Swimming With Sharks

West Side Story opens Tuesday at Orpheum West Side Story’s Sharks are killers, says Arthur Laurents, who wrote the original book and directed the latest revival of Leonard Bernstein’s classic musical. That means German Santiago, as Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks, plays one tough Puerto Rican.

Two Giants

Fences and Talk Radio in review by Warren Francke Neither is tall, but both men tower like stage giants in starkly different roles. In Fences, John Beasley plays Troy, scarred by an abusive father and the mid-century bigotry that denied his baseball talent. In Talk Radio, Jerry Longe is far removed from his annual Scrooge role. In sunglasses and Led Zeppelin T-shirt, he’s Barry Champlain, a rock-star radio jock...

Graphic Art

Erotic Body as Text show finishes at RNG Gallery Even the most prudish of viewers will tolerate the occasional nude in art; that is, as long as it is properly ensconced in a proper museum. That said, past and current staff at the Joslyn Art Museum could regale readers with tales of offended viewers who first encountered the idealized but sensual “Return of Spring” by 19th century painter William Adolphe...
