‘Twelfth Night’ Shows Audiences ‘How’ It’s Done

It’s never about the Who, What, When, or Where.

When it comes to performing Shakespeare, the ‘Who’ can be someone famous. You can bring in a star to perform a classic, but that certainly doesn’t guarantee a quality production. The ‘What’ will never be refreshing by itself. In this day and age, even the most obscure of the Bard’s plays have been performed thousands of times across the world. The ‘When’ and...

Cursive

It’s already been 16 months since Cursive’s last album, I Am Gemini, was released on Saddle Creek Records. While the album didn’t necessarily perform as well as it could have, the dedication frontman Tim Kasher gave to the project was admirable on its own. Since then, Kasher and the rest of the boys have been busy doing what they do best: playing shows. And, wow, they’ve played a lot of shows in their hometown of...
