    Audiences love these guys, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Week after week, Ron McNeil and his bandmates go onstage and impersonate four of the most beloved, admired, documented, mythologized, scrutinized, retailed and altogether idolized men of the last century. He's only too glad that he's not actually one of...
  • City Lights: Student poetry readers impress this judge

    City Lights: Student poetry readers impress this judge
    I don't have a recording of the first poetry feature I ever gave, but part of me is glad I don't. As I recall, I was dreadful. Like any nervous undergraduate facing a big-time venue — well, Alta Coffee in Newport Beach, although it might as well...

    On Theater: 'Priscilla' is queen at Segerstrom
    If you enjoyed "La Cage aux Folles" and its cinematic offshoot, "The Birdcage," then you'll really rock out to "Priscilla Queen of the Desert," now enjoying a brief engagement at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. "Priscilla," as viewers of the 1994...

  • Anything goes at Sawdust

    Anything goes at Sawdust
    Nikki Grant never imagined being able to make a living as an artist. That changed in 1966, though, when the jewelry designer joined a cluster of Laguna Beach artists who either didn't make it into the Festival of Arts or objected to its jury system....
  • Art-A-Fair: It's a bird! It's a trademark!

    Art-A-Fair: It's a bird! It's a trademark!
    Robert Marble's signature was created almost by accident. In an effort to add a dab of color to his earlier creations, the Newport Beach resident invented a little red bird. It would attract the eye to a particular spot, he said. "If it works once,...
  • Festival of Arts: A piano (almost) for Liberace

    Festival of Arts: A piano (almost) for Liberace
    Of all the celebrities Jon Wyer Seeman has met, Liberace is his favorite. The Aliso Viejo resident was showing sculptural wood furniture at the Festival of Arts in 1985 when the pianist and "his tall, blonde boyfriend" arrived at his booth. Seeman...
  • Letters From The Editor: Staying awake through all that jazz

    My wife and I are trying to raise our daughter to appreciate the arts — not in a nose-in-the-air way, but in a manner that recognizes the importance of helping her develop both sides of the brain. We want her to know a little bit more about...
  • Liza sings for 'freedom' in Costa Mesa

    Liza sings for 'freedom' in Costa Mesa
    It's a label Liza Minnelli cherishes, and one she's never fully understood. "Gay icon." Ask her to explain it, and she'll come up empty. On Google, Minnelli's name alongside that two-word phrase cues up 117,000 results. When she performed back east...

    Classically Trained: Lang Lang makes music his own
    Lang Lang isn't a pianist to suit all tastes. I suppose no musician is, but in any case, there were a few times when he didn't suit mine last week. The 30-year-old Chinese virtuoso made a single stop in Costa Mesa on Sept. 27. He played with the Pacific...
