Bits and Pieces
Wow, 'Cavalia' comes off well. The stage spectacular, a story of the bond between horse and human, titillates. It's sensual, primal, ethereal … the power and beauty of the horses is awe-inspiring and the show makes you appreciate the majestic animals more than ever.
Founder Normand Latourelle says that 'Cavalia' might stay for shows in Portland throughout December, saying it has been well-received in the Rose City. It's being held under the 'White Big Top,' at Northwest 12th Avenue and Quimby Street; tickets range from $34.50 to $189.50, and can be purchased by calling 1-866-999-8111 or visiting the box office at 1350 N.W. Savier St.
'Grimm' picked up
Good for the folks who run 'Grimm,' the hour-long police procedural/supernatural fairy tale show filmed in Portland that was picked up for the full, 22-episode season by NBC this week. In fact, 'Grimm' will get a coveted shot at a Thursday night time slot: 10 p.m. Dec. 8. It usually airs 9 p.m. Friday nights.
