ARIES March 21-April 19 Author Valerie Andrews reminds us that as children, we all had the magical capacity to see the land as an animal does to experience the sky from the perspective of a flower or a bee to feel the earth quiver and breathe beneath us to know a hundred different smells of mud and listen unselfconsciously to the soughing of the trees. Oh, how I would love you to be able to recover even a fraction of those talents in the coming days. My reading of the current astrological potentials tells me that your chances of doing so are much better than usual. Your ability to connect with the eternal child and wise animal within you is at a peak.TAURUS April 20-May 20Taurus singer Barbara Streisand has a shopping mall built below her large home. Its purpose isnt to sell consumer goods to strangers but rather to stash her precious belongings and show them off when friends come over. Among the storefronts are an antique store, doll shop, costume shop, and candy store. The coming weeks would be an excellent time for you to start building a shopping mall beneath your home, too, Taurus. If thats too expensive or complicated, here are alternatives: 1. Revitalize your appreciation for your treasured possessions. 2. Acquire a new treasured possession or two that will inspire you to love your life even more than you already do. 3. Reacquaint yourself with the spiritual powers that your treasured possessions arouse in you. GEMINI May 21-June 20The Dalai Lama says there are core similarities between science and Buddhism. Both keep searching for ever-more complete versions of the truth. Both employ firsthand observation and experimentation to do that noble work. If they find new information that contradicts previously held versions of the truth, both are willing to discard them. Now that you Geminis are entering the Deep Questioning Phase of your astrological cycle, Id love you to make generous use of the Buddhist/Scientific approach. More complete versions of the truth will be available in abundance in the coming weeksif youre alert for them.CANCER June 21-July 22 Cancerian artist Artemisia Gentileschi 15931656 achieved the impossible: She became a supremely skilled and renowned painter in an era when women had virtually no opportunities to become artists. Many aspects of her work distinguished her from other painters. For example, she depicted women as having strong, agile hands and arms. In Artemisias world, the power of womens wrists, forearms, and fingers signifies their ability to put their mark upon the world, to accomplish strenuous practical tasks with grace and flair. If I were going to paint images of you in the coming weeks, I would also portray you as having strong, agile hands and arms. I suspect youll have potent agency to get things doneto adeptly manipulate the material world to serve your ideals. Thoughts about Artemisias hands come from art historian Mary D. Garrard.LEO July 23-Aug. 22Once upon a time: Thats your phrase of power these days. What do I mean by that Im suggesting that you will strengthen your problem-solving abilities by engaging in playful pretending for the sheer fun of it. Im predicting that you will boost your confidence by dreaming up amusing magical stories in which you endure heroic tests and achieve epic feats. And Im proposing that you will fine-tune your ability to accomplish practical feats if you regard your robust imagination as crucial to your success.VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22Virgo singer-songwriter Fiona Apple says shes not religious. On the other hand, she regularly kneels on the ground and announces to whatever great power might be listening, Thank you for my problems, and I send my love everywhere. Shes sincere. She regards her sadness and her challenges as being equally important to her happiness and success. The difficulties teach her what she didnt even realize she needed to know, and make her appreciate the good times more intensely. I suggest you borrow from her approach right now.LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22Nobel Prize-winning author Albert Camus wrote, Great feelings bring with them their own universewhich he said may either be degraded or splendid, selfish or generous. I love that he allowed for the possibility that great feelings could be positive and noble. So many renowned thinkers focus on negative and ignoble states of mind. In accordance with current astrological potentials, Libra, your task is to cultivate feelings that are splendid and generous. These sentiments should exalt you, uplift you, and empower you to spread transformative benevolence to those whose lives you touch.SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21How can you hold on to something that wont hold still asked Scorpio poet Benjamin Fondane. In general, you Scorpios have more talent than every other sign of the zodiac at doing just that: corralling wiggly, slippery things and making them work for you. And I expect this skill will be especially in play for you during the coming weeks. Your grasp on the elusive assets wont ever be perfect, but it will be sufficiently effective to accomplish small wonders.SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21Sagittarian Calvin Trillin is a witty writer with a good imagination and a flair for inventive language. But back in school, he confesses, Math was always my bad subject. I couldnt convince my teachers that many of my answers were meant ironically. You Sagittarians are authorized by the cosmic powers-that-be to borrow your style and attitude from Trillin in the coming weeks. So you shouldnt be fixated on mathematical precision and fastidious logic your task is not to be conceptually impeccable and scrupulously sensible. Rather, you have a license to be extra lyrical and lush and rhapsodic and humorous and irrepressible.CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19In 2011, an eBay seller produced a 19th-century photo that he said proved Capricorn actor Nicholas Cage is a time-traveling vampire. Although the character in the image did indeed resemble the Oscar-winning star, he rejected the theory, and emphatically declared that he is not a time-traveling vampire. Maybe that all sounds absurd, but I must tell you that you may soon have to deal with peoples equally inaccurate and off-kilter theories about you. My advice: Dont take it personally. Simply correct others misimpressions and rely solely on yourself for definitive ideas about who you are.AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18Ive assembled excerpts of love poems for your inspiration. Why Because youre entering the Intensified Intimacy Phase of your astrological cycle. Consider using the following riffs as inspiration when you interact with loved ones. 1. I profess the religion of love its the belief, the faith I keep. 2. Holding your hand, I can hear your bones singing into mine and feel the moon as it rolls through you. 3. Raw light spills from your eyes, utterly naked, awakening an intoxicating shimmer of adventure. 4. I ask you please to speak to me forever. Poem fragments are from Ibn Arabi, Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi, Herman Hesse, Sara Eliza Johnson, Alejandra Pizarnik.PISCES Feb. 19-March 20 An Australian witch named Michelle Clinton praises the joys of a moon garden. It features flowers and plants that reveal their full beauty after dark. Among the flowers that bloom at night are evening primrose, angels trumpet, and Dutchmans pipe cactus. As for the flowers whose aromas are most potent after the sun sets: night-blooming jasmine, garden heliotrope, and honeysuckle. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you will have resemblances to a moon garden in the near future, Pisces. Be alert for opportunities to glow and grow in the dark.

Expressionist Theater

In Richmond Triangle Players The Pink Unicorn, a local director brings her personal experience to a transgender story. When her daughter comes out as gender queer, Trisha Lees whole world is turned upside down in the Richmond Triangle Players production of The Pink Unicorn, opening this weekend at the Robert B. Moss Theatre. Theres a lack of understanding and anytime a person doesnt understand something, you know, they automatically have all of these walls up, explains actress Marie Lucas, who plays Lee in this production. The play is based in part on the experience of playwright Elsie Forier Edie, whose personal struggles with her childs gender identity inform those of the main character, a widow and mother from a small Texas town. Lucas says Lees journey is one of acceptance, of learning how to truly support her child who also wants to start a chapter of the Gay-Straight Alliance at their small-town high school. Trisha Lee is thinking shes loving her child the right way all of these years, Lucas says, and then suddenly, she really needs to rethink the way that she loves her child. Director Raja Benz says the script, a solo piece in which an actress addresses the audience to tell her story, runs the risk of coming across like shes just monologuing at you.I didnt want it to be this thing where the audience gets talked at for 90 minutes, Benz says. But most importantly, what stood out to me is that this was a story about transgender people that didnt have transgender people onstage. As a transgender theater artist in Richmond, Benz says its important for her to ensure that voice is as prominent in this piece as possible. I am definitely a bit of an expressionist, in that I make theater that happens in a room that acknowledges that its happening live. Im always thinking, How can I tell this story with more than one sense, with all my senses And challenging what it means to tell the story.Audiences can expect to see Benz and Lucas pushing the boundaries of storytelling in multiple ways and using theatrical elements, specifically calling on expressionist techniques to expand the scope of the story as it reads on the page. Lucas says the best part of her job is getting to step in and out of multiple characters. As an actor, its been really great to get to dip my toes into other characters that are so different from Trisha Lee, Lucas explains. It kind of goes in with the theme of gender fluidity, when you get to play men. I get to play boys, like I get to play a tomboy that I used to be when I was a child. Things like that have come up. While embodying Trisha Lee, Lucas finds herself reflecting on something Tawnya Pettiford-Wates used to say back when she was a Virginia Commonwealth University theater student: The story is more important than you.That has really resonated for me with this play, Lucas says. This story is so beautiful and so important. I cry every time we run through the show. In spite of what might sound like criticism of the script, Benz says she has the utmost respect for this story and for this playwright. I dont know if Im critical of the piece per se. I just have a lot to add to this conversation, as somebody who has lived experience in this area, Benz says. And thats the thing that I think goes missing when we write trans stories without trans characters being present: We miss out on that perspective.Richmond Triangle Players The Pink Unicorn runs from July 30 through Aug. 15 at the Robert B. Moss Theatre. Tickets cost $10 - $30. rtriangle.org.

A Triumphant Return
07/20/2021 12:00am

The Richmond Shakespeare Festival returns to Agecroft Hall with a pair of outdoor comedies. Having really missed the Richmond Shakespeare Festival last year, it was with bleary-eyed elation that I returned to Agecroft Hall to picnic on the lawn before a pair of recent shows.This years festival marks Quill Theatre Companys grand return to the stage post-pandemic and, appropriately, the festival is all comedy. Audiences can bring lawn chairs and blankets and flop onto the lawn to enjoy Twelfth Night and The Bottom Show in repertory, two shows that are well worth the wait. Twelfth Night is a comedy of mistaken identity with a pair of shipwrecked twins and some good old Shakespearean crossdressing at the center of all the confusion. Jan Powells direction keeps the action lively, fast-paced and funny. The 1960s setting, telegraphed through music and costume references, is a fun choice. I especially enjoyed Anna Bialkowskis costumes, each seeming to pay homage to a different 60s aesthetic: Some characters are mod, theres a silly Laugh-In style hippie, a spiritual Beatles-style hippie, while another character dresses in beatnik attire. Though the costumes and musical numbers are a lot of fun, the 60s-era needle drops can sometimes feel gimmicky, particularly since there doesnt seem to be much of a reason behind this directorial choice beyond the obvious resonance with the spirit of the era in the plays first line: If music be the food of love, play on. The Bottom Show is a short play composed of all of the rude mechanical scenes from A Midsummer Nights Dream, in which Bottom and his troupe rehearse and perform Pyramus and Thisbe, the famous play-within-a-play. This show would have been performed by amateur actors at a time when theater was banned in England, as it was short enough for actors and audience to disband before getting caught. As such it is a testament to the need for theater as an art form, the persistent human urge to perform art and to spectate which feels poignant for theater-goers and practitioners alike in 2021. Director James Ricks keeps this production short enough to present it without an intermission while taking a little time to pad the story with fun song-and-dance sequences that feel tonally relevant and celebratory. In particular, Levi Meerovichs accordion rendition of Bad Romance stands out. Meerovich also serves as musical director for both shows. Nearly all cast members are filling multiple roles and audiences who come to both shows have a chance to see each of these actors displaying their range. Emily Berry is noteworthy as the cross-dressing Viola in Twelfth Night, but its her hilarious performance as Puck in The Bottom Show that takes the cake. Kurt Benjamin Smith is a standout, playing the dimwitted Andrew Agucheek in Twelfth Night and the titular Bottom. Michelle Greensmith channels Liza Minelli as Olivia in Twelfth Night and transforms completely to give us a sniveling, scene-stealingly funny Starveling in The Bottom Show. Michael Blackwater juggles masculine and feminine energies as Duke Orsino in Twelfth Night and the Fairy Queen Titania in The Bottom Show. Mitchell Ashe is dashing as Sebastian and Cole Metz shines as Malvolio, both in Twelfth Night. Lucretia Marie is my favorite version of Oberon to date in The Bottom Show, and I loved the chemistry between Erica Hughes and Foster Solomon as Maria and Toby Belc respectively in Twelfth Night. Lennon Hus musical accompaniment during The Bottom Show was also great, adding a modern flair to the production with recognizable pop and rock riffs and motifs. The pre-show antics of the Festival Young Company are also a thoroughly enjoyable part of the experience. From the young actors to the veteran performers, from the tech crew to the ushers, everyone at Agecroft Hall is earnestly glad to be back, including the audience. It feels great to be back even if things do still look a bit different. Lawn seating means its easy for audience members to socially distance and it also means you dont have to wait for intermission to sneak away to the Garden Grove Brewery table to grab another beer or to the King of Pops stand for a sweet treat to enjoy as the plot thickens onstage. In my humble opinion the lawn seating, more relaxed and a bit more casual than the risers of festivals past, is an improvement. But its the same festival Richmond audiences have known and loved for years and its a wonderful way to celebrate the fact that we can all gather in a field and watch a play together again. The 2021 Richmond Shakespeare Festival runs through Aug. 15 at Agecroft Hall. Tickets cost $20-$33. agecrofthall.org/richmondshakespeare.

To Have and To Hold

Wrestling returns to Richmond with UEWs Resurrection. Before Kris Keith can even remember, hes loved wrestling.Growing up in the small Southwestern Virginia town of Marion, Keith was often babysat by a woman with eight children while his own mother worked.The entire family loved wrestling, recalls Keith, who wrestles under the name Double K. It was always on, and they were building their own little makeshift rings in the backyard out of steel rods, kite string, and we would put socks in pillowcases to build our turnbuckles.In a way, Keith is now attempting to do the same thing on a grander scale. In 2019, Keith launched United Elite Wrestling, a homegrown wrestling promotion that aims to bring wrestlers from across the mid-Atlantic region together for some high-flying action. On July 23, UEW will hold Resurrection, its first live event since the pandemic started.Keith first started training to become a wrestler in 2011 while working full-time as a golf pro. Though he enjoyed it, he didnt feel he could devote the time and energy required of wrestling. In 2018 he started a podcast called Wrestle Rewind that offered commentary on Virginias wrestling scene.The podcast led him to get back in the ring and found UEW, which held its first show, Got Your Six, in November 2019. The following February saw Boiling Point, UEWs second show, which attracted more than 300 people.The wrestling promotion canceled the rest of its planned live shows because of the pandemic, but filmed matches for audiences to watch at home and continued the storylines of its wrestlers through social media. Now live wrestling is ready to return to Richmond.Among those performing at the July 23 event will be Rhett Titus, a professional wrestler with major promotion Ring of Honor. Titus, whos one half of its current world tag team champions, has committed to three of the next four UEW events and will take on the promotions heavyweight champion, Sledge Gibson, on July 23.Hes going to be around. Hes not a one-off thing. Hes a part of what were doing, says Keith, who will participate in a tag-team match.For those who dont watch wrestling, Keith says the key to a good show is the storytelling and following which wrestlers have longstanding grudges against one another.If wrestling is done correctly, then youre actually telling a story with each and every match thats out there, says the 43-year-old. As a kid and still to this day if its done correctly, it pulls me right in. One of the major storylines in this match pits Supreme Truth Timmy Danger against Eddie Diamond.These guys have a long history together, and not necessarily a bad one. These guys were in Ohio Valley Wrestling together at one point. They had been friends, Keith says. Timmy Danger has promised a mercy killing of Eddie Diamond, so that match is going to be a last man standing match.Danger, aka Tim Stewart, says that he and Diamond go way back, but its time for Diamond to leave wrestling.Hes honestly one of the best wrestlers to come out of Virginia, Stewart says. In the last couple years his stocks kind of fallen off, and mines been on the rise. Im going to put a mercy killing on his career. Its time for him to walk out and end now, and who better to end his career than meAs for the other wrestlers, Stewart is complimentary: Everyone in the show is solid, good talent. Theres no scrubs. I think youre going to see a great night of action. United Elite Wrestlings Resurrection takes place July 23 at the River City Sports & Social Club Annex at 7505 Ranco Road. Tickets cost $15 in advance and $20 at the door. For information, visit United Elite Wrestlings Facebook page.
