Act Fast To Get Your Tickets For “Slowgirl”

By Chris Narloch

Two-person plays require strong writing and careful casting to keep an audience’s attention, but they also reap benefits for a viewer that can include a depth of character development and performance not found in many one-person plays or ensemble works.

The current production of “Slowgirl” at Sacramento’s Capital Stage boasts a pair of impressive performances, a smart script, and skillful direction that wrings every bit of drama out of this rich story of two damaged souls battling and ultimately bonding in the jungle.

Don’t Miss “Paradise Square: A New Musical” in Berkeley

By Chris Narloch

Previously in the River City: Carmelina suffered through an exorcism, and laughed about it with the ghost of her husband Arthur. He told her to ask about September 23rd.

The Cream of the Cinematic Crop From 2018

By Chris Narloch

This year’s Oscar nominations will be announced on Tuesday morning, Jan. 22, ending months of speculation by awards prognosticators, and then the apparently-host-free Academy Awards ceremony will be telecast on Feb. 24 by ABC.
