  Theatre PReview: Rock me AmadeusPDF files may take a moment to load

With the downfall of popular culture it's no surprise the majority of music today is performed by little boys in black t-shirts and baggy pants. What happened to the good ol' days when showmanship--eyeliner doesn't count--really meant something? What happened to tiger-skin trousers and three foot high pink wigs? No, this isn't referring to the arena rock bands of the '70s but the performers of the baroque era. As it happens, so is Alberta Theatre Project's artistic director Bob White.

Bono, dubbed by fans a benevolent Messiah, is the lead singer of the popular band U2, and a self-serving ass hat. Bono's throngs of squealing 40- year-old women will be quick to point out that he's done an enormous amount of charity work for many admirable causes, among these the struggle against poverty in Africa. No one is going to deny that Bono has done a buttload of charity concerts, but the thing no one seems to notice is that every single one of these well-publicized tragedies coincides with U2's latest album release.

The Mushroom Kingdom palace's walls glow with kitsch testament to the legend, but you will find the man at its centre curiously vacant.
