    Ghosts in the Machines

    Performance art or happening? Light-and-space art or installation? The mixed-media art at Lumonics, also known as the Tanner Studio, resolutely resists categorizing. It's all of the above and then some. The gallery is full of sculptures, some of whic...

    It Takes Two to Tangle

    When Seinfeld fans joke ad nauseum that the popular TV show is "about nothing," they mean that the sitcom doesn't have a traditional story hook. There's no overarching premise along the lines of, say, "Widowed dad raises three kids with help from a J...

    Apples and Oranges

    Everything but the Kitchen Sink might make a better name for Art Frenzie, a new Wilton Manors gallery crammed with an amazing amount, not to mention variety, of art. Paintings and prints cover the walls, of course, but they're also hung from the ceil...

    He Wrote, She Wrote

    Valentine's Day is long gone, but the utterly charming revival of the 1963 musical She Loves Me at the Actors' Playhouse in Coral Gables proves that romance is lasting. Certainly the story of feuding shop clerks who unwittingly fall for each other as...

    Yeah, Right, Einstein!

    "A man walks into a bar." Standup comics have launched into routines with that line so often that it's no surprise comedian-turned-movie-actor Steve Martin chooses the same set-up to fuel the many laughs in his first effort as a playwright. Only in t...

    Nobody's Home

    The work of sculptor Duane Hanson exerts a powerful pull on people. It's not unusual to see a handful of museum visitors clustered around one of his life-size, detailed, uncannily realistic sculptures of the human figure, inspecting it with both amaz...

    Death, Where Is Thy Wit?

    Nothing brings theater to life like a little death. Let a doctor say someone has only a few months to live, and you've got drama. In recent years some of the best productions have posted alarming mortality rates. Gay characters, in particular, have s...

    Friend of the Little People

    In a professional career that lasted just more than a decade, Keith Haring not only proved to be one of the most prolific American artists of his generation, he also forged one of the most instantly recognizable, unmistakable styles in contemporary a...

    Look Ma, No Royalties

    Having to wait for one month out of the year to buy candy hearts with cute sayings imprinted on them is no big deal. After all, those hard little wafers have lost much of their appeal now that they're more likely to break my aging molars than attract...

    Undress Rehearsal

    In an example of last-minute housecleaning before the February ratings sweeps began, ABC network executives pulled the plug on the cop drama Cracker. While I liked the few episodes I saw about the raffish psychologist who solves homicides, I'm glad i...

    Brotherly Hate

    Touted as a comedy-thriller, Corpse! is more accurately a thriller-comedy in which the suspenseful plotting of Act I gives way to farce in Act II. Picture a film adaptation of an Agatha Christie mystery starring Benny Hill, and you'll have some idea ...

    Couch Potato Classicism

    The problem with "Sandro Chia: New Work" is not the art itself, some of which is quite impressive, but its presentation. The show, which runs through March 15 at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, feels haphazard, thrown together, as if someone had hastil...

    The Devil Made Him Do It

    The Othello Project, which is now on stage at the Florida Shakespeare Theatre in Coral Gables, takes its Deep South setting and part of its title from "The Mississippi Project," in which more than 800 college students from the North traveled down Sou...

    A Portrait of the Artist

    James Joyce's work is an acquired taste. Whereas the late Irishman's short-story collection Dubliners (1914) is an easy read, the experiments in style in his later novels have always banned them from my beach bag. Not willing to thread my way through...

    Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

    Gertrude Stein, no stranger to the art world, once famously dismissed sculpture by complaining that "one always has the bother of being able to walk around it." Harsh words, perhaps, but whenever I see some of the massive heaps of metal and stone foi...

    Give 'Em What They Want

    The recent referendum creating Miami-Dade County is just the latest sign the area is suffering from an identity crisis worse than Sally Field's in Sybil. While the county government proffers the Miami moniker as an all-purpose consumer label, many re...

    Brothers in Alms

    The convoluted political negotiations surrounding Pope John Paul II's trip to Cuba next week seem facile compared to the grave-robbing, relic-switching, and sundry ecumenical dirty tricks attendant to a papal visit in playwright Michael Hollinger's f...

    Small Wonder

    Some people call it the Black Box of Hollywood, a theater so tiny that its lobby consists of a table and two chairs located outside on the sidewalk. So tiny that the actors, working on a stage 27 feet wide by 15 feet deep, virtually perform in the la...

    Urban Contempo

    At a time when gang-related, drive-by shootings plague the nation's major cities, a 40-year-old musical in which two rival packs sit down to a war council at the local soda shop and order "Cokes all around" would seem hopelessly dated. Yet when a pol...

    Woman on the Verge

    Her boyfriend recalled seeing her drenched in blood and coated with gold dust. The boyfriend, Alejandro Gomez Arias, and his eighteen-year-old companion Frida Kahlo were returning to their homes in suburban Mexico City that September day in 1925 when...
