The satanic verses
Artist and novelist Kurtz explores his interest in the unusual in new show

In the seven years
that Kurtz has been a
professional artist, he
has spent a good deal of
time exploring worlds
that often go unseen: the
worlds of prostitutes,
drug addicts and the

Kurtz, who calls him-
self "reverend," has
spoken extensively to
churches about modern
Satanism. It's little won-
der, then, that Kurtz has
published books with
titles like "The Little
Satanist: The World's
First Satanic Bedtime
Story" — and yes, it's for children.
His latest, however, targets an adult audience.
"Kill Your God" is his novel about a Christian
street minister who has an awakening that opens
him to an alternative view of the world.
Kurtz will hold the 12th exhibit of a wide

Think A Few Good Men are hard to find? Not when the homoerotic tour
Dancin' bullies its way into North Texas this weekend
By Arnold Wayne Jones Staff Writer
Ever since Michael Flatley riverdanced his
way onto the stages of the world with his Irish
clogging, the market for large, athletic, globetrot-
ting casts dancing away with box office gold has
been insatiable: "Stomp," "Tap Dogs," "Burn the
Floor" ... the list goes on.
But of all of them, few seem — or sound —
quite so homoerotic as "A Few Good Men ...
Dancin'." Maybe it's the "don't ask, don't tell"
mystique of a name that suggests Marines who
know how to pile and entrechat. Maybe it's the
advertisements, which show ripped, shirtless,
sweaty men leaping through the air. Or maybe
it's the Chippendales Effect: A dance troupe
made up of 10 men, all with experience in ballet
and modern dance, hardly sounds like a bastion
(Naturally, it helps cultivate the queer appeal
knowing that at least one of the cast members —
Dorrell Martin — is openly gay.)
Whatever the reason, there's no denying the
appeal of a show that includes a wide range of
dance styles set to a panorama of music, most
performed with acrobatic skill that rivals Cirque
The formula seems to be working. The brain-
child of choreographer Jeff Amsden (who has

Michael Kidd, and who once dated Paula Abdul),
