Byhalia, Mississippi via Carnegie Stage: A Review

Our experiences with off the WALL productions at the Carnegie Stage never fail to leave me moved, thoughtful, and a bit perplexed. The current production of Byhalia, Mississippi did not fail me in the regard. The play, written by Evan Linder, is making its Pittsburgh debut this month. Act now to see this because it is heading […]

Fogo de Chão Opens in Pittsburgh; Here’s What I Experienced

Opening caveat – I am not a foodie, restaurant critic, authority on Brazilian culture, or in any way qualified to properly review a restaurant. I’m just a lesbian with a blog. I like to try new things, but my opinions are only constrained by the opinions of Ledcat.  Welcome to my experience. Ledcat and I […]

PICT Staging of ‘Jane Eyre’ Fires the Imagination for a Victorian Classic

You should go see Jane Eyre at PICT Pittsburgh’s Classical Theater, running now through April 28, 2018 in Oakland. We were there for opening night. Let me back up. I read the novel several times, along with others in the Bronte canon. I liked this novel, but I didn’t love it. I also didn’t love sister […]

Rent: A Review in Pittsburgh

Rent 20th Anniversary Tour Pittsburgh

22 years after Rent arrived on Broadway, I finally saw the musical last night at Heinz Hall. As powerful as the show is, I can’t help but grieve that I’m seeing it as a classic rather than in its raw early days when everything was timely. Not that the story isn’t relevant today, but I’m […]

Fish Fry Friday: Return to Assumption & Finding My Fish Fry Fame on March 9, 2018

A very late post on my part – my apologies! It’s been a stressful week for me, so going to any fish fry felt overwhelming. Ledcat gently suggested we revisit Assumption to get a good meal in a familiar space. Now I don’t really need to re-review the location or food. I’ll just make note […]

Fish Fry Friday Special Report: Church of the Assumption Launches Recycling Team

This is probably one of the most awesome blogging outcomes I’ve ever discovered. The folks at the Church of the Assumption in Bellevue have regularly followed my reviews and always taken time to thank me for constructive feedback. Recently, I learned that the volunteers met sometime after the first Friday in Lent and decided to […]
