I Saw You: What Are You, My Therapist?


It was nice to get an invite to your place after not seeing you for a few months. You’re my favorite brother—at least that’s the impression the rest of the family has—and I’d had the uneasy feeling that we were falling out of touch, even though you only live about an hour… » Read More

The Ten Tenors at Campbell Heritage Theatre

TENOR SO: Double digit tenor group Ten Tenors tackles timely tunes.

It’s both an alliterative masterpiece and a musical extravaganza. Hailing from Australia, the Ten Tenors—none of whom are named Pavarotti or Domingo—have been performing worldwide for more than 20 years.

IDOL HANDS: American Idol and Postmodern Jukebox star (and homegrown talent) DeAndre Brackensick comes to Art Boutiki.

Though it may not feel like it, winter is coming. And in San Jose, that means ice skating under the Circle of Palms, next to the San Jose Museum of Art.

‘Chicago’ at San Jose Center for the Performing Arts

RAZZLE DAZZLE: Broadway San Jose brings the tale of betrayal & feminine revenge to the CPA.

Broadway San Jose hosts six performances (over four days) of the celebrated crime-and-dames musical Chicago, which first burst out of Broadway back in 1975.

‘Autopiloto’ Live-Streams the Self-Drive

AUTO MOBILE: Radio EE explores our Asimovian future in an online program about self-driving cars.

So, this is kind of … different. A collective of artists known as RadioEE, in association with the Montalvo Arts Center, will be broadcasting a live transmission from a semi-autonomous vehicle (self-driving car) as it cruises around the Bay Area over the course of two days. Narration in English, Spanish and Vietnamese… » Read More
