    Here There Be Dragons

    Posted: December 14th 2014 @1:57 PM

    Matthew Reilly’s new thriller, The Great Zoo of China, has action. Lots of it. On every page. Of course, a lot of action does not necessarily a novel make, and when even the most exciting of sequences is repeated too …

  • Freud’s Last Session Explores Gray Areas with Depth and Warmth

    Posted: June 25th 2014 @3:28 PM

    Good versus evil. Black versus white. Atheist versus believer. Playwright Mark St. Germaine sets us up in Freud’s Last Session (now at the Cape Playhouse in Dennis) to believe that we’re about to witness the extremes doing battle; what the audience …

     
  • One Man, Two Guvnors, Lots of Laughter

    Posted: June 24th 2014 @6:13 PM

    Michael Steers’ production of Bent at the Provincetown Theater takes its audience—irrespective of sexual preferences—to places that no one wants to go, and does so with refinement, dignity, and—occasionally—humor. Bent targets everyone: it questions the meaning of self, it examines how …

     
  • Review: The Monuments Men

    Posted: February 15th 2014 @10:29 AM

  • Gregory Lenz, Provincetown Photographer

    Posted: February 13th 2014 @5:09 PM

    I knew that I was in love with Gregory Lenz’s work from the first moment I saw it on Facebook. Other artists in Provincetown talk about the light; Gregory captures it. His photographs call to a dreamland where light is …
