Fall Revue succeeds

It appears that “The Fall Revue: A Musical Revue in Narrative” presented by Curtain Call has far exceeded expectation. Based on the success of performances put on by the then-called “Up Stage’em,” the prospect that this show would be a winner was doubtful.

Within the next couple of months, there will be many great shows to choose from. Brandon Flowers is coming to the Showbox...

You heard right, Loggers: the zany Nick Jr. kids’ show Yo Gabba Gabba! is coming to the Tacoma Dome on Nov. 13. Some of you may be saying to yourselves, “Yo Gabba...
