Megan K. Photography

Exploring the work of one of SLC's premiere event photographers
Sometimes when you see a live event online, the photo just doesn't do the experience justice. Trust me, I know; I take plenty with my phone, and I read your comments.

Waterpocket Distillery

Exploring the soon-to-open West Valley City distillery.
We're going to be getting something really cool in the state when Waterpocket Distillery opens soon.

Pygmalion Productions: Silent Sky

The director and a couple actresses discuss Pygmalion's season finale.
Pygmalion Productions ends their season on a high note with the semi-biographical play Silent Sky  (April 28 - May 13). The production focuses on Henrietta Leavitt, one of Harvard's woman "computers" from the early 20th century, and the pioneering work she did in astronomy at the university as she struggled to get recognition in a male-dominated field. Today we chat with director Mark Fossen, as well as actresses Brenda Hattingh and Hannah Minshew, about the play and their time working on it before the show opens at the Rose Wagner Center.

Geek Therapist

Finding pop-culture comfort through the nerdy therapy podcast
It doesn't matter who you are: Sometimes you need a small voice of reason around to look at things objectively. But sometimes, your average therapist just isn't good enough, and you need someone specific who just "gets" you.

April Gallery Stroll: Heidi Gress

A chat with the SLC photographer about her latest exhibition at Nostalgia Cafe
After having most of the week bombarded by rain and weather that felt more like winter than spring—even with the sun out—we got a few moments of relief on Friday night during the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. It was an interesting night of weird group shows, and an awkward goodbye to CUAC, but there were some cool solo shows in the mix.

The Sugar Space: Suite Space

Three choreographers chat with us before the show happening April 28-29.
It may be the end of the performing arts season for several companies, but there are spaces where works are being produced year-round by talent you didn't even know existed in Utah. Next week on April 28 at the Sugar Space Arts Warehouse, three student choreographers from the University of Utah present a two-night performance of original works (along with music from the Will Baxter Band, Casey Van Portfleet and some surprise musical guests) in a show called Suite Space.
