How many interviews can one sort through before they find a question that hasn’t been asked or answered? When it comes to co-founder and illustrious keyboardist, Ray Manzarek of The Doors, there aren’t many.

Despite ruining the floor of the Somerville Theatre with hot chocolate, having my balls crushed by a dancer, and my friend attempting to steal an expensive chain-link Russian dancer bra that had been flung onto her during the set before politely being asked to return it, The Slutcracker is by far one of the best ways to spend a weekend day (or, even better, night) this holiday season.

But yeah, it’s all the same: You’re born, you live a while, and then you die. During that whole time, it’s your journey. Everyone is going through life, the paperboy, the guy at NASA, experiencing and surviving life the best they can. It’s all the same goal. Continue reading
