Kingdom of the Ice Princess


OK, people. We've got tens of thousands of figure skating fans wandering around downtown during the next few days. Somebody remind Avista to turn on the falls.





In other skating developments, not only was the Ice Palace at Riverfront Park named one of the 10 best outdoor ice arenas by Outdoor magazine, but also, this last year, 1992 Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi included it in her list of "10 Great Places To Cut a Fine Figure Eight," published in USA Today. As Yamaguchi told The Inlander this week, "When I was touring with Stars on Ice, we always visited Spokane, and we stayed right near the park. That's one of the great settings for skating with the whole family."





Patty Duke Palouse Show


Patty Duke will warm up for her April appearance in Humble Boy at Actors Rep by appearing in a one-woman show called "Billion Dollar Baby" in the University of Idaho's New Works Festival at the Hartung Theater on Feb. 8-11 and Feb. 14-17. Four other short plays will round out the program each night. Visit www.uitheatre.com or call (208) 885-7212 or 885-6465.





They Have Hearts After All


Oscar loves comebacks and underdogs. How else to explain the nominations of Eddie Murphy, Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Earle Haley and the little girl who could in Little Miss Sunshine? How else to explain the exclusion of half of Brangelina and every single big-name actor in The Departed?





His Show Will Go On


The leader of Sirius Idaho Theater, John Dickinson, was a strong advocate of Touch, about a tragic introvert/extrovert attraction. Despite Dickinson's accidental death on Jan. 7, Sirius will go ahead with its production about the loss of a loved one on Jan. 25-27 and Jan. 31-Feb. 3 at the Kenworthy in Moscow. Visit www.kenworthy.org or call (208) 882-4127.





Acting for (and Like) Kids


On Friday, Jan. 26, from 6-9 pm -- as a benefit for the NIC Children's Center called "Black Ties and Tricycles" -- six otherwise dignified adults will race tiny three-wheelers around the barrel room of the CdA Cellars Winery, 3890 N. Schrieber Way. Tickets: $10; $15, at the door. Call (208) 769-5978.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
