Dreamgirls at Poteet Theatre: A Spectacular Dream Fulfilled

Dreamgirls at Poteet Theatre: A Spectacular Dream Fulfilled

The Oklahoma premiere of Dreamgirls at Poteet Theatre was a visually spectacular blast from the past. The elaborate set design and wardrobe perfectly captured the mood of the 60s and 70s, and the masterfully crafted storytelling and breathtaking choreography effectively carried the audience to the heart of the Motown era for a tale of love, [...]

THE MIC at Ice Event Center and Grill: A New Home for Hip-Hop Culture

THE MIC at Ice Event Center and Grill: A New Home for Hip-Hop Culture

When people discuss the arts, images of theatre, classical music, ballet and paintings often dominate the conversation. For many, however, hip-hop does not even enter the dialogue. The genre, which is actually a complex hybrid of music, poetry and storytelling, arguably has a bigger crossover appeal and global cultural impact on fashion and style than any other form of creative expression. [...]

Lobby Hero @ Carpenter Square Theatre – A Thrilling Ride

Lobby Hero @ Carpenter Square Theatre – A Thrilling Ride

Lobby Hero at Oklahoma City’s Carpenter Square Theatre is a thrilling, funny, emotional ride of twists, turns and turbulence that is well worth the trip. The Carpenter Square stage was beautifully transformed into a colorful, ornate yet modest middle-income Manhattan apartment lobby. The realistically worn present day backdrop served as the canvas on which a complex picture would [...]

The Vine Open Mic Poetry Night – A Date With Destiny

The Vine Open Mic Poetry Night – A Date With Destiny

On Tuesday night, Urban Roots was bristling with nervous energy. Or maybe it was just me. After all, it was time for The Vine Open Mic Poetry night, and just before I left my home in Norman to drive to the Deep Deuce district in downtown Oklahoma City, I made the decision that I was [...]

Review: 1st Sunday Brunch @ Urban Roots – An Extended Family Affair

On Sunday, November 3rd, Urban Roots held their monthly 1st Sunday Brunch from noon to 5pm. This was my first time attending the event, but having been to Urban Roots a couple times before, one might think I would have known what to expect. One would be mistaken. If there’s one thing one should expect at Urban Roots, [...]

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW ~~Lyric Theatre

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW ~~Lyric Theatre

This weekend I was lucky enough to see Lyric Theatre’s most recent rendition of The ROCKY HORROR Show, which completed it run 11/2/2013. I am no Virgin to the thrills and chills one can get from the “antici…………pation” of witnessing a production of this cult classic, as I have seen it done multiple times. This particular staging was unique [...]

Review: Quentin Moore – An Old Soul Reincarnated

Review: Quentin Moore – An Old Soul Reincarnated

Quentin Moore was billed as a neo soul artist scheduled to perform Saturday night at Oklahoma City’s Urban Roots. When I arrived at the Deep Deuce getaway midway through his first set, however, I was delighted to learn that Mr. Moore leaned perhaps a tad bit less on the “neo” side than one might expect given his [...]

Review: Badu-izms? Good-u-izms!

Review: Badu-izms? Good-u-izms!

On Saturday October 26th, OCCC’s Bruce Owen Theatre welcomed “Badu-izms – A Tribute to Erykah” for two performances only, at 3pm and 7pm. I caught the 3pm show, and left the theatre lamenting that the musical celebration wasn’t going to be around longer. The show opened with a taste of the Vine Open Mic Poetry [...]
