    Where Are Conservatives in the Arts?
    What is the role of conservatives in art? Do the conservatives and liberals relate to each other? This is a hot topic whenever art communities meet. The topic was discussed in the Arts Advocacy Day and as they say; even though they are of different opinions, they need to work together when it comes to art.

    All Things Must Pass: Orbiter 3 members consider their finale
    Four years ago, I got an email from playwright Douglas Williams, telling me about a new project. Williams and six other theatermakers launched Orbiter 3 with the intention to produce six original plays (one by each playwright), then dissolve. Along the way, the collective added a couple members, but this month's production of A People by L.M.

[Allens Lane Theater, 601 W. Allens Lane] May 4-20, 2018; allenslane.org

    I HATE HAMLET: (Allens Lane): Theater on theater
    Allens Lane Theater company, directed by Mariangela Saavedra offers an evening of community fun with I HATE HAMLET, a lighthearted comedy about theater's favorite topic: theater.

HOPE AND GRAVITY (1812 Productions): “Even the lightest things come crashing back down to earth.”

...seen, HOPE AND GRAVITY now tops my fave Hollingerlist.   [1812 Productions, Plays and Players Theatre, 1714 Delancey Place] April 26 – May 20, 2018; 1812productions.org

    HOPE AND GRAVITY (1812 Productions): "Even the lightest things come crashing back down to earth."
    A huge panel of Pieter Bruegel the Elder's Fall of Icarus, spans the entire stage before the show starts. It's the perfect signature painting to introduce a brightly comedic story that has an accidental occurrence. To say HOPE AND GRAVITY is unusual would be an understatement.

    OUR FEW AND EVIL DAYS (Inis Nua): Tantalizing ambiguity
    Inis Nua Theatre Company presents the American premiere of a sensational play by Mark O'Rowe; this is no small coup since O'Rowe is a major Irish playwright ( Terminus, Made in China, Howie the Rookie). And the company has done him proud: a flawless production directed by Tom Reing with great finesse reveals a play of tantalizing, troubling ambiguity.

The Philadelphia Orchestra pulls in an audience with a surprisingly good Philadelphia Voices

[Philadelphia Orchestra at Verizon Hall, Kimmel Center, 300 S. Broad Street] April 5-7, 2018, kimmelcenter.org

    The Philadelphia Orchestra pulls in an audience with a surprisingly good Philadelphia Voices
    Knowing that the program would contain a collage of sounds and poetry collected and collaged by Tod Machover, creative director at MIT's Media Lab, I assumed Philadelphia Voices would be a cute, little, piece of popular music with trite songs about cheesesteaks. It was neither trite nor trivial.
