‘Not in my House’ Gives Dance New Meaning

By | 2018-10-03T19:19:53+00:00 October 3rd, 2018|Entertainment, Features|

Coming out stories. In the LGBTQ community, we all have one. Now, a unique collaboration between Kristi Faulkner Dance and the Ruth Ellis Center is turning those stories into art. "Not in my House' radically shifts the narrative about LGBTQ identity through the creative re-imagining of coming out stories in an evening-length performance blending vogue, contemporary dance and storytelling,” said event organizers.

The Frivolist: 6 Reasons Eating Alone at a Restaurant Is the Best Meal You’ll Ever Have

By | 2018-09-19T12:17:39+00:00 September 19th, 2018|Advice, Entertainment|

Being alone and being lonely are two different things. While I don’t prefer the latter, I embrace the former. I do a lot of things by myself, in fact. Go to the movies, sit on the beach, pop into a happy hour, enjoy bikes rides, even go on vacation. I also like to treat myself to lunches and dinners out where I can sit in solitude and think, work, or catch up on odds and ends on my to-do list. For those reasons and six more, here’s why eating alone at a restaurant is the best meal you’ll ever have.

By | 2018-09-05T11:48:28+00:00 September 5th, 2018|Entertainment, Lansing, Neighborhoods, Theater|

Over the Ledge Theatre is now featuring the play 'Dancing at Lughnasa' through Sept. 16. Winner of the 1992 Tony Award for best play, it was praised by the New York Times as being a "ravishing memory play" that "carries its characters and audience aloft." The story is said to be loosely based on the life of its writer, Brian Friel, and begins in Ireland's County Donegal in 1936.

By | 2018-09-05T11:45:12+00:00 September 5th, 2018|Advice, Entertainment, Features|

Quell the temptation to pitch your ex-relationships’ physical reminders with these five reasons to hold onto them.

It’ll Be a Gay Ol’ Time in Theaters Across Metro Detroit

By | 2018-09-05T11:43:12+00:00 September 5th, 2018|Applause, Guides, Theater|

If you’re a longtime theater fan – especially an LGBTQ theater fan – one thing you may have noticed over the years is that what’s popular one season may not be the next. Or that trends disappear as quickly as they arrive. That’s especially true of plays with LGBTQ themes and characters, which rise and fall and ebb and flow from one year to the next for no apparent reason.

Jon Strand: Dots! Exclamation points! Smiles!

For those with an obsession for counting things there are 10,000 alphabet letters in this review of pointillist artist Jon Strand’s exhibition: Oracles, Temples and Waves ... and a dragon named Raoul. But 10,000 is a piddling word count to be sure, compared to Strand’s creative dot, dot, dot detailing over nearly 50 years of painting and fascinated viewer acclaim in some 29 exhibitions of his art — including an onset exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1971 (the DIA currently owns two of his pieces). Now, his work is scheduled to be shown from Aug. 3 through 24, at the Wayne State University Arts Gallery.
