The Birth of the Birth of Merlin

Tonight's the night! Jeffrey Scott Holland's adaptation of William Shakespeare's apocryphal Birth of Merlin is finally making its stage debut in NYC! Although flash photography is not permitted, flashless photography *is* allowed - so if you attend and take pics, we'd love to see them!

Безымянная звезда

Can-Can dancers, Soviet style. This clip is supposedly from the Russian film A Nameless Star (starring Anastasiya Vertinskaya) but looks much older. It's only nineteen seconds long but it's a real Georgiyevsk gem, and it's got that indefinable Voraxica quality.
