Portrait of the Artist as an Old Man: Llyn Foulkes: One Man Band, reviewed.

Llyn Foulkes' painting The Awakening (1994-2012).

It's been a few years since I was way out of my depth trying to write about "visual art" -- by which I mean stuff that hangs on walls, that is, not cinema -- but reviewing the documentary Llyn Foulkes: One Man Band for The Dissolve brought me right back. I enjoyed the visit.

College Try: Theater J's The Hampton Years, reviewed

This week's City Paper theater column was supposed to include reviews of Theater J's new The Hampton Years and American Century Theater's revived Biography. The Sunday matinee of Biography I attended was cancelled due to a power failure 30 minutes into the show, and there wasn't another performance scheduled before my Monday-evening deadline, regrettably.

So I ended up with a few more hundred words of real estate in which to unpack what I consider be the very earnest and honorable Hampton Years' very earnest and honorable shortcomings. And also the rather less honorable shortcoming of my published review, wherein I reported that the artist Elizabeth Catlett, a character in The Hampton Years, is still alive. In fact, Ms. Catlett died last year. I apologize for my stupid, sloppy error.
