Re: “The Beautiful Beast

Paperhand Puppet Intervention’s summer show “The Beautiful Beast”

Paperhand's 2016 summer show: "The Beautiful Beast" will take a look at the monsters and beasts that inhabit our dreams and folktales by peering through different lenses to explore the beauty, monstrousness and magic of these creatures.

Paperhand Puppet Intervention is a puppet theater company based out of Saxapahaw, NC. For over fifteen years they have been creating original large-scale puppet extravaganzas complete with giant puppets, masks, shadow puppets, stilt dancing, painted flats, live music and so much more!

Each year they write, create, build and perform a large summer pageant-play-extravaganza. These performances last about an hour, include an ensemble of professional musicians who create an original score of music and involve a cast of puppeteers, which has included as many as twenty-eight performers. Their summer extravaganza is attended by over 16,000 people!

If you have not seen Sarah Shook and the Disarmers, Friday night at Cats Cradle is the best time to get it done! Looking forward to seeing Blue Cactus for the first time.

Re: “FM Holdouts Band

This is a real decent band, saw them last year - lots of 80s and 90s stuff, professional.

Re: “Vincent

Vincent Van Gogh is arguably one of the most well recognized artists EVER re: name recognition from key works. And yet many people know remarkably little about his life, or the people who believed in him and brought him to the attention of the world. I'm so excited that this play is coming to our area, and can't wait to see it!!!

Re: “The New Colossus

An engaging, funny, powerful mess of a show. Well worth seeing. Even though it seems rather superficial at the beginning, and it is a bit episodic, but it hits some real powerful emotions in the second half. Plus, it's amazingly multi-faceted - indie guitar playing, singing, dancing, live camera work, literal man-in-the-street interviews, pre-recorded footage, a play within a play. Not to mention a wickedly wonderful soundtrack, that I want for my summer mix tape.

Re: “Eleanor Tallie, The Stolen Hearts

The Stolen Hearts are good, but Eleanor Tallie isn't quite what I had hoped for last time she came to Durham. I took my girlfriend to her gig last month because I had been told it was going to be something special, but was not really impressed. I like the Stolen Hearts though so that's why I still give this a 3 Star.

Re: “Eleanor Tallie

Fairly unimpressed with the show. She was a good singer, but lacked authenticity and soul. Seems she is more into being a "soul singer" and not about creating soul music. I am bummed to write this, but feel I need to.

Re: “The Elephant Man

Theatre In The Park delivers big again in this season's production of "The Elephant Man." Presented in TIP's intimate theatre, the show mesmerizes from start to finish. Ira David Wood III portrays Mr. Merrick with heartbreaking warmth and intelligence, contorting his body to match the appropriate physical deformities the entire show. The supporting cast is superb, notably Ira David Wood IV and Lynda Clark. This contemplative show gains it's power more from the other character's reactions to and treatment of Mr. Merrick (and his reactions and response) than from Mr. Merrick himself. There's only one more weekend to see this fabulous show. Don't miss it!

Re: “The Elephant Man

This small Theater always delivers big productions. I have seen many different styles of plays here and never been disappointed. Ira David Wood III leads groups of actors in many styles and has produced more play than i can count that have made me Cry,Laugh and yes even think. I you are looking for a Community Theater that offers Broadway quality shows check this Theater out soon.
I look forward to "The Elephant Man" The cast looks amazing!!

Re: “David Lindley

Have been a fan of Mr. Dave since I saw him on my 19th birthday in 1974. Last year got to see him again on my birthday in Greensboro where I mostly listened but grabbed a few images of him. Even played "Soul Of A Man" for my birthday at my wife's request. This is a not to be missed show and it was packed last year in Greensboro so I wouldn't delay getting tickets for it. Mr. Dave tends to draw almost all the local musicians out of the woodwork so it will be interesting to see who shows up to see him at the Motorco.

Now we're saying if you have herpes on your mouth you didn't do anything bad, but [genital herpes] becomes a moral issue.
