Show bares the truth under the surface

An all-female cast of unclothed performers use theater, dance, cabaret, burlesque and abundant humor in an exploration of gender politics.

Young Jean Lee's Theater Company makes its fourth appearance with “Untitled Feminist Show,” yet another demonstration of the company's subversive style and acerbic wit.

A co-presentation of the Warhol's Off the Wall series and the New Hazlett Theater, where the show will be performed, the company of six female performers invites the audience to join them on an irreverent, nearly wordless celebration of the fluidity and limitless possibilities of identity.

Warning: the show contains adult subject matter, and performers are nude throughout the performance.

The show starts at 8 p.m. March 30. Admission is $25; $20 for students

‘Horns for Africa' collects unwanted brass

James Gourlay is dealing with brass instruments in a different way than he usually does as general director of River City Brass.

In his “Horns for Africa” program, he is collecting unwanted brass instruments to help John Mpandi, who is putting together a brass band in Uganda to give young people a constructive activity.

“Even if you don't want to be a musician professionally, music is something that lets you say, ‘There, I can do that,' ” Gourlay says.

He says the band will supply receipts for instruments so donors can get tax benefits for the gift.
