The Theater: African-American Shakespeare Co.’s ‘Lysistrata’

By Ken Bullock, Special to the Planet
Tuesday March 27, 2007

“Stop in the Name of Love, or, Until the War Is Over, Nobody Gets Over.” The subheads of the African-American Shakespeare Co.’s production of Lysistrata say it all—as director Rhodessa Jones amplifies, “Lysistrata is a cry for peace by women driven to change the world using the ultimate weapon!” -more-


Green Neighbors: Spring is the Time to Buy And Plant Native Redbuds

By Ron Sullivan
Tuesday March 27, 2007

If you’re walking down University Avenue, or driving up the freeway to the Richmond Bridge, or taking a car or bike jaunt up around Clear Lake, you’ll have noticed that the redbuds are blooming. We’ve borrowed specimens of this gorgeous scarf that the Central Valley wears around its eastern and western foothills. Good idea, for landscape and ornament in the cities and for the most difficult spots along roads. -more-

Altarena Playhouse Stages Edward Albee’s ‘Virginia Woolf’

By Ken Bullock, Special to the Planet
Friday March 23, 2007

It all begins “after hours” with the simplest of games: “Anyway, Bette Davis turns around, puts down her groceries and says, ‘What a dump!’ I want to know the name of the picture!” demands Martha, and husband George teases her in a patronizing deadpan. But when he announces a nightcap, Martha rasps, “Are you kidding? We got guests coming over!” -more-


About the House: The Last 10 Percent Rule of Remodeling

By Matt Cantor
Friday March 23, 2007

Economics is a wonderful and fascinating field. When I think about the things I’d like to study as I get older, it keeps getting pushed higher up on the list.
