  • Classically Trained: Symphony to take on Tchaikovsky, Chopin

    A trip through any of Tchaikovsky's later symphonies is a trip indeed. The Russian composer goes from the tragic to the triumphant, from the reverent to the dejected and doleful. Listening to them is an exercise of the mind into the glories of a past...
  • On Theater: 2012 kicks off with premiering shows

    It's a new year and local theater companies — professional, community and collegiate — are waiting in the wings with a varied selection of stage productions, most of which will be unfamiliar to their audiences. Getting things off and...
  • Youmans: Audience takes control in 'Stuffed'

    A band of miscreant puppets and six comedian puppeteers took to the stage at the Irvine Barclay Theatre on New Year's Eve, largely not knowing what the evening of improv puppetry had in store. "Stuffed and Unstrung," Henson Alternative's foul-mouthed...
  • Shop for a good cause

    Ready, set, shop! Local volunteers and philanthropists are hoping for a dazzling turnout at this year's Christmas Co. extravaganza, themed "A Home-Cooked Holiday." It's the Newport Beach-based Junior League of Orange County, California Inc.'s largest...
  • 'CATS' lands on local stage

    "He would watch you without winking/And he saw what you were thinking/And it's certain that he didn't approve/Of hilarity and riot/So that folk were very quiet/When Skimble was about and on the move." — "Skimbleshanks: The Railway Cat" * Now in...

  • Classically Trained: New piece like a 'familiar soundtrack'

    One could call it a concert of the masters. A mastery of the piano, intimate and serene. A performance of the master's symphony, with all its shades of grandeur, subtle and striking. Inspiration from a master of science, whose celestial revelations...
  • VU rolls without Davis

    COSTA MESA — It's not swagger, exactly, but the Vanguard University women's basketball team may have its mojo back. The Lions, ranked No. 10 in the NAIA, handled visiting Concordia, 86-45, in a Golden State Athletic Conference game Tuesday to...
  • On Theater: 'Cats' still mesmerizes after all this time

    Having enjoyed feline companionship for the past two decades, I always get a kick out of Andrew Lloyd Webber's megahit musical "Cats" each time it stops by the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. It's back again — for the eighth time, albeit for an...
  • Reel Critics: Streep shines as Britain's 'Iron Lady'

    Reel Critics: Streep shines as Britain's 'Iron Lady'
    Once again, Meryl Streep gives an Oscar-worthy performance in a big role on the big screen. Her acting credentials are on vivid display as she virtually channels the core persona of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. She delivers a brilliant...
  • Youmans: Buckle up for 'Car Plays'

    "The Car Plays" is not your typical theatrical experience. Looking around before Sunday night's performance, there was no theater, cushioned seats or ushers in sight. Instead, attendees were met by a new kind of playing space: 15 cars parked on the...
  • Showing her skills at the piano

    Pegasus School third-grader Emma Joyce put her piano skills to the test Jan. 10 during a duet with the conductor of the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra. Emma joined Maxim Eshkenazy, who also serves as the assistant conductor of the Pacific Symphony in...
