When did javas start roasting? Should that be Boulder/Club Java?
It is true, she has been working both Boulder Coffee in store and the Java's Coffee Truck (not Java's Cafe in store)
she works in the Javas coffee truck
Thank you for pointing that out, Annabelle. We have corrected the mistake. Sorry about that!
Is she singing again?
Error: Frankie for Best Barista has worked at Boulder Coffee for this whole year, not Java's.
The play is not political art because it is not a made-up story; it is biographical non-fiction. But in the history of theatre, there is long tradition of performances of fiction written to address issues of current events that are central to society itself, encouraging consciousness and social change. "My Name is Rachel Corrie" is rather an expose' of suppressed information, that has escaped from the corral, by virtue of its literary merit. A very fortunate diary, written with no idea of its future importance. Ron Johnson
Thank you for point out their names, Mark. The text has been corrected.
What a stirring performance, about hope and action in the face of conditions which the reviewer so aptly describes - "v iolently-enforced curfews, infrastructure- and livelihood-destroying checkpoints, a growing abundance of sniper towers, the perpetual buzz of Apache helicopters, destroyed wells and greenhouses, and the daily threat to houses by bulldozer or tank-mounted missiles" - as unadulterated terrorism. Terrorism done TO the Palestinians.
Great review, Casey. Alaina's last name is Olivieri, and Yuko's is Hashimoto.
Beautiful job as always by Carl and Janine! Props to Ralph's direction, and Kat's lighting. And, a special bravo to musical director/pianist Andy Pratt. This music isn't easy to sing or play-- it takes a seriously talented professional.
I walked backwards in front of the tricycle for 18 minutes and filmed much of the action up close and personal. Security was in the impossible position of creating a path through a packed crowd who had no space to move. In 62 years I have seen many shows and events but this was a one of a kind experience. It was surreal to adults and the stuff of nightmares to the younger attendee. A father with his daughter on his shoulders behind me in the crush of people kept saying, "close your eyes and cover your ears, I cannot get you out of here". The lights, the fire and smoke, the sounds, the costumes, and the actions of the actors disoriented the crowd. Probably 99% of the crowd saw less than 5 minutes of the tricycle moving through the park because it was impossible to see over the heads of the crowd once the procession got 10 or 15 feet away from the observer. I can understand why most of the crowd was disappointed and frustrated to not be able to see what was happening because they missed an incredible experience. I will edit my video footage and post to you tube once it is finished. I will post a link here.
You were lucky if you could see any of it. This was the wrong venue for this. Plus the security people were less than helpful, I would say snarky. The only thing we could see was the fire shooting up at one point. At the Grand Finale if you were behind the Tricycle, as many people were, the only thing you could see was the cage in the air. Everything in front of the tricycle was blocked. Very frustrating. If they looked at the site someone should have realized this was a mistake. There are a lot of folks who would not have said this was a fun event, but an unorganized mob scene.
I agree with Mr. Schila's characterization of "Tricycle" as "an incredible spectacle." I attended with my two kids, ages 10 and 12. We were far away from the early part of the performance, and I was worried that they would get bored. Toward the end, the tricycle rolled right past us. We were well positioned to enjoy the finale. After the show was finished, my kids declared it the greatest thing they had ever seen!
I learned more about the narrative from reading this review than I did from experiencing the performance. What a fun event!
Patrick Jaouen- best Solo Artist of Rochester
Ummm Brandon, are you not aware that there is a separate category for best original band???
Just gotta throw this out there...Cover bands are a joke. If you vote a cover band the best of Rochester, You're basically saying our city is best represented by a lack of originality. We have some amazing and ORIGINAL talent here.Think before you vote!
EVERYONE SHOULD be aware that a young Rochester artist has made it onto The Voice (on NBC). Watch beginning September 22nd, when the new season debuts. The singer/songwriter is AMANDA LEE PEERS. I happen to know her well and she is very deserving. The program does not allow contestants to divulge details, but she has publicly announced her involvement. I have reason to believe we will see her on the televised portions, and my hunch is she advances beyond the blind auditions.
Tune in on 9/22 but also check out her work online in the interim: http://thedriftwoodsailors.com/ She is also on YouTube, Facebook, ReverbNation, etc. Hooray for Amanda and for Rochester. More local musicians are poised to break out soon (like my pal Alyssa Trahan of East Rochester) SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC - help these artists hold onto their dreams!
The Skycoasters have my enthusiastic support. I (almost) never miss them in the Roch. area. They are a band of diverse backgrounds (yes... they're old like us) But... as old as they are, they keep us smilin and remembering the "GOOD OLD DAYS)
As much as the ride freaked me out, the rock-o-planes were a family favorite. The enchanter(the haunted house ride) was awesome. These were late 70's early 80's rides down by the bobsled. The goofy house was by far the best. The giant spinning cylinder to run through. Crazy and zany slanted floor. I'm 38 now and a mother of two. Seabreeze has always been a crowd pleaser and always will be!
