A love affair at Seattle Symphony
by Rod Parke - SGN A&E Writer

The best experiences are the hardest to describe. This Seattle Symphony concert with Mstislav Rostropovich conducting combined genius (composers) with genius (conductor) and whipped it all together with such warmth and humanity that it reminded one of what music is supposed to be about.

Rostropovich is no stranger to Seattle audiences.

EXPLORING NEW YORK CITY - Avenue Q: Muppet Nostalgia
by E. Joyce Glasgow - SGN A&E Writer

If you grew up with the Muppets and have a certain nostalgia for them, you'll probably enjoy this puppet and human musical. To be clear, Jim Hensen's organization has a prominently posted disclaimer about any association with this Muppet-"like" show next to the theatre box office and in the program.

EXPLORING NEW YORK CITY
Bayard's: Elegant, gracious and professional

by E. Joyce Glasgow - SGN A&E Writer

It was New Year's Eve. I emerged, with only a handful of others, from the Wall St. subway station, all quietly dispersing into the silent, foggy night. I marveled at the large, decorated Christmas tree which greeted me, its lights glowing in t

Fateless is a surreal, low-key tale of a boy's journey to hell & back
by Derich Mantonela - SGN A&E Writer

Fateless

Opens Friday at the Metro

I systematically avoid Holocaust movies. They are just too painful for me to watch. An exception was "The Pianist," which I more or less forced myself to see, and ended up appreciating and admiring.

Another is first-time Hungarian

Words of wonder and wisdom from a 'woman warrior' on the little screen and in real life
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

You may have missed this wonderful and very attractive actress (I did too), at the Emerald City Comicon earlier this month, but through the magic of print, you can still know what the actress who played 'Chia' for years on 'Farscape', thinks about Hollywood. And so many other things. Gigi Ed

Flesh, flesh and more flesh, all jiggling and being delightful at the Moisture Festival Burlesque

Moisture Festival 2006

Burlesque (at The Liberty)

Three nights with the Russians at Benaroya
by Rod Parke - SGN A&E Review

On three consecutive nights the Seattle Symphony brought us the Russian National Orchestra, the combined Russian and Seattle players, and Jane Eaglen singing Russian arias. The quality varied from exciting to disappointing, but never dipped below interesting.

The Russian National Orchestra is the o

Reunion of Sappho's patrons to take place this week, organizer Mary Stewart talks to SGN
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

There used to be another women's bar in this town. In fact, over the years that I've been here, there've been at least two that, unfortunately no longer exist, but the need for another women's bar, one that serves older Lesbians and their friends does exist. To this end, Mary Stewart from, ret

EXPLORING NEW YORK CITY - Sweeney Todd: Brilliant
by E. Joyce Glasgow - SGN A&E Writer

The new Broadway production of Sweeney Todd starring Patti LuPone and Michael Cerveris is brilliant. Distilled and minimalist and a bit gothic, this highly original and contemporary production, first created for the London stage by director John Doyle, shrinks the cast size down to one third the size

A PERFECT TRIO AT EARLY MUSIC GUILD
by Rod Parke - SGN A&E Writer

Sometimes the first notes of a concert announce that a good time is about to be had. Such was the case with Trio Mediaeval at the Early Music Guild's final event in its International Series. The three women from Norway immediately filled Town Hall with such a warm yet pure sound that any doubts about a tot

Q-Scopes by Jack Fertig


ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Erotic opportunities are easily found, and they confound plans and communications with platonic friends - who are really more important in the long run. Keep priorities, messages, and appointments clear, and have as much fun as that allows!
