FROM Amy O'Neal
Choreographer Amy O’Neal’s “Opposing Forces” Hip-hop has been firmly in the mainstream for decades when it comes to music, but less so when it comes to dance. Hip-hop and street dance styles rarely get the rarefied treatment of forms like ballet and modern. This weekend, however, hip-hop gets the fine art approach at Orange County’s Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Choreographer Amy O’Neal has created a theater piece featuring five B-boys from different street crews in Seattle, and it runs this Thursday through Saturday as part of the Segerstrom’s fourth annual Off-Center Festival. She discusses her work.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
