See animal portraits of endangered and extinct species at National Geographic Photo Ark exhibition

Several years ago National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore visited the Atlanta Botanical Garden where, using a simple set-up of studio lights and a white background, he took a compelling photo of Toughie, a Rabbs’ fringe-limbed tree frog native to Panama. When Toughie died in 2016, his species went extinct.

Say cheese! Museum of Selfies finds a home in Los Angeles

The Museum of Selfies made a splash earlier this year with a temporary exhibition in Glendale.

LA Opera’s ‘Don Carlo’ proves that Plácido Domingo is forever young

Long before the creation of Los Angeles Opera, LA had to rely on imports for its supply of arias, predominantly from the New York City Opera, which would perform an annual fall season at the (then relatively new) Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Music Center. In 1967, NYCO’s season included a production of “Don Rodrigo” by Alberto Ginastera, an Argentine composer. The title role was sung by a rising star of the company — a 26-year-old Spanish tenor named Plácido Domingo. How ironic that last Sat...

‘Native Gardens’ at the Pasadena Playhouse digs up feuds that at times get funny

There is a fine line between humor which skewers privilege and prejudice by making its claims sound as ridiculous as they are, and writing which pronounces the same beliefs and then does a kind of wink to indicate that, really, it was said to be funny. One is reminiscent of, say, “All in the Family,” the other is not. That the latter appears as much as the former in Karen Zacarias’ “Native Gardens,” now at the Pasadena Playhouse, make it slightly uncomfortable to call the play funny, even though...

With ‘Nikki Corona’ at LA’s Geffen, characters gain hope as audiences lose theirs

Intriguing ideas and imaginative designs capture the audience’s interest in José Rivera’s world premiere play, “The Untranslatable Secrets of Nikki Corona,” at Geffen Playhouse through Oct. 7. But theatergoers innately expect certain elements of dramatic structure, even in nontraditional plays. So, if you need to know which character the play is about, if you want the ending to relate to the beginning, if in general you like rules — because you’re someone who finds them satisfying or you’re a ri...

One bike path from the Valley through downtown LA to Long Beach? Metro hopes so

There’s good news for cyclists, and particularly those who like to ride toward downtown Los Angeles from the southeast edge of the San Fernando Valley. But you’ll have to wait until the next decade for it to become a reality. Metro is aiming to close an 8-mile cycling gap with a bike path that would take you through downtown L.A, the agency announced on its blog this week. For years, the Los Angeles River path has been incomplete, forcing cyclists to ride around the gap. Right now, one stretc...

Interview: Jesse Peterson, on Zebulon’s collectivist approach, wide-ranging fare

In the six months since it opened, Zebulon has proven the most eclectic room in Los Angeles, on one level embracing liberal tastes with its programming and on another simply serving as a hip hangout in booming Frogtown. If it were a movie theater, it’d be an art house. A dual café/lounge and 300-capacity concert hall, Zebulon has its roots in Brooklyn, where from 2003 to ’12 it was a hole-in-the-wall venue for experimental music and outsider indie rock. As the Williamsburg neighborhood changed, ...

Salazar, Los Angeles

One of my greatest joys in life is to discover a city little by little. With a place as big as Los Angeles, the task can sometimes be a little daunting, so I just do it step by step. I’ve come up with a great exploration method: select a few different eateries in each area and basically eat my way through town. Hopefully by the end of my first year here, I will be fully acquainted with various areas and also perhaps morbidly obese. I live in Silverlake now which is essentially an endless succ...

HDTGM: A Conversation with Randall Frakes, Writer/Producer of ‘Hell Comes to Frogtown’

In 1978, a pair of young, wannabe filmmakers made a 12-minute, 35mm short called Xenogenesis. One of those wannabes was a visionary artist by the name of James Cameron. The other—who Cameron calls “the best kept secret in Hollywood”—was a precocious storyteller by the name of Randall Frakes.  Over the following four decades, the two have collaborated on several projects. But one project that did not collaborate on—though they came close to doing so—was a subversive, sci-fi B-movie called Hell C...

9 secret spots in Los Angeles

1. The secret world of L.A.’s speakeasies Photo: The Edison Like all great cities, L.A. has a hidden side, an underbelly that goes largely unnoticed by workday folks going about their business but that’s nonetheless ever present. It’s always been this way. There have always been secret passages, secret passwords, and dark places where drinks are served and deals are done. But you don’t have to be a Prohibition-era gangster to sip scotch at a finished hardwood bar. Just hunt down one of L.A.’...

PR Girls We Love: Meet Sarah Jenkins, Owner of White Oak Communications

After several years honing her craft in entertainment and culinary PR, including a stint as Account Director at Bread + Butter, Los Angeles-based Sarah Jenkins made the leap to go out on her own. First known as Salt + PR (an homage to her restaurant clientele and love of the beach), a trademark issue required a quick rebrand. A true blessing in disguise, Sarah transformed both the name of her company and branding to attract a more luxury clientele in a variety of verticals. These days, the Whit...
