Review-The Maids- RyeT Entertainment9-11-13

The Maids by Jean Genet explores class conflict, sibling rivalry and suppressed sexuality played out through the fantasy, or play—in both senses of the word—of two sisters, Claire and Solange who are maids to the generically named “Madame.” To escape the aridity and confinement of their lives Claire and Solange play, in Madame’s absence, the multiple roles of each other and their employer.

Review-Tom Rhodes-Comedy.hk2-11-13

This is my first time writing a review for standup. It's not an easy thing to do. Standup Comedy is a truly subjective art form. What works for me as an audience member can totally fail for the person next to me and what works for the four guys in the row in the back may not work for me.

Everyone well knows that while most efforts in mixing Eastern and Western elements do birth something new, it’s not always a guaranteed success.

Yes, sometimes it's interesting but sometimes it's downright horrifying. (No matter what anyone says kimchi burgers are a bad idea.)

Review- Persona Marilyn- LCSD26-10-13

If you’ve had a hard week at work, Persona. Marilyn is not advisable as Friday night entertainment. Luckily I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.

Preview-Shakespeare in the Port25-10-13

Popcorn and jugglers, bring-your-own-picnic-blanket, and *drumroll* outdoor Shakespeare. If you, like me, have spent years drooling over stories of New York’s Shakespeare in the Park and lamenting that you live in Hong Kong, your time has come.
