A Bozo in Love
Rick Adam, a good friend of P&J, will be in town this weekend for a couple of special shows at Perishable Theatre. A Bozo In Love is described as “a special Valentine treat . . . a great love story for grownups, in song, mime, narration, shadow mime, and who knows!” The back-story on this has to do with the true tale of Rick flying halfway around the world on a blind date. He threads in other tales of loves lost, loves found, healing and rapture.

Rick, a Pawtucket native, is a multi-talented artist who has been performing, teaching, and inspiring people of all ages for more than 25 years. He has toured everywhere, including fairs, festivals, elementary schools, colleges, and from Russia to maximum-security prisons. He has acted with the Trinity Rep and appeared in films and on television. His one-man band appeared on the PBS show The Lonesome Pine Specials.

The estimable Bob Colonna is directing these performances, which will be staged for only two nights, Friday and Saturday, February 10 and 11 at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 ($9 for students and seniors). Seating is limited, so call 888.580.5941 for reservations (do not call Perishable for tickets). Perishable is at 95 Empire Street, Providence. Go and have some fun with our pal Rick.

  •   ONWARD, CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR!  |  September 02, 2009
    It's nice to see Governor Don "Laughing Boy" Carcieri loosening up by sharing the real Donnie Boy with the people of Vo Dilun. Initially (certainly in his first campaign for governor in 2002) Don tried to come across as a moderate conservative, not unlike his immediate predecessor, Linc Almond.
  •   UNITED WE STAND  |  August 26, 2009
    With the local AFL-CIO elections coming up, Phillipe and Jorge would like to make a rare union endorsement by saying that nothing would please us more than to have George Nee, current secretary-treasurer of the organization, win his bid to take over departing Frank Montanaro's position as the organization's president.  
  •   RISD'S HOPE-LESS SITUATION  |  August 12, 2009
    On August 3 it was announced by the Rhode Island School of Design that Hope Alswang had resigned as the director of the RISD Museum. Those who have followed the coverage of this story may be somewhat confused by the revelation that absolutely everyone acknowledged that Alswang was a superlative museum director and that absolutely no one involved in the arts scene at RISD or in the state of Vo Dilun thinks that she voluntarily "resigned." It was said that she loved the job, and the vague announcement that Alswang left to "pursue other opportunities" sounds as suspicious as elected officials dropping out of election campaigns to "spend more time with their families."
  •   GUBERNATORIAL AGONISTES  |  August 05, 2009
    On Tuesday, WRNI political reporter and former Phoenix news editor and master of the Casa Diablo elbow bend, Ian Donnis, broke the news that veteran political communications specialist, Bill Fischer, head ramrod at True North Communications, had signed on as spokesman for the State Treasurer Frank Caprio's gubernatorial campaign committee.
  •   THE IQUITAROD  |  July 08, 2009
    Phillipe and Jorge wish they could claim to have coined that headline about professional loony Sarah Palin's resignation as governor of Alaska prior to her first term being completed, but full points go to Geoffrey Dunn of The Huffington Post .
