‘The House of Yes’ delivers macabre comedy

The time is Thanksgiving. The place, McLean, a posh Virginia suburb near Washington, D.C. Twenty years after JFK’s assassination, one member of the Pascal clan has a fixation in her life: re-enacting the Kennedy assassination, handling her namesake’s role with zeal for incongruity. The Jerry Herman Ring Theater becomes the setting for a family dinner…

Renaissance 101:

The thing about the Florida Renaissance Festival is that, it’s not for everyone. Those who don’t really dig history, guys on horses beating each other up or girls in tight corsets, will probably not have a grand old time. If, however, one enjoys seeing cleavage explode out of clothing or seeing great classics like Beowolf…

astrology

Dear Reader, This experimental column consists of psychical advice and some good, old-fashioned Ann Landers-esque wisdom. Significantly, our resident psychic believes that conventional horoscopes dimly represent the realities of life because the typical astrological analysis of distant stars fails to account for quantum mechanical shifts. Predictive power increases with proximity to our own planet; that…

Queer film club makes blazin’ trail

Mastermind professor Anthony Barthelemy, while watching the movie Head On, came up with a brilliant idea to help diversify the campus’ culture.

Fiery Females ROAR in Miami

Le Tigre aren’t real tigers, but they can certainly roar. When three fierce women get on stage carrying only their instruments, their anger, their pride of being women, and their political and social messages, the chaos is inevitable. Fronted by former Bikini Kill singer and feminist icon Kathleen Hanna, Le Tigre lead the new wave…

Movie night saves the day

Saturday night, students cuddled up on couches and mouthed the words to their favorite childhood movies on the second floor of the University Center. Canes Night Live, an event that had been planned as an outdoor movie screening, was moved indoors because of rain and cold weather. “It would have been a lot better outside,”…

An oasis in downtown Miami

The first thing you’ll notice may well be the attorneys, hastily making their exit after a long day of prosecuting or defending suspects at downtown’s South Florida District courthouse cordoned by thick orange barricades. Then again, if you arrive a little later, lingerie displayed on Nicks’s family clothing store across the street might be the…

Unwritten Law

It was back in 1994 when the San Diego based punk rock band Unwritten Law first set foot on a South Florida stage. Soon after the release of three low-key albums on a string of independent labels, the band went looking to spread its name to a broader, equally welcoming audience and quickly found it….

enchants

It’s been said before, and I’ll say it again: Calling Cirque du Soleil “just a circus” is analogous to calling the Sistine Chapel “just a little old church.” With acts that range from the deeply philosophical to the intensely erotic to the profoundly non-sensical, Cirque du Soleil’s “Quidam” is not merely a show-it is a…
