‘It’s a profession that rotates in your brain’

Uncensored talk from Hollywood legend Tony Curtis

by Lawrence Cosentino
The diction of a thug, the soul of a poet and a complete lack of inhibition were three of the most charming things about actor Tony Curtis, who died Thursday. Back in 2002, Curtis came to East Lansing to perform in a musical version of his classic film, “Some Like it Hot.” The extrovert’s extrovert, Curtis said way more than we could fit into the story at the time, but now his passing Thursday at age 85 seems like a good time to uncork some heady Hollywood hooch.

Body and soul

Tierney Sutton Band pleases flesh, spirit

by Lawrence Cosentino
“Here I am, I’m a performer, I go out there and sing. I try to get on the treadmill so I look OK. Why doesn’t anybody hit on me?” But that’s how the sultry, silken-tressed singer wants it.

It’s even better than speed reading: LCC offers ’Complete’ compendium

by Chris Galford

Ticking into the future

MSU's 'American Clock' is an often striking look at the 1930s

by Paul Wozniak
As our current recession seems to be winding down, the Michigan State University Department of Theatre has wound up "The American Clock" by Arthur Miller. As Miller’s "Death of a Salesman" is an intense close-up of a troubled man, "Clock" is an expansive wide shot of a troubled nation struggling through the Great Depression. However, director Tony Caselli (artistic director of Williamston Theatre) proves that with the right music, even a disjointed series of vignettes can be turned into a cohesive anthem.
