Somehow, in the blink of a bloody eye, I’ve found myself at the end of yet another month. Having survived acting in one play and then been cast in another; having briefly disappeared to Manhattan for a New York minute and returned both enlightened and inspired and in some ways even more confused. I’ve also, weirdly enough, in my search for some sort of clarity or direction as the swirling elements of my life keep stubbornly failing to coalesce smoothly, found myself getting into astrology; and thus wondering if all the ups and downs of my life lately can be at least partially explained by something called a Saturn Return.

An Unconventional Solution To Social Isolation In Tracy Jones
While the idea of a character being on the search for themselves is a pretty classic one, few characters have taken the concept as literally as does Tracy Jones, the protagonist of a play of the same name currently on view at Island City Stage until this June 18th. Described as “a comedy about friendship, connection and chicken wings,” the show comes to ICS as part of a rolling world premiere, after previous stops in Rochester, NY and Williamston, MI. It takes place at a party thrown by said protagonist, to which she has had the bright idea of inviting every other woman named Tracy Jones in an attempt to alleviate her crushing sense of loneliness.

Miami City Ballet’s ‘Entradas’ Showcases Great Ballet
To end its 2022/2023 season, Miami City Ballet closed out with Entradas, a performance dedicated to the pioneers of American ballet, with choreography from renowned choreographers like George Balanchine. Not only did this concert show what the company is made of, but where it came from, and that’s my biggest takeaway.

Questioning the Princess Complex The Hilarious Way With ‘Disenchanted’
Whether you’re a dedicated Disney fanatic or a dedicated Disney detractor, you’ll probably find plenty to enjoy in Disenchanted, a raunchy send-up of princesses new and old that will be playing for only one more weekend at the Kravis Center’s Rinker Playhouse thanks to MNM Theatre Company. Brought to you by your “hosts,” Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty, the concept of the show is that it is a revue a gaggle of Disney princesses are putting on to express their dissatisfaction with the way they are portrayed in the famous films. And they’ve also got a few objections to the oppressively narrow standards of behavior they are expected to adhere to, from keeping their “cherry intact til marriage” and waiting until they find their prince to come to being left behind to do keep up with housework while the men go off on all the real adventures.
