    When the word "circus" comes to mind, you may envision clowns, circus tents, elephants and elaborate costumes. But think again. This time, imagine a circus without exotic creatures and where the performers are not nameless, faceless or hidden by...

    Reel Critics: Some of year's best movies not recognized as nominees
    Nine films were nominated for Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards, but I think only my top three picks below have a real chance of winning. They're included here with some other movies that I think also deserved recognition: 1. "The Artist"—...

    Little Angels say thank you
    The Little Angels Children's Folk Ballet of Korea are the South Korean people's roving goodwill ambassadors. On Wednesday night, before a sold-out Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa, the 32 members of the troupe's present-day generation of child performers...

  • Classically Trained: Chicago Symphony makes stop in Costa Mesa

    It was the kind of concert that you walked in thinking about, underwent intermission thinking about and left thinking about, too. That's because the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's single-night, stop-on-the-tour performance Feb. 17 in Costa Mesa wasn't...
  • Classically Trained: Conductor recalls having a 'Blast'

    To most people, the sound of music students practicing independently is noise, a cacophonous nonsymphony of assorted tones. But to a band nerd like me, Irvine High School's band room had a dozen distinct timbres — a saxophone practicing her...

    Open mics, ears at The LAB
    Attending open-mic night at The LAB Antimall in Costa Mesa is a lot like a game of artistic roulette — you never know what number is going to come up next. Acts on Wednesday night outside the Gypsy Den and adjacent to Creme Tangerine Records, the...
  • On Oscars: The best often don't win

     On Oscars: The best often don't win
    On Sunday, Hollywood celebrates itself and honors its own. All eyes (or most of them anyway) will be on the presentations of the Academy Awards. But do the Oscars always end up in the right hands? Opinions abound on this topic, and what follows is only...
  • Mailbag: Traffic lights in Irvine out of sync

    Re "Irvine's PSA seeks to deter wrecks," Feb. 19: Irvine traffic signals are exquisitely asynchronous. They are impeccably interminable as eight lane directions (through and turn) languidly separately proceed, plus time delays. Drivers park in place or...
