  • Superstorm Superstars

    Posted by Lori Moore

    Thanks to my brother Greg in NYC (lives in Mayor Bloomberg's neighborhood so he has power)and my dear friend Deborah Beard Bader in Boston for providing superstorm coverage this morning.  If in the unlikely event that their respective careers don't pan out, might I suggest comedy?

  • Feeling Deflated

    I like being the sweepER much better than being the sweepEE.  Still...what a GREAT season of baseball!  I had the pleasure of going to several games this summer and I have some special memories.  Thank you, Detroit Tigers!

    Thanks to Bigby Coffee on Stadium Drive for hosting the Kzoo Youth Hunger Event today. Until midnight, you can enjoy 25% off your beverages if you drop off non-perishable food items for Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes.  At midnight, area youth groups will be living outside in cardboard boxes at Lighthouse Community Church to understand the plight of the homeless.

  • A Bevy of Theatrical Offerings This Week!

    Posted by Lori Moore

    We are so fortunate to have so many great shows on area stages right now.

    Last week WKZO listeners enjoyed "3 Musketeers" at Shaw Theatre.  Ione Condit says, "We really enjoyed the show.  The kids did a great job.  Wasn't the king great? He stayed in character and 'milked' it.  We were also impressed with the choreography of the multiple fight scenes.  At one point I believe there must have been 12 people all brandishing swords at the same time." The University Theatre presentation continues this week.

    Want to cry?  Check out Farmer's Alley Theatre's extremely touching production of "Spitfire Grill".

    I'm still trying to process "The Imaginary Invalid" at The Kalamazoo Civic's Parrish Theatre. Ha!!!!!  What WAS that?  A 300 year old Moliere play set in the 1960's!  Great cast starring Ben Zylman and the stage and costumes were out of this world.

    Finally, if you like to be scared...check out the suspenseful "Woman in Black" starring Arnie Johnston at The New Vic.

    We are so lucky to have all this great theatre in Kalamazoo.  Treat yourself and see a show this week.

  • Rambling in the Woods

    Posted by Lori Moore

    Even though it was cloudy, it was such a mild evening that my cats and I went for a walk in the woods.

    I think the fall colors are the most vivid they've ever been.  Here's Gypsy surveying the scene:
