HEARTS purse auction features Nash Street and one-of-a-kind finds

Posted 2/21/2009 in Entertainment

Patti Johnson loves an artistic challenge. The Columbus artist has been busy transforming a cigar box into a trendy accessory and a shell-shaped container into a stylish adornment. It’s all for a good cause. Johnson, and others like her, are gearing up for the third annual HEARTS Spring Purse and Bag Auction benefiting the non-profit after-school tutoring program.

‘The Glass Menagerie’ and screamers highlight week at MUW

Posted 2/21/2009 in Entertainment

With incredible nuance and what some might call an almost preternatural insight, Tennessee Williams crafted on paper some of literature and film’s most memorably complex and flawed characters. A few of them will be in Columbus for a visit this week. The brutish “Stanley Kowalski” and his long-suffering “Stella.” An overbearing “Amanda Wingfield,” her tragically fragile daughter, “Laura,” and conflicted son “Tom” — in one form or another, they each will resurrect the spirit of the famous playwright born in Columbus in 1911.

 

Adele Elliott: Slumdogs and fat cats

Oscar hype is a very big deal in many places. Not so much in Columbus, I suppose, since most of the Academy Award nominated films are not shown locally. We’ll probably catch them, after the fact, on HBO.

Tennessee Williams celebrated with ‘Meals for a quarter’ Friday on MUW campus

Posted 2/14/2009 in Entertainment

When it comes to bargains, the Mississippi University for Women Department of Music and Theatre can’t be beat. For a mere quarter, they are offering Brando, red beans and rice and an evening of Tennessee Williams Friday, Feb. 20, in Cromwell Communication Center on the MUW campus. As a prelude to its production of Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie” Feb. 26-March 1, the department’s “Meals for a quarter in the Quarter” will include “dinner and a movie” beginning at 7:30 p.m. The original play, written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author born in Columbus, won the prestigious New York Drama Critics Circle Award in 1945. “When Tennessee Williams was a struggling artist in New Orleans, he lived for a while in a home run by an eccentric landlady who tried briefly to open a restaurant,” explained play director Brook Hanemann, of MUW. “To help pay rent, Williams passed out flyers for his landlady brandishing his own advertising slogan: ‘Meals for a quarter in the Quarter.’

 

 

Adele Elliott: Soul food

Posted 2/14/2009 in Columns

Sometimes my columns read like a catalog of events in The Golden Triangle. These are the you-had-to-be-there sort of occasions that mean little to those who did not attend. Maybe I sound like I’m bragging. But, a girl just can’t help it.

 

 

Betty Stone: Feedback offers story

Posted 2/14/2009 in Columns

I got a little feedback from my last column, something that always perks me up, even if I have ruffled somebody’s feathers. This was the good kind, though, with a follow-up story I’d like to share about the postal service “way back when.” (In fact, several people phoned with something to say about the mail service, but we have to remember that in those days there was no competition with e-mail or cheap phone calls, and there were fewer of us.)
