Hey you cats, listen up. I saw a show at Circa ’21 that’s hoppin’ and swingin’ – like being inside a jukebox. Smokey Joe’s Café is where all the cool Daddy-O’s and neighborhood gals are dancing to music from the days of the zoot suit up to 1960s love songs. If you’re expecting a plot line, a bit of spoken dialogue, you kids won’t get it. This musical revue is purely fun. It involves no setup or explanation, and simply celebrates music from days gone by.

With bright, rainbow wardrobes and electric intensity, the 12-person Opera @ Augustana ensemble of Godspell resembled a contemporary (and Christian) version of Hair. The vibrant student actors last weekend filled Wallenberg Hall at Augustana College with the spirit of music and tromped about the stage praising God and engaging hundreds of audience members with optimistic songs.

Galileo Galilei was a big man who loved eating. Oh yeah, and he’s also credited with inventing the telescope and proving the earth rotates around the sun (not vice-versa), and he’s considered one of the scientific geniuses of the Renaissance.
