Producers at the Utah Children’s Theatre are aiming the company’s annual Shakespeare festival to the rest of us — that is, kids and adults with short attention spans. That caveat is branded in the festival’s name. The company takes seriously the notion of inviting its audiences to enjoy Shakespeare’s timeless stories, albeit streamlined for a digital-addled age. Kids, no matter how much they love their digital screens, are more engaged when they wa...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Part of it has to do with an architectural study, released last week, that attached a hefty price tag to fixing the beloved-but-dilapidated Utah Theatre on downtown Salt Lake City’s Main Street and building the multi-purpose film center around it. Theater restoration alone would cost $36 million to $42 million, depending on whether repairs are basic or extensive. Adding the proposed film center’s hal...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

She’s never been to Utah. And she’s going to perform at the Egyptian Theatre. “I’m Egyptian, so, of course, it’s like home turf,” Shehata said during a phone interview from her home in Los Angeles. Shehata will appear Friday, Aug. 1, and Saturday, Aug. 2, with fellow comedian Dave Goldstein, who has appeared on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” The Comedy Network, Sirius/XM Satellite Ra...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Four years ago, the British street artist Banksy left a piece of graffiti — a stencil of a rodent, called the “Dirty Rat” — on the back door of the landmark Park City theater. Barton and crew immediately took the door off its hinges and put it in storage. The idea, Barton said Tuesday, was to sell the door — which, because of Banksy’s acclaim in the art...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
