Review: Rivertown stages Guys and Dolls
The classic musical runs Sept. 21-24 Guys and Dolls is a caricature of New York City circa 1931, overrun with shady gamblers, cutesy chorus girls and Irish cops. Despite scenes set in alleys, garages, nightclubs and the Save-a-Soul mission, Guys and Dolls is essentially a sweet love story about opposites who attract.…

Review: the power of objects in Ephemera Obscura
Mixed-media works by local artists at the CAC The newly renovated Contemporary Arts Center looks more polished than ever, so it may come as a surprise that the lobby gallery currently resembles a vast curiosity cabi- net — or maybe the most meticulous estate sale ever. But a T.S. Eliot quote in Aaron Levi Garvey's curator statement explains everything: "It is only in the world of objects that we have time and space and selves."…

Music for Mental Health concert brings storytelling and songs to destigmatize mental illness
As part of National Suicide Prevention Month, several New Orleans songwriters have banded together for an intimate performance with a focus on mental health to end stigma surrounding mental illness — with musicians as a medium for discussion. The inaugural Music for Mental Health: An Evening of Song and Discussion on Sept. 22 sidesteps the silos in which people typically discuss mental health and centers it among five artists trading stories and songs in a stripped-down, candid storytelling performance.

"One of the best ways of doing that is music.…

Jimmy Kimmel: 'Bill Cassidy just lied right to my face'

U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy got lots of publicity in the last few months for saying any GOP health care plan would have to pass the "Jimmy Kimmel test" — a term he coined after talking with the late night talk show host, whose son needed open-heart surgery shortly after birth. Cassidy, a physician, promised Kimmel and others that any Republican replacement for the Affordable Care Act would include coverage for all; no discrimination for pre-existing conditions; lower premiums for families; and no lifetime caps on coverage.

The new Graham-Cassidy health care bill, unveiled this week, does none of these things, as many medical groups have pointed out — as have Gov. John Bel Edwards and Louisiana Health Secretary Rebekah Gee, who wrote letters objecting to the proposed legislation.…
