Dottie-ance Participation | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Dottie-ance Participation



We'll be running a full review in the dead-tree edition of City Weekly at a later date, but in the meantime, attendees at Pygmalion Productions' run of The Passion of Sister Dottie S. Dixon be warned: The front rows are not for the timid.

Sister Dottie (Charles Lynn Frost), it turns out, is a very friendly sort -- so friendly that she spends some of the show asking questions of the audience, handing them "props" (in one case a pantomimed infant), and perhaps even inviting folks up to the stage to participate in an impromptu lesson in how to speak Spanish (Fork). The tickets are general admission, so those who don't mind joining in the fun themselves can choose to plunk themselves down front. And those who prefer simply to observe should consider the nosebleed seats.
