25, 2013 10:17 PM
Subject: Press Release



Tucson, AZ.  April 25, 2013 - The Red Barn Theatre Company made a dream come true for local playwright Vince Flynn when they invited him to direct his own play, Taking on Macbeth, as part of their 2013 season.  This entertaining comedy-drama will open May 10th and run through May 26th.


Taking on Macbeth was developed in sessions with the Old Pueblo Playwrights, and debuted last year as a staged reading at their new play festival. These plays are performed by actors reading from scripts, offering the writer an opportunity to see and hear audience reaction and receive helpful feedback. “Having a full-out production, however, is any playwright’s dream,”  Flynn says, “and being able to cast my own characters and move them off the page and onto the stage is about as good as it gets.”


The play centers on a father and son. Martin, the father, played by Ken Beider, is a local celebrity and a veteran actor who owns a popular bar in a large Midwestern town. His son AJ, played by Matt Brown, is an ex-Marine recently returned from combat. The local theatre group is staging Macbeth this year, and everyone knows that Martin is a shoo-in for the title role—everyone, that is, but the director, and AJ.  Even though he is an inexperienced actor, AJ has caught the director’s eye and is now a candidate for the lead. Martin’s understanding wife,  the very flamboyant director, and AJ’s new girlfriend all raise the stakes in this dynamic play.  Tucson theatre veterans Ina Shivack, Dan Reichel and Renata Rauschen play the remaining characters respectively.  “With a cast like this, the experience, the depth…how can a guy go wrong.  Each of the cast have added a bit of themselves to the characters and have helped bring them to life.”


No stranger to theatre, Flynn has been a high school drama teacher since 1970 in international schools in Europe and Asia as well as in schools in the United States. He has directed numerous school and community plays and musicals. He also wrote the book and lyrics for Affair Exchange, a musical comedy that enjoyed a successful run at The Playhouse in San Francisco.


The world premiere of “Taking On Macbeth” will open on May 10th and continue through May 26th.  Performances will be on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 with Sunday matinees at 2. For more information or to make reservations call 887 6239.

“Stop making sense,” David Byrne so famously said, “And go see ‘The Fox on the Fairway’ at Invisible theatre.”

Well, no, he didn’t say that last part. But it is still excellent advice. A cast of wild and wacky actors led by director Susan Claassen have unleashed one of the most enthusiastically uninhibited productions this company’s stage has seen in quite a while.

Making sense is never required. In fact the less you think about the logic in this comedy of bad bets, broken hearts and tacky fashions, the better.

Ever wonder what it would look like if a very proper lady accidentally let a raw oyster slip down the front of her dress? You won’t be wondering any longer.

Ken Ludwig (“Lend Me A Tenor,” “Moon Over Buffalo”) is the playwright here, with farce on his mind and garishly garbed golfers in his gun sights. Ludwig himself says “farce, essentially, is broad comedy.”

If this “Fox” was played any more broadly, you’d have to be adjusting the horizontal hold on your reality.

In a cast of equals, Lucille Petty is a bit more equal in using the manic pace to get her laughs while boosting her portrayal of frustrated young love in the Tap Room of the Quail Valley Country Club.

She plays the innocent Louise, an employee at the club, in love with Justin (RD Mower), her well-meaning swain forever misunderstood by Mr. Bingham (William Hubbard), the impeccably dressed country club boss.

Mower, who graduates from the University of Arizona theater school next month, makes his IT debut this month looking like he can anticipate a fine career in show business.

Bingham is the propriety-obsessed straight man to Dickie (Jack Neubeck) the millionaire-without-a-clue so proud of his ludicrous golf sweaters and exuberantly clashing pants. Being sensitive to the feelings of others isn’t high on Dickie’s list of things to do, either.

The plot is so totally irrelevant to the pleasure of watching all this overbearing hubris get turned into shaved ham, it is scarcely worth describing. But there are professional requirements.

So Dickie goads Bingham into betting $200,000 plus Bingham’s wife’s antique shop that Dickie’s country club team can beat the Quail Valley team in the annual golf tournament (which Quail Valley traditionally loses).

In to add their complications are Pamela (Lori Hunt) the free-living manhunter who never got over her teen crush on Bingham, and Muriel (Victoria McGee), Hubbard’s harridan wife who harbors a few secrets of her own.

You needn’t know anything about golf to get the jokes. Their conversation provides all the necessary information. The game itself, with first one side than the other out in front, takes place off stage with an announcer giving us the play-by-play.

“The Fox on the Fairway” continues through May 12 at Invisible Theatre, 1400 N. First Ave., with performances at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $28, group discounts available. For details and reservations, 882-9721, www.invisibletheatre.com

BYE BYE BIRDIE is one of the most captivating musical shows of our time. It is a satire done with the fondest affection, and tells the story of a rock and roll singer who is about to be inducted into the army. An English Teacher, What Did I Ever See in Him?, Put on a Happy Face, One Boy, A Lot of Livin' to Do, Kids, Rosie and Spanish Rose are musical theatre classics. This is the tops in imagination and good old fashion fun.
