Re: “Uncle Sam’s River Dance

As Guerneville residents we try to support our community. We set up our packed in chairs and bought 2 chicken sandwiches for $28.00. Then spent $14.00 for a beer and a very tiny glass of wine served from a box. As a dj boomed his music from one side of tbe street the amps on the laser stage competed with music of their own. We waited for something spectacular or even just patriotic to happen. We reluctantly picked up our chairs and joined the multitudes of families fleeing what whas evolving into a block party rave.There was absolutely nothing "4th of July" about the whole thing. Very Disappointed.

Re: “Judge Brad Seligman Lecture: Big Law, Small Law: Old & New Civil Rights in the 21st Century

Judicial temperament - none!
Brad Seligman turned family court into a forum for reckless witch hunts against parties. He acted like a king, not a judge. Ironically, this purported crusader for civil rights trampled on constitutions protections for individuals left, right and center. Power corrupts. I am glad to see him out of family courts.

Judge Seligman is a myopic civil rights attorney poorly disguised as a judgel. His desire to implement his civil rights politics into the framework of family law is unethical and in complete disregard for written and tested family law. He should be removed from the bench immediately.

Re: “Viva Cuba

If there were a negative star rating, this "performance" merits it. It is a ridiculous ensemble of (mostly) untalented singers and...we'll call them dancers. I think my 8-year-old and slumber party friends would have come up with better dialogue and dance moves. At one point I thought I was watching an aerobics class. They looked to each other for cues, were constantly out of synch and not centered on the stage, and one guy was even chewing gum as he danced! Come on now...these are the basics, no need to go to Juilliard to know this. The lyrics were banal and a constant overkill of the introductory message relayed to the audience on an old-fashioned film screen in the far background. Perhaps the props and stage were going for the minimalist look, but it felt more like we were at the first day of rehearsal than opening night. From the lack or originality in the costumes and set design (there was none), to the disconnected music which sounded like nothing you'd associate with Cuba, and all of the non-latino people declaring proudly that "they are the spirit of the cuban people," it was the most surprising theatrical disappointment I've ever had, even for what one is expecting in community theatre. Another poignant example of the pain: At one point there was a song addressing the shift from capitalism to communism and the analogy was conveyed Sesame Street-style by replacing the M in Me with a W for We...and the melody to match. Wow, really? Two of the main vocalists had pleasant, very powerful and melodic voices with much potential, but require voice training to completely master their god-given talent. At least there was that. The musical would have been much better if they got rid of the singing and dancing and just stuck to the documentary on the screen with the narrator. There were issues there, too, but I'll stop here.
