By Chuck Graham,


OK, so imagine if Damon Runyon back around 1940 happened to see the Humphrey Bogart movie “We're No Angels” (which wasn't actually made until 1955) and thought “Hey, that is not a bad idea on which I can artfully construct a Christmas musical for the Great American Playhouse” (which didn't actually open until 2013). could happen. Just check out the holiday show opened at the Great American Playhouse, written and directed by Nick Seivert, titled “We're No Angels.”

Seivert is channeling Runyon for sure, as well as some of the themes made famous on Broadway and around the world in “Guys and Dolls.” All the dialogue is full of imaginative imagery calling up sneaky bookies taking street corner bets, more serious gambling on the boardwalk in Atlantic City and – of course – crap games that are particularly buoyant when pursued by members of various law enforcement agencies.

In Seivert's version it's 1933, a week before Christmas in Manhattan when we meet the trio of gangsters with hearts of gold dressed up as bell-ringing sidewalk Santas eager to place the bets of those who know the secret password.

All the production's roles are double cast, but on opening night these faux Santas were played by Mike Claridge as Dennis “Duke” Johnson, Randy McDonald as Julius “Junior” Moran and Seivert as Henry “bashful” Jones.

Once out of those Yuletide disguises and wearing their daily gangster garb, it must be said they had the widest and most outspoken neckties in captivity.

Adding the dialogue of the dames was Jacinda Rose Swinehart as Nellie “Thursday” Baxter, Amy DeHaven as Virginia “Brainy” Baxter, and Jennifer Ackerley Lawrence as Stella “Gams” Stanley.

Getting the sharpest suit and playing the villain, naturally, was melodrama veteran and visiting guest artist Stewart Gregory, who was menacing enough to do the job.

All the other parts and their accompanying costumes were filled by Sean MacArthur and Nancy LaViola, who is also the show's choreographer.

The story begins with the three Santa/bookies trying to use their insider gambling knowledge and some “sure-fire” tips on the horses to win a pile of cash for a friend. Well, it doesn't take long for that plan to go awry and the big boss Michael “Moose” Moran (Gregory) to get involved.

But the more dire their situation becomes, the more determined become this trio of Bashful, Duke and Junior as the story takes its audience from Manhattan to Atlantic City to Miami to Cuba and back to the Big Apple (only it wasn't called the Big Apple back then, because it was still Christmas of 1933 know...)

Included on the song list are “Happy Days Are Here Again,” “It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing” and “Sing Sing Sing.”

Did someone ask “What about the olio?” That would be a salute to the Christmas television specials of Dean Martin, with MacArthur wearing the white dinner jacket of Dino. Their singing and dancing goes from “Sleigh Ride” to “Jingle Bell Rock.”

Well worth the price of admission is McDonald's inspired mania as Jerry Lewis. Words are simply inadequate to the task of describing how McDonald creates and maintains the energy in this whacked-out impersonation.

We're No Angels” continues through Jan. 3 at the Great American Playhouse.  Performances are 7 p.m. Thursdays; 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Fridays; 3 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Saturdays; 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sundays.

**Reserve Your Seat Now**

Against the backdrop of a last-minute poetry slam competition, eight young poets traverse the stage and the tightropes of their braided desires. With three minutes to sway the judges, they must decide which is more important: the points or the poetry, the privilege of free speech and expression or the celebrity that comes along. Octagon infuses theatre with poetry slam in a way that’s never been seen, ripping open the clichés of the open mic while asking the cost of the spectacle of ripping open our wounds.



Kristiana Rae Colón is a Chicago-based poet, playwright, actor and educator.  Also an Ensemble member at Teatro Luna, Ms. Colon toured the United Kingdom for two months in 2013 with her collection of poems, promised instruments, published by Northwestern University Press. In the fall of 2012, she opened her one-woman show, Cry Wolf, in Chicago while her play, but I cd only whisper, had its world premiere at London’s Arcola Theater. She appeared on Season 5 of HBO’s Def Poetry Jam.

Use it or lose it, county tells city of arts center

Use it or lose it, county tells city of arts center

Arizona Daily Star

17 hours ago  •  
Pima County wants the city to live up to its promise to operate a downtown performing arts center, or turn it over to the county.
Back in 2007, the two governments entered an agreement to repair the historic former home of the All Saints Catholic Church, located at 408 South Sixth Avenue.
In exchange for $668,360 in Pima County bond money for foundation fixes, the city agreed to maintain and operate it.
But the building fell back into disrepair.
“Despite the City’s commitment,” County AdministratorChuck Huckelberry wrote in a letter to the City, “the building remains vacant, unused and vandalized.”
Huckelberry asked the city to either turn over the building, refund the county’s money or take steps to repair and open the building.
“We’re not going to waste $600,000 so let’s fix it up and get a user in there,” Huckelberry said. “We don’t want it to go to waste.”
Huckelberry said failing to address the outstanding issues could jeopardize the additional $1 million the city is seeking for the building in the 2015 bond proposal.
Some on the council weren’t enamored by the idea of ceding the property to the county.
“It’s just a land grab by Huckelberry,” Councilman Steve Kozachik said. “He continues to forget our taxpayers are his taxpayers. He needs to get over the idea that he's doing us a favor by recirculating Tucson taxpayer money back into the City.”
Mayor Jonathan Rothschild said he has reached an agreement, in principle, with Huckelberry over the building Wednesday afternoon.
In exchange for including the project in a successful future bond package, the city will agree to open the doors to the public.
“That’s an important property for the arts community and a historic property,” Rothschild said. “And we need to restore it and put it to public use.”
If voters don’t approve the bond package, Rothschild said the two sides would have to look at other options.
Huckelberry couldn’t be reached to confirm the agreement.
The city purchased the 1921 building in 1989, remodeled it and operated it as a theatre over the next decade. But it closed in 1999 and remained empty ever since.

Your heartfelt comments and praises touched all of us, especially the student actors.

PCC Theatre Arts

Many of you stayed after each performance to share your own stories with the cast and director. Some of you talked with us before the the show and several of you wrote wonderful notes. And, some very generous patrons put together enough funds to award four of the students with a $500 scholarship. You all left a "piece of your heart" with us. Thank you!

"I saw A Piece of my Heart last weekend and was amazed. The depth that the men and women brought to their roles was remarkable. What really struck me was the acting when they were not delivering lines or in a specific scene. They were present at all times. Really remarkable in actors so young. Hats off to cast and director. This is a production that everyone should see."

     - Arthur Rodger

"My partner Tim and I went to see this Saturday evening....and we were both blown away! Congratulations on another winner.

       I think what impressed us both was the ability of the cast to sustain a fairly high level of emotional intensity, for almost two hours. At the same time, the play never turned 'angry'
.....passionate and heartfelt, yes. In my head, it's fine line to walk, but the actors did it impeccably.

       As a 'child of the sixties' and a student of Presidential history, I've read quite a bit about the war in Southeast Asia; sadly, the role of women in this tragic conflict has largely been ignored. This play helps to remind all of us of the critical role(s) they often played..."
