Terrace to 'seriously consider' live theater

The Little City Musical Theatre Company's production of The Rocky Horror Show at the Terrace Theatre proved eye-opening for owner Mike Furlinger. He was skeptical at first, but says there was a "respectable turnout," meaning about 60 people per show. "That's pretty good considering those were $35 per ticket," he says. "I'd seriously consider doing more." Already Piccolo Spoleto has approached him about hosting events at the Terrace. —John Stoehr

White cartoon trash

Award-winning cartoonist and comics creator Derf has a new graphic novel called Punk Rock and Trailer Parks. In the 1970s and '80s, punk spawned not only a music scene but an entire counterculture that transformed Akron, Ohio, into "the new Liverpool." Derf's latest tells the story of Otto, an unlikely hero who goes from the trailer park to celebrity on the punk circuit. Derf won the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Award in 2006 and his comic strip The City appears in many altweeklies, including Charleston City Paper. —Myles Hutto
