A Mad Dash towards FoolMoon + FestiFools 2012

Without a moment to spare, here’s my annual, behind-the-scenes sneak-peek at the making of Ann Arbor’s Weekend of Foolishness. The weekend kicks off with tomorrow evening’s FoolMoon, which debuted last year (FoolMoon 2011) and instantly took its rightful place in the pantheon of not-to-be-missed happenings in Ann Arbor. FestiFools “occupies”...

Marching towards FoolMoon + FestiFools 2011

Without a moment to spare — I mean, a weekend of Foolishness kicks off TOMORROW NIGHT! — I am finally ready to unveil my annual, behind-the-scenes sneak-peek at the making of FestiFools. Given that FestiFools is now celebrating its fifth anniversary, our Foolish friends have seen fit keep the Foolish...

President Obama @ UM Commencement 2010

Photographing the UM commencement on Saturday, May 1 was an exhilarating, mind-expanding experience. For starters, before that day I’d never so much as set foot inside the Big House (weird, I know). And, to the best of my knowledge, I’d never been within a nautical mile of Barack Obama (or...

Marching towards FestiFools 2010

Only four more days till FestiFools! U-M students and community volunteers have been hard at work the past few months creating HUGE PUPPETS that will make their FestiFools debut this Sunday — for just one unabashedly giddy, pedal-to-the-metal, take-no-prisoners hour. And you — yeah, I’m talking to YOU — really,...

Pioneer Theatre Guild: Willy Wonka

Just as the golden ticket winners couldn’t wait to get inside Wonka’s factory, I couldn’t wait to see the opening night of the Pioneer Theatre Guild’s production of “Roald Dalh’s Willy Wonka.” Pioneer was selected to prototype and fine-tune (a process known as “workshopping”) a new stage adaptation of Charlie and...

FestiFools 2008

Wow! FestiFools 2008 was completely, totally, utterly, absolutely, wicked awesome! Giant puppets marauding on Main Street; throngs of volunteers and spectators jumping, dancing, clapping, and shouting “Wahoo!”; Groove beating on buckets and ladders; clowns and music-makers clowning and making music (respectively); Zoltan posing mind-boggling koans; lots of happy faces; plenty...

Marching towards FestiFools 2008

The 2nd FestiFools Parade is coming around faster than you can get dishpan hands from working with papier-mâché (which, trust me, is pretty fast). On Sunday, April 6 from 4–5pm, giant, fanciful puppets (and foolish co-conspirators) will once again descend upon downtown Ann Arbor, and dance like there’s no tomorrow....
